Summary

Cass expected the one year anniversary of Johnny's death would be hard; at least as hard as her attempts have been to move on in life without her husband. She didn't expect to be haunted by him, seeing him everywhere. The more she fights these images, the stronger they become, until something must give... her sanity or her faith. 
In order to move on, she must confront her past. In order to confront her past, she must accept her future. Her past and future will collide, leaving either devastation or awakening in its wake. The choice is hers: return to the Path she'd left behind all those years ago; or forge her own future, regardless of the consequences. 
This debut novel from Michaela Mills tackles the subject of grief after the loss of a spouse, finding love again, and allowing oneself to face both the past and the future head-on.

    The general perception about preparing food is that it takes a lot of time and energy. This is true to some extent, but it is also true that many of us spend a lot of time on the food preparation rather than the actual cooking. This is what makes it a chore rather than an enjoyable experience.
     
    
    	However, food preparation need not be time consuming if you plan ahead and know how to manage your time skillfully.
     
    
    	In this book you'll discover numerous tips and ideas that will actually make food preparation easier and make it more fun:
     
    
    	This book features dozens of great food preparation and cooking ideas, including food handling safety, and preparing great meals at home. These are simple tips that all cooks in the kitchen can follow for cooking a delicious and safely prepared food.
     
    
    	The book covers  all of the following: 
    
    	* Meat and Poultry 
    
    	* Fish and Seafood 
    
    	* Fruit 
    
    	* Vegetables 
    
    	* Eggs, Cheese, and Other Dairy Products 
    
    	* Salads 
    
    	* Soups, Sauces, Gravies, and Stuffings 
    
    	* Herbs and Seasonings 
    
    	* Bread, Rolls, Cookies, and Cakes 
    
    	* Pancakes, Waffles, Pies, and Dessert 
    
    	* Beverages 
    
    	* General Food Storage 
    
    	* Home Preserving, Canning, Freezing, Drying
     
    
    	Here's just a small sample of the tips included: 
    
    	A mixture of olive oil and vinegar will tenderize meat. Rub the mixture on the meat and let it stand several hours before cooking. 
    
    	Another way to tenderize meat is to rub baking soda into it, let it stand for several hours, and then wash and cook it. 
    
    	Meats can be marinated in a plastic bag: Put the meat in the bag along with the marinade, seal the bag, and turn it a few times during the day. 
    
    	If you've forgotten to thaw meat but want to cook it anyway, cook it half as long again as you would if it were thawed. 
    
    	Meat will shrink less during roasting if it's cooked longer at a lower temperature. 
    
    	Since a roast will thaw more quickly if all sides are exposed to air, elevate it on a cake cooling rack-or use the burner grill from your range. Put newspaper or a plate under the rack to catch the water and other drippings. 
    
    	A shallow pan is better than a deep one for cooking a roast because it allows heat to circulate around the meat. 
    
    	If you need to defrost frozen ground beef quickly, try sprinkling it with the amount of salt recommended for cooking (salt is a great thawing agent), or heat it in your dishwasher turned to its drying cycle. 
    
    	A roast slices more easily if you let it stand for about 15 minutes after taking it from the oven. 
    
    	To eliminate most of the smoke and grease when broiling fatty meats, pour a cup of water into the bottom portion of the broiler pan before putting it in the oven. 
    
    	To speed up the ripening of' pears, tomatoes, or peaches, put them in a brown paper bag with a ripe apple. Punch some holes in the bag, and put it in a cool place out of direct sunlight. Or, put the 
    
    	fruit in a box and cover it with a newspaper to seal in the natural gases that promote ripening. 
    
    	To speed up the ripening of avocados, place them in a brown paper bag and store the bag in a warm place. Once ripe, you can retard spoilage by keeping them in the refrigerator. 
    
    	You can judge if an avocado is ripe by sticking a toothpick in the stem end. If it slides in and out with ease, the avocado is ready to eat. 
    
    	To keep .an unused avocado half from turning dark, press the pit back into place before refrigerating the uneaten half. 
    
    	For a perfect avocado half, cut the fruit in half lengthwise, pull the halves apart, and plunge a very sharp chefs knife into the pit. The pit will pull away cleanly with the knife. Remove the avocado halves from the shell with a spoon, or very gently with your fingers.

    How I Was Able To Finally Lose 14 Pounds In Only Four Weeks by Following the 5:2 Fast Diet and the 5:2 Diet Meal Plans & Recipes Cookbook  
    Are you overweight and fed up with constantly trying to lose those unhealthy pounds and are you also sick to death of being on a diet all the time.   
    Have you tried all of the latest ‘lose weight fast fads’ but they just didn't work for you short or long term.   
    If you did manage to lose weight after starving yourself, did you put it back on super fast when you stop ‘dieting’?  
    If any or all of the above rings a bell with you, then stop beating yourself up because it really isn't your fault they didn't work, they were just so wrong for you. 
    One of the main reasons most people fail to reach  their target weight is that being on any diet 7 days a week for months on end becomes so BORING, we just give up.  We are after all, only human and don't we just love those things that are bad for our health and waistline.  That's because the things that are bad for us are usually the most delicious and satisfying. 
    What if I told you there was another way and that you could eat normally for 5 days a week and only ‘diet’ for the other 2 days.  Sounds too good to be true doesn't it, but that is exactly what the 5:2 Fast Diet can do for you.   
    This is the scientifically proven easy weight loss system that works by letting you eat normally five days a week but on the other two days you eat between 500 - 600 calories.  It really is that simple!! 
    What would it feel like to fit into your favourite clothes that you haven’t been able to wear for ages?  How would you like to meet up with old friends and family and catch their sideways glances at the new slim you?  
    To help you reach that goal and lose that stubborn weight, this 5:2 Diet Meal Plans & Recipes cookbook contains all the information and delicious recipes you need to follow the 5:2 Diet and I promise you, that you WILL lose 3-5 lbs every week if you follow this diet plan. 
    The 21 Meal Plans with Recipes cookbook make it really simple to follow the 5:2 Diet because all the thinking and planning has been done for you.  The food is so easy to cook, you will hardly know you are dieting.  It makes sense to plan out your food on your fasting days because you don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen when you are trying to eat less. 
    There are over 40 recipes, carefully put together with a balance of protein and carbohydrates. They will satisfy even the hungriest appetites on your two fasting days and they are not just smaller portions 
    Menus are set out in either 1, 2 or 4 portions depending on ingredients and are calorie grouped. You should cook bigger batches and freeze the extra portions for other fasting days. This will save you cooking every fasting day which should make it a lot easier.  Many recipes are suitable for freezing and these have been marked as such. 
    So, stop stalling and grab this book TODAY and start losing that unhealthy weight FAST
