Cookbook and Culinary Tour of the City Beautiful

By Paola Mendez

Coral Gables Restaurants Ultimate Guide

A Taste of Coral Gables: The Cookbook and Culinary Tour of the City Beautiful is brimming with all the great food and good vibes that make this sunny city in South Florida such a magnet for food lovers of all stripes. Filled with recipes, restaurant descriptions, menu highlights, chef profiles, wine pairings, and more, this one-stop resource on the Coral Gables food scene doubles as a restaurant guide and recipe resource to the best places the city has to offer.

The inside scoop for food lovers: There are approximately 75 restaurants covered in the book, each with a two-page spread that contains color photographs, informative text on the origins and highlights of the restaurant, what makes it unique, and who the people are behind the restaurant’s unique atmosphere and cuisine. Each also features a recipe for one of the restaurant’s signature dishes for easy preparation at home.

Best restaurants: From such venerable dining establishments as the Palm d’Or at the Biltmore (haute cuisine in Old-World charm with New World sensibilities) to fun and funky specialty joints such as Ms. Cheezious (grilled cheese in every manner imaginable), to ethnic standouts such as Talavera (down-home Mexican), all bases are covered in this comprehensive culinary treasure trove paying homage to the “City Beautiful.”

Drink Like a Geek

By

Drink Like a Geek marries Jeff’s twin passions for alcohol and geek culture: in the early 2000s, Jeff directed two documentaries about Star Wars Episode I (the first in the build-up to its release, and the second after fans realized it sucked). There will be cocktail recipes throughout Drink Like a Geek — interpretations of Miruvor of Middle Earth, Dornish Red and Arbor Gold of Westeros, etc. — but the emphasis will be more on getting to know various subcultures than in genre recipe books like The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy. That emphasis should be clear in the intro chapter included at the end of the proposal, which is about an experience Jeff had crossing enemy lines and drinking Romulan Ale at Dragon*Con in Atlanta

A Bright Clean Mind

By

Tenderheart will be a breezy yet substantial read that lends itself to “dipping back in,” a paperback original with a 5.5” x 8.5” trim size for portability (and gift-ability!) The readership is much the same as well: creative people who want to evolve out of the anxiety and frustration that have characterized so much of their artistic process up to now. Tenderheart will be primarily for “veg-curious” creatives—artists and entrepreneurs who have heard a plant-based diet is better for their health, but haven’t yet made the connections between diet, empathy for non-human animals, and creative output—though it will also appeal to readers who are already moving toward a more compassionate lifestyle, as well as vegans seeking creative inspiration. Now that the older members of Generation Z (no doubt the most politically-engaged generation since the 1960s) are purchasing their own food, plant protein and non-dairy products will eventually dominate the market—and these young vegans (and “vegan-ish”) will reach for books on creativity and culture that reflect their values. As veganism goes truly mainstream, artists and entrepreneurs of older generations who routinely experience anxiety, frustration, and other corrosive emotions will be ever more receptive to Tenderheart’s message, too.

The Flaming Sword

By

IAn the beginning, the Lord sent mighty cherubim with a flaming sword to guard the holiest place on earth, the mount of Jerusalem, where the golden Dome of the Rock stands today. Now mysterious conspirators threaten to ignite world war in the same place with a “flaming sword” of a different kind. Anciently, Solomon’s Temple stood on this spot, making it holy to the Jewish faith. According to the gospels, Christ was crucified near this spot, making it holy to Christians. Finally, the prophet Mohammed took his flight to heaven from this spot, making it holy to Muslims. A threat to this epicenter of three contesting faiths could shake apart this delicate balance and bring down global ruin. In this concluding volume of The Day of Atonement series, follow Israeli agent Ari and his companion, Interpol agent Maryse, as they race across Europe toward the mount of Jerusalem and a shocking discovery that could mean the end of everything.

Risking the Rapids

By

#1 Amazon New Release! ─ Memoir and Portrait of a Family at Its Worst and Best

Some memoirs shock. Some entertain. Some take us places we’re afraid to go. A rare few move us. Once in a blue moon, a book does it all. This is Risking the Rapids.

Dysfunctional family. Risking the Rapids opens with the shocking death of O’Garden’s older brother, which prompts her and other relatives to seek closure on a journey through the remotest spot in Montana. Described genially as a river “float”, a harrowing journey unfolds. This wilderness trip is contrasted with O’Garden’s account of growing up with her six siblings in a clashing Catholic family.

Alcoholic father, mean mother, Catholic guilt. WCCO-TV personality Don O’Brien was well-known in the Twin Cities and in Minnesota. Whether forecasting weather and trading wisecracks with the anchor on the nightly news, pitching for sponsors, or hosting a Saturday night movie, he was a man people trusted. In private, Don O’Brien’s family life was a far cry from what his fans saw on TV. Little by little we see the corrosion: nightly martinis shared with his wife Betty, an undemonstrative and icy-hearted mother. The neglect. The poisoning of self-esteem. The rigidity demanded by the Catholic church. Competition. Cruelty. All packed into ordinary days and nights as a sensitive girl comes of age.

Anxiety and danger. The children vary in their response to the profound anxiety sown in the offspring of alcoholics. One brother bites his fingers to gangrene. One relentlessly bullies the author, who begins overeating compulsively. One severs all ties with the family. Danger mounts as well on the Montana raft trip, when unusual river conditions swell and speed the waters. Both stories build with escalating intensity to excruciating climaxes.

If you read and liked books such as The Liars’ ClubThe Wounded HeartComing CleanChange Me into Zeus's Daughter, or Remember Me As Loving You, you will want to read Risking the Rapids.
