NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Three signs you need this book: 1) Chicken fingers qualify as adventurous. (Hey, they’re not nuggets.) 2) You live in fear of the white stuff touching the green stuff. 3) Family dinner? What’s family dinner? When Jenny Rosenstrach’s kids were little, her dinner rotation looked like this: Pasta, Pizza, Pasta, Burgers, Pasta. It made her crazy—not only because of the mind-numbing repetition, but because she loved to cook and missed her prekid, ketchup-free dinners. Her solution? A family adventure: She and her husband, Andy, would cook thirty new dishes in a single month—and her kids would try them all. Was it nuts for two working parents to take on this challenge? Yes. But did it transform family dinner from stressful grind to happy ritual? Completely. Here, Rosenstrach—creator of the beloved blog and book Dinner: A Love Story—shares her story, offering weekly meal plans, tons of organizing tips, and eighty-plus super-simple, kid-vetted recipes.

I will be giving this important book to everyone I know.’ Jasmine Hemsley, author of The Art of Eating Well ‘Will makes meditation cool.

For everyone looking to find a little extra magic in a life with little to celebrate, Happy Cruelty Day! is here. Beginning on January 1, this book features 365 new holidays, each accompanied by a strange, dark and humorous short story explaining the day you woke up in and how to celebrate it. These 365 daily doses of delight, perversion, and nonsense include "Hire Someone Attractive To Pretend To Love You Day," "Hang on to Your Wide-Eyed Innocence Day," "Sit in Abject Terror Day," and, of course, "Cruelty Day." Far more than just a humor book, Happy Cruelty Day! is like a daily instructional manual written by a psychopath. On one page, the book has you joining a community crime watch group in an effort to make friends (it won't work). Flip the page, and you'll find the details of your attempt to rescue your husband from a POW camp (you'll fail). Flip it again, and Happy Cruelty Day! will have important insight into how best to befriend a runaway teen (offer her some soup). These holidays celebrate everything from that pivotal point in your life when everything changes, to the day you're not going to do anything but sit on the edge of your bed and get very drunk. When people realize they've fallen in love, or when they realize their love was just a lie. And of course, when love of whatever incarnation brings an index finger to clench tight around the trigger of a gun. Raw, ridiculous, and laugh-out-loud funny, this is a sharp-edged satire on the subtleties, shallowness, and stupidity of daily life.
Presents a primer on how to establish dinner as the family meal and a time for reconnection, collecting recipes for such offerings as shrimp rolls, hoisin turkey burgers, zucchini fritters, and stromboli.
Millennium Architecture: the Sacred versus the Secular The Year 2000 celebrations have forced Britain and most of the world to ask the fundamental question: who are we? The answers, debated in this issue, are both scandalous and interesting. Millennium Architecture holds the mirror up to society in light of the money pumped into the Millennium projects through the National Lottery. It shows culture to be, in spite of lip service to Christ's birth, largely secular and, in Blair's formula, too often created in focus-group enclaves. The scandal of public money supporting the Greenwich Dome and the evasion of the religious content are revealed, amid the transformations that are bringing about a Post-Christian world. In this issue of AD, virtually the only serious debate on the Millennium, the major players speak frankly. A commentary on the few outstanding projects from Britain, Australia, Germany, France and Italy is provided. The opening section on the Millennium Dome reveals the crisis of content posed when over ï¿1⁄2800 million is spent on celebration, symbolism and entertainment. Charles Jencks, Clifford Longley and David Papineau, writers and philosophers, debate the choice of themes, the Big Idea, and their presentation. Peter Murray gives the precedents - such as the 1851 Exhibition - while Simon Jenkins, a Millennium Commissioner tells how the Dome was conceived amid political indecision. Stephen Bayley, famously exiting from this affair, gives his account of focus-group culture. Claire Sampson and Martin Newman, from the Dome's production department, make the counter-case in favour of consensual design. Nigel Coates, Zaha Hadid and Eva Jiricna explain the most inventive architectural creations, the Body, Mind and Faith Zones. * Nigel Coates * Zaha Hadid * Eva Jiricna * Futures Systems * Alsop & Stormer * Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners * Michael Hopkins & Partners * Richard Meier * Rafael Moneo * Renzo Piano AD Plus * Frederic Borel * Lot/EK * David Chipperfi
You don’t need to be a vegetarian to eat like one! With over 100 recipes, the New York Times bestselling author of Dinner: A Love Story and her family adopt a “weekday vegetarian” mentality. Jenny Rosenstrach, creator of the beloved blog Dinner: A Love Story and Cup of Jo columnist, knew that she wanted to eat better for health reasons and for the planet but didn’t want to miss the meat that she loves. But why does it have to be all or nothing? She figured that she could eat vegetarian during the week and save meaty splurges for the weekend. The Weekday Vegetarians shows readers how Jenny got her family on board with a weekday plant-based mentality and lays out a plan for home cooks to follow, one filled with brilliant and bold meat-free meals. Curious cooks will find more than 100 recipes (organized by meal type) for comforting, family-friendly foods like Pizza Salad with White Beans, Cauliflower Cutlets with Ranch Dressing, and Squash and Black Bean Tacos. Jenny also offers key flavor hits that will make any tray of roasted vegetables or bowl of garlicky beans irresistible—great things to make and throw on your next meal, such as spiced Crispy Chickpeas (who needs croutons?), Pizza Dough Croutons (you need croutons!), and a sweet chile sauce that makes everything look good and taste amazing. The Weekday Vegetarians is loaded with practical tips, techniques, and food for thought, and Jenny is your sage guide to getting more meat-free meals into your weekly rotation. Who knows? Maybe like Jenny’s family, the more you practice being weekday vegetarians, the more you’ll crave this food on the weekends, too!
"In the first years of this century, three young people - Anne-Marie, David and Mohammad - try to find their place in a changed world of identity politics, religion, conflict and betrayal. Set against the background first of UK student life and then Palestine, Israel and the Balkans, this novel draws on the poetry of the Song of Songs and the Persian poet Rumi, and asks searching questions about the nature of betrayal, loyalty and identity, both in our personal lives and in today's troubled world."--BOOK JACKET.
