• THE NONSTOP GARDEN

    CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $19.95. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

    With hectic lifestyles and busy schedules, people are finding it more and more appealing to enjoy their leisure time at home rather than packing their bags in search of peaceful retreats. But how can they confidently create a garden retreat? By following Cohen and Benner’s trusted advice and building a nonstop garden, they’ll have more creative planting options, a garden that provides year-round interest, and - most importantly - a yard that requires less maintenance than a traditional perennial border.

    The Nonstop Garden gives gardeners all the information they need to create a productive, beautiful garden from the ground up. This easy-to-use guide is split into four main parts: the nuts and bolts of designing a mixed garden, the garden’s main attractions (trees and shrubs), the garden’s supporting cast (bulbs, annuals, edibles, and vines), and finishing touches (ornamentation, containers, and garden structures). The Nonstop Garden also includes ten fail-safe design plans that can be incorporated into any garden. Gardeners can choose from a native garden, a scented garden, a gold-colored garden, a garden for wet sites, a vibrant-colored garden, a cool-colored garden, a winter garden, a shade garden, and a design plan for the daunting area known as the hellstrip. Building a better, smarter garden has never been so much fun.

  • THE OMEGA DIET

    "Good fats" (that is, essential fatty acids) influence every aspect of our being, from the beating of our hearts to our ability to learn to remember. There are two types of essential fatty acids (EFAs): omega-6 and omega-3. The problem with our modern diet is that it contains far more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3s. This hidden imbalance makes us more vulnerable to heart disease, cancer, obesity, autoimmmune diseases, allergies, diabetes and depression.

    The Omega Diet is a natural, time-tested diet that balances the essential fatty acids in your diet. It is packed with delicious food that contain the "good" fats (including real salad dressing, cheese, eggs, fish and even the occasional chocolate dessert),and an abundance of antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables and legumes.

    The Omega Diet provides:

    • seven simple dietary guidelines for optimal physical and mental health
    • a concise guide to the foods you need to restore your body's nutritional balance
    • a diet plan that lets you eat fat as you lose fat
    • 50 delicious recipes that are quick and easy to prepare
    • a comprehensive three-week menu to help you get started

    The Sky-liners

    Flagan and Galloway Sackett had made a deal to escort Judith Costello, the granddaughter of a wealthy Irish horse trader, to her father’s home in Colorado. Flagan saw nothing but trouble in the pretty, fiery young woman, but they needed the horses. Unfortunately, Flagan was right, for Judith had fallen for James Black Fetchen, a charismatic gunman whose courtship hid the darkest of intentions. Flagan and Galloway could only guess why Judith was so important to Fetchen and what awaited them at her father’s ranch. One thing Flagan knew for sure: the tough and spirited woman had won his heart. But could he trust her with his life?

    Galloway

    Trouble was following Flagan Sackett with a vengeance. Captured and tortured by a band of Apaches, he had escaped into the rugged San Juan country, where he would try to stay alive until his brother, Galloway, could find him. But the brothers were about to find worse trouble ahead. Their plan to establish a ranch had angered the Dunn clan, who had decided that the vast range would be theirs alone. Now Galloway and Flagan would face an enemy who killed for sport — but as long as other Sacketts lived, they would not fight alone.

  • THE SPLENDID GRAIN

    CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $22.99 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

    With 250 luscious recipes, along with eight pages of color photographs, The Splendid Grain dramatizes how you can incorporate extraordinarily healthful grains into your life without changing your lifestyle.

    Grains can transform taste and texture in unsurpassed ways like these:

    • Nutty, sweet oats form the delicious crust of fried chicken
    • Piquant quinoa heightens and absorbs the savory juices of gingered lamb
    • Hearty buckwheat becomes a sweet, delicate, Parisian-inspired crepe
    • Thai black sticky rice flavored with coconut makes unforgettable exotic banana dumplings.
    The natural and native history of each grain is also explored along with its health benefits.

    Now more than ever Americans are looking for delicious ways to integrate extraordinarily healthful whole grains into their lives without having to change their lifestyles. The Splendid Grain shows you how whole grains can replace or be added to recipes to not only kick up the nutritional value of every meal but to add essential flavor and flair. A revolution is quietly taking place in restaurants and in our kitchens, where we are cooking with more unusual grains like quinoa, millet, and wheat berries in addition to the more familiar rice, buckwheat, and corn. The Splendid Grain provides irresistible recipes for these grains and also introduces the next frontiers in grain cooking: tef and sorghum from North Africa, Job's tears from Asia, and mesquite and amaranth from America. Wood's expertise on the natural and native history of grains, their medicinal and nutritional properties, and her exhaustive knowledge of selection, storage, and cooking methods make The Splendid Grain not only a remarkable cookbook but an essential resource.
