Convincing Alex

by Nora Roberts

When she meets the sexy detective she decides to follow him around to get "ideas" for her show. Nick is absolutely perfect for her research…and maybe for herself as well&#8230 Originally published in 1994.

The Convivial Codfish

by Charlotte Macleod

At Christmastime in Boston, a thief targets the local scroogeThe angry old men of the Comrades of the Convivial Codfish club celebrate yuletide doing what they do best: eating, drinking, and greeting the season of giving with a spirited "bah, humbug!" Though well past sixty, Jem Kelling is a relative infant compared to some of the club's elder statesmen, and he has waited decades to host their annual Christmas scowl. And during his first evening as Exalted Chowderhead, he is thrilled to find the wine abundant, the chowder superb, and the humbugs as lusty as ever. But as the night winds down, Jem is horrified to find that the ceremonial Codfish necklace has vanished--right off of his neck! His nephew-in-law, art investigator Max Bittersohn, is convinced his new uncle was the victim of a practical joke. But when the old man takes a hip-snapping tumble, Max is forced to conclude that one of the scrooges is trying to perpetrate a deadly Christmas jeer.

A Cook in Time

by Joanne Pence

In this 7th delightful culinary mystery from Joanne Pence, dilettante chef Angie Amalfi gets entangled with a group of UFO-chasers and government conspiracy nuts, while trying to get her new business off the ground. Always thinking of new and better business ideas, culinary queen Angie Amalfi is sure she's got a winner with "Fantasy Dinners," one-of-a-kind thematic feasts specifically created to suit a client's unique tastes. Unfortunately no one's biting except the Prometheus Group, a crackpot cadre of UFO-chasers and conspiracy geeks. Still, even a wacko customer's better than none, and designing an otherworldly repast should keep Angie busy while her overworked policeman beau Paavo investigates a series of bizarre murders. But the more time she spends dealing with these alien abduction enthusiasts, the more Angie believes that maybe there is some kind of conspiracy afoot and that the Prometheans and Paavo's cases are somehow connected--which is inspiring just the kind of unhealthy curiosity that could end up launching Angie out of this world...for good!

by Suzanne Lenzer Mario Batali Anne Burrell

For Anne Burrell, a classically trained chef and host of Food Network's Secrets of a Restaurant Chef (where she shares impressive recipes and smart techniques that anyone can master), and Worst Cooks in America (the show that transforms hopeless home cooks), being a rock star in the kitchen means having the confidence and ability to get a great meal on the table without a sweat. In her debut cookbook, she presents 125 rustic yet elegant recipes, all based on accessible ingredients, along with encouraging notes and handy professional tricks that will help you cook more efficiently at home.With Anne's guidance, even the novice cook can turn out showstoppers like Whole Roasted Fish or Rack of Lamb Crusted with Black Olives, which are special enough for guests but easy enough for a weekday evening. For Piccolini (Little Nibbles), try making Truffled Deviled Eggs, Sausage and Pancetta Stuffed Mushrooms, or Baked Ricotta with Rosemary and Lemon. Delicious first courses include Pumpkin Soup with Allspice Whipped Cream and Garlic Steamed Mussels with Pimentón Aioli. And if you're craving pasta, Chef Anne's Light-as-a-Cloud Gnocchi, Sweet and Spicy Sausage Ragù, or Killer Mac and Cheese with Bacon will blow you away.Whether she's telling you how to use garlic most effectively ("perfume the oil, remove the garlic, and ditch it--it's fulfilled its garlic destiny!") or reaffirming the most important part of cooking (it should have the "sparkle factor!"), you will never feel alone at the stove. Anne's effervescent personality and unmatched vitality will be there every step of the way--as teacher, coach, cooking partner, and friend.Organized from "Piccolini and Firsts" to "Pasta, Seconds, Sides," and, of course, "Dessert" Cook Like a Rock Star is all about empowering you with the confidence to own what you do in your kitchen, to be excited by what you're making, and to experience the same kind of joy that Anne feels everyday when she cooks and eats.From the Hardcover edition.

The Cook Up

by D. Watkins

Reminiscent of the classic Random Family and The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace, but told by the man who lived it, THE COOK UP is a riveting look inside the Baltimore drug trade portrayed in The Wire and an incredible story of redemption. The smartest kid on his block in East Baltimore, D. was certain he would escape the life of drugs, decadence, and violence that had surrounded him since birth. But when his brother Devin is shot-only days after D. receives notice that he's been accepted into Georgetown University-the plans for his life are exploded, and he takes up the mantel of his brother's crack empire. D. succeeds in cultivating the family business, but when he meets a woman unlike any he's known before, his priorities are once more put into question. Equally terrifying and hilarious, inspiring and heartbreaking, D.'s story offers a rare glimpse into the mentality of a person who has escaped many hells.

Cooked

by Michael Pollan

A uniquely enjoyable quest to understand the transformative magic of cooking - from Michael Pollan, bestselling author of In Defence of FoodIn a culture of celebrity chefs and food reality shows, in countries which are crammed with fresh ingredients flown in from every corner of the Earth, we nonetheless year-on-year wade ever deeper into a great swamp of processed foods. The more we watch food on television, the less food we actually prepare and cook. Michael Pollan's marvellous new book is a clarion-call for the virtues and values of proper cooking - an essential, defining human activity which sits at the heart of our cultures, shapes family life and is in itself hugely enjoyable. Pollan recreates the transformative fundamentals of how we cook, building from the most basic principles: cooking with fire, cooking with water, cooking with air and cooking with earth. Cooked is an extremely funny and surprising plea to Pollan's readers to take control of their own fates and revel again in what should be a lifetime's engagement with the almost magical activity of making food. And it is, of course, about so much more - how cooking can transform both how we think about ourselves and about our families and friends. Praise for In Defence of Food:'With his lucid style and innovative research, Pollan deserves his reputation as one of the most respectable voices in the modern debate about food' Tristram Stuart, Financial Times'Brings home the real wonder of eating food' Sunday Times'A tough, witty, cogent rebuttal to the preposition that food can be reduced to its nutritional components without the loss of something essential . . . a lively, invaluable book' Janet Maslin, New York TimesAbout the author:Michael Pollan is the author of Second Nature, A Place of My Own, The Botany of Desire, The Omnivore's Dilemma, In Defence of Food and Food Rules.

Cooked Goose

by G. A. McKevett

Private detective Savannah Reid isn't your average crime-fighting heroine. Middle-aged and overweight--at least by society's skinny-winnie standards--Savannah has the audacity to love herself anyway. If there's anything the sassy Dixie belle enjoys more than cooking soul-satisfying food for her friends and family, it's nabbing bad guys and plopping them on the scales of Lady Justice. Having relocated to Southern California, this unconventional Georgia peach and the equally eccentric members of her Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency live to take a tasty bite out of crime in the sleepy, seaside town of San Carmelita.It's hard to conjure the jolly spirit of Christmas present when there's a serial rapist on the loose. And private detective Savannah Reid is determined that she and her Moonlight Magnolia agency members will nab the "Santa Rapist" before he hurts any more of her friends and neighbors. But sexual assault turns to murder, and the body count is mounting. Until they nab this creep, there won't be any holiday cheer in the quaint, Southern California, beach town of San Carmelita. No peace. And very little goodwill toward men.
