"Dinner was the time we all sat together and enjoyed Mom's cooking, but it was also the place we discussed the day, argued, laughed and basically caught up with each other. One thing Mom and Dad taught us was that "no one" ate before the other. We always waited for each other and we all waited for Dad to sit down to start. What I remember the most was how good everything tasted. With a limited amount of money Mom created an abundance of easy, ethnic, earthy and Italian dishes. I have written this book for her and it is my hope that you will enjoy cooking her recipes as much as she loved Cooking For Her Family."

Dr. Oz fans are endlessly curious about what he and his family eat. They assume that the family of "America's Doctor" must live on a diet of broccoli and bean sprouts and be sworn martyrs in the church of joyless nutrient consumption. This couldn't be further from the truth. The Oz family (including Lisa's husband Mehmet) love food. It just has to be good food--not processed, artificially flavored or filled with empty calories. The Ozes understand the power of food and its ability to heal, and in The Oz Family Kitchen they will, for the first time, share their knowledge, passion and recipes. This healthy eating cookbook has more than 100 simple, delicious recipes from the Oz Family collection, including pastas, soups, sandwiches, entrees, smoothies, and desserts, such as Mehmet's favorite birthday “Almost German Chocolate Cake", Daphne's special " Glazed Acorn Squash with Savory Seeds,”, and the Oz family’s “Coconut-Crusted Chicken". The book offers helpful advice on cooking healthy meals for the whole family, pantry stocking, and smart shopping, as well as nutrition tips and health insights from Dr. Oz. Whether you are looking to eat healthier, more delicious meal, or simply get a glimpse into the Oz family lifestyle, The Oz Family Kitchen is an essential tool you’re looking for.

The Wisdom of the Chinese Kitchen, with its 150 recipes culled from a lifetime of family meals and culinary instruction, is much more than a cookbook. It is a daughter's tribute -- a collection of personal memories of the philosophy and superstitions behind culinary traditions that have been passed down through her Cantonese family, in which each ingredient has its own singular importance, the preparation of a meal is part of the joy of life, and the proper creation of a dish can have a favorable influence on health and good fortune. Each chapter begins with its own engaging story, offering insight into the Chinese beliefs that surround life-enhancing and spiritually calming meals. In addition, personal family photographs illustrate these stories and capture the spirit of China before the Revolution, when Young's family lived in Canton, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. The first part, "Mastering the Fundamentals," provides instruction on the arts of steaming and stir-frying; the preparation of rice, panfried, and braised dishes; the proper selection of produce; and the fine arts of chopping and slicing. Part Two, "The Art of Celebration," concentrates on the more elaborate, complex, and meaningful dishes -- such as Shark's Fin Soup and West Lake Duck -- that are usually made with rare ingredients, and sweets such as Water Chestnut Cake and Sesame Balls. The final part, "Achieving Yin-Yang Harmony," explores the many Chinese beliefs about the healing properties of ginseng, gingko nuts, soybeans, dong quai, and the many vegetable and fruit soup preparations that balance and nourish the body. The stories and recipes combine to demonstrate the range of Cantonese cooking, from rich flavors and honored combinations to an overall appreciation of health, well-being, and prosperity. In addition to the recipes, Young provides a complete glossary of dried herbs, spices, and fresh produce, accompanied by identifying photos and tips on where to purchase them. Unique traditional dishes, such as Savory Rice Tamales and Shrimp Dumplings, are also illustrated step by step, making the book easy to use. The central full-color photo section captures details of New Year's dishes and the Chinese home decorated in celebration, reminding one that these time-honored traditions live on, and the meals and their creation are connections to the past.

Two best-selling queer romance stories by multi-published authors Tia Fielding and Lisa Henry combined together in one box set! Contains the stories: Family Recipe: Justin O'Dwyer is 19. Four days ago, his mother died of a drug overdose, and now Justin is back in Enterprise, Oregon, trying to figure out how to raise the younger siblings he's afraid of losing to the foster system. Justin is completely out of his depth. Harper is six, and hates him. Wyatt is four and doesn't remember him. And baby Scarlett, at fourteen months, has never even met her big brother before. When Scarlett gets sick and won't stop screaming, and when Harper runs off in the middle of the night, Justin is at the end of his tether. In desperation, he knocks on a neighbor's door begging for help. Del Abbot is 38, and living in his grandparents' old place in Enterprise after his marriage broke down and he lost his restaurant in the divorce. He's a chef, even had his own show on cable for a while, but now he's looking for a new start, if he could just figure out what exactly that entails. When the O'Dwyer family barrels into his life one night, Del can't refuse to help. What begins as a trip to the hospital becomes a regular child-minding gig while Justin struggles to find his feet. And the more time Del spends with Justin, the more they both want more than friendship. But small town life comes with its own bigotry, and, in Justin's case, that bigotry has always been close to home. When an act of violence threatens to destroy the small family they've built, both Justin and Del need to put aside their pasts and reach for their future together.Recipe for Two: Wyatt Abbot is 19. On the outside, he lives the perfect life. He has a loving family, he's wealthy, and he has just been given the opportunity to travel to Paris and train under one of the world's best pastry chefs. But underneath all that, Wyatt is struggling. He's battling anxiety, he's scared of the future, and he's struggling to come to terms with the fact that he's genderfluid. Izzy Kostas is 28, and on parole. When he gets a job at Abbot Organic Produce, it's a chance for a new start. Izzy has his own demons he's trying to overcome, but meeting Wyatt throws even more complications his way. Izzy has always thought of himself as straight, and certainly didn't expect to fall for his boss's little brother. When Izzy is blamed for putting the Abbots at risk, it jeopardizes everything he and Wyatt have begun to build together. Izzy knows how important family is to Wyatt, and he doesn't want him to have to take sides. But when it comes to found families, nobody is perfect, and there's always room for another seat at the table.
