Mexican Craving: 9 Easy Steps to Cooking Authentic Mexican at Home

Patrick Calhoun

People are going to look at you differently after you read this book. They’re going to wonder what your secret is. And they’re going to ask for your Mexican food again, and again, and again.

Why? Because this book is different.

Most cookbooks throw dozens of recipes at the reader and hope a few stick.

But authentic Mexican cooking has time-honored techniques that have direct impact on the final flavor of the dishes. These techniques are glossed over in other Mexican cookbooks, leaving the reader with dozens of ingredient lists that lack know-how.

Mexican Craving tackles this trend by using 9 Easy Steps to ensure you have everything you need to make truly authentic Mexican dishes.

Author Patrick Calhoun lived in Mexico for two years, soaking up all the bits and pieces of the world’s most distinct cuisine. This knowledge has been distilled into a friendly, step-by-step primer that’s loaded with hundreds of color photographs to help accelerate the learning curve.

And the best part? It can be easy when it’s done right.

Your dishes will not only taste better than the fare at your local Mexican restaurants, they’ll also be healthier.

Spend 2-3 hours reading this book and your standard for measuring Mexican food in your area (and even in Mexico) will soon be based on a simple question you can ask yourself: “Is it as good as my own?”

Before Bethlehem

Before Bethlehem

James J. Flerlage

The Pinnacle of History through the Eyes of a Boy

This spellbinding work of historical fiction offers the eyewitness account of 15-year-old James, son of Joseph bar Jacob, and the dangerous and heartrending choices his family must make in the days leading up to Joseph’s relationship with Mary, and the birth of Jesus of Nazareth.

With crisp prose, tangible description and thought-provoking insights, Before Bethlehem takes readers on a vivid journey to the dusty Galilean village of Nazareth, where Joseph is summoned by Rabbi Boethus, a Sadducean high priest, to marry an orphaned virgin in Jerusalem. By accepting the Rabbi’s request, Joseph unknowingly thrusts himself and his family into a bitter and emotionally draining life-or-death conflict.

Joseph fights to maintain his spiritual integrity while trying desperately to keep his family together and his farm alive. He and James witness abhorring violence at the hands of the Romans, and outlandish abuses of power by their own religious leaders. As his family’s faith and hopes are threatened by scandal and scorn, James struggles between the boy he is and the man he must become.

Before Bethlehem is an eye-opening account of the Nativity story told in a suspenseful, historical context that dares to ask the question: If Joseph should have turned Mary over to be stoned, why didn’t he? His profound answer is one that forever changes the life of his son, James. And it may just change yours, as well.

The Centurion's Wife (Acts of Faith Book #1)

The Centurion’s Wife (Acts of Faith Book #1)

Janette Oke

Janette Oke has dreamed for years of retelling a story in a biblical time frame from a female protagonist’s perspective, and Davis Bunn is elated to be working with her again on this sweeping saga of the dramatic events surrounding the birth of Christianity…and the very personal story of Leah, a young Jewess of mixed heritage trapped in a vortex of competing political agendas and private trauma.

Caught up in the maelstrom following the death of an obscure rabbi in the Roman backwater of first-century Palestine, Leah finds herself also engulfed in her own turmoil–facing the prospect of an arranged marriage to a Roman soldier, Alban, who seems to care for nothing but his own ambitions. Head of the garrison near Galilee, he has been assigned by Palestine’s governor to ferret out the truth behind rumors of a political execution gone awry. Leah’s mistress, the governor’s wife, secretly commissions Leah also to discover what really has become of this man whose death–and missing body–is causing such furor.

This epic drama is threaded with the tale of an unlikely romance and framed with dangers and betrayals from unexpected sources. At its core, The Centurion’s Wife unfolds the testing of loyalties–between two young people whose inner searchings they cannot express, between their irreconcilable heritages, and ultimately between their humanity and the Divine they yearn to encounter.

Already Gone

Already Gone

Ken Ham

If you look around in your church today, two-thirds of the young people who are sitting among us have already left in their hearts; soon they will be gone for good.

This is the alarming conclusion from a study Answers in Genesis commissioned from America’s Research Group, led by respected researcher Britt Beemer. The results may unnerve you – they may shake long-held assumptions to the core – but these results need to be taken seriously by the church. Already Gone reveals:

• Why America’s churches have lost an entire generation of believers
• The views of 1,000 twenty-somethings, solidly raised in the church but no longer attending – and their reasons why
• Relevant statistical data effectively teamed with powerful apologetics

The study found that we are losing our kids in elementary, middle school, and high school rather than college, and the “Sunday school syndrome” is contributing to the epidemic, rather than helping alleviate it. This is an alarming wake-up call for the church, showing how our programs and our approaches to Christian education are failing…and our children are paying the price. Though the statistics reveal a huge disconnect taking place between our children and their church experience, Already Gone shows how to fight back for our families, our churches, and our world. We can make a difference today that will affect the statistics of tomorrow in a positive and Christ-focused way!

Wonderland Creek

Wonderland Creek

Lynn Austin

I was perfectly content with my life–that is, until the pages of my story were ripped out before I had a chance to live happily ever after.

Alice Grace Ripley lives in a dream world, her nose stuck in a book. But the happily-ever-after life she’s planned on suddenly falls apart when her boyfriend breaks up with her, accusing her of living in a world of fiction instead of the real one. To top it off, Alice loses her beloved library job because of cutbacks due to the Great Depression.

Longing to run from small-town gossip, Alice flees to the mountains of eastern Kentucky to deliver five boxes of donated books to the tiny coal-mining town of Acorn, a place with no running water, no electricity, and where the librarians ride ornery horses up steep mountain passes to deliver books. When Alice is forced to stay in Acorn far longer than she planned, she discovers that real-life adventure, mystery–and especially romance–may be far better than her humble dreams could have imagined.
