Included here are Le Pichet's Salade Verte, Etta's Mini Dungeness Crab Cakes by Tom Douglas, and the Pink Door's Linguine alla Vongole. The author has also created recipes that are inspired by ingredients found at the market, such as Spanish Chickpea and Chorizo Stew (with Uli's Sausage) and a MarketSpice Tea Cake.

What's the thing you hate most about the one you love? Mary doesn't know whether it's the way he doesn't quite reach the laundry basket when he throws his dirty clothes at it (but doesn't ever walk over and pick them up and put them in), or the balled-up tissues he leaves on the bedside table when he has a cold, or the way he never quite empties the dishwasher, leaving the "difficult" items for her to put away. Is it that because she is "only working part-time" that she is responsible for all of the domestic tasks in the house? Or, is it simply that he puts used teabags in the sink? The mother of two young boys, Mary knows how to get them to behave the way she wants. Now she's designing the spousal equivalent of a star chart and every little thing her husband does wrong will go on it. Though Mary knows you're supposed to reward the good behavior rather than punish the bad, the rules for those in middle age are different than the rules for those not even in middle school...In THE PILE OF STUFF AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STAIRS, Hopkinson pens a hilarious and acutely-observed novel about marriage, motherhood, children, and work. Readers everywhere will find Mary's trials hilariously familiar as they cheer her on in her efforts to balance home, work, children, and a clean bottom stair!
Imagine spending the day hanging from a tree, pounding your lips into the hard, rough bark. That's the life of a pileated woodpecker, whose specialized toes, tail, beak, and tongue make it well suited for life on the side of a tree. Once near extinction, the pileated woodpecker has learned to live closer to humans and is increasing in number. With its loud cackling, large size, and bright coloring, the pileated woodpecker stands out among North American woodland creatures. REMARKABLE ANIMALS books spotlight a variety of unusual animals. Each book focuses on one animal, describing its appearance, habitat, life cycle, and relationship with humans. Through vivid color photographs and an absorbing text, young readers will discover the behavior and features that make some animals truly remarkable.
As suggested by the subtitle, "Legends, Beliefs, Songs, Games, Jokes, Festivals, Slang Ghost Stories and Other Traditions from American Colleges and Universities," Bronner examines every aspect of modern college life. That includes study techniques like mnemonics to help remember complex facts, traditions like waiting times for professors arriving late to class, legendary professors, photocopier art, mooning, streaking, celebrations, pranks, drinking games and songs, fight songs, ghost stories, and competitive college humor (including many Texas Aggie jokes). A section on sororities and fraternities covers rush, pledging, hell week, initiation, and numerous traditions. Even dating, engagement, and slang terms get some coverage. This book will be of greatest interest to those who study folklore and traditions, to new students seeking to learn what to expect in college, and perhaps to those who want to adapt old traditions to their school or its organizations.

The Pilgrim Art explores the remarkable cultural influence of Chinese porcelain around the globe. Cobalt ore was shipped from Persia to China in the fourteenth century, where it was used to decorate porcelain for Muslims in Southeast Asia, India, Persia, and Iraq.
This powerful short novel describes the events of a single afternoon. Alwyn Tower, an American expatriate and sometime novelist, is staying with a friend outside of Paris, when a well-heeled, itinerant Irish couple drops in--with Lucy, their trained hawk, a restless, sullen, disturbingly totemic presence. Lunch is prepared, drink ﬂows. A masquerade, at once harrowing and farcical, begins. A work of classical elegance and concision, The Pilgrim Hawk stands with Faulkner's The Bear as one of the ﬁnest American short novels: a beautifully crafted story that is also a poignant evocation of the implacable power of love.
From the back cover: In the year of our Lord 1141, civil war over England's throne leaves a legacy of violence-and the murder of a knight dear to Brother Cadfael. And with gentle bud-strewn May, a flood of pilgrims comes to the celebration of Saint Winifred at the Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, carrying with it many strange souls...and perhaps the knight's killer. Brother Cadfael's shrewd eyes see all: the prosperous merchant who rings false, an angelic lame boy, his beautiful dowerless sister, and two wealthy penitents. In the name of justice Cadfael decides to uncover the strange and twisted tale that accompanies these travelers. Instead he unearths a quest for vengeance, witnesses a miracle, and finds himself on a razor's edge between death or the absolution of love.
Written as science fiction in 1964, this is the story of a secret project to send one man to the moon instead of three. The race to the moon with the Russians is tight and sending one man might help the americans gain the advantage. A colonel is ready to go, but there's another reluctant candidate, astronaut civilian steve Lawrence. Which will be chosen, and will the project be approved or quashed? How does the situation effect the friends and families of the astronauts? How will the president weigh political and moral questions when deciding whether to allow this dangerous mission to proceed? THE PILGRIM PROJECT explres all these issues in a suspenseful and heart-touching narrative which might now be viewed as alternate history. The book was the basis of Robert Altman's film "Countdown."
Each year thousands of men and women from more than sixty countries journey by foot and bicycle across northern Spain, following the medieval pilgrimage road known as the Camino de Santiago. Their destination is Santiago de Compostela, where the remains of the apostle James are said to be buried. These modern-day pilgrims and the role of the pilgrimage in their lives are the subject of Nancy Louise Frey's fascinating book. Unlike the religiously-oriented pilgrims who visit Marian shrines such as Lourdes, the modern Road of St. James attracts an ecumenical mix of largely well-educated, urban middle-class participants. Eschewing comfortable methods of travel, they choose physically demanding journeys, some as long as four months, in order to experience nature, enjoy cultural and historical patrimony, renew faith, or cope with personal trauma. Frey's anthropological study focuses on the remarkable reanimation of the Road that has gained momentum since the 1980s. Her intensive fieldwork (including making the pilgrimage several times herself) provides a colorful portrayal of the pilgrimage while revealing a spectrum of hopes, discontents, and desires among its participants, many of whom feel estranged from society. The Camino's physical and mental journey offers them closer community, greater personal knowledge, and links to the past and to nature. But what happens when pilgrims return home? Exploring this crucial question Frey finds that pilgrims often reflect deeply on their lives and some make significant changes: an artistic voice is discovered, a marriage is ended, meaningful work is found. Other pilgrims repeat the pilgrimage or join a pilgrims' association to keep their connection to the Camino alive. And some only remain pilgrims while on the road. In all, Pilgrim Stories is an exceptional prism through which to understand the desires and dissatisfactions of contemporary Western life at the end of the millennium. "Feet are touched, discussed, massaged, [and] become signs of a journey well traveled: 'I did it all on foot!' . . . Pilgrims give feet a power and importance not recognized in daily life, as a causeway and direct channel to the road, the past, meaningful relations, nature, and the self."
This book is one of the best creations of science fiction by Zenna Henderson narrating the story of The People, who were coming from another planet when their spaceship crashed, leaving those who survived on earth. . .
Here Paulo Coelho details his journey across Spain along the legendaryroad of San Tiago, which pilgrims have travelled since Middle Ages. On this contemporary quest, he encounters a Chaucerian variety of mysterious guides and devilish opponents and learns to understand the nature of truth through the simplicity of life. The Pilgrimage holds an important place in Paulo Coelho's literary canon. His first book, it not only paved the way for his phenomenal novel The Alchemist , but it also fully expresses his humanist philosophy and the depth of his unique search for meaning.
"This is a book about the things that save a man's life, beginning with a motorcycle. At the age of fifty-seven, looking over his shoulder at heart disease, increasingly surrounded by his career as a writer, Gary Paulsen acquires his first Harley-Davidson. He decides to ride long - from his home in New Mexico to Alaska - and it turns out to be a trip in time as well as space." "Through Minnesota and the Rockies to the Alaska Highway, Paulsen, the author of Winterdance, about running the Iditarod, travels through the landmarks of his life. There were the people who wouldn't let him give in, from the tough cop who kept him from becoming a juvenile delinquent to the whore who told him not to leave the army. There were the challenges that pushed him to the limit, such as high-stakes poker, wrangling a dogsled through the Alaskan wilderness, and packing horses into the foothills of Montana. And there were the days of pure sweat and muscle on farms in Minnesota or at the bottom of septic-tank pits in Colorado. Amid the silence and beauty of running the road on his Harley, Paulsen celebrates hard work, constant challenge, and ultimately the process rather than the product - not the destination but the ride."--BOOK JACKET.

Libby Kelting had always felt herself born out of time. No wonder the historical romance-reading, Jane Austen-adaptation-watching, all-around history nerd jumped at the chance to intern at Camden Harbor, Maine's Oldest Living History Museum. But at Camden Harbor Libby's just plain out of place, no matter how cute she looks in a corset. Her cat-loving coworker wants her dead, the too-smart-for-his-own-good local reporter keeps pushing her buttons, her gorgeous sailor may be more shipwreck than dreamboat -- plus Camden Harbor's haunted. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, Libby learns that boys, like ghosts, aren't always what they seem.
"Pilgrims in Their Own Land" is in one sense a study of migration, with each wave of immigrants bringing a set of religious beliefs to a new world. The narrative unfolds through sharply detailed biographical vignettes-stories of religious "pathfinders", including William Penn, Mary Baker Eddy, Henry David Thoreau, and many other leaders of movements, both marginal and mainstream. In addition, Marty considers the impact of religion on social issues such as racism, feminism, and utopianism. And engrossing, highly readable, and comprehensive history, "Pilgrims in Their Own Land" is written with respect, appreciation, and insight into the multitude of religious groups that represent expressions of spirituality in America.
