I liked this book because it shows how to cut up various meats. This book would have come in handy the other day when my husband & I made lobster at home for the first time (although youtube did come to the rescue!). Another must buy book if you cook a lot of meat.
I have a hard time figuring out new ways to prepare leafy green veggies or you know, any veggies at all. This book had a plethora of recipes for every leafy green you could imagine and then some.
Hidden Girl: The True Story of a Modern-Day Child Slave by Hall, Shyima
I was surprised to find this was a YA book half way through reading this book. It's about a girl from Egypt whose family gets blackmailed into selling her to a family to be their slave. If you aren't already aware of how rampant human trafficking is this book will enlighten you.
