by Deborah Harroun

We all know how important it is to give our kids a healthy, balanced diet. But how best to make sure they are getting all the vitamins and nutrients they need when fruits and vegetables are some of the least favorite items on their plate? Popular food writer, blogger and mother of three Deborah Harroun has the answer in 100 delightfully flavorful and nutritious recipes for kid-friendly smoothies. Her newest cookbook, BEST 100 SMOOTHIES FOR KIDS offers up kid-test and kid-approved recipes that are sure to please everyone in the family. The book includes recipes for fruit- and vegetable-based juices, as well as a variety that combine fruits and veggies or get their flavor and nutrients from things other than produce. The chapters include Breakfast Smoothies, Lunch and Lunchbox Smoothies, Snacktime Smoothies, Smoothies for Dinner, and Dessert Smoothies. Two special chapters cover Holiday Smoothies, such as pumpkin-flavored smoothies for Thanksgiving or Christmas, and Bedtime Smoothies, made with tryptophan-rich milk bases and with soothing ingredients like chamomile, cinnamon, vanilla, and lemon. What's better than a well-fed and happy child who falls asleep easily after a busy day? Harroun also provides a variety of different options for creating the perfect smoothie, with recipes that include milk- and yogurt-based smoothies as well as dairy-free options made from juice, water, rice milk, almond milk, and soy milk. There are even numerous gluten-free and vegan options as well. Harroun serves up a hundred bright and colorful, healthy and satisfying drinks in this new four-color and photo-rich cookbook. The emphasis throughout is on providing a wide range of flavors, colors, and nutrients, guaranteed to broaden the horizons of any child who thinks carrots or apples are the only acceptable items from the supermarket's produce section. Parents--and doctors and dentists--can take heart in the fact that Harroun uses no processed or white sugar for sweetening her smoothies. With all these options for creating inspired smoothies, parents no longer have to worry about making sure their children are getting all the nutrition they need. The only challenge is figuring out which of these delicious recipes to try first!

The Best Advice I Ever Got

by Katie Couric

What was the tipping point for Malcolm Gladwell? What unscripted event made Meryl Streep who she is? How did Mario Batali cook up his recipe for success? In this inspiration-packed book, Katie Couric reports from the front lines of the worlds of politics, entertainment, sports, philanthropy, the arts, and business--distilling the ingenious, hard-won insights of leaders and visionaries, who tell us all how to take chances, follow our passions, cope with criticism, and, perhaps most important, commit to something greater than ourselves.Among the many voices to be heard here are financial guru Suze Orman on the benefits of doing what's right, not what's easy; director Steven Spielberg on listening rather than being listened to; quarterback Drew Brees on how his (literal) big break changed his life; and novelist Curtis Sittenfeld on the secrets of a great long-term relationship (she suggests marrying someone less neurotic than you); not to mention:* Michael Bloomberg: "Eighty percent of success is showing up . . . early."* Eric Stonestreet: "Remember that the old lady who's taking forever in line is someone's grandma."* Joyce Carol Oates: "Read widely--what you want to read, and not what someone suggests that you should read."* Jimmy Kimmel: "When in doubt, order the hamburger.'"* Apolo Ohno: "It's not about the forty seconds; it's about the four years, the time it took to get there."* Madeleine K. Albright: "Never play hide-and-seek with the truth."Along the way, Couric reflects on the good advice--and the missteps--that have guided her from her early days as a desk assistant at ABC to her groundbreaking role as the first female anchor of the CBS Evening News. She reveals how the words of Thomas Jefferson helped her deal with her husband's tragic death from cancer, and what encouraged her to leave the security of NBC's Today show for a new adventure at CBS.Delightful, empowering, and moving, The Best Advice I Ever Got is the perfect book for anyone who is thinking about the future, contemplating taking a risk, or daring to make a leap into the great unknown. This book is for all of us, young or old, who want to see how today's best and brightest got it right, got it wrong, and came out on top.

Best African American Essays 2009

by Debra J. Dickerson

This exciting collection introduces the first-ever annual anthology of essay writing by African Americans. Here are remarkable essays on a variety of subjects informed by -- but not necessarily about -- the experience of blackness, as seen through the eyes of some of our finest writers. From art, entertainment, and science to technology, sexuality, and current events -- including the battle for the Democratic nomination for the presidency -- the essays in this inaugural anthology offer the compelling perspectives of a number of well-known, distinguished writers, among them Malcolm Gladwell, Jamaica Kincaid, James McBride, and Walter Mosley, and a number of other writers who are just beginning to be heard. Selected from a diverse array of respected publications, the essays gathered here are about making history, living everyday life -- and everything in between. In "Fired", author and professor Emily Bernard wrestles with the pain of a friendship inexplicably ended. Kenneth McClane writes hauntingly of the last days of his parents' lives in "Driving". Journalist Brian Palmer shares "The Last Thoughts of an Iraq War Embed". Jamaica Kincaid describes her oddly charged relationship with that quintessentially British, Wordsworthian flower in "Dances with Daffodils", and writer Hawa Allan depicts the forces of race and rivalry as two catwalk icons face off in "When Tyra Met Naomi". A venue in which African American writers can branch out from traditionally "black" subjects, "Best African American Essays' features a range of gifted voices exploring the many issues and experiences, joys and trials, that, as human beings, we all share.

The Best American Crime Writing 2003

by Otto Penzler Thomas H. Cook

A riveting new anthology series--a year's worth of the most powerful, the most startling, the smartest and most astute, in short, the best crime journalism. Scouring hundreds of publications, guest editor Nicholas Pileggi, and series editors Otto Penzler and Thomas H. Cook have created a remarkable compilation of the best examples of the most current and vibrant of our literary traditions: crime reporting. Ranging in style from Mark Singer's ribald "The Chicken Warriors," an up-close look at the tawdry, wildly popular, illegal world of cock-fighting, to David McClintick's harrowing "Fatal Bondage," the tale of a grifter with an attraction to sado-masochistic sex and serial killing, this collection showcases the wide variety of writing in the field today. Criminal behavior itself also falls into a spectrum, from the isolated and idiosyncratic misdeed, such as that documented in Skip Hollandsworth's "The Killing of Alydar," an investigation into the greed that spawned the killing of a thoroughbred horse, to the large-scale malignancies that can shake an entire nation, as recounted in "The Day of the Attack," Nancy Gibbs's sobering retelling of the events of September 11, 2001. Good crime writing is never just about the crime or the criminals, so this collection also has moving and often troubling portraits of the victims, their families, and the communities in which they lived, and, in pieces such as D. Graham Burnett's "Anatomy of a Verdict," a reminder of the immensely difficult process that is coming to judgment. Entertaining, at times alarming,Best American Crime Writingis compelling evidence of the furthest reaches of human behavior.
