Cuisine to culture, ecology to economics, local to global, books expand our awareness and give us the tools for change.  Whether the books reviewed here are directly related to the tropics or not, they have been chosen for their power to nourish our bodies, expand our minds and elevate our spiritual wisdom.  Through empowering ourselves and others, we can create the change we wish to see.
It is up to us to heal and transform ourselves and our world.  As author and inspirational speaker, Gail Larsen, so wisely says, “If you want to change the world, tell a better story!”

Bite Size Desserts

Carole Bloom (Wiley, 2009)

Even when I’m so full I can barely move, I often crave a sweet to officially conclude a meal.  It doesn’t need to be much, perhaps two or three bites, or what my mother called a “cheek,” a subtle closure that compliments a cup of tea or espresso.

Mustard Seed Market and Cafe Natural Foods Cookbook

By Bev Shaffer

It’s always a pleasure to review books that tempt the palate or stretch the mind.  However,
there is a downside.  I do most of my reading in the evening, so if it’s compelling, I’ll stay
up much too late.  I refuse to even consider a novel as I end up “writing” in my sleep.
And then there are the culinary books.
