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!

  • God and Football - Faith and Fanaticism in the Southeastern Conference - cover

    God and Football - Faith and...

    At the age of 8, Chad Gibbs attended his first Southeastern Conference football game.  Since then he has been in a constant battle to not let his love of all things pigskin consume him.  As a Christian, Gibbs knows he cannot serve two masters, but at times his faith is overwhelmed by his fanaticism.  He is not alone.
    
    In 2008 over six million people attended an SEC football game.  They spend thousands on season tickets, donate millions to athletic departments, and for three months a year order their entire lives around the schedule of their favorite team. 
    
    Gibbs and his six million friends do not live in a spiritually void land where such borderline idol worship would normally be accepted.  They live in the American South, where according to the 2008 American Religious Identification Survey, 84 percent identify themselves as Christians.  
    
    This apparent contradiction that Gibbs sees in his own life, and in millions of others, has led him to journey to each of the twelve schools to spend time with rabid, Christian fans of various ages and denominations.  Through his journey he hopes to learn how others are able to balance their passion for their team with their devotion to God.  And if Gibbs learns others are just as messed up as he is, at least he will know he is not alone.

    It's bedtime in the Star Wars galaxy, and Darth Vader's parenting skills are tested anew in this delightful follow-up to the breakout New York Times bestsellers Darth Vader™ and Son and Vader's™ Little Princess. In this Episode, the Sith Lord must soothe his rambunctious twins, Luke and Leia—who are not ready to sleep and who insist on a story. As Vader reads, the book looks in on favorite creatures, droids, and characters, such as Yoda, R2-D2, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Darth Maul, Admiral Ackbar, Boba Fett, and many others as they tuck in, yawn, and settle down to dream. As ever, Jeffrey Brown's charming illustrations and humor glow throughout, playing on children's book conventions to enchant adults and kids alike.

    A unique chapter in the history of firearms, the multibarrel, hand-cranked Gatling gun was one of the first practical rapid-fire weapons ever to be used in battle. It changed warfare by introducing the capability to project deadly, high-intensity fire on the battlefield, and portended the devastation that automatic weapons would wreak in World War I. During its 50-year career, it saw widespread service with US, British, and other forces on a host of battlefields through conflicts in Zululand and the American West, to the Spanish-American War. Although it saw widespread use in the hands of industrialized nations against various groups of indigenous native warriors, it was famously left behind by Custer at the battle of the Little Bighorn, where some argue it could have made all the difference. Featuring full-colour artwork plus contemporary and close-up photographs, this engaging study investigates the origins, development, combat use, and lasting influence of the formidable Gatling gun.
