You Put What In My Dessert?: From Alaska, the Best Sauerkraut and Cabbage Recipes in the World

by Alicia Loveland

Cabbage has been heralded as a cancer inhibitor in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, is loaded with vitamin C, only has 11 calories per serving, and may be added to enhance almost any recipe. It can be fried, boiled, baked, frozen, canned, or dried, and then ground in a food mill and used to thicken soup. Making it into sauerkraut is an added bonus because it is ready to us--as you will find in You Put What In My Dessert?. Sauerkraut got its start more than 2,000 years ago when the laborers building the Great Wall of China pickled cabbage in wine to supplement their diet. Genghis Khan came along and liked it so much he took it back to fortify his Tartars as they plundered their way through Europe. The Germans enjoyed the pickled cabbage and named it sauerkraut, meaning sour cabbage. Captain Cook knew of its importance when he carried sauerkraut on his ships to ward off scurvy. Sauerkraut is a mainstay in the Loveland household. Alicia keeps it rinsed, drained, chopped (in a food chopper or snipped with scissors), and sauerkraut in the refrigerator. Alicia says, It's as important to me as sourdough starter is to an Alaskan homesteader."After judging a World Federation of Competitive Eaters cabbage eating contest in Palmer a few years ago, Alicia decided You Put What In My Dessert? needed to be written. She felt sorry for contestants eating plates of plain, boiled cabbage. "I wish I could have spiced it up for them with a little caraway seed, dill, mint, mustard seed, savory, or tarragon." And topped off with a piece of cabbage Hooch Cake. "

You Say More Than You Think: Use the New Body Language to Get What You Want!, The 7-Day Plan

by Mariska Van Aalst Janine Driver

Now You're Talking!Do you want to be bulletproof at work, secure in your relationship, and content in your own skin? If so, it's more important than ever to be aware of what your body is saying to the outside world. Unfortunately, most of what you've heard from other body language experts is wrong, and, as a result, your actions may be hurting, not helping, you. With sass and a keen eye, media favorite Janine Driver teaches you the skills she used every day to stay alive during her fifteen years as a body-language expert at the ATF. Janine's 7-day plan and her 7-second solutions teach you dozens of body language fixes to turn any interpersonal situation to your advantage. She reveals methods here that other experts refuse to share with the public, and she debunks major myths other experts swear are fact: Giving more eye contact is key when you're trying to impress someone. Not necessarily true. It's actually more important where you point your belly button. This small body shift communicates true interest more powerfully than constant eye contact.The "steeple" hand gesture will give you the upper hand during negotiations and business meetings. Wrong. Driver has seen this overbearing gesture backfire more often than not. Instead, she suggests two new steeples that give you power without making you seem overly aggressive: the Basketball Steeple and the A-OK Two-Fingered Steeple. Happy people command power and attention by smiling just before they meet new people. Studies have shown that people who do this are viewed as Beta Leaders. Alpha leaders smile once they shake your hand and hear your name. At a time when every advantage counts--and first impressions matter more than ever--this is the book to help you really get your message across.From the Hardcover edition.

Along the way, Thomas explores the complex relationships between research and practice, between words and meanings, between human error and human accomplishment, More than a magnificent autobiography, The Youngest Science is also a celebration and a warning--about the nature of medicine and about the future life of our planet.
