Death, Taxes, and a Chocolate Cannoli by Diane Kelly
“He’s no Tony Soprano. Still, local crime boss Giustino “Tino” Fabrizio is one shady character that Tara would love to see behind bars. He operates a security businessâ€”or so he claims on his tax formsâ€”but his clients don’t feel so secure when it’s time to pay up. Problem is, no one can get close enough to nail this wiseguy for extortion. No one, that is, except Tara…
Going undercover, Tara lands a waitress job at Benedetta’s Bistroâ€”which is owned and operated by Tino’s wife. Being surrounded by cream-filled cannolis could be hazardous to Tara’s waistline…even though the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, right?”
Homegrown in the Ozarks: Mountain Meals and Memories by Rolland Love
“Growing up, Rolland Love roamed the Ozark Mountains, floated its rivers, and provided food for the family. “We grew vegetables, hunted game, and enjoyed the rivers’ bounty,” he says. “We were self-sufficient. And there was no need to travel, we already lived in paradise.”
Fried sweet corn and peppers
Grandma’s chicken ‘n’ dumplin’s
Jefferson Davis pie
Soft-shell turtle soup
Pawpaw and black walnut cookies
Homegrown in the Ozarks contains Ozarks nostalgia, as well as recipes for traditional home-cookin’ favorites, truly capturing the flavor of the region.”
Hometown Appetites: The Story of Clementine Paddleford, the Forgotten Food Writer Who Chronicled How America Ate by Kelly Alexander
“In Hometown Appetites, an award-winning food writer and a leading university archivist come together to revive the legacy of the most important food writer you have never heard of. Clementine Paddleford was a Kansas farm girl who grew up to chronicle America’s culinary habits. Her weekly readership at the New York Herald Tribune topped 12 million during the 1950s and 1960s and she earned a salary of $250,000. Yet twenty years after America’s best known food editor passed away, she had been forgotten until now”
