Ready When You Are: A Compendium of Comforting One-Dish Meals
Martha Rose Shulman
Great for my needs
I highly recommend this book if you a) like to cook and b) are suffering from the average working parent's harried and chopped up schedule. This is not a slowcooker cookbook or a "make it in minutes" cookbook. Many of these recipes take some time investment. However, the recipes clearly state when a portion of the prep can be done ahead (sometimes even a day) and most of the recipes "hold ...

Japanese Hot Pots: Comforting One-Pot Meals
Ten Speed Press
Busy mom of three loves this cook book!
I recently bought this cook book and my three kids and I have been having a lot of fun exploring the recipes! At first I was a little scared that we wouldn't have access to the Japanese ingredients needed for some of the recipes but quickly discovered that the authors suggest alternatives for each and every item that may be hard to find in your neck of the woods. (i.e. A small Japanese onion can ...

I love this cookbook. The well-thought-out recipes are easy to follow, are not overly reliant on soy, and always produce tasty results.

Blessed Are Those Who Mourn: Comforting Catholics in Their Time of Grief
Glenn M. Spencer
Our Sunday Visitor
I bought this book in a somewhat needy state of mind as my Mom had just died recently. I wanted something consoling, helpful, informative, and imbued with my Roman Catholic faith. This book didn't do it for me. I found it to be mostly psych talk with Scripture and references to certain Church teachings thrown in. My other question/concern about it is that I can't figure out the author - is he ...

Delicious, easy, and quickly devoured by my dad-in-law. Recipe title: not typical. Food: delicious. I echo the fact ...

Cry Until You Laugh: Comforting Guidance For Coping With Grief
Richard J. Obershaw
Beaver's Pond Press
A wonderful validation of various grief feelings!
I didn't discover this book until 4-5 months after my mother died earlier this year, but it was definitely a Godsend. It's the first grief book I've read that made perfect sense to me from the moment I began reading it and believe me I've read or skimmed through many grief books since my family began dying around me in 1991.
