HEIDI SWANSON'S approach to cooking whole, natural foods has earned her a global readership. From her Northern California kitchen, she introduced us to a less-processed world of cooking and eating through her award-winning blog, 101 Cookbooks, and in her James Beard Award-nominated cookbook, Super Natural Cooking, she taught us how to expand our pantries and integrate nutrient-rich superfoods into our diets.

In Super Natural Every Day, Heidi helps us make nutritionally packed meals part of our daily repertoire by sharing a sumptuous collection of nearly 100 of her go-to recipes. These are the dishes that Heidi returns to again and again because they're approachable, good for the body, and just plain delicious.

The seductively flavorful vegetarian recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, treats, and drinks are quick to the table but tasty enough to linger over. Grab a Millet Muffin or some flaky Yogurt Biscuits for breakfast on the go, or settle into a lazy Sunday morning with a stack of Multi-grain Pancakes and a steaming cup of Ginger Tea. A bowl of Summer Squash Soup or a couple of Chanterelle Tacos make for a light and healthy lunch, and for dinner, there's Black Sesame Otsu, Pomegranate-Glazed Eggplant with Tempeh, or the aptly named Weeknight Curry. Heidi's Rose Geranium Prosecco is the perfect start to a celebratory meal, and the Buttermilk Cake with fresh plums or Sweet Panzanella will satisfy even the most stubborn sweet tooth.

Gorgeously illustrated with over 100 photos that showcase the engaging rhythms of Heidi's culinary life and travels, Super Natural Every Day reveals the beauty of uncomplicated food prepared well and reflects a realistic yet gourmet approach to a healthy and sophisticated natural foods lifestyle.
Modern Maple
Modern Maple
Paperback      ISBN: 0873518888

Maple syrup is a genuine product of the north, made only in the northeastern quarter of the United States and adjoining Canadian provinces. The Ojibwe and Dakota used it as a seasoning and also cooked it down to a crystallized state to preserve and transport it. Today, locally produced pure maple syrup is regarded as an artisan product, prized by cooks and bakers alike. Minnesota and Wisconsin are home to numerous syrup producers, from family-run operations that do everything from collection to boiling and bottling to large packagers that buy raw sap to process and sell.

Modern Maple celebrates this local treasure in ways both traditional and contemporary, with seventy-five recipes using maple to season, flavor, and sweeten dishes ranging from traditional breakfast favorites to appetizers, sandwiches, vegetables, main courses, breads, and desserts. Grilled Radicchio with Maple Drizzle and Goat Cheese, Pecan-Crusted Chicken with Maple Apples, Cardamom-Maple Swirl Bread, Roasted Carrot-Ginger Soup with Maple, and Maple Baklava are just a few of the delights that await. A special section on backyard syruping gives complete but easy instructions for making homemade syrup on a very small scale--a fun and interesting hobby that pays dividends in the kitchen.

The Northern Plate

Modern Maple is the second book in the Northern Plate series, following Rhubarb Renaissance. Each book in the series celebrates a specific food from the bounty of the Upper Midwest.

Food Rules: An Eater's Manual
Food Rules
An Eater's Manual
Paperback      ISBN: 014311638x
#1 New York Times Bestseller

A definitive compendium of food wisdom

Eating doesn't have to be so complicated. In this age of ever-more elaborate diets and conflicting health advice, Food Rules brings welcome simplicity to our daily decisions about food. Written with clarity, concision, and wit that has become bestselling author Michael Pollan's trademark, this indispensable handbook lays out a set of straightforward, memorable rules for eating wisely, one per page, accompanied by a concise explanation. It's an easy-to-use guide that draws from a variety of traditions, suggesting how different cultures through the ages have arrived at the same enduring wisdom about food. Whether at the supermarket or an all-you-can-eat buffet, this is the perfect guide for anyone who ever wondered, "What should I eat?"

In the more than four decades that I have been reading and writing about the findings of nutritional science, I have come across nothing more intelligent, sensible and simple to follow than the 64 principles outlined in a slender, easy-to-digest new book called Food Rules: An Eater's Manual, by Michael Pollan.--Jane Brody, The New York Times

The most sensible diet plan ever? We think it's the one that Michael Pollan outlined a few years ago: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." So we're happy that in his little new book, Food Rules, Pollan offers more common-sense rules for eating: 64 of them, in fact, all thought-provoking and some laugh-out-loud funny.--The Houston Chronicle

It doesn't get much easier than this. Each page has a simple rule, sometimes with a short explanation, sometimes without, that promotes Pollan's back-to-the-basics-of-food (and-food-enjoyment) philosophy.--The Los Angeles Times

A useful and funny purse-sized manual that could easily replace all the diet books on your bookshelf.--Tara Parker-Pope, The New York Times

Michael Pollan's most recent book on food, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation--the story of our most trusted food expert's culinary education--was published by Penguin Press in April 2013, and in 2016 it served as the inspiration for a four-part docuseries on Netflix by the same name.
All for the Union: The Civil War Diary & Letters of Elisha Hunt Rhodes
All for the Union
The Civil War Diary & Letters of Elisha Hunt Rhodes
Paperback      ISBN: 0679738282
All for the Union is the eloquent and moving diary of Elisha Hunt Rhodes, featured throughout Ken Burns' PBS documentary The Civil War. Rhodes enlisted into the Union Army as a private in 1861 and left it four years later as a twenty-three-year-old colonel after fighting hard and honorably in battles from Bull Run to Appomattox. Anyone who heard these diaries excerpted in The Civil War will recognize his accounts of those campaigns, which remain outstanding for their clarity and detail. Most of all, Rhodes's words reveal the motivation of a common Yankee foot soldier, an otherwise ordinary young man who endured the rigors of combat and exhausting marches, short rations, fear, and homesickness for a salary of $13 a month and the satisfaction of giving all for the union.

The Case Against Sugar
The Case Against Sugar
1st Edition    Hardcover      ISBN: 0307701646
From the best-selling author of Why We Get Fat, a groundbreaking, eye-opening expos that makes the convincing case that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick.

Among Americans, diabetes is more prevalent today than ever; obesity is at epidemic proportions; nearly 10% of children are thought to have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. And sugar is at the root of these, and other, critical society-wide, health-related problems. With his signature command of both science and straight talk, Gary Taubes delves into Americans' history with sugar: its uses as a preservative, as an additive in cigarettes, the contemporary overuse of high-fructose corn syrup. He explains what research has shown about our addiction to sweets. He clarifies the arguments against sugar, corrects misconceptions about the relationship between sugar and weight loss; and provides the perspective necessary to make informed decisions about sugar as individuals and as a society.
