A cook. A speech therapist. A credit union executive. A fashion model-turned-cancer activist. A secretary. A homemaker -- all were mothers. Nineteen lives cut short -- women from all walks of life, hailing from every corner of the United States and a province in Canada. Some were homemakers with little or no formal education; others were career women with college degrees and accomplished resumes. Regardless of their backgrounds, all these women share one thing in common: an addiction to smoking that culminated in an array of illnesses and their untimely demise. Their stories, told by their surviving daughters, pay tribute to the mothers they lost, often at pivotal moments in the daughters' lives, and the legacy they continue to live with every day. A Breath Away offers a powerful anti-smoking message that goes beyond the statistics to today's generation of girls and young women, to think twice before lighting up.

The first canning manual and cookbook authored by a Michelin-starred chef and restaurant owner, The Preservation Kitchen reveals a world of endless flavor combinations using revolutionary ideas that bring homemade preserves deliciously to life. Pairing science with art, Paul Virant presents expert preserving techniques, sophisticated recipes, and seasonal menus inspired by the award-winning fare at his restaurant, Vie, in Western Springs, Illinois. Imaginative tangy jams, brandied fruits, zesty relishes, cured meats, and sweet and savory conserves are the focus of the first half of this book, while seasonal menus pairing these preserves with everything from salads and cocktails to poached fish and braised meat compose the second. Brandied Cherries used in Cherry Clafoutis, or as a garnish for the Beer-Jam Manhattan, are a sweet reminder of the summer harvest. And the Chicken Fried Steak with Smoked Spring Onion Relish anticipates warmer days when you’re still deep in winter. Alongside recipes and menus, Virant draws on his extensive technical knowledge and experience to provide detailed and comprehensive guidelines for safe canning practices, testing pH, pressure canning, water bath processing, and storing. But no matter how precise the science, Virant never forgets the art in each handcrafted preserve and thoughtfully developed recipe. His unique approach re-imagines seasonal eating by harmonizing opposite or unusual partnerships: the brightness of summer fruit may be tempered with the earthiness of meats and winter produce, or the delicacy of spring vegetables might be enriched by the robust herbs and spices more typical of fall. The Preservation Kitchen not only demonstrates and instructs, it encourages and explores the limitless possibilities of capturing the seasons in a jar.
