coverPalk

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Sgt. Potter’s Homecookin’ with Short-Cuts” by Jennifer Palk.

A former Air Force member shares recipes she honed while on the job and as a single mom in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. The recipes provide short cuts to home-style cooking, something working parents may have to do without because they don’t have enough time.

Imagine eating a home-cooked meal that takes a fraction of the time it normally would take to prepare. That’s the inspiration behind this new cookbook, created by a former Air Force member – known by most as Sgt. Potter – who treated not only her young sons but fellow flyers to homemade baked goods and meals. This single mom put their feedback to good use, learning short-cuts that allowed her to create delicious, nutritious meals and desserts while still having time to spend with her boys.

In “Sgt. Potter’s Homecookin’ with Short Cuts,” Jennifer Palk (formerly Sgt. Potter) shares knowledge she’s gained thanks to her time in the Air Force and years of baking with her family as a young girl. From Andrew’s Chocolate Mint Cookies and Apple Butter to Zack’s Apple Jack Cookies and Zucchini Bread, this family friendly cookbook arranged in alphabetical order offers something for everyone. Entrees include such offerings as Calzones, Dad’s BBQ Ribs, Easy Parmesan Chicken and Roberts Chili. Diabetic-friendly recipes include Apple Pie Cake, Banana Pudding, Carrot Snack Cake and Sherry’s Peach Cobbler. Even pets will find something to like with recipes for homemade dog biscuits and holiday dog treats.

Author Jennifer Palk served in the U.S. Air Force for 17 years, most of it as a single mother with young boys. She and her family live in Baxter, Tenn. She began compiling the material for the book when friends asked for her recipes.

Mouth-Watering Recipes for Trout Star in New Cookbook by Executive Chef

coverAfricano

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Trout: On the Fly” by James Africano.

A chef invites fly fisherman to get out their rods as he shares recipes he created for freshly caught trout in this new cookbook released by Dog Ear Publishing.

The customer is always right, and that belief led to this new cookbook featuring 21 recipes for preparing fresh trout. James Africano, executive chef for the last six years at Ted Turner’s Vermejo Park Ranch in New Mexico, was inspired to create the book after being asked almost every night to cook trout caught by guests at the ranch. Readers will find recipes simple enough for average cooks faced with preparing freshly caught trout but creative enough to tempt more experienced gourmands.

“Trout: On the Fly” has its roots in a basic recipe for classic cornmeal fried trout that grew into a menu featuring more than 20 variations for preparing trout. Africano includes a recipe for Trout Amandine – a true classic dish – as well as a recipe for the more unusual Tempura Trout, which includes a sweet chile sauce for dipping. Hickory Smoked Trout offers a creative dish for brunch or as an appetizer served before dinner. The rich dish Blackened Trout with Ettoufe, which includes ½ pound of crawfish tails, will create buzz no matter when it’s served.

Beer-battered Trout vies with Sesame-crusted Trout with Ginger, Lime Cilantro Butter for favorite dish, while Poached Trout Vinaigrette allows guests to eat chilled fish on a hot night. For a classic New Mexico twist, the cookbook includes Blue Corn Crusted Trout with Chipotle Cream. Cooks who favor Asian cuisine can prepare Trout Rangoon, a variation on the deep-fried dish offered at a Chinese buffet.

Author James Africano focuses on seasonal produce, game meats and fresh seafood in his capacity as executive chef at Ted Turner’s Vermejo Park Ranch in northern New Mexico. The dining experience mirrors the fishing, hunting and outdoor activities that bring enthusiasts to Vermejo Park.

New Cookbook Touts Benefits of Eating to Stay Healthy; Sharmila Patil Bhagirath Releases New Book

coverJogdand

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Tridoshik Recipes” by Shamila Patil Bhagirath.

Author Sharmila Patil Bhagirath bestows the fruits of her many years of research in Ayurvedic cooking upon readers interested in using food as a route to wellness of body and mind in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of longevity, uses the natural aspects of food as a way to heal.

Ayurveda is a venerable Indian tradition focusing on maintaining health and longevity using food as a medicine. Unlike many of today’s theories about health, this method of nutrition focuses not only on the nutrients contained within the food but the food’s digestibility and its post-digestion effect. In her new book, author Sharmila Patil Bhagirath explains the teachings of Ayurveda and the approach to food in addition to sharing many healthful, delicious recipes that will allow readers to maintain optimum health.

According to Ayurveda, All matter is made up of five elements (space, air, fire, water and earth). These elements are represented in the body as Vata (air & space), Pitta (fire & water) and Kapha (earth & water) which are called Tridoshas. Food also contains these five elements. Building on this connection, Ayurveda utilizes energies of the food to heal and balance the body. So if you have more water element in the body creating imbalance and disease, Ayurveda recommends using food that contains more fire element to restore this imbalance. This is the basic principle behind Ayurvedic cooking. Tridoshik recipes are the ones which balance all three doshas. Ayurveda identifies certain food, spices and cooking methods that are tridosha balancing. The tridoshik recipes contained in this book help restore and maintain this balance in the body, irrespective of one’s doshas.

Sharmila explains the different qualities of the doshas and shares the issues an imbalance can cause. After a thorough explanation of these different aspects, she dives into a huge variety of dishes that will tempt the palate of any reader.

Tridosik Recipes: The Food Alchemy provides a thoughtful approach to food that will allow readers to maintain perennial good health as they eat delicious meals. Providing recipes that are easy to follow and practical, the author makes healthful cooking reachable to even novice cooks.

Author Sharmila Patil Bhagirath, a freelance writer, hails from India, where she’s pursuing her second master’s degree from National Law School of India University in Bangalore, India. She has spent more than 15 years exploring the world of Ayurveda and shares the knowledge in this accessible collection of recipes.

A chef offers youngsters recipes and tips for both creating dishes and marketing them in this new illustrated cookbook released by Dog Ear Publishing.

A new generation of young entrepreneurs can find inspiration and education in creating and selling tasty treats right in their own neighborhood, thanks to a chef who enjoys showing children his craft.

Syrian Dishes Take on Exciting Flavor in Newly Released Cookbook By Janice Jweid Reed

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Sitto’s Kitchen: A Treasury of Syrian Family Recipes Taught from Mother to Daughter for Over 100 Years” by Janice Jweid Reed.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Sitto’s Kitchen: A Treasury of Syrian Family Recipes Taught from Mother to Daughter for Over 100 Years” by Janice Jweid Reed.

Century-old Syrian recipes revealed in this new collection that’s part cookbook and part biography. Dog Ear Publishing releases book that features original recipes from the author’s grandmother, along with contemporary cooking tips and memories associated with each dish.

Recipes brought by a 14-year-old Syrian immigrant to Ellis Island in 1912 gain new life in this collection of treasured recipes and memories. Janice Jweid Reed lovingly presents dishes her grandmother learned in Aleppo, Syria, representing more than 100 years of traditional Arab cooking. Reed describes techniques used long ago but simplifies and updates them for modern cooks. Dishes range from traditional Aleppo breakfasts to after-dinner Arab sweets, showcasing the variety this distinctive Middle East cuisine offers the palate.

“Sitto’s Kitchen: A Treasury of Syrian Family Recipes Taught from Mother to Daughter for Over 100 Yearsoffers more than a unique cuisine to adventurous cooks and those who want to recapture their own heritage. Reed includes family memories, commentaries and helpful preparation tips for each dish. She reminisces about her grandmother’s breakfast biscuits (Kahek) flavored with fennel seed and anise.  Favorite dishes like Aunt Zekeya’s Tabbouleh salad, Syrian stuffing, Open Meat Pies, aromatic Barley Pilaf, Tamarind Meatballs and a spring yogurt salad, which traditionally heralded Easter and springtime, colorfully capture her heritage.  She recounts a fundraising gala for St. Jude Hospital led by Danny Thomas and the fava bean dip served.  Reed includes both the English and Arabic names for all dishes, inviting young cooks to learn about this culture while exploring its cuisine and the history surrounding it. She showcases a tradition of hospitality learned at her grandmother’s side. Color and B&W Photos, a guide to cook’s tools, pantry staples, a glossary and list of places to buy the more exotic ingredients and spices round out this homage to Middle Eastern cuisine.

Author Janice Jweid Reed began compiling her grandmother’s recipes in 1966 in a spiral notebook while living in the Midwest with her young family.  She’s faithfully preserved these previously unwritten recipes with this cookbook and continues the legacy of her grandmother, Sitto Naima.  Reed grew up in Paterson, N.J., a vibrant community with many Syrian and Lebanese families.
