If you want to be a little more systematic about your cooking, Mark Bittman’s “How to Cook Everything Fast: A Better Way to Cook Great Food,” is more than a collection of recipes. Reading this book will teach you how to use your time like professional chefs: in layers. Bittman says “it’s a collection of recipes in a style we’ve devised to teach you how to cook in the way people who really know how do all the time.” Your favorite family cook has this figured out by heating this while prepping that, having an efficient kitchen set up, and knowing when to use pre-packaged foods or fresh only for the best flavor. Bittman and his team have come up with the compendium to learn that (or fake it ‘til you make it!).

This story takes place in Europe during WWII and centers largely on the German occupation of France. The author, who uses alternating glipses into several peoples' lives weaves a story with his characters, which are well developed and believable. He does this and yet manages to maintain a certain amount of mystery and suspense. You'll find yourself being "drawn in" as the individuals of the story are drawn together. As an added bonus, you'll also come away with a better understanding of this time in history. I highly recommend this book.

Homegrown Tea: An Illustrated Guide to Planting, Harvesting, and Blending Teas and Tisanes by Cassie Liversidge
Homegrown Tea. Most of us in the far north of the United States will need a greenhouse to grow our own Camellia sinensis, otherwise known as the tea plant. All black, green and even white teas come from this little plant, related to the fragrant white camellia. However, we can make teas from so many more plants, including commonly known kitchen herbs and spices. If you're looking to take the step of cultivating a tea garden, this little book has plenty of instructions to make a start, including mint and lemongrass. Check it out on the library's new book shelf!
