    MAKE A MIX *sold out*

    By Karine Eliason, Nevada Harward & Madeline Westover. We see commercial mixes all the time in the grocery stores and have a few tucked in our pantry. They are advertised as time-savers, but with the rising labor and packaging costs they are not money-savers. By making your own mixes ahead of time you can have just the amount you need, and can also make many recipes from just a few basic master mixes. Includes mixes for breads, main dishes, appetizers, side dishes, desserts and beverages. By putting a little time aside you can always have something on hand and serve your family wonderful meals without a hefty price tag. With the three types of master mixes; dry, semi-dry and freezer-refrigerator mixes you can offer a different menu every day of the year with a minimum of preparation time. Softcover 332pp Learn More

  3. Mamas Home Remedies

    MAMAS HOME REMEDIES

    by Svetlana Konnikova MA, AN. Many traditional medicines were based on plant use, the knowledge of which was passed down through the generations. Much of that has been lost, which is why books like this are so valuable. Svetlana Konnikova began documenting the herbal wisdom of her Russian heritage when she was 12. She came from a long line of old healers and her mother was a doctor with an interest in natural healing. Her book is wonderful for those interested in a natural approach to health. There are numerous safe and easy-to-make remedies for the following conditions: common colds (89 recipes), allergies (61), children's allergies (40), headaches (70), sleep (63), fatigue (19), stress (10), and asthma (51). Remedies use over 100 medicinal herbs, vegetables and other plants and are in the form of teas, 'nastoykas' (infusions), tinctures, juices, compresses, and just plain good advice. In addition, Konnikova spices up the text with personal antidotes and Russian folktales. Softcover 312pp. Learn More

    OTHERWISE NORMAL PEOPLE

    By Aurelia C. Scott. When Aurelia Scott met 75 year old Clarence Rhodes here in Portland Maine, she got her first taste of the obsessive world of rose gardeners. Rhodes is well known locally for riotous roses that abound on his small lot and out onto his sidewalk. He does not let cold winters, lack of space, or lack of money for equipment get in his way. His ingenuity and enthusiasm prompted Scott to interview a wide cross section of Americas "rose-a-holics" and her book provices us with lively accounts of these visits. Scott and her new found rose friends all come together at the ARS Spring Rose Show and we get an inside look at the action there. Finally, overcome with the world of hybrid roses, Scott visits heritage rose lovers, whom she believe will be less obsessive. Not so! Hardcover 235pp. Learn More
