Lady and Sons Just Desserts: More than 120 Sweet Temptations from Savannah's Favorite Restaurant
Paula H. Deen
0743290208
April 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Warmly effusive and dear yet gritty, Paula H. Deen seems mythically Southern. But this cooking luminary, proprietor of Savannah, Georgia's Lady & Sons restaurant, is the real thing. The Lady & Sons Just Desserts, her all-sweets follow-up to The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook and The Lady & Sons, Too!, celebrates the Southern sweet tooth with 120 recipes, including traditional formulas for the likes of Brown Sugar Pound Cake and Lemon Chess Pie as well as best-loved restaurant innovations like Turtle Cake, Lemon Curd Pudding, and Gooey Butter Cake. ("These are very, very rich," Deen advises, "and a little goes a long way--even for piggies like me!") Lovers of the restaurant--which grew to prominence from $200 and lots of determination--as well as those seeking easy-to-fix temptations should put this book to happy...


Paula Deen and Friends: Living It Up, Southern Style
Paula H. Deen
0743267222
March 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Deen, the popular Food Network personality and proprietor of the Savannah restaurant The Lady & Sons, shares 24 party menus, featuring recipes culled from her friends and family. Of course, things are skewed Southern, but Deen's quick to point out that "the love and appreciation for our Deep South cookin' knows no geographic boundaries" (nor does it know any dietary restrictions). Working with Savannah magazine's Nesbit, Deen covers festive but low-key events such as a Bridge Club Supper and a Georgia Bulldawg Parking Lot Tailgate, as well as a few holidays, including a New Year's Day Soup Lunch. The authors and their friends—there's a preschool teacher, a scoutmaster, "Martha's husband Gary's cousin" and others—are bent on making their brunches, lunches and dinners colorful but casual. Among...


My Father the Spy
John H. Richardson
0060510366
Aug 2006
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The author's father, the hero of this heartfelt if shapeless saga, started out a leftish romantic but eventually became the powerful CIA station chief in Vienna, Manila and then Saigon. Drawing on government documents and reminiscences of his father's colleagues, journalist Richardson (The Viper's Club), depicts his father, John Sr., as a humane, principled official coping effectively with great crises. But his home life, reconstructed from memory, personal letters and diary entries, is a less engaging domestic melodrama of intergenerational incomprehension, featuring an interminable series of chilly miscommunications, youthful provocations, drunken scenes and fumbling reconciliations. The story implicitly links the demise of American hegemony to the waning of paternal prestige, but it's not clear what one has to...

Book Description
A century and a half of golf instruction, 127 great essays, 96 of the sport's best players, teachers, and writersNearly 150 years have passed since H. B. Farnie's The Golfer's Manual was published in Scotland. In all that time there has been no comprehensive book that brings together the classic lessons of the great players and teachers of the game and presents that wisdom in their own words-until now. Here, in one elegantly designed and illustrated volume, the men and women who both pioneered and popularized the game of golf provide instruction in every aspect of the sport. From H. J. Whigham's unified swing theory (1897) to Ben Hogan's modern fundamentals; from Joyce Wethered on visualizing the shot to Lee Trevino on psyching out your opponent, the 127 original, idiosyncratic, and trailblazing essays in this book...


H. H. Richardson: The Architect, His Peers, and Their Era

Book Description
introduction by William H. Pierson, Jr.


In this book leading scholars reconsider the significance of the late nineteenth-century American architect Henry Hobson Richardson, perhaps best known for his design of Boston's Trinity Church. Against the long-held view of Richardson as an isolated and proto-modernist genius, they argue for a broader understanding of his work within the context of his times. Viewed this way, Richardson becomes a more challenging figure--an architect who in many ways was shaped by and was consistent with his era, even as he dominated it.

Thomas C. Hubka and Margaret Henderson Floyd examine individual Richardson buildings as vessels for his ideas. Francis R. Kowsky and James F. O'Gorman clarify our understanding of Richardson and his work in comparison to...


The English Jewry Under Angevin Kings

Book Description
The purpose of the author is to correct, with the aid of all available evidence, current beliefs regarding the activities of the Jews in medieval England. Their relations with the Gentile community in which they lived are described, not as is conventionally imagined, but as these relations are disclosed on a dispassionate examination of surviving documents--for example, the close association of Jews and monasteries, of nearly every religious order, in the acquisition of landed estates.

Functional Organic and Polymeric Materials
Tim H. Richardson
0471987247
Jan 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Describing exciting new developments in the field of organic molecular materials which have transformed the use of materials in the modern world in the last 20 years or so, the focal point of 'Functional Organic and Polymeric Molecular Materials' is the concept of 'molecular functionality - macroscopic reality'. That is, the close relationships between the properties of isolated, discrete molecules and those of assembled arrays of molecules in thin films or crystals. Organic chemistry provides materials researchers with the wonderful opportunity to design bulk materials whose properties at the macroscopic level reflect closely the modelled or actual behaviour of individual molecules or small arrays of molecules. The iterative "design-test-design" approach to has led in recent years to major advances in such fields as...


Distant Corner: Seattle Architects and the Legacy of H. H. Richardson
Jeffrey Karl Ochsner
0295982381
January 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
On the afternoon of 6 June 1889, a fire in a cabinet shop in downtown Seattle spread to destroy more than thirty downtown blocks covering 116 acres. Disaster soon became opportunity as Seattleís citizens turned their full energies to rebuilding: widening and regrading streets, laying new water pipes and sewer lines, promulgating a new building ordinance requiring construction in the commercial core, and creating a new professional fire department. A remarkable number of buildings, most located in Seattleís present-day Pioneer Square Historic District, were permitted within a few months and constructed within a few years of the Great Seattle Fire. As a result, the post-fire rebuilding of Seattle offers an extraordinarily focused case study of late-nineteenth-century American urban architecture. Seattleís...

What Makes You Think We Read the Bills

Book Description
Have you ever wondered what really happens when your elected representatives get together to: spend your money; write laws making some things illegal, others illegal; and, try to "satisfy" all the lobbyists at the same time? You can stop wondering. Bill Richardson has let the cat out of the bag. You'll be both amused and outraged at his tales of the day to day shenanigans in your state and national capitols. Does your legislator suddenly stop being your representative? He's just suffered Peer-Group Shift (see Chapter 12). Does The Majority Elect? (answer in Chapter 18). Have you heard gossip about Sexy Solons? (read Chapter 21). There are wildly funny chapters -- Ze Mooz (4) Burros and the Pill (9), Gangrene and the Board of Education (16) -- as well as plenty of straight talk about how and why our legislators are no...
