This classic set-and-forget small kitchen appliance is always in style, thanks to its convenience and ease of use. There are several key factors to consider when buying a slow cooker. First, its capacity. How many servings do you want it to cook? Second, settings. Do you need a basic high/low option, or do you want to use your slow cooker for a range of cooking methods? Third is shape. Oval works best for larger cuts of meat, while round is ideal for liquid or small, uniform ingredients. You should also consider the type of lid, inside material, and handle design. Here are our top three recommendations.
Gluten. Salt. Sugar. Fat. These are the villains of the American diet-or so a host of doctors and nutritionists would have you bel...ieve. But the science is far from settled, and we are racing to eliminate wheat and corn syrup from our diets because we've been lied to. The truth is that almost all of us can put the buns back on our burgers and be just fine. Remember when butter was the enemy? Now it's good for you. You may have lived through times when the Atkins Diet was good, then bad, and then good again; you may have wondered why all your friends cut down on salt or went Paleo; and you might even be thinking about cutting out wheat products from your own diet. In this groundbreaking work, Alan Levinovitz, PhD, exposes the myths behind how we come to believe which foods are good and which are bad and points the way to a truly healthful life, free from anxiety about what we eat. read more

Published in Boston in 1833, the Cook’s Own Book, and Housekeeper’s Register is believed to be the first alphabetically-arranged c...ulinary encyclopedia. The book was one of the most popular cookbooks of the 19th century and had at least a dozen different printings before 1865. It started the alphabetical listing with Aberdeen Crulla and Alamode Beef and ended with Yeast, Potato and Zests. Besides just the alphabetical section of the book, the Cook’s Own Book, and Housekeeper’s Register also contains articles about techniques of cooking, preparing soups and broths, curing meats, managing families, utensils, and diet, and a table of weights and measurements. The book was basically a compendium of recipes compiled from diverse British and American sources, and although many of the recipes and information are borrowed (a common practice of the time), author Mrs. N.K.M. Lee added many of her own original recipes to the collection making this culinary tome a true historical treasury. This edition of Cook’s Own Book, and Housekeeper’s Register was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the Society is a research library documenting the life of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The Society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection includes approximately 1,100 volumes. read more
