Seasonal Affective Disorder For Dummies
Laura L. Smith
Charles H. Elliott
Will Make You See the Light
No need for a long review here. This is a great book on seasonal affective disorder, also known as SAD. It's written in the typical "For Dummies" format: uses layman's terms, icons througout the book to alert you to key points, organized in an easy-to-follow manner (i.e. paragraphs/ideas broken up in the chapters for easier "digestion" of the info). Also typical of the "Dummies" books is the ...
Simply Organic: A Cookbook for Sustainable, Seasonal, and Local Ingredients
Jesse Ziff Cool
I love this cookbook! It has a lot of interesting combinations of ingredients that I would have not thought to combine. I was enticed to buy the book after eating in a couple of Jesse's restaurants, and have not been disappointed with any of the recipes I have tried. It is a beautiful book to look at and it's organization into seasonal recipes and its emphasis on local ingredients is lovely ...
Fresh Food Fast: Delicious, Seasonal Vegetarian Meals in Under an Hour
William Morrow Cookbooks
A new vegetarian's favorite cookbook
After reading the The China Study last summer, I decided to become 95% vegetarian and the hardest part was figuring out what "dinner" looked like for me and my formerly meat-eating family. This book (and his The Flexitarian Table) saved me. I have now cooked about 1/3 of the recipes in this book and I love them all -- my more finicky husband has about a 90% rate. I also love that the recipes ...
Seasonal Southwest Cooking: Contemporary Recipes & Menus for Every Occasion
Barbara Pool Fenzl
Every Recipe Has Been a Winner!!
I was introduced to Southwestern cooking by a friend and originally purchased this book as a gift for her. After helping to prepare a few of the recipes, I knew I had to have a copy for myself. I've tried a number of entrees, appetizers and desserts from this book and I'm yet to be disappointed. Some of my favorites include the Pecan and Chocolate Pie (great variation of an old favorite), ...

Winter Blues, Revised Edition: Everything You Need to Know to Beat Seasonal Affective Disorder
Norman E. Rosenthal MD
The Guilford Press
this book changed my life
This book was SO, SO helpful to me. I could tell the author understands what I have gone through (or as another reviewer said, it was very validating). As a result of reading this book, I bought a good light box (I had been using a very bright lamp, but it did not put out nearly the amount of lumens as the box I now have) and started taking Welbutrin during the fall and winter months. These two ...

Urban Pantry: Tips and Recipes for a Thrifty, Sustainable and Seasonal Kitchen
A great addition to my Cookbook Library
I have a huge bookshelf full of cookbooks. In fact, I will not allow myself to purchase cookbooks anymore, because I do not have any room to store them. That being said, 'Urban Pantry', which I just acquired, is so worth the small amount of space it takes up! Every single recipe is one that I will try, which is saying a lot--usually I take only 1 or 2 recipes away from a cookbook this size. ...

Hive Management: A Seasonal Guide for Beekeepers (Storey's Down-To-Earth Guides)
Richard E. Bonney
Storey Publishing, LLC
I bought three books at the same time, this one, his other one, "Beekeeping, a Practical Guide," and "Beekeeping for Dummies" They cover much of the same information but each has variations. All are readable and informative. I bought all three because beekeepers told me it was advisable to read several different books. I am glad I did. I ordered woodenware, but am too late to get bees this year. ...

Celebrate the Solstice: Honoring the Earth's Seasonal Rhythms through Festival and Ceremony

A couple of years ago, I put out a winter holiday greeting on the Web. Its purpose: to explore the ancient origins of the winter holiday season and its deep cross-cultural roots, and to help me give greater meaning to my own celebration at this time of the year. Little did I know when I began candlegrove.com that someone had already "written the book" on this subject. Richard Heinberg has ...

Gourmet's Weekends: Seasonal Menus and Recipes for Casual Gatherings
Gourmet Magazine Editors
Nice menus. Not the best source for American cooking.
`Gourmet's America' is one of two different types of recipe collection books put out by `Gourmet'. This is a special theme volume. The other variety is the yearly `best of' collection which features the cuisine of a major world city such as Paris, Rome, or San Francisco. The best feature of both types of volumes is their presentation of recipes as complete, themed meals which make the whole ...

Mark Bittman's Kitchen Express: 404 inspired seasonal dishes you can make in 20 minutes or less
Simon & Schuster
I LOVE this book
This is a GREAT cookbook. The recipes are written in paragraph form instead of the standard form and somehow this makes recipes way easier. Bittman has a knack for helping you LEARN to cook instead of just making a recipe, because he is always giving tips on things you can substitute or other things you can try. I find myself coming up with my own dishes based on his. This is a great way to add ...
