The highly anticipated complement to the New York Times bestselling Momofuku cookbook, Momofuku Milk Bar reveals the recipes for the innovative, addictive cookies, pies, cakes, ice creams, and more from the wildly popular bakery. A runaway success, the Momofuku cookbook suffered from just one criticism among reviewers and fans: where were Christina Tosi's fantastic desserts? The compost cookie, a chunky chocolate-chip cookie studded with crunchy salty pretzels and coffee grounds; the crack pie, a sugary-buttery confection as craveable as the name implies; the cereal milk ice cream, made from everyone's favorite part of a nutritious breakfast—the milk at the bottom of a bowl of cereal; the easy layer cakes that forgo fancy frosting in favor of unfinished edges that hint at the yumminess inside. Momofuku Milk Bar finally shares the recipes for these now-legendary riffs on childhood flavors and down-home classics—all essentially derived from ten mother recipes—along with the compelling narrative of the unlikely beginnings of this quirky bakery's success. It all started one day when Momofuku founder David Chang asked Christina to make a dessert for dinner that night. Just like that, the pastry program at Momofuku began, and Christina's playful desserts helped the restaurants earn praise from the New York Times and the Michelin Guide and led to the opening of Milk Bar, which now draws fans from around the country and the world. With all the recipes for the bakery's most beloved desserts—along with ones for savory baked goods that take a page from Chang’s Asian-flavored cuisine, such as Kimchi Croissants with Blue Cheese—and 100 color photographs, Momofuku Milk Bar makes baking irresistible off-beat treats at home both foolproof and fun.

Don't be fooled by the title of this seriocomic ode to success; it's not 'Climb Every Mountain,' kid version. All journeys face perils, whether from indecision, from loneliness, or worst of all, from too much waiting. Seuss' familiar pajama-clad hero is up to the challenge, and his odyssey is captured vividly in busy two-page spreads evoking both the good times grinning purple elephants, floating golden castles and the bad deep blue wells of confusion. Seuss' message is simple but never sappy: life may be a 'Great Balancing Act,' but through it all 'There's fun to be done.'"--starred Booklist.

Penelope Casas, who introduced the classic little dishes of Spain to American cooks more than twenty years ago, now gives us a splendid updated edition of that seminal book—with fifty exciting new recipes and eight full pages of new color photographs showing tapas in all their glory.

Between the time that a woman first decides to start a family and the day her menstrual cycle resumes following the birth of her child, the hormonal changes she experiences are more dramatic than at any other time in her life; yet no book has ever focused on these hormonal changes, how they affect not only the mom, but her baby's brain development as well. Now, in his new, groundbreaking book, PERFECT HORMONE BALANCE FOR PREGNANCY, hormone expert and OB/GYN Dr. Robert Greene releases the results of years of research, and provides his plan for having the healthiest pregnancy -- and baby -- by maintaining excellent hormone health. In three comprehensive sections, Dr. Greene describes his new vision of pregnancy by exploring the intimate connection between a woman's hormones and how they impact every aspect of her pregnancy, her ability to conceive, fatigue and morning sickness, libido, weight gain, blood pressure, possible complications, preterm delivery, and beyond. In Part II, Dr. Greene presents "The Perfect Balance Pregnancy Program," a plan that includes diet, exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle recommendations, with the focus on achieving hormone balance during each phase of pregnancy. Part III is devoted to troubleshooting and applies Dr. Greene's cutting-edge research on hormones to less common problems, such as sexual dysfunction, miscarriage, mood disorders, sleep troubles, and the impact of pregnancy on appearance. Throughout, Dr. Greene arms his readers with the tools they need before, during, and after pregnancy to stay healthy and feel great. Publisher: Random House
