Tricia's Kitchen 
TRISHA'S KITCHEN: EASY COMFORT FOOD FOR FRIENDS & FAMILY

Foreward by Garth Brooks
“. . . every recipe DOES tell a story . . .” Trisha Yearwood writes in the introduction to TRISHA’S KITCHEN. Her new cookbook draws inspiration from family and friends and offers an abundance of delicious recipes, many of them perfect for this season. If you need some dishes to add to your family favorites, you’ll find them here, accompanied by mouthwatering photographs.

For breakfast try the Hash Brown-Crusted Asparagus Sausage Quiche (yes, the crust is made with the potatoes.) Frozen puff pastry, bacon, and maple syrup are the base for decadent Pecan Sticky Buns.

Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup and Hard Cider Cheese Soup will warm you up at lunch, while the gorgeous Giant Meat Balls in Marinara will satisfy your hunger at dinner.

And for dessert there is the spectacular Banana Split Nachos platter and the incredible Potato Chip Bacon Brownies, which Trisha notes, “. . .are one of my most requested desserts to take to a party or covered dish supper.”

You’ll cook from this treasury year round, and friends will ask YOU to bring those brownies!

Joan Nathan's Jewish Holiday Cookbook
JOAN NATHAN'S JEWISH HOLIDAY COOKBOOK

Jewish holidays are defined by food. Yet Jewish cooking is always changing, encompassing the flavors of the world, embracing local culinary traditions of every place in which Jews have lived and adapting them to Jewish observance. This collection, the culmination of Joan Nathan's decades of gathering Jewish recipes from around the world, is a tour through the Jewish holidays as told in food.

For each holiday, Nathan presents menus from different cuisines--Moroccan, Russian, German, and contemporary American are just a few--that show how the traditions of Jewish food have taken on new forms around the world. There are dishes that you will remember from your mother's table and dishes that go back to the Second Temple, family recipes that you thought were lost and other families' recipes that you have yet to discover. Explaining their origins and the holidays that have shaped them, Nathan spices these delicious recipes with delightful stories about the people who have kept these traditions alive.

Try something exotic--Algerian Chicken Tagine with Quinces or Seven-Fruit Haroset from Surinam--or rediscover an American favorite like Pineapple Noodle Kugel or Charlestonian Broth with "Soup Bunch" and Matzah Balls. No matter what you select, this essential book, which combines and updates Nathan's classic cookbooks The Jewish Holiday Baker and The Jewish Holiday Kitchen with a new generation of recipes, will bring the rich variety and heritage of Jewish cooking to your table on the holidays and throughout the year.
