Jen's Favorite Books

This sections highlights some of Jennifer's favorite books - both hardcore culinary tomes as well as lighter, culinary-related reading.

I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence

At first glance, it appears to be just a parody of a dated entertaining guide, however Amy actually provides us with real, tasty – albeit quirky – recipes from the 70’s that bring back plenty of memories for me. I watched Aunts, Uncles, and friends show up at family functions with plates of classic all-American wonders!

Eat, Pray, Love

A great summer read, but an even better travel read, her tales of dark-eyed men, wise gurus, and breathtaking sites will have you grinning. Did she leave anything out? Certainly not the tongue and cheek humor of a smart and happening lady who has experienced tough times yet loved deeply.

The Power of Nice

Is it really so important to be nice? Linda and Robin share the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of success. You’ll love their inspirational personal stories, surprising research from famous physiologists and socialists, and the use of plain common sense – their trademark.

Whole Grains Every Day Every Way

Lorna Sass has written an exciting book on grains that will appeal to anyone, meat-eating, vegetarian, vegan. Ideal for the home cook who wants to learn more about whole grains, its easy, time-saving recipes will become a valued resource in your kitchen.
