Summary

Just in time for the holidays! Joan Reeves, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Contemporary Romance, shares 52 Cake Recipes and more than a dozen basic and specialty Frosting Recipes collected from 3 generations of home bakers. 
 
In a world where you can get cake at a fast food restaurant for a relatively cheap price, why bake one? There are many reasons beginning with the incredible taste of a home-baked cake and ending with the Zen of cake baking. 
 
There is something immensely satisfying about coming home after a really bad day at work and making a cake. The cake preparation process of combining ingredients, creaming, blending, and mixing is very Zen-like. In about an hour you can go from no cake to cake on the table, and your mood can go from frazzled to satisfied. 
 
The 52 cake recipes in this book are family recipes collected through the years by Joan. The recipes are from her grandmother, her mother, friends, and other family members. Some recipes are complex and time-intensive. Other recipes use the convenience of cake mixes, and others are dump cakes that offer time-saving convenience and good taste. Try a different cake every week so you can also claim that Friday Is Cake Day!

    This book summary is created for individuals who want to flesh out the important contents and are too busy to go through the entire book. This book is not intended to replace the original book. 
     Ever felt like you have to constantly tidy up just to maintain a lasting order in your living space? Do your papers continue to pile up like walls threatening to close in on you? Do your garments continue to heap up like an impassable mountain of interwoven fabric? Then perhaps you're doing it wrong. 
    Marie Kondo, world-renowned Japanese author and tidying consultant, introduces you to a technique of organizing you have never known before. This innovative way of tidying promises that you will only ever have to do it once—you will never have to tidy up again. Other home-organizing techniques promote tidying by location. What people do not know is that it will take you inordinate amounts of time to sort through your belongings if you implement such methods. Marie Kondo's technique—the KonMari method—is a type of progressive organization that boasts long-lasting results. Countless success stories and a three-month waiting list can attest to the effectiveness of the KonMari technique. 
    Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up gives an in depth set of instructions for determining which of your belongings spark joy and which simply do not. A bestseller in several countries, this book highlights the new trend that has taken Tokyo by storm. Come home to a place free of clutter, and discover the wonders of a tidy home.

    Yankee Come Home - On the Road...

    Yankee Come Home explores one family's history in Cuba, and through it, the intense, complex, smoldering relationship between the island nation and its leviathan neighbor. 
     
    In Cuba's most entrancing, storied landscape, William Craig is searching for a history that his family has lost-and now needs to recover. He's looking for the truth about his mysterious great-grandfather, Thomas O'Brien, a self-proclaimed hero of the "splendid little war" who left a legacy of glorious, painful lies. Living a dream that haunts American hearts-the dream of escaping the past, of becoming who we say we are-"Papa" died leaving his own children wondering who he'd really been. 
     
    Along the way, Craig searches for the place where Gilded Age America abandoned republican ideals in favor of imperial ambition-and where his own generation of Americans now preside over arbitrary imprisonment and systematized torture. "I needed to see Guantánamo the way some Americans needed to drive through the night to kneel at JFK's coffin, and others are drawn to Ground Zero," he writes. "Sometimes, we don't know what we've lost until we trace the scars." Traveling with Craig, readers will join in present-day adventures: spirit-possession rituals, black market odysseys, roots-music epiphanies, and discovering the continuing impact of the war in 1898 on both Cuba and America. 
     
    The story of the United States in Cuba is fascinating, but none too flattering. Like the reality of "Papa" O'Brien's identity, it reflects more hubris than heroism, more avarice than sacrifice. In the end, however, Craig's journey in Yankee Come Home is a transformation from disillusionment to redemption.

  • The German Shepherd Big Book: All About the German Shepherd Breed - What Every Shepherd Owner Needs to Know About His or Her Pet - cover

    You love German Shepherds. They are great family dogs exhibiting fierce loyalty, impressive good looks, intelligence, courage, and a highly protective nature. Who can blame you for wanting a German Shepherd as your lifelong "best friend" and protector? Not so fast! While it's true that the German Shepherd is a popular, highly valued and desirable canine companion; the breed, much like all breeds, is not a perfect fit for every person, setting, lifestyle or family situation. Amy Morford created the The German Shepherd Big Book to help you figure out if a German Shepherd is a good pet for your individual needs as well as determining if you can meet the demanding emotional and physical requirements of the breed. This book is not intended as a training guide. It was created to familiarize you with the German's Shepherd's background, main characteristics, dominant traits, and health concerns; with tips on selection and care. Morford kicks off with a fascinating history of the breed--thoroughly explaining how a dog that was originally bred to herd sheep morphed into a drug and cadaver discovery working dog; a service and therapy dog to the blind, deaf, and disabled; protective family pet, military dog or police patrol partner. In the second chapter, Morford examines the time, money, energy-level, and lifestyle required to meet the needs of a German Shepherd so that both the dog and its human companion aren't miserable because of a failure to provide proper food, shelter, exercise, and companionship. To assist in selecting your first German Shepherd, Morford compares and contrasts American versus German bloodlines; male versus female: a puppy versus an adult dog; various coat types and colors; and breeder versus rescue adoption. Two must-read chapters concern how to select a breeder and common health problems experienced by the breed. Don't buy a German Shepherd without reading those chapters!

    Men like Keaton Albertson should be put to sleep.  At least, that’s what he was told by his last girlfriend. As a self-proclaimed ladies’ man, Keaton has many times ventured into the dank realms of female sensuality and has thoroughly satisfied many wanton women’s desires.  Some of his personal experiences have been enlightening and meaningful.  Others have been degrading and marked with the objectification of the fairer sex as being nothing more than tapestries of meat. Keaton chose to write of these latter experiences to help others understand his affliction of being burdened with a massive penis and a consequential moral obligation to share this endowment with multitudes of deficient vaginas.  SKANKS is a non-fiction collection of crass stories that detail the most poignant of Keaton’s sexual encounters with a diverse selection of tawdry tarts.  The erotic annals within this work describe carnal acts with a wonderful alliteration of juvenile slang. Complete with rich dialogue and pornographic-quality rhetoric, SKANKS is replete with politically incorrect, masculine humor for those who enjoy reading crude satire.
