Sitto's Kitchen includes the original recipes and memories carried by the author's grandmother onto the shores of Ellis Island in 1912. These treasures, taught to her grandmother in Aleppo, Syria, comprise over 100 years of traditional Arab cooking. Author Janice Jweid Reed remembers, "In 1966, I started compiling my grandmother's recipes in a little spiral notebook. Years later, as my worn and food-stained notebook captured the fruits of my own labors, I realized these recipes were too precious to lose. They're a testament to all those cooks before me who faithfully preserved their heritage, mother to daughter, through the generations." Over the years, knowing these time-honored dishes were an important part of her cultural heritage, the author's notebook led to this cookbook. Sitto's Kitchen guides the reader with a Basics chapter offering tips on pantry staples, cook's tools and the ingredients needed to create this delicious cuisine. Recipe titles written in both English and Arabic, a Where to Buy It section and photos of many of the dishes are all included with today's cooks in mind. The author carefully describes techniques used long ago but has simplified and updated them. Young cooks or those new to this distinctive cuisine will find the cook's notes at the end of each recipe a helpful and contemporary touch. Charming stories and anecdotes will give readers a window into the past. Culinary delights, from an Aleppo breakfast of butter-soft turnovers to after-dinner Arab coffee and sweets, highlight this unique cuisine. Tantalizing Open Meat Pies, Tamarind Meatballs, aromatic Barley Pilaf and Syrian Stuffing are mouth watering. Phyllo-encrusted Spinach Rolls, healthy soups, salads and grains, including several Bulgar Wheat dishes, will appeal to vegetarians. The next generations of young Arab cooks who long for these traditional foods will be drawn into Sitto's Kitchen. Readers exploring new cuisines will find these Middle Eastern spices and fragrant herbs carrying them to ancient lands. Sitto's Kitchen is a homespun adventure in Middle Eastern cookery, simply prepared, with no mystery and traditionally preserved by generations of Syrian cooks who served these humble dishes to their families with love.

In addition to the delicious meat and chicken dishes, Lebanese cuisine offers a wide variety of vegetarian, pescatarian, vegan, and gluten-free dishes, usually with no substitutions whatsoever! Every chapter includes a multitude of dishes for eaters of all kinds and preferences, from meat-lovers to veggie-heads and everything in between.

“This imaginative but very real look into war-torn Syria is a must.” –Booklist (starred review) This rich, moving, and lyrical debut novel is to Syria what The Kite Runner was to Afghanistan; the story of two girls living eight hundred years apart—a modern-day Syrian refugee seeking safety and a medieval adventurer apprenticed to a legendary mapmaker—places today’s headlines in the sweep of history, where the pain of exile and the triumph of courage echo again and again. In the summer of 2011, just after Nour loses her father to cancer, her mother moves Nour and her sisters from New York City back to Syria to be closer to their family. In order to keep her father’s spirit as she adjusts to her new home, Nour tells herself their favorite story—the tale of Rawiya, a twelfth-century girl who disguised herself as a boy in order to apprentice herself to a famous mapmaker. But the Syria Nour’s parents knew is changing, and it isn’t long before the war reaches their quiet Homs neighborhood. When a stray shell destroys Nour’s house and almost takes her life, she and her family are forced to choose: stay and risk more violence or flee across seven countries of the Middle East and North Africa in search of safety—along the very route Rawiya and her mapmaker took eight hundred years before in their quest to chart the world. As Nour’s family decides to take the risk, their journey becomes more and more dangerous, until they face a choice that could mean the family will be separated forever. Following alternating timelines and a pair of unforgettable heroines coming of age in perilous times, The Map of Salt and Stars is the epic story of one girl telling herself the legend of another and learning that, if you listen to your own voice, some things can never be lost.

In recent years, Lebanese cuisine has become extremely familiar in Western countries. The traditional dishes of the Middle East are internationally renowned. The most popular foods, such as yoghurt (laban), Kibbee balls, tabouleh, baklawa, grape leaf rools, pita bread (kimaj), chick-pea dip (hummus), and many more, are available as take-outs from restaurants, deli counters in supermarkets, and Middle Eastern or Greek speciality food stores. Progress has allowed us to purchase ingredients in jars, cans, or boxes for immediate use. This eliminates many of the tedious tasks of preparation our mothers and grandmothers had before. Cooking is Janet's passion. With a heartfelt 'Ahlan Wa Sahlan', she welcomes her guests and makes them feel comfortable and relaxed. She especially loves to share her Lebanese heritage through her cooking. It's a toss-up who has the most enjoyment, the cook or the guests.

Poverty in the Roman World

If poor individuals have always been with us, societies have not always seen the poor as a distinct social group. But within the Roman world, from at least the Late Republic onwards, the poor were an important force in social and political life and how to treat the poor was a topic of philosophical as well as political discussion. This book explains what poverty meant in antiquity, and why the poor came to be an important group in the Roman world, and it explores the issues which poverty and the poor raised for Roman society and for Roman writers. In essays which range widely in space and time across the whole Roman Empire, the contributors address both the reality and the representation of poverty, and examine the impact which Christianity had upon attitudes towards and treatment of the poor.

Rarely does a book come along that so succinctly explains the decline of modern culture, articulates a defense of the Church's teachings, and offers a hope-filled path for building a civilization grounded in Catholic truth. In these pages, Dr. Ryan Topping does all three, pulling back the curtain on the false philosophies of the secularists and showing that in the West today the most formidable threat to freedom is not failing economies or Islam, but secularism. Our best defense, he claims, is a vibrant Catholic culture, and our best hope for creating it lies in the principles found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This book takes you on a masterful journey through the relevant portions of the Catechism, distilling sophisticated theological concepts into words that are simple, clear, and direct, while unpacking its core teachings on faith and morals that nurture true civilizations. In Rebuilding Catholic Culture, you'll also discover sensible ways to begin restoring Catholic culture -- right now -- in your own life and family, and in our larger communities as well: in the theater, the classroom, in our hospitals, and even in the public square. This profoundly accessible book will renew your confidence in the world-transforming character of our Creed and in the potency of our Faith to shape and redefine the culture of the West.

The Priest Is Not His Own

Continue Reading →

The beloved Archbishop Sheen, whose cause for canonization is open in Rome, presents a profound and deeply spiritual look at the meaning of the priesthood and relationship of the priest with Christ as an "alter Christus". Sheen delves deeply into what he considers the main character of the priesthood, and one not often discussed, that of being, like Christ, a "holy victim". To be like Christ, Sheen emphasizes that the priest must imitate Christ in His example of sacrifice, offering himself as a victim to make His Incarnation continually present in the world. "Unlike anyone else, Our Lord came on earth, not to live, but to die. Death for our redemption was the goal of His sojourn here, the gold that he was seeking. He was, therefore, not primarily a teacher, but a Savior. Was not Christ the Priest a Victim? He never offered anything except Himself. So we have a mutilated concept of our priesthood, if we envisage it apart from making ourselves victims in the prolongation of His Incarnation." —Bishop Fulton Sheen
