Colette Bouchez
0767917561
April 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
For women, there's the quest for achieving the big "O," the worry about experiencing the big "C," and the fear of enduring the onset of the big "M." But for Bouchez, a New York Times syndicated columnist and award-winning health and medial writer for the New York Daily News, menopause isn't a time to be dreaded but one to be celebrated. "As lots of women can tell you, reaching menopause can seem more like a beginning than an end anyway-the start of the second phase of your life." Just look at Oprah Winfrey, Diane Sawyer, Diane Keaton. But there are still lots of challenges associated with the end of a woman's reproductive years. In what could be described as the bible of menopause, Bouchez provides a well-researched, informative A-to-Z guide on how to deal with everything from hot flashes and mood swings to...


Colette's Christmas/Cakes, Cookies, Pies and Other Edible Art from the Author of Colette's Cakes
Colette Peters, Alex McLean (Photographer)
0316702064


·
 
From Library Journal
Peters ( Colette's Cakes , LJ 8/91) was a designer at Tiffany's before starting a successful cake-designing business in New York City, and her artistic talents are evident in the elaborate, often jewellike cookies, cakes, and ornaments and decorations in her new book. Decoration is the star in this collection of whimsical fantasies, from stunning stained glass cakes to a miniature Victorian greenhouse constructed of royal icing. There are some less complicated projects, and holiday bakers will be inspired by the cut-out cookies and gift ideas--but busy cooks would probably have to start now to complete some of these creations before next year's Christmas! For most baking collections.Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Publishers Weekly
Hamilton (Incubus Dreams) delivers a highly palatable portion of what makes her series heroine, federal marshal and vampire-hunter Anita Blake, a bestseller: equal portions hot sex and supernatural crime fighting—with a dollop of old-fashioned male-female melodrama—served up in a world where new were-animals have their own crisis hotline. Filling in for a colleague, Anita travels to Philadelphia to reanimate a deceased federal witness, accompanied by Micah, her wereleopard lover.

Colette's Birthday Cakes
Colette Peters
0316702749
Apr 2000
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
A cake is de rigeur for any American birthday celebration worthy of the name. Continuing her series of volumes pictorializing her sumptuous cakes, Peters brings her decorative skills to cakes designed specifically for birthday observances. And anyone receiving a cake like one of Peters' creations should be particularly grateful. Peters' skill with milled fondant overshadows that of most other professional bakers. She can carve fondant into tight, sharp geometries, or she can swirl it, fold it, and wave it into silken ruffles and curves that belie its solidity. Line drawings assist the cook in recreating these elegant pastries, but only professionals and those with some formal training in handling fondants and cake-decorating tools and techniques will readily pick up on Peters' barebones instructions. Recipes, too,...

Paperback
·
 
Review
'This is a book that no student of the origins of Kabbalah and its relation to mediaeval thought in general can afford to ignore.' Hermetic Journal
'A remarkably comprehensive and informative work.' Journal of Semitic Studies
'A History of Jewish Philosophy in the Middle Ages will be of great use not only to those interested in Jewish thought; it should also be consulted by students of Muslim and Christian thought too.' Renaissance Studies

Review
"Mme. Sirat proves to be a trustworthy and authoritative guide. She relies to a large extent, quite rightly, on lengthy quotations from the philosophers she discusses, and she manages to place them neatly and accurately in wider sociological and intellectual contexts. Her canvas is broad and readers will encounter...many writers of whose...

The Art of Manipulating Fabric
Colette Wolff

October 1996
Paperback

Amazon.com
Those who knit, crochet, or embroider have long had sources to which to turn for in-depth instructions on specific stitches and stitch combinations. Now there is such a reference for the sewer--an encyclopedic approach to gathering, shirring, ruffling, tucking, pleating, and quilting and their myriad variations. Filled with hundreds of diagrams and crisp black-and-white photos, this volume explains in detail how to achieve a tremendous range of three-dimensional fabric effects. This is not a book of particular projects; this is a book of instruction and inspiration for anyone who has ever wielded needle and thread. --Amy Handy


Return to Paris
Colette Rossant
0743439686
Apr 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
When she was a teen, Rossant, whose mother was French and father was Egyptian, moved from Cairo back to Paris (where she was born) with her widowed mother to live with her grandmother in the upscale 17th arrondissement. This book charts Rossant's years in Paris and ends shortly after her marriage to an American. Although Rossant (Memories of a Lost Egypt) came of age in Paris during one of its headiest times-the 1950s-she doesn't offer much in the way of descriptions of the era. Instead, her memoir is personal, describing her struggles with her distant mother and her stern, difficult grandmother. It was hard for Rossant to get used to life in Paris: the city was gray and lifeless compared with lively Cairo; Rossant had to hide the fact that she'd been educated at a convent in Egypt (her Jewish grandmother in...
