This beautiful book will have you falling in love with your rice cooker as you use it every day for perfect-every-time rice and an incredibly surprising range of other foods. Rice cookers are ideal for the way we cook today. They are versatile and convenient, with one-button operation and a conveniently small footprint on your kitchen counter—plus, they can be cleaned in a flash when you are done cooking. Rice cookers make foolproof rice and beans, of course; but, as Beth Hensperger shows in this collection of the 100 best recipes from her earlier Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook, they cook a whole lot more than you might have thought. Here are all sorts of grains beyond rice, including quinoa, millet, and couscous, as well as all the popular pulses and legumes. In these pages, you will also find custards, hot cereals, and puddings, which, it turns out, cook up like a dream in the rice cooker. For substantial meals, there are a host of tasty and easy-to-make risottos, pilafs, chilis, stews, and soups, some with meats and some vegetarian. Unlike the earlier book, this new book has beautiful color photos to inspire you, as you make a heartwarming Sweet Brown Rice with Curry, Carrots, and Raisins; a zippy Fiery Pineapple Rice with Cashews and Cilantro; or a comforting Millet, Squash, and Sweet Pea Pilaf. Never has such a humble and simple-to-use kitchen appliance seemed so powerful and full of promise.

"Juicing machines, and books about how to get the most from them, are selling in tremendous numbers. Best 100 Juices for Kids brings the juicing revolution home for everyone in the family--not just mom and dad. Jessica Fisher's imaginative and tasty recipes give parents terrific and super-nutritious alternatives both to cheap juices loaded with high fructose corn syrup, on one hand, and to healthy but very pricey store-bought gourmet juices on the other. For fruit- and vegetable-averse kids, they also offer a way to "sneak" produce into a kid's diet in a way that the child actually will enjoy. Older kids and teens, too, will have fun trying out the juicing machine in the kitchen, using these recipes as a starting point. Seventy of the 100 recipes are for juices, with about 45 fruit- based and 25 vegetable-based. Half of the remaining 30 are luscious and creamy smoothies, including several dairy-free vegan options. "Sparklies," which are club soda-based carbonated drinks, give parents great ways to replace artificially flavored soda pop, full of processed sugar, with homemade pop made with natural sweeteners. For the hot summer months, when kids are most likely to reach for sugary drinks, there are recipes for icy slushies and refreshing juice-based ice pops. Throughout, Fisher tested the recipes on both low-end and high-end juicers, and she provides expert guidance on how readers can get the best results from whatever model of machine they own"--
