This enchanting cookbook by Carol Callahan allows us to reverse time and transcend space in order to enter a period and place in American history when confidence abounded and all things seemed possible and some Chicago families were able to live in a manner never to be equaled. Judge for yourself. The thirty-five illustrations that accompany the text document what a grand life-style it was. "If you want to see the richest half-dozen blocks in Chicago. . . drive down Prairie Avenue from Sixteenth Street to Twenty-second. Right there is a cluster of millionaires not to be matched for numbers anywhere else in the country." —Chicago Herald, 1887 And the Herald wasn’t guilty of braggadocio. Prairie Avenue was home to such august individuals as Marshall Field, George Pullman, Philip Armour, Gustavus Swift, William Kimball, Samuel Allerton, Joseph Sears, and John Glessner. Among the delights they enjoyed were the joys of the table—the recipes for which, preserved by family members, are shared here for the first time. Carol Callahan makes it possible to taste the flavors of that opulent era with a collection of more than two hundred historic recipes from the prominent nineteenth-century families of Prairie Avenue. All of the recipes have been tested and modernized for today’s cook. They range from everything you might like for breakfast to however you’d like your oysters to snacks, soups, salads, entrées, preserves, desserts, and some power-packed Prairie Avenue party punches. To place these dishes in their proper context, Callahan includes family anecdotes gathered through oral history interviews that encompass food, meals, health, and entertainment as well as other aspects of nineteenth-century Chicago life. Callahan devotes part of the book to discussions of the foods available to Prairie Avenue residents, the impact of the rapidly changing technology on cooking, the fine art of dining, the ritual of calling, the problems and pleasures of servants in the household, the children of Prairie Avenue, and the effect of the 1893 World’s Colombian Exposition on Chicago. Whether you elect to prepare these Victorian delights or simply savor them in your imagination, the Prairie Avenue Cookbook is sumptuous fare.

Members of Mark Callahan’s old military unit are being murdered. To discover who’s responsible and why, the former intelligence officer must partner with the only team member more dangerous than he is…Annabelle Monroe, his ex-wife. Now a private investigator, Annabelle would rather trade her pistol for a slingshot than work with Mark again. But a shattered heart is no excuse to avoid a reunion when lives are at stake. Together, she and Mark go hunting a killer. Long days and steamy nights make it impossible to deny the desire still burning between them, but the reasons for their messy breakup haven’t changed. The bravest man she has ever known is still afraid to risk his heart. But when the killer’s trail leads to Brazos Bend and everything Mark holds dear is at stake, will he finally take the leap? Or will it be too late?

New York Times bestselling author Emily March brings her "unique charm and delightful sense of humor" (Romantic Times) to heat up the Scottish highlands in this laugh-out-loud sequel to her delicious Simmer All Night. She needs a ghost, not a groom... Of all the castles in all of Scotland, it's Gillian Ross's bad luck to live in one that isn't haunted. The ancestral home must be sold, but the single interested buyer requires a wraith in the rafters. With her family in danger, Gillian will do anything to protect them, so she dons a disguise and sets out to haunt her home herself. Her plan might have worked, had her first tantalizing target not revealed more than she bargained for... He'd rather be dead than wed. Handsome as the devil but with a scoundrel's heart, Jake Delaney has come to Rowanclere Castle to locate a missing historical treasure, not a wife. When a gorgeous "ghost" visits his bedchamber, his curiosity--among other things--is aroused. Unaware that his probing might lead to both mayhem and marriage, he vows to discover her secrets before leaving the Highlands. His plan might have worked, too, had he not been haunted by visions of a seductive Scottish sprite and the dream that man's castle could somehow become his home.
