100 Days of Real Food On a Budget

100 Days of Real Food On a Budget

$29.99
More Info

The author of the phenomenal bestselling 100 Days of Real Food series addresses the most common concern of her readers--how to cut out processed food on a tight budget--in this full-color cookbook with shopping lists and prices for each recipe.

Millions of American families are discovering the dangers of eating processed food. But wholesome, fresh ingredients can seem more expensive--from buying organic grains, dairy, and produce to the issue of food waste as people learn to plan and cook in new ways.

With her hugely popular 100 Days of Real Food blog and her two bestselling books, Lisa Leake has been a leader in helping everyday families move away from processed foods. She also understands the concerns of her followers who want to eat better without breaking the bank! In 100 Days of Real Food: On a Budget she shows readers how to make a variety of unprocessed dishes for $15 or less a recipe.

Unlike other budget cookbooks that only calculate the cost per serving (have you ever tried to buy just 1/4 cup of sour cream?), this incredibly practical book gives you the exact total cost for all the necessary ingredients for each dish, helping busy families even on the tightest budget plan the meals that will work for them. Lisa provides delicious recipes for breakfast, packed lunch, and dinner, as well as snacks and desserts, including:

  • Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
  • Quiche with an Easy Whole-Wheat Crust
  • Sweet Potato and Black Bean Cakes
  • Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins with Toasted Coconut
  • Green Apple Slaw
  • Chicken Burrito Bowls
  • Cheesy Pasta and Cauliflower Bake
  • Apple Glazed Pork Chops
  • Sausage and Pepper Tacos
  • Asian Chicken Lettuce Cups
  • Oatmeal Cookie Energy Bites
  • Pina Colada Frozen Yogurt Pops
  • In addition to the wallet-friendly recipes, Lisa shares practical secrets for saving money in the kitchen: learning to plan ahead, getting the best deals on staple items, knowing what to make versus what to buy, growing your own herbs, and even reducing waste--which is currently twenty percent of all food purchased!

    100 Million Years of Food

    $26.00
    More Info

    A fascinating tour through the evolution of the human diet, and how we can improve our health by understanding our complicated history with food.

    There are few areas of modern life that are burdened by as much information and advice, often contradictory, as our diet and health: eat a lot of meat, eat no meat; whole-grains are healthy, whole-grains are a disaster; eat everything in moderation; eat only certain foods--and on and on. In 100 Million Years of Food biological anthropologist Stephen Le explains how cuisines of different cultures are a result of centuries of evolution, finely tuned to our biology and surroundings. Today many cultures have strayed from their ancestral diets, relying instead on mass-produced food often made with chemicals that may be contributing to a rise in so-called Western diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, and obesity.

    Travelling around the world to places as far-flung as Vietnam, Kenya, India, and the US, Stephen Le introduces us to people who are growing, cooking, and eating food using both traditional and modern methods, striving for a sustainable, healthy diet. In clear, compelling arguments based on scientific research, Le contends that our ancestral diets provide the best first line of defense in protecting our health and providing a balanced diet. Fast-food diets, as well as strict regimens like paleo or vegan, in effect highjack our biology and ignore the complex nature of our bodies. In 100 Million Years of Food Le takes us on a guided tour of evolution, demonstrating how our diets are the result of millions of years of history, and how we can return to a sustainable, healthier way of eating.

    "Your gift giv­ing prob­lems are now over--just stock up on The 100 Most Jew­ish Foods. . . . The appro­pri­ate gift for any occa­sion."
    --Jewish Book Council

    "[A] love letter--to food, family, faith and identity, and the deliciously tangled way they come together."
    --NPR's The Salt

    With contributions from Ruth Reichl, Éric Ripert, Joan Nathan, Michael Solomonov, Dan Barber, Yotam Ottolenghi, Tom Colicchio, Maira Kalman, Melissa Clark, and many more!

    Tablet's list of the 100 most Jewish foods is not about the most popular Jewish foods, or the tastiest, or even the most enduring. It's a list of the most significant foods culturally and historically to the Jewish people, explored deeply with essays, recipes, stories, and context. Some of the dishes are no longer cooked at home, and some are not even dishes in the traditional sense (store-bought cereal and Stella D'oro cookies, for example). The entire list is up for debate, which is what makes this book so much fun. Many of the foods are delicious (such as babka and shakshuka). Others make us wonder how they've survived as long as they have (such as unhatched chicken eggs and jellied calves' feet). As expected, many Jewish (and now universal) favorites like matzo balls, pickles, cheesecake, blintzes, and chopped liver make the list. The recipes are global and represent all contingencies of the Jewish experience. Contributors include Ruth Reichl, Éric Ripert, Joan Nathan, Michael Solomonov, Dan Barber, Gail Simmons, Yotam Ottolenghi, Tom Colicchio, Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, Maira Kalman, Action Bronson, Daphne Merkin, Shalom Auslander, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, and Phil Rosenthal, among many others. Presented in a gifty package, The 100 Most Jewish Foods is the perfect book to dip into, quote from, cook from, and launch a spirited debate.

    100 Recipes : The Absolute Best Ways to Make the True Essentials

    $40.00

    A provocative, handpicked collection of relevant (and surprising) essential recipes for today's cook.

    We have countless recipes at our disposal today but what are the real keepers, the ones that don't just feed us when we're hungry or impress our friends on Saturday night, but inspire us to get into the kitchen? At the forefront of American cooking for more than 20 years, the editors at America's Test Kitchen have answered this question in an essential collection of recipes that you won't find anywhere else: 100 Recipes Everyone Should Know How to Make. Organized into three recipe sections--Absolute Essentials, Surprising Essentials, and Global Essentials--each recipe is preceded by a thought-provoking essay that positions the dish. For example, Treating Pasta Like Rice Simplifies Everything; A Covered Pot Is a Surprisingly Good Place to Roast a Chicken; and Re-imagine Pie in a Skillet to Simplify the Process. You'll find useful workday recipes like a killer tomato sauce that's almost as easy as opening a jar of the store-bought stuff; genius techniques for producing amazing flavor--try poaching chicken breasts over a garlic-and-soy- spiked brine (trust us, it's that good); and familiar favorites reinvigorated--the best beef stew comes from Spain (and it's even easier to make than the stateside stew you've been eating for years). Gorgeous photography (shot right in the test kitchen) accompanies every recipe, revealing the finished dish as well as highlights of its preparation. Likely to stir debate among anyone interested in food and cooking, 100 Recipes Everyone Should Know How to Make provides a snapshot of how we cook today and will galvanize even the most jaded cook to get into the kitchen.

    More Info
    Americans love talking about food almost as much as they love eating it, and to describe it, English speakers partake of an impressive spread of fascinating words. 100 Words for Foodies presents a delectable sampler of these words, words that grace the tables of restaurants and are bandied about the kitchen at home.

    The words selected for this book cover the whole gamut of foodie terminology. There are words for implements and vessels, like mezzaluna and tagine, alongside the names of techniques, like macerate, and methods, like deglaze. There are spices, like epazote and fenugreek, sauces, like nuoc mam and rouille, and dishes from almost every cuisine imaginable: baba gannouj (Egyptian), gado gado (Indonesian), sancocho (Latin American), yakitori (Japanese), and zabaglione (Italian).
    Each entry has a definition and a pronunciation. Some entries are enhanced with recipes, and others have word history notes that tell surprising backstories. For instance, did you know that coriander and cilantro come from the same plant? Or that pho, the name of the quintessential Vietnamese soup, isn't a native Vietnamese word, but comes from French, feu, "fire," probably from the phrase pot au feu (borrowed into English for another kind of soup)?

    Hip and informative, 100 Word for Foodies is one delight you won't be able to resist. Bring it to your next dinner party. You'll see smiles all around.
