Five Cookbooks every cook should own! – Part 2

All You Can Books, top picks for cooking books

“Cooking is like painting or writing a song. Just as there are only so many notes or colors, there are only so many flavors—it’s how you combine them that sets you apart.”
– Wolfgang Puck

Let us look at the top picks by All You Can Books:

Twenty-Five Cent Dinners for Families of Six by Juliet Corson

Twenty-Five Cent Dinners for Families of Six | Juliet Corson

Now available in E-books and Audiobook version.

Juliet Corson has put together a few books on economic housekeeping, and this is a fine example. Almost 150 years after publication (1878), it has become quite impossible to feed anyone on 25 cents, but the principles on how to cook economically have not changed much. In any case, modern readers can still enjoy the recipes Ms. Corson has compiled, and learn from her introductory notes.

A Little Cook Book for a Little Girl by Caroline French Benton

A Little Cook Book for a Little Girl | Caroline French Benton

A Little Book for A Little Cook by L. P. Hubbard

A Little Book for A Little Cook | L. P. Hubbard

This charming little book compiles together a number of recipes, set out in an easy-to-understand manner, along with a poetic story about the stages of bread production. This book was produced as a promotional for a flour production company called Pillsbury. This is a “modern” update compared to the original edition of the book. This version has exact oven temperature settings for each recipe included in a preface for the book, along with more precise suggestions for the baking time. The book has been written for children, however, I am certain that adults could enjoy the book equally as much as a child would.

Marion Harland’s Cookery For Beginners by Marion Harland

Marion Harland's Cookery For Beginners | Marion Harland

Now available in E-book and Audiobook version.

With this book, Marion Harland presents the reader and listener with “A Series of Familiar Lessons for Young Housekeepers”.

Cooking can be great fun, and for those beginners in the art of cookery among us, the 14 lessons of Ms Harland are a very good beginning.

The Cooking Manual by Juliet Corson

The Cooking Manual | Juliet Corson

Now available in E-book and Audiobook version.

Food is one of the necessities but also one of the greatest pleasures. Knowing how to cook a good meal is therefore extremely important for all of us. Maybe you can find some inspiration for tonight’s dinner in this 1877 cook book by Juliet Corson.

Best Religion E-Books & Audiobooks

All You Can Books: Christian E-books & Audiobooks

2020 has been an odd and unsettling year — perhaps the oddest and most unsettling in our lifetimes.

Let us find some faith from these books to help us to move forward in life.

As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.

Now remain in my love

John 15:9
On Loving God by Saint Bernard of Clairvaux
On Loving God | Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

On Loving God is one of the best-known and most influential works of Medieval Christian mysticism. Written at the request of one of the cardinals of Rome, it describes the four “levels” of love for God, and puts Christian devotion in the context of God’s love for mankind.

Available in Audiobook.

Divine Healing by Andrew Murray
Divine Healing | Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray’s practical and devotional writings on the Bible have been a help and blessing to Christian believers. In this powerfully written book, Murray takes up the subject of healing as revealed in Scripture, showing how the work of Jesus Christ embraces not only pardon for sin but also healing from sickness.

Available in Audiobook.

The Holiest of All by Andrew Murray

The Holiest of All | Andrew Murray

The Holiest of All” is a devotional exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews. Its pages lead the reader into a practical understanding of who Christ is, the power of his finished work on the Cross, and his present intercession for believers. The author demonstrates how it is only a full understanding of who Jesus is and what he does for us that can bring us into a full and complete Christian life.

Available in Audiobook.

A Household Gospel by Mathew B. Sims
A Household Gospel | Mathew B. Sims

In Scripture, parents are instructed to teach their kids how to love God and saturate their home with the gospel (Deut 4:9, 6:1-7; Eph 6:104). Husbands and wives are commanded to mirror Jesus in their marriages (Eph 5:22-33). We understand these commands in light of the gospel—in light of Jesus Christ (2 Cor 4:6). Jesus is the hero of our families.

That’s what A Household Gospel is about. It’s ordinary means rooted in an extraordinary gospel. It’s about starting the great commission in our homes. It’s about rehearsing the gospel story when we sit to eat, lie down to sleep, rise up in the morning, and everywhere in between.

Available in Audiobook and E-book.

The Pursuit of God by A. W. Tozer
The Pursuit of God | A. W. Tozer

Available in E-book and Audiobook Format.

“As the heart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.” This thirst for an intimate relationship with God, claims A.W. Tozer, is not for a select few, but should be the experience of every follower of Christ. But, he asserts, it is all too rare when believers have become conditioned by tradition to accept standards of mediocrity, and the church struggles with formality and worldliness. Using examples from Scripture and from the lives of saints who lived with this thirst for God, Tozer sheds light on the path to a closer walk with God.

TOP 5 Crime and Mystery Novels on All You Can Books:

Murder at Bridge by Anne Austin

Murder at Bridge | Anne Austin

Inhabitants of the small town of Hamilton joke that they are afraid of being the dummy when playing Bridge, for fear of being murdered.

The Fall River Tragedy by Edwin H. Porter

The Fall River Tragedy | Edwin H. Porter

This is a True Story!!

The story of how Lizzie Borden supposedly murdered her parents has passed into American folklore, partly thanks to the albeit inaccurate playground rhyme, “Lizzie Borden took an axe, and gave her mother 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41.”

Here we have the ‘true’ story, as reported by the local police reporter who attended the trial and lived only streets away from the Borden home with his young wife. After the trial, Porter ‘disappeared’ and it was widely speculated he had either been murdered or bribed to disappear in order to suppress the book.

His reappearance some time later put paid to the first theory. After his death at age 39 from tuberculosis, a new theory emerged, that he had been away for treatment while keeping his illness secret.

Meanwhile, the trial itself was noteworthy for several reasons: it was one of the first to be followed by the nationwide press, providing a template for today’s tabloid and cable coverage of major trials; it also had some distinguished personnel: one of the prosecutors, Frank Moody, later became the attorney general of the United States and was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Theodore Roosevelt; and Borden’s defense attorney, George Robinson, was the former governor of Massachusetts. The appearance of Professor Wood of Harvard University was an early use of an expert witness at trial.

The Clue by Carolyn Wells

The Clue | Carolyn Wells

On the eve of her wedding day, Madeleine Van Norman, a beautiful young lady who is soon to come into her family fortune is found dead, apparently stabbed with an ominous blood-stained letter opener found nearby. There is nobody within the household who is not considered a suspect by the police, but how could a killer have slipped through the doors of Madeleine’s locked bedroom? It must have been suicide, as a note was found lying on a table near her body. Or was it? An intriguing mystery ensues which hinges on the discovery of a single, all-important clue.

Uncle Silas by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

Uncle Silas | Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

Uncle Silas is a Victorian Gothic mystery/thriller novel by the Anglo-Irish writer J. Sheridan Le Fanu. It is notable as one of the earliest examples of the locked room mystery subgenre. It is not a novel of the supernatural (despite a few creepily ambiguous touches), but does show a strong interest in the occult and in the ideas of Swedenborg. (Summary by Wikipedia)

Want a fun new read to dive into? Well, you’re in luck! We’ve got you covered with everything from classic to contemporary titles. Consider this the ultimate comedy booklist with something for everyone. 

This Is the End by Stella Benson

This Is the End | Stella Benson
It is the story of a Family halfheartedly searching for a missing relation who does not want to be found, while just off-stage, World War I is raging on the continent. It is a story about ordinary people trying to live ordinary lives in extraordinary times. The things they do are less important than the ways in which they do them: often comic, occasionally tragic, but always touching and true to life. It reminds us that Poetry and Romance can be found anywhere, hidden beneath the surface of the most commonplace things.

A Tale of a Tub by Jonathan Swift

A Tale of a Tub | Jonathan Swift

The Tale is a prose parody that is divided into sections of “digression” and a “tale” of three brothers, each representing one of the main branches of western Christianity. A Tale was long regarded as a satire on religion itself and has famously been attacked for that, starting with William Wotton. The “tale” presents a consistent satire of religious excess, while the digressions are a series of parodies of contemporary writing in literature, politics, theology, Biblical exegesis, and medicine. The overarching parody is of enthusiasm, pride, and credulity.

Sections of the work: How she is written by the Inaccurate, By Advertisers and on Sign-boards, For Epitaphs, By Correspondents, By the Effusive, How she can be oddly written and By the Untutored.

Top Scary Books

All You Can Books Horror Collection

Who doesn’t love a good scary story, something to send a chill across your skin in the middle of fall — or really, any other time?

The definition of scary changes from person to person. For some, it might be ghosts and haunted houses. For others, serial killers. For still others, the most frightening things are the ones that go bump in the night, unseen.

Despite the width of this spectrum, what unites all lovers of horror is the thrill that horror novels inspire within us: that universal sensation of your heart thumping out of your chest, as cold sweat breaks on your forehead when you turn the page.

Check out our top picks for Scary/Horror Books:

Uncle Silas by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

Uncle Silas | Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

Uncle Silas is a Victorian Gothic mystery/thriller novel by the Anglo-Irish writer J. Sheridan Le Fanu. It is notable as one of the earliest examples of the locked room mystery subgenre.

The Return Of The Soul by Robert Smythe Hichens

The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allan Poe

The Fall of the House of Usher | Edgar Allan Poe

The Narrator is summoned to the remote mansion of his boyhood friend, Roderick Usher. The Narrator reunites with his old companion, who is suffering from a strange mental illness and whose sister Madeline is near death due to a mysterious disease. The Narrator provides company to Usher while he paints and plays guitar, spending all his days inside, avoiding the sunlight and obsessing over the sentience of the non-living. When Madeline dies, Usher decides to bury her temporarily in one of his house’s large vaults. A few days later, however, she emerges from her provisional tomb, killing her brother while the Narrator flees for his life. The House of Usher splits apart and collapses, wiping away the last remnants of the ancient family.

Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

Frankenstein | Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is a novel written by the British author Mary Shelley. Shelley wrote the novel when she was 18 years old. The title of the novel refers to the scientist, Victor Frankenstein, who learns how to create life and creates a being in the likeness of man, but larger than average and more powerful. In modern popular culture, people have tended to refer to the Creature as “Frankenstein”, despite this being the name of the scientist, and the creature being unnamed in the book itself. Frankenstein is a novel infused with elements of the Gothic novel and the Romantic movement. It was also a warning against the “over-reaching” of modern man and the Industrial Revolution, alluded to in the novel’s subtitle, The Modern Prometheus. The story has had an influence across literature and popular culture and spawned a complete genre of horror stories and films. It is arguably considered the first fully realized science fiction novel. The novel raises many issues that can be linked to today’s society.

Ghosts of Koa – Volume 1 by Colby R Rice

Ghosts of Koa - Volume 1 | Colby R Rice

For over one hundred years the Civic Order and the Alchemic Order have held a shaky truce, peppered by violence and mistrust. But when Koa, a Civilian-born insurgency, bombs an Alchemist summit, the truce is shattered. Now, Koa is rising. War is coming. And all sixteen-year-old Zeika Anon can do is keep moving as she watches the lords of alchemy slowly overtake her home.

But when clashes between Koa and the Alchemic Order put a final, deadly squeeze on the remaining Civilian territories, Zeika finds herself in the crosshairs of fate. She must walk the line between survival and rebellion against the Alchemists. On one side of the line awaits death. On the other, the betrayal of her civilization, her loyalties, and herself.

The first volume in THE BOOKS OF EZEKIEL series, GHOSTS OF KOA is a fast-paced, post-apocalyptic survival tale, set in the streets of a dying city that has been crushed by alchemic law. Layered with the elements of gritty crime drama, dark urban fantasy, hard sci-fi, and horror, GHOSTS OF KOA is a wild ride to the end of a young girl’s sanity as she struggles with an impossible choice: to keep one step ahead of a war… or to be consumed by it.

Recommended for fans of Stephen King, Clive Barker, Dean Koontz, Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Divergent by Veronica Roth.
