"... an illustrated toolbox of tips and ideas for organizing, entertaining, and savoring a stylish life. When she arrived at Madame Chic's Parisian apartment as a foreign exchange student, Jennifer Scott was a casual California girl who thought sweatpants wore appropriate street attire. Madame Chic took Jennifer under her wing and tutored her in the secrets of how the French elevate the little things in life to the art of living. Years later, Jennifer was back in California with a husband, two young daughters, a dog, and her first home. Every day she confronted mundane duties like folding laundry and unloading the dishwasher, and she began to think about Madame Chic's home--how the breakfast table was set beautifully the night before, the music that always played in the background, the calm of Madame and Monsieur Chic's ritual cocktail hour together. Jennifer wanted that life. She decided to see what would happen if she didn't perform her chores impatiently or mindlessly, if, instead, she could live like Madame Chic. At Home with Madame Chic reveals the secrets to having a happy, fulfilling, and passionate life at home"-- Provided by publisher.
"Many chefs keep notebooks in their kitchens, filled with recipe ideas, new ways to use an ingredient, and records of what did or did not work. But how often do ordinary food lovers get to peek inside? Now Harold Dieterle, chef-owner of New York City's popular restaurants Perilla, Kin Shop, and The Marrow, and Season 1 champion of the hit TV show Top Chef, pulls back the curtain to give every home cook a look inside his kitchen. Incorporating his eclectic mix of New American, Italian, Thai, and German influences, this cookbook offers restaurant-caliber dishes that can be easily prepared at home. While each dish comprises several elements, one standout ingredient or component will be identified in each and accompanied by Harold's notebook entry sharing why that ingredient is so special offering a number of additional ways to use it. Dishes include: Fresh Ricotta Cheese* with Acorn Squash Tempura, Truffle Honey, and Toasted Bread; Wild Chive* Tagliatelli with Shrimp, Cuttlefish, Shallots, and Sea Urchin Sauce; Roasted Whole Chicken with Spaetzle*, Chestnuts, and Persimmons; Grilled Venison Sirloin with Potato-Leek Gratin, Swiss Chard, and Huckleberry* Sauce; Warm Flourless Chocolate and Peanut Butter Soufflé Cake with Coffee Crème Anglaise*; and many more!" -- Provided by publisher.

"Somehow, a set of deeply conservative assumptions about children -- what they're like and how they should be raised -- have congealed into the conventional wisdom in our society. Parents are accused of being both permissive and overprotective, unwilling to set limits and afraid to let their kids fail. Young people, meanwhile, are routinely described as entitled and narcissistic. . . among other unflattering adjectives. In The Myth of the Spoiled Child, Alfie Kohn systematically debunks these beliefs -- not only challenging erroneous factual claims but also exposing the troubling ideology that underlies them. Complaints about pushover parents and coddled kids are hardly new, he shows, and there is no evidence that either phenomenon is especially widespread today -- let alone more common than in previous generations. Moreover, new research reveals that helicopter parenting is quite rare and, surprisingly, may do more good than harm when it does occur. The major threat to healthy child development, Kohn argues, is posed by parenting that is too controlling rather than too indulgent." -- Publisher's description.
