Fifty Shades of Kale
By Drew Ramsey, M.D. and Jennifer Iserloh
Kale juice, crunch kale chips, kale Caesar salad on restaurant menus … kale is the new black! We got the last confirmation that people are indeed crazy for this cruciferous veggie when our local Latino grocer started selling the Tuscan variety alongside queso de Oaxaca and homemade tortillas.
Fifty Shades of Kale takes kale to lofty new heights via recipes that sneak it into anything from pizza and fajitas to chocolate dessert and Campari cocktails. Whether you are already one of its devotees or still need to embrace this shade of green, you will love the practical recipes including huevos rancheros; black bean soup with fresh lime; and mushroom and kale risotto; and might even be tempted by the kale Pisco Sour and The Lacchiato — yes, it’s a kale macchiato!

The Complete Guide to Naturally Gluten-Free Foods
By Olivia Dupin
Naturally Gluten-Free Foods approaches going gluten-free with enthusiasm. People who have to avoid this wheat protein for health reasons, not because it’s a trendy weight-loss approach, will be happy to find simple recipes for familiar foods which are, as the title promises, naturally sans gluten. So you won’t need obscure health food store ingredients or expensive, hard-to-find substitutions.
The book begins with the story of author Olivia Dupin’s own struggle with gluten intolerance and an explanation of celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. Several chapters offer practical information, including descriptions of symptoms, lists of foods to avoid and lists of naturally gluten-free foods, as well as suggestions for handling various tricky situations – from cravings to social awkwardness – and clarifications about terminology that kitchen beginners may not recognize.
