A New York Times Best Cookbook of Fall 2016 • A warm and inviting guide to turning birthdays, holidays, and everyday occasions into cherished traditions, with more than 100 time-tested recipes—from the creator of the popular blog and book Dinner: A Love Story and author of the New York Times bestseller Dinner: The Playbook “Families crave rituals,” says Jenny Rosenstrach, and by rituals she means not just the big celebrations—Valentine’s Day dinners, Mother’s Day brunches, Halloween send-offs, Thanksgiving feasts, holiday cocktail parties—but the little ones we may not even realize are rituals: a platter of deluxe nachos on Super Bowl Sunday, or a bowl of creamy mashed potatoes after every braces-tightening session. Whether simple or elaborate, daily or annual, these rituals all serve the same purpose for Rosenstrach: to bring comfort, connection, and meaning to every day. 100+ recipes, including: • popovers, apple fritters, and golden pancakes, perfect for sleepover mornings or birthday breakfasts • “Interfaith Sliders”: one version with ham and another with brisket • Rosenstrach’s legendary chocolate Mud Cake—plus an entire section on birthdays, including a one-size-fits-all party planner that does not rely on pizza • complete menus for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve • and, of course, dozens of Rosenstrach’s signature family dinners: Grilled Soy-Glazed Pork Chops, Harissa Roasted Chicken, Crispy Chickpeas with Yogurt Sauce and Naan, Grilled Spicy Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Butter and Summer Cabbage, and more In this digital, overscheduled age, How to Celebrate Everything helps families slow down, capture the moments that matter—and eat well while doing it. Praise for How to Celebrate Everything “I have been an ardent fan of Jenny Rosenstrach’s beautiful writing for years. I always know that every word of her books will be something to savor, and How to Celebrate Everything will strike a chord with anyone who enjoys family, friends, and delicious food.”—Ree Drummond, New York Times bestselling author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks “Enjoy How to Celebrate Everything for the easy-to-follow recipes. But even more satisfying are the wonderful anecdotes of family life and [Jenny Rosenstrach’s] genial examination of the lasting role that food plays in our lives beyond the plate.”—Family Circle (September “What We’re Reading” Pick) “With characteristic warmth and humor, [Rosenstrach] urges readers to ritualize and celebrate the small moments in family life by sharing stories from her own. . . . Rosenstrach is a skilled storyteller and introduces each occasion with an engaging essay before offering up the much-loved recipes that inspired it. . . . A delicious and delightful ode to the ways family and food intertwine, reinforcing each other.”—Booklist “Featured recipes are proven kid friendly and presented with humorous mommy angst and nostalgic commentary . . . Rosenstrach inspires, reminding us that the real celebration is family itself.”—Publishers Weekly “This well-designed cookbook comes with a side helping of lifestyle inspiration.”—Library Journal

100 Ways to Kill a Teacher Book Excerpt:

What does it mean to be a cog in the educational system? This compilation of stories from a long and distinguished career in education will help those entering the field—or still in it—to understand the many pitfalls, heartbreaks, and limitations they’ll face. But it will also be eye-opening for anyone with a stake in the world of education: parents, administrators, consultants, teachers, and just about anyone who hopes to live in a society where the education system actually serves those it’s supposed to. Organized into ten lively chapters, it tackles the hard questions such as: getting hired, sexual harassment, racism towards teachers and students, paternalism, toxic positivity, dealing with crazy coworkers, and self-care. It speaks to the gaps, hidden agendas, and rules of the public education system from the point of view of a committed, long-time educator. Biting, insightful, infused with righteous anger...and frequently hilarious, 100 Ways to Kill a Teacher works as an early warning system to new teachers, as a guide for current educators, and as a great resource for parents.

The Playful and Powerful Warrior Within You Book Excerpt:

Reclaim your personal power and be the playful and powerful Warrior that God wants you to be. You are closer to realizing and having all of your goals, dreams, and aspirations than you realize. Find the love, peace, playfulness, and power inside of you to live a meaningful life on purpose with purpose. This book is a tool with the potential to evoke lasting life changes in the individual who reads it. This revelation had humble beginnings. Ten years ago, GJ Reynolds enjoyed great success as an entrepreneur. As a former soldier, he carried a tough exterior. Hidden underneath was a man suffering from deep depression and suicidal thoughts. He found healing through a commitment of his life to Christ, and choosing action rather than self-pity - a message he now shares with audiences around the country. Motivational speaker and author GJ Reynolds is redefining what it means to be a warrior. In his book, Reynolds encourages readers to find their own inner warrior by reclaiming their personal power and pursuing an authentic life in Christ. The book provides the tools Reynolds says that are necessary to live a meaningful life "on purpose, with purpose" which include: Put God First, Forgive Yourself, Live in the Now, Surround Yourself with the Right People, Be Playful and Find Your Purpose.

The Effortless Mind Book Excerpt:

A GUIDE TO THE UNIQUE POWER OF BEEJA MEDITATION TO OVERCOME STRESS AND ANXIETY, HELPING US TO THRIVE. ‘Will’s meditation is a game changer. If you want to understand meditation more deeply and how you can harness the benefits, The Effortless Mind is where it’s at. I will be giving this important book to everyone I know.’ Jasmine Hemsley, author of The Art of Eating Well ‘Will makes meditation cool. Say hello to a clearer mind thanks to your new bulletproof technique to help you relax and unleash your best self.’ Madeleine Shaw, author of Get The Glow Daily life can feel like a fast-paced treadmill, leaving little time to unwind, re-charge and do what brings us joy. Meditation is a powerful way to hit the pause button, increase your energy and start to enjoy life more. The Effortless Mind is renowned meditation teacher Will Williams’s must-have guide for modern-day meditators. Suffering from chronic stress and insomnia, Will undertook years of research and training with leading experts from around the world, which led him to find the cure he was looking for in Beeja meditation. In The Effortless Mind, Will explains how his Vedic-inspired method of meditation has transformed the lives of his students – all of whom are busy people of all ages and all backgrounds. Their inspiring stories and the scientific research into meditation show the profound physical, mental and emotional benefits you can gain from such a simple daily practice, including more energy, better sleep, greater clarity, less anxiety and a happier outlook on life. More praise for The Effortless Mind: ‘Meditation can be a powerful tool in managing anxiety, stress and other common daily experiences that so many people seem to face and Vedic meditation with Will is one of the simplest forms of meditation there is, making it incredibly accessible for anyone to learn.’ Annie Clarke, author of Mind Body Bowl ‘I learnt how to meditate with Will Williams two years ago and since then so many things have changed. I have a life-long tool that has brought me calm, clarity and increased creativity and allowed me to far more effectively weather the storms of everyday life. Will is the most generous, warm and gracious teacher.’ Eminé Rushton, Wellbeing Director, Psychologies ‘Within a few months of learning to meditate with Will, I realised I was starting to have so many ideas for songs and books, as well as helping me with a busy schedule of touring and being a dad.’ Howard Donald, Take That ‘Beeja meditation is now part of my daily routine. It has been hugely beneficial in so many ways. Will is very supportive and nurturing and makes learning seem easy and fun. I feel extremely grateful this has come into my life.’ Cressida Bonas, actress ‘Will’s practical, non-woo-woo approach to meditation has enabled thousands of busy people to find a way to fit a regular practice into their lives.’ Lesley Thomas, The Times

Folly Book Excerpt:

Chris Landrum is about to have it all-an extended vacation, a second home at the beach, and early retirement in his fifties. There's only one glitch: murder is part of the package on the small South Carolina barrier island of Folly Beach, where eccentric residents live bohemian lifestyles in the shadow of historic Charleston. Soon after settling in Folly Beach, Chris is befriended by an unlikely cadre of quirky locals: a real estate agent who looks like an out-of-season Santa with an attitude; a waitress who shares rumors and effuses charm; a professor; a lovely, intelligent, and unattached reporter; and a president-quoting, tag-along companion. He is fascinated by the company of his newfound friends, the novelty of the strange island that they call home, and the contrast of it all with stately Charleston. But when Chris finds the body of a prominent developer and lands in the middle of the Folly Beach spotlight, he immediately becomes a threat to the killer-and his vacation paradise might be the scene of his own untimely death. Vacations aren't nearly as much fun when one of your new acquaintances is trying to kill you, and catching a murderer is not the normal way to spend an extended holiday. But on Folly Beach, what's normal?

Living Dangerously Book Excerpt:

Osho is one of the best-known spiritual teachers of our time. The Sunday Times named him one of the '1,000 makers of the twentieth century'; the novelist Tom Robbins has called him 'the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ'. Nearly two decades after his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to grow, reaching seekers around the world. This inspiring compendium of spiritual wisdom and insight offers a way for everyone to access the enlightening message of the Buddha as Osho offers his unique take on his teachings, with a wisdom and wit that make it a wonderful read. When you engage with Osho's writing, you feel as if he is speaking to you. His conversational style is fluid and engaging, and while his acute perception often comes as a delight and a surprise, his shrewd insights will stay with you always. Whether he is discussing a complex philosophy, or the teachings of a great mystic, Osho always approaches the subject with his own distinctively irreverent, thought-provoking and inspiring perspectives. Covering subjects including Belief, Responsibility, Relationships, Doing Good and the Power of Consciousness, this is a book that offers real insight into leading a more spiritual life now.
