Tamales: Fast and Delicious Mexican Meals by Alice G Tapp
Tamales: Fast and Delicious Mexican Meals

njcur, December 5, 2014

Well, I'm not actually finished with this book. A cookbook like this I will use over and over. It is a great book for beginners as well more experienced cooks. It includes everything from making masa to rolling and tying the tamales as well as delicious fillings and sauces. I was surprised to see how much fat is in tamale masa. And glad to see that a polenta masa recipe was included that cut the fat dramatically. Recipes for traditional fillings as well as more unusual ones are in this wonderful book. Also for sweet tamales which are often overlooked. Quite a variety of yummy sauces as well. The beautiful as well as instructive illustration really inspire me to get cooking. Thank you to the publisher for providing me an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

The Joy of the Gospel: Evangelii Gaudium by Pope Francis
The Joy of the Gospel: Evangelii Gaudium

njcur, November 5, 2014

This beautiful hardcover edition is a great addition to any spiritual person's library. The pope's thoughts are laid out in nice bite size chunks. Just right for meditation. This would be a good choice for a worship sharing group to read together and discuss. Very challenging and uplifting.

Etta Mae's Worst Bad-Luck Day by Ann B Ross
Etta Mae's Worst Bad-Luck Day

njcur, October 25, 2014

A high energy frolic. Not the Southern accent that I had hoped for in the reader, but she was very engaging and I warmed to her at once. This story takes place in Miss Julia's town, but she has just a cameo appearance. Etta Mae is really from the other side of the tracks. Lots of laughs as the plots twist and turn and jump all over one another. I liked it a lot and hope that there will be more Etta Mae stories. I am grateful to have won this audiobook from LibraryThing.

Asian Pickles: Sweet, Sour, Salty, Cured, and Fermented Preserves from Korea, Japan, China, India, and Beyond by Karen Solomon
Asian Pickles: Sweet, Sour, Salty, Cured, and Fermented Preserves from Korea, Japan, China, India, and Beyond

This book is a feast for the eyes as well as the mouth. The photography really invites you to jump in and try the terrific recipes. Organized by region, I was easily able to find the Japanese pickles we fell in love with while traveling there. Each country has its own basic techniques described to help those who like to experiment on their own. The glossary, resources and index make it easy to access the information and to expand on what is offered. I think Karen Solomon has hit a home run with this one.
