The Essential Dessert Cookbook (USED)

$14.99
More Info
Dessert is an exquisite indulgence that gives true pleasure, but in a duller world is completely expendable. The names of older desserts reflected this ... trifle, syllabub, flummery, and fool. Yet these charming concoctions live on to defy their names and prove their worth. This book, featuring over 600 full-color photographs, includes desserts that can be whipped up in minutes; others need to chill for a couple of hours (torture, but the results are worth it); and a few are works of art, oozing chocolate and cream, and demanding a day to be lovingly fussed over.

The Great Meat Cookbook (USED)

$15.99
More Info

In the last decade since the publication of Bruce Aidells's hugely successful The Complete Meat Cookbook, called by the Washington Post "authoritative" and "all-encompassing," the world of meat cookery has changed radically. With the rise of small farmers and the Internet, a more diverse supply is available-- not only of beef, pork, lamb, and veal, but also of bison, venison, and goat. Today's shopper confronts a host of bewildering, often misleading labels: "certified organic," "humanely raised," "vegetarian diet," and many more.

Whether the cook shops at the local farmers' market or the supermarket, The Great Meat Cookbook is the definitive guide to the new landscape. In sidebars illustrated with color photographs of each cut, Aidells shows how to pick the best steaks, chop, roasts, and ribs. With hundreds of recipes, including "Great Meat Dishes of the World" like Beef Fillet stuffed with Parmesan and Proscuitto; budget-friendly dishes like Melt-in-Your-Mouth Pork Shoulder; speedy dinners like Mushroom-Stuffed T Bone Lamb Chops, and charcuterie and sausage selections, Aidells provides all the information needed for juicy results every time.

The Rotisserie Grilling Cookbook; Surefire Recipes & Foolproof Techniques

$9.99
More Info

Just about anyone can grill a burger or steak without a cookbook, but rotisserie grilling is tricky. The Rotisserie Grilling Cookbook is your secret weapon.

With everyday grilling, most people cook things with roughly even thickness and they can tell when the meats are done just by eyeballing them. Consider something bigger, like a leg of lamb, a whole turkey, or a full pork shoulder, and you have a problem--most grills will completely char the outside long before the inside is cooked to a safe temperature. The solution: get a rotisserie.

The Rotisserie Grilling Cookbook shows how to set up, maintain, use and troubleshoot a rotisserie spit. It includes 105 recipes to expand your outdoor cooking repertoire, including a dry-brined Thanksgiving turkey, a whole country ham for other holidays, a whole chicken, duck, game hens, and big cuts like a beef ribeye roast or a leg of lamb. Beyond the meat recipes that are the core of the book, it includes rubs, glazes, and mops that are specifically crafted for long, slow cooking over a rotisserie, and even some ideas, like a spit-roasted whole pineapple, from beyond the world of poultry and meats.

The Stocked Kitchen (USED)

$12.99
More Info
We've all had that moment during the day when we ask with a pit in our stomach, "What am I going to make for dinner?" We stand in our kitchens having a conversation with ourselves (hopefully silently), "I don't have anything to make.... What I planned doesn't sound good.... I don't have any time to cook let alone get to the store."

Families across the country are continually searching for a way to make the process easier. Many get discouraged into pre-packaged complacency, which doesn't satisfy any real cravings. Bookstores contain myriad cookbooks toting catch phrases like "Quick and Simple" or "Cheap and Easy." The recipes may be quick, but they often require readers to purchase random ingredients they'll never use again. As a result, home cooks find themselves burdened with cluttered pantries, refrigerators, and cupboards filled with hundreds of dollars of cookbooks and specialty items like "red pepper paste" and are still left without an easy to use, versatile, and effective system for getting dinner on the table. That's where Sarah Kallio, Stacey Krastins, and "The Stocked Kitchen "comes in!

The Stocked Kitchen(TM) is the first complete meal creation system with only one standard list of groceries. If your kitchen is "Stocked" with these ingredients you will always have what you need to create any of the 300 delicious recipes found in this book. These recipes have been used for all of the authors' own dining needs, including meals for drop-in guests, special occasions, and every-night family dinners. "The Stocked Kitchen "encompasses all parts of the meal creation process from shopping, to storing, to cooking, to serving. The results are delicious, "guest worthy" meals made from real, basic ingredients.

Sarah and Stacey have proven The Stocked Kitchen(TM) system works. It has reduced their grocery bills, stress levels, trips to the market, and food waste. Create more delicious meals while removing the handcuffs of pre-planning. One grocery list, endless recipes!

Whiskey in a Teacup

$35.00
More Info
Academy Award-winning actress, producer, and entrepreneur Reese Witherspoon invites you into her world, where she infuses the southern style, parties, and traditions she loves with contemporary flair and charm.

Reese Witherspoon's grandmother Dorothea always said that a combination of beauty and strength made southern women "whiskey in a teacup." We may be delicate and ornamental on the outside, she said, but inside we're strong and fiery.

Reese's southern heritage informs her whole life, and she loves sharing the joys of southern living with practically everyone she meets. She takes the South wherever she goes with bluegrass, big holiday parties, and plenty of Dorothea's fried chicken. It's reflected in how she entertains, decorates her home, and makes holidays special for her kids--not to mention how she talks, dances, and does her hair (in these pages, you will learn Reese's fail-proof, only slightly insane hot-roller technique). Reese loves sharing Dorothea's most delicious recipes as well as her favorite southern traditions, from midnight barn parties to backyard bridal showers, magical Christmas mornings to rollicking honky-tonks.

It's easy to bring a little bit of Reese's world into your home, no matter where you live. After all, there's a southern side to every place in the world, right?
