400 recipes that illustrate the versatility of the blender. One whole chapter is devoted just to baby food.
The recipes are simple to follow, cover a lot of ethnic territory and follow the blender's basic appeal: Throw stuff in, whirr and pour it out. Someone who's not so comfortable in the kitchen would find these recipes doable. (Bonnie S. Benwick Washington Post 2005)
The book is creative... A nice addition to anyone's cookbook collection and would assist blender owners everywhere. [A book] from Robert Rose that can help you entertain weekend guests, and add some fun into your everyday menus. This book isn't just a bible of drink recipes, it contains recipes for 100 soups sauces and marinades, 100 baby foods, 100 miscellaneous recipes, and 100 of the blender drink recipes contained in 400 Blender Cocktails. While most of the recipes are easy to make, the book tries too hard to cover too much ground (e.g. if you want a book of baby food recipes, mixing them into a book with drink recipes, seems a bit weird). And, some of the recipes, most notably for salad dressings, can mostly be mixed by hand, thereby avoiding the need to lug out a heavy blender, and then do the clean-up. But for a newlywed couple who has just received probably more than one blender, it does offer lots of creative ways to use this must-have household appliance. Tofu Eggnog or Cream of Kohlrabi soup, anyone? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

They two included books are CRUSADE and IN DEATH GROUND. Individual reviews appear below:
I am hooked on the Honor Harrington series. I have spent so much time reading them that, when I was done, I was disappointed because I had nothing else from Weber to read until the next one comes out. I forgot to check for some of his other works. I wouldn't have thought he would have time to write anything else. WRONG!
CRUSADE pits the human federation against a new alien species which considers itself saviors dedicated to saving Terra and humanity for the evil Orions who just happen to be uneasy allies of humanity. It takes a while to figure out how this strange turn of events came to be but, when it finally comes out, it makes sense. Religious zealots are at work promoting a jihad for personal advantage. Their only contact with humanity came at a time when it was at war against the Orions.
A major problem is that the Orions are a warrior culture and their alliance with humanity is an uneasy one. When the new aliens, the Thebans, are first encountered, it is the Orions they attack and they do so in the name of humanity. Resolving this is left up to humanity but the Orions are keeping a suspicious eye on the situation.
The battles are well thought out and fans of space battles will appreciate the book. Just as interesting are the political battles. For me, they are even more interesting to read. It's a good book worth the time.
IN DEATH GROUND
Humanity and its allies face a deadly enemy. That enemy is one so different that even communication is impossible with them. Only a few things are really known. They look like giant spiders. They attack without warning. They are very powerful. They eat most of their victims. The rest they raise as livestock for future consumption.
The naval commanders charged with protecting humanity, and later the rest of the alliance, face terrible choices with frightening consequences. They can't save everybody. That means that the ones who are not saved are going to be eaten. They realize that throwing themselves into battle anyway just increases the odds that all of the allies will lose. Before they can fight the big battle, they must fight rearguard actions and marshal their forces. Whatever they do, people are going to die, people are going to be eaten and the nightmares will come. This book and its sequel do the best job I have ever encountered of pointing out the pain that can come with major commands.
Its not a fun read but it is a good one. Its also a cliffhanger.
