There are times when we don't want glitter or ruffles or confusing designs splattered all over our kids' clothes. That's why we love Primary. Their clothes are basic and simple and can be worn over and over again. Another reason we love Primary? They're also making Halloween easy by inspiring parents to take matters into their own hands to create clever and adorable DIY Halloween costumes without having to pick up a needle and thread.

Bundle that baby up with our selection of quality, stylish winter coats designed to fit your growing bump.
It's about that time: Ice, ice baby! There's a chill in the air, the winter months are upon us and ice skating rinks across the country are opening their gates.

Once all the holiday parties have died down and parents are back to work, the winter doldrums start to set in.

On the contrary, playing in the snow is one of the best ways to burn off (or chill out) all that pent-up energy. Plus, besides skating and sledding, there are all sorts of creative toys, games and even productive — snow chores, anyone? — things to do in the great, winter outdoors for kids and they're all available on Amazon now.

We've scoured through all the family pajama set reviews out there on every site from Target to Amazon to Nordstrom and can say with confidence that these cozy Disney, Harry Potter, Rudolph and Christmas-themed sets are, well, the cat's pajamas.

Despite such triumphs, he shocked the culinary world by taking his own life in February 2003. TheGaultMillau guidebook had recently dropped its ratings of Loiseau’s restaurant, and rumors swirled that he was on the verge of losing a Michelin star (a prediction that proved to be inaccurate).Journalist Rudolph Chelminski, who befriended Loiseau three decades ago and followed his rise to the pinnacle of French restaurateurs, now gives us a rare tour of this hallowed culinary realm. *The Perfectionist *is the story of a daydreaming teenager who worked his way up from complete obscurity to owning three famous restaurants in Paris and rebuilding La Côte d’Or, transforming a century-old inn and restaurant that had lost all of its Michelin stars into a luxurious destination restaurant and hotel. He started a line of culinary products with his name on them, appeared regularly on television and in the press, and had a beautiful, intelligent wife and three young children he adored—Bernard Loiseau seemed to have it all.An unvarnished glimpse inside an echelon filled with competition, culture wars, and impossibly high standards, The Perfectionist vividly depicts a man whose energy and enthusiasm won the hearts of staff and clientele, while self-doubt and cut-throat critics took their toll. read more

Lactose is the primary sugar found in milk. Digestion of lactose requires the enzyme lactase, which breaks lactose into simpler su...gars. When the intestine produces little or no lactase, milk sugar is not digested. New-born babies require high intestinal lactase levels for survival. Later in life though about two-thirds of all people lose the ability to produce lactase. Most of the people who keep producing it throughout adulthood are those of European ancestry but in other ethnic groups - Mexican, Jewish, African, Asian and Native American – 75 to 100 percent of adults are lactose intolerant. Primary lactose intolerance may begin at any time but usually develops in early adolescence and continues through life. Lactose intolerance means avoiding foods such as cream, butter, cheese, yoghurt, and ice cream as well as many prepared foods to which lactose is added such as bread, cereal, salad dressings, cake mixes, frozen meals. The Everyday Dairy-Free Cookbook explains all you need to know about this condition, how to tackle the problem and where to go for help and advise. As with the other titles in this best-selling Everyday series the book contains 200 recipes for family meals and there is a special section on catering for children. There are recipes for soups, dips and starters, light meals, main dishes, fish dishes, vegetarian dishes, savoury sauces and accompaniments, salads and dressings, puddings, sweet sauces, sweets and treats, baking, pastry, breakfasts, and beverages.

In Search of the Spirit of TurkeyRakı: The Spirit of TurkeyAt the mention of Turkey, many things come to mind. The meeting of Euro...pe and Asia, and of the cold north winds with the warm breezes of the Mediterra-nean; a vast, rugged landscape. To be in this country is to look at the world from the center of world history; a place where cultures, languages and faiths blend, and nothing remains the same for long.Rakı is the traditional drink of this country, and as such, reflects the fundamental aspects of its personality. Though it's as clear as water, it turns white when water is added, and with a little ice, it envelops you in the heady scent of anise. What better evidence that nothing in this country is as it appears? And in the bottle rakı may appear rather innocuous but once you drink it...!Made from distilled grapes and anise, rakı, with its nearly 500 years of history, is the central element in a unique cuisine that has grown up around it. When introduced to a conversation between a group of friends, it deepens the sincerity and friendship, making it as indispensable a lubricant for everyday life today as it has been throughout its history. It is a firsthand witness to all the major turning points of Turkish history. And finally, when trying to understand almost any aspect of Turkey, rakı assumes the role of interpreter, allowing you to understand the subtleties of this country's spirit.Author Erdir Zat edited the "Encyclopedia of Rakı" (in Turkish), published by Overteam Publishing, won first prize in the spirits division of the 17th Interna-tional Gourmet Book Awards. Now, in order to open up the conversation be-tween rakı and the world, Zat has written the first book in English book on drink. Titled "Rakı: The Spirit of Turkey," the book was written as a guide for the English-speaking public, not merely to rakı, but to everyday life and culture in Turkey.The first book in English on the subject, Rakı: The Spirit of Turkey consists of five chapters. The first, "Rakı Culture," sums up the importance of rakı in Tur-key's social and cultural life. The second chapter, "The Origins of Rakı," focuses on what we know of the drink from historic records. "The Meyhane" outlines the characteristic features of the "tavern" tradition, as well as historic laws that governed them and how they affected everyday life. "The Çilingir Sofrası" delves into the world of mezes, the mainstay of a unique cuisine that has taken shape around the hub of rakı. The last chapter, "Rakı as a Spirit," examines the subtleties of production and presentation that sets rakı apart from its peers, as well as rakı's commercial history.Written with the consultancy of Murat Belge, Raşit Çavaş, Bahattin Yücel and Vefa Zat, the book also includes a foreword by Murat Belge. Published by Overteam Press with the support of Yeni Rakı, "Rakı: The Spirit of Turkey" was translated into English by Bob Beer.İnce Kapak:Sayfa Sayısı: 206Baskı Yılı: 2012e-Kitap:Format: Sayfa Sayısı: 111Baskı Yılı: 2012Dili: İngilizceYayınevi: Overteam Yayınları read more

The Mill on the Floss, first published in 1860, tells the story of Maggie Tulliver and her brother Tom as they grow from children ...to young adults in the small rural town of St. Ogg's, England. Intelligent and passionate, Maggie yearns to develop her mind and break free of the constraints of her provincial village. Though she loves her brother above anyone else, Tom's rigid, pragmatic personality often conflicts with Maggie's headstrong nature, with increasingly tragic consequences. A classic novel of development, The Mill on the Floss is George Eliot's most autobiographical work. Through the characters of Tom and Maggie, Eliot examines themes of gender, education, and personality formation, and her portrayal of the town of St. Ogg's is both a brilliant depiction of provincial narrow-mindedness and constraining social norms and an intelligent commentary on the changes to rural life brought about by the forces of industrialization. The Mill on the Floss is an enduring portrait of love, family, and individuals striving to create their own destinies, one whose words and characters resonate as vividly today as they did for Eliot's first readers. read more

For two hundred years, a rogues' gallery of chefs, line cooks, and dishwashers have slaved away, largely unseen, to serve the dini...ng public. Their pedigrees reach back to the first restaurants during the reign of France's Louis XVI and extend to the Delmonico brothers in New York, Escoffier in Paris, and, in Fried: Surviving Two Centuries in Restaurants, a renegade cook in Minneapolis walking like a duck with a whole, raw salmon on his head.Author and professional chef Steve Lerach first stepped through the swinging kitchen doors when he was in high school, starting as a dishwasher, and he never left. He introduces us to an old potwasher who did time for bootlegging, a stuttering Irish chef who collected funds for the bomb throwers of the IRA, and a gay Vietnam vet who found a measure of acceptance only in restaurants.Lerach humorously and poignantly interweaves restaurant legend and lore with his own experiences, exposing similarities not only of profession but of the diverse characters who work the back of the house. Though funny and simply fun to read, these tales often end in tragedy, as various actors succumb to their excesses. Lerach serves up glimpses of the hard work, camaraderie, and satisfaction that distinguish careers in what may arguably be called the world's second-oldest profession. read more
