With fourteen chapters, ranging from savory soups and main course salads to creative side dishes and aromatic Mediterranean and Asian-inspired dishes, fat will not be missed in mouthwatering recipes like Guacamole with Asparagus, Chinese Orzo Vegetable Salad, Spring Vegetable Paella, Indian Potato Pancakes, and Creamy Dairyless Rice Pudding. Along with those creative dishes, there are also low-fat variations on familiar favorites such as Macaroni and Cheese, Shephard’s Pie, and Dark Chocolate Pudding. An added bonus: the Moosewood Collective has made sure that the ingredients used in the recipes throughout the book are easily found in most well-stocked supermarkets.

Along with nutritional and glossary guides that provide explanations of nutritional terms, instructions for how to glean the information you need from nutrition labels, a brief overview of vitamins and minerals, and guides to ingredients and cooking techniques, the Collective also offers tips and ideas for sustaining a low-fat lifestyle. They bake rather than fry, replace high-fat ingredients with healthy substitutes (no artificial ingredients allowed!), and use butter and oil very moderately, so that what is lost in fat is gained in bold, intense flavors.

Jeffrey Saad’s Global Kitchen: Recipes Without Borders ($0.99 Kindle), by Jeffrey Saad [Ballantine Book / Random House]

FLAVORS FROM AROUND THE WORLD. NO PASSPORT REQUIRED.

Cilantro and chili peppers are Mexican royalty. Oregano and basil have defined Italian foods for centuries. And nothing recalls the tastes of India more than cumin and coriander. Anything from a plain chicken breast to a fresh-from-the-ocean fillet can be transformed into dozens of different ethnic dishes, and chef Jeffrey Saad is just the person to show you how.

In his cookbook debut, Saad—restaurateur and star of the Cooking Channel’s United Tastes of America—takes you on an international tour to celebrate and savor the flavors of the globe without ever leaving your kitchen.

Journeying through popular culinary hotspots from France, Italy, and Spain to India, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East, Saad breaks down the core spices that define each region’s cuisine and showcases scrumptious recipes inspired by these global palates. In addition to salads, soups, and sandwiches, Jeffrey Saad’s Global Kitchen includes

  • tantalizing tapas, from Crustless Sweet Onion and Potato Spanish Tart to Crab Tostadas with Fire-Roasted Chiles and Wild Mushroom Bruschetta with Shaved Parmesan
  • healthful—and delicious—vegetarian dishes, including Butternut Squash and Allspice Risotto, White Bean Soup with Rosemary Pesto, and Sweet and Spicy Chinese Long Beans
  • a carnivore’s delight, including Smoked Paprika Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Beef Bourguignonne, Pork Chops with Carmelized Apples and Arugula, and Jeffrey’s signature Harissa Steak Sandwich (featured on The Next Food Network Star)
  • fish lovers’ fare, from Lobster Pot Pie and Grilled Tilapia in Spicy Asian Broth to Five-Spice Shrimp Sliders and Turmeric-Grilled Scallop Pitas
  • sinful desserts, including Almond-Orange-Chocolate Biscotti and Nutella Crepes
  • Plus—sections on extremely delicious tacos and burritos, the bodacious beauty (and versatility) of the egg, and a multitude of pasta pleasures—with mouthwatering color photos throughout

Written with Saad’s showstopping passion for food and seasoned with helpful sidebars and cooking essentials, this easy-to-use recipe guide is a melting pot of culinary wisdom. Whether you like savory or sweet, keeping it mild or kicking up the heat, Jeffrey Saad’s Global Kitchen shows you how to eat globally and cook locally with gourmet-quality results.

Anonymous Rex: A Detective Story ($0.99 Kindle), by Eric Garcia [Villard / Random House]

“What would the world be like if the dinosaurs hadn’t gone extinct? As this very funny book shows, for one thing, L.A. would be even weirder than it is now.” –Dave Barry

Vincent Rubio, a Los Angeles private investigator, is down on his luck: He’s out of work. His car’s been repossessed. His partner has died under mysterious circumstances. And his tail just won’t stay put. Vincent is a dinosaur–a Velociraptor, to be precise. It seems the dinosaurs faked their extinction 65 million years ago and still roam the earth, disguised in convincing latex costumes that help them blend perfectly into human society. A heightened sense of smell allows the dinos to detect one another–Vincent’s got an odor like a tasty Cuban cigar.

When Vincent is called to investigate a two-bit case of arson at a hip dino nightclub, he discovers something much more sinister, which lures him back to New York City–the scene of his partner’s death and a dangerous nexus of dinosaur and human intermingling.

Will Vincent solve the mystery of his partner’s death? Will a gorgeous blond chanteuse discover his true identity, jeopardizing both their lives? Will Vincent be able to conquer his dangerous addiction to basil, or will he wind up in Herba-holics Anonymous? Will he find true love, or resort to crumpled issues of Stegolicious?

Somewhere between Jurassic Park and L.A. Confidential lies Eric Garcia’s Anonymous Rex, one of the smartest, wittiest, and most entertaining debuts this side of the Ice Age.
