||Out From the Underworld|
Heather Siegel was six years old when her mother disappeared, sending her father into a tailspin that took Heather and her siblings down with him -- from a comfortable suburban home to a barely habitable basement apartment, a dark world they soon found themselves fighting to return to from the exile of foster care, then fighting even harder to escape.

||Sweet Survival, Tales of Cooking & Coping|
"I grew up eating chocolate mousse with a silver teaspoon." So begins the title essay from this delightful compilation -- two parts memoir, one part cookbook from Laura Zinn Fromm. A former award-winning journalist and self-described sugar addict, Fromm is both funny and frank in this moving account of trying to find comfort in a family fraught with mental illness. These essays are warm and generous, as are her recipes and cooking advice. You'll find everything in here, from baking for a Nobel Prize winner to courting a kidnapper; mastering a mousse soufflé to roasting a chicken in milk. Fromm writes about her life with a tenderness and tenacity, and about food with a devotion and sensuality that will inspire even the most kitchen-phobic among us to bolt for our sauté pans. If food is love, Fromm depicts cooking as even lovelier.
