New Arrivals - Cooking, homemaking, and family

The closer an ingredient is to its field or branch, the richer its flavor and the deeper its meaning. Knowing this and the power of a setting to create great food memories, Chef Eric and Jill Skoken created the 130-acre Black Cat Farm that supplies the bounty of their two popular restaurants, a booth at the Boulder farmer's market, CSA families, and, of course, their old farmhouse, Bramble Hill. Inspired by Chef Eric's love of sharing recipes, knowledge and fun stories at the market, Farm Fork Food tells the story of Black Cat Farm and its restaurants.

The 45 recipes combine greens and grains in dishes for all meal occasions and include ingredients such as kale, chard, spinach, escarole, nettles, and collards.

"Who doesn't want a delicious, home-cooked meal to appear magically at their doorstep on a chilly evening? But work, kids, and life get in the way, even in the most well-intentioned homes. In The Soup Club Cookbook, four moms show how to make this fantasy a reality with 150 recipes for soups from favorites (Jewish Chicken Noodle, Italian Wedding) to fancy (Sunchoke Bisque, Senegalese Peanut), and dozens of filling and delish sides, such as Soy Simmered Chicken Wings and Pickled Brussels Spouts. The authors, who are neighbors on New York's Lower East Side, make this soup book extra delicious--and inspiring--by explaining how to start the same kind of soup club that they did: each person makes soup once a month and delivers it to the other women with garnishes and instructions for serving. That's at least three meals a month you don't have to cook or order. And you have a good excuse to see your friends"-- Provided by publisher.

"Already the biological parents of a seven-year-old son and a five-year-old daughter, Claude Knobler and his wife decided to adopt Nati, a five-year-old Ethiopian boy who seemed different from Knobler in every conceivable way. In this wonderfully written memoir, Knobler explains how his experiences raising Nati led him to learn a lesson that applied equally well to parenting his biological children: It's essential to spend the time we are given with our children to love them and enjoy them, rather than push and mold them into who we think they should be"-- Provided by publisher.
