Summary

“A brilliant collection of recipes, receipts, restoratives and remarkable cures from the Georgian era . . . a joy to read out to your friends and family.” —Books Monthly Discover the recipes for Mrs. Rooke’s Very Good Plum Cake and Lady Harbord’s Marigold Cheese. Learn how to preserve gooseberries “as green as they grow” and make Sir Theodore Colladon’s Peach Flower Syrup. Feast on Lady St. Quintin’s Dutch Pudding and Mrs. Eall’s Candied Cowslips. Then wash it all down with Lady Strickland’s Strong Mead or some Right Red Dutch Currant Wine. These are just some of the delightful Georgian recipes found in the receipt books of Sabine Winn, the eighteenth-century Swiss-born wife of Sir Rowland Winn, 5th Baronet Nostell of the impressive Palladian mansion, Nostell Priory in Yorkshire. Using centuries-old cookbooks, newspaper clippings, old family recipes and contributions from noble friends, Lady Winn created a wonderfully eclectic collection of mouthwatering dishes that are presented in this new volume for modern readers to enjoy. Mistrustful of English doctors, Sabine’s receipt books also contain scores of remedies for a whole series of complaints, such as: The Best Thing in the World for Languishing Spirits or Fatigue after a Journey; Mrs Aylott’s Excellent Remedy for Colic; Aunt Barrington’s Cure for Pleurisy; An Approved Medicine to Drive the Scurvy or any other Ill Humour out of a Man’s Body; and A Diet Drink to Cure all Manner of Hurts and Wounds.“I found the herbal use in the recipes intriguing, creative, and sometimes delightfully odd . . . provides an interesting slice of 18th century Georgian life in England.” —American Herb Association Quarterly

    For those who have not given up, despite setbacks and failures, The Rule of Nines reveals a simple approach for success through necessary behavioral changes for personal goal achievement.Some people struggle every single day to improve but seem to take three steps back for every two steps forward. People tell them it’s because they lack willpower or because they’re weak or don’t want something badly enough. But they know that’s not true. Health and Wellness coach Kathlyn Heim helps those who are constantly struggling to create lasting change in their lives finally make their changes stick. The Rule of Nines lays out an individualized 9-step approach to goal identification, achievement, and permanent success that helps readers understand why they’ve failed in the past and shows them how to effectively change their actions moving forward. Although there are plenty of goal achievement guides, Kathlyn works in the missing piece of deep self-reflection that’s necessary for lasting change. Rather than being based on an external reward system, The Rule of Nines focuses on an internal reward system through self-discovery, making it possible for readers to live the life they desire and proving that it really is never too late to change.

    What if all the things you’d been told would make you happy were red herrings? 
     
    Jill Stark was living the dream. And then it all fell apart. It forced her to ask if she’d been sold a lie. From the ashes of Jill’s epic breakdown and through her own battles with mental-health issues comes this raw, funny, and uplifting exploration of our age of anxiety. Why, she asks, in a western world with more opportunity, choice, and wealth than ever before, are so many of us depressed, anxious, and medicated? When we’ve never had more ways to connect, why do we feel so profoundly disconnected? And could it be that our relentless pursuit of happiness is making us miserable?
     
    Road-testing neuroscience’s latest psychological frontiers in compassion, acceptance, gratitude, play, hope and solitude, Jill turns the happiness fairytale on its head. What would happen if we stopped chasing, stayed still, and found calm and meaning in places we least expected?
