When her father passed away in 2006, Linda Cohen's busy life as a mother, wife, and entrepreneur came to a screeching halt. She took a spiritual sabbatical to work through her grief, and she came out of it resolved to embark upon a project: perform one thousand acts of kindness-mitzvahs-to honor her father's memory.1,000 Mitzvahs shares Cohen's two-and-a-half-year journey from sorrow to inspiration through simple daily acts of kindness. She presents each mitzvah as a short vignette, and the myriad forms they take-from helping the elderly to donating to good causes to baking and collecting food for others-highlight the many ways in which one person can touch the lives of others. As she pursues her quest, Cohen finds that her life is improved by these small acts-that every time she goes out of her way to do something good for someone else, she enhances her own well-being.More than a touching story of a daughter's love for her father, 1,000 Mitzvahs is a testament to the transformational power of kindness, and a call to arms for those who would like to follow in Cohen's footsteps with their own mitzvahs-no matter how large or how small.

The legacy work by one of the most influential experts on Spanish cuisine Penelope Casas was one of the premier experts on Spanish food: She taught Americans about jamón serrano, Manchego cheese, and chorizo, in addition to countless dishes, from patatas bravas to churros. She wrote several acclaimed books, and 1,000 Spanish Recipes is her final work and legacy. It is the latest--and a very special--addition to the award-winning 1,000 Recipes series; in this unmatched collection of simple, precise recipes, she takes readers on a culinary journey of Spain from Galicia to Madrid to the Canary Islands. There is a wealth of options for tapas (including 18 Spanish omelets); soups (11 recipes for gazpacho); salads; main courses; vegetable, bean, and grain dishes (50 paellas!); breads; and desserts (20 types of flan). Icons for vegetarian recipes, special menus, and features on Spanish ingredients and dishes will engage and reassure cooks. This culmination of Casas's 40-year career and lifelong love affair with Spanish food will be a treasured cookbook and guide.
