Kitchen Junk - Word Tracks Studio

America's triumphant Queen of Junk homes in on where the heart dwells--in the kitchen--with vintage treasures that add spice to life and cost next to nothing

In the effervescent yet practical style of her American Junk and Garden Junk, Mary Randolph Carter tracks down and rescues kitchen gems everywhere from thrift shops to tag sales to country auctions. Kitchens are often the source of our earliest memories--eating oatmeal before school, lingering over a cup of hot chocolate. If the kitchen is old, with appliances that challenge decorative instincts, or characterless and crying out for touches of nostalgia (old Tupperware is more and more in demand), the answers lie in Kitchen Junk.

From the era of "good housekeeping" come bib aprons and blue feather dusters, wooden ironing boards and handcrafted scrub brushes. Dinette sets, gingham notepads and oilcloth picked up coast to coast for $2 to 10 cents...vintage cookbooks and old milk bottles...a porcelain-enamel table top and sentimental kitchen samplers...midcentury calico roosters and white granite-ware pitchers a hundred years old but timeless...the stoves, toasters, and clocks of yesteryearall contribute to the author's signature arrangements and inspire readers to create their own. Before and after photographs, prices, and hints on junk hunting and haggling mingle with tips on cleaning old linens, avoiding rust on baking pans, and much more. With an extensive Junk Guide that lists flea markets and other "junking sites" countrywide, Kitchen Junk is the reference for thrifty, evocative, eclectic furnishing of the hub of the house.

Kitchen Things - An Album of Vintage Utensils and Farm-Kitchen Recipes

Each object, and each recipe, tells a story of discovery from the land of the everyday, common things that surround us.

Many home cooks—and professionals, as well—swear by the tried-and-true implements they’ve used for years: the Foley Food Mill that works like a charm every time; the manually operated juicer that’s a tradition of family breakfasts; the cast iron skillet that’s been handed down through the generations. For serious cooks, there’s nothing like a familiar implement, a thing that works exactly as you expect it to.

Similarly, most people usually have a library of favorite recipes on which they rely: some passed along from relatives and friends, others from mentors and teachers. These are the recipes cooks return to time and time again, in part because they evoke memories of the people who have enjoyed them and prepared them in the past.

Kitchen Things, by master photographer and respected novelist Richard Snodgrass, celebrates these well-loved objects and recipes and showcases them in an unexpected way—a way that touches upon the science of food, the physics of cooking, the sensory pleasures of eating, and indeed the very nature of life itself.

In his reflections, the author is aided by his patient, persistent, and very perceptive wife, Marty, and her mother, from whose Western Pennsylvania farmhouse kitchens the objects and recipes were sourced. The gentle, often humorous repartee between the author and these wise and knowing women forms a running narrative throughout the book. 158 color and b/w photographs

Pressure Cooker Perfection

What s the most important trend in cooking in the last 50 years? No, it s not organic farming or the globalization of American cooking. The biggest change in how we cook is speed. Americans want to spend less time cooking.

Enter the modern pressure cooker, which can cook foods in one-third to one-half of their normal cooking time. In addition to being easy to use and fast, pressure cookers ensure maximum flavor, and they use a fraction of the electricity or gas required for conventional stovetop cooking. Today s pressure cookers are safer, quieter, and easier to use than the old-fashioned models your grandmother used to use. But still, many home cooks are hesitant to give this unfamiliar appliance a chance. With Pressure Cooker Perfection, the first in the America s Test Kitchen new line of essential single-topic handbooks, our editors and test cooks prove through in-depth research and testing that there s nothing to fear and much to gain with today s pressure cookers.

Pressure Cooker Perfection is more than a cookbook, it s a guide. The in-depth Pressure Cooker 101 informs home cooks about everything they need to know regarding buying, using, and caring for a pressure cooker. Beyond outlining each step of cooking under pressure, this section also demonstrates key test kitchen techniques discovered over the course of our recipe development. Our detailed testing of 12 models, both stovetop and electric, ensures home cooks know what to look for when they go to purchase a pressure cooker, while the safety and care section ensures users know how to keep their appliance working in top form, and working safely, for years to come.

Thorough charts give instructions for cooking rice, grains, beans, and vegetables, while 61 essential recipes cover stews and chilis, roasts, fancy dinners, barbecue classics, one-pot pastas, and side dishes. Every recipe is accompanied by troubleshooting tips, and most are also accompanied by full-color step photography that walks cooks through the test kitchen process.
With the test kitchen as their partner in the kitchen, home cooks can feel confident using a pressure cooker every step of the way.

Slow Cooker Revolution

Who doesn't like the idea of throwing ingredients into a slow cooker and coming back hours later to a finished meal? Too bad most slow cooker recipes deliver mediocre results you'd rather forget than fix again. A team of ten test cooks at America's Test Kitchen spent a year developing recipes, and what they discovered will change the way you use your slow cooker.

Did you know that onions garlic, and spices should be bloomed in the microwave for five minutes before they go into the slow cooker? This simple step intensifies their flavor and requires no extra work. Did you know that a little soy sauce mixed with tomato paste adds meaty flavors to almost any stew and can often replace the tedious step of browning the meat? And do you know the secret to a moist slow-cooker chicken? Start the bird upside down to protect the delicate white meat from drying out.

The 200 recipes in this family-friendly collection deliver a revolution in slow cooking like only America's Test Kitchen can!

The 1950s Kitchen-Shire Library

The 1950s was the first great age of the modern kitchen: labor-saving appliances, bright colors and the novelty of fitted units moved the kitchen from dankness into light, where it became the domain of the happy housewife and the heart of the home. Formica - a new space-age material - decorated with fashionable patterns topped sleek cupboards that contained new classic wares such as Pyrex and 'Homemaker' crockery, and the ingredients for 1950s British staples: semolina, coronation chicken and spotted dick.

Electricity entered the kitchens of millions, and nowhere in the home was modern technology and modern design more evident. Bold color, clean lines and stainless steel were keynotes of the decade, and it is no surprise that 1950s kitchen style is now the height of fashion once again, with names like Cath Kidston picking up on the best of '50s kitchen kitsch, and manufacturers like Dualit, Kitchen Aid and Aga doing healthy business with retro appliances.

This book - a celebration of cooking, eating and living in the 1950s kitchen - is a feast of nostalgia, and a mine of inspiration for anyone wanting to recreate that '50s look in their own home.
