“The latest offering from author Ruth Harris (HUSBANDS AND LOVERS, LOVE AND MONEY) recounts the trials of the feminist trenches as each recovers from the earth-shattering assassination of President Kennedy and regroups to wage her individual battle against gender injustice.

“There’s brash, bawdy Jane Gresch, who happens to be on the press bus in the presidential motorcade when the fatal shots are fired in Dallas’ Dealy Plaza. When her date, journalist Owen Casals, steals Jane’s ideas and manhandles her affections, she becomes a ticking time bomb of self-destructive impulses.

“Elly McGrath, the other woman in Owen’s life, is a flat chested activist who has stumbled from one disastrous relationship to another. Her decade-long devotion to Owen Casals finally leads to marriage, but her problems are far from over.

“Lincky Desmond comes to her feminist awakening the hard way. Her parents die in a plane crash, the family business is sold out from under her, and her “perfect” first marriage to the doting, adorable Peter ends in predictable disaster.

“The three women eventually find fulfillment and each other in the publishing world. Jane writes about what she knows, sex, and becomes a wildly successful author. Elly parlays her talents into a key slot in the publicity department at North Star, a top publishing house, where she is assigned to trumpet Jane’s roman a clef about her own husband, Owen. Lincky, who has become North Star’s president, has the courage to handle Jane’s book, which others consider too hot to hawk.”–The Cleveland Plain-Dealer

30 Perfect Popcorn Recipes : How to Make Sweet & Savory Gourmet Popcorn at Home
by Lori Jane Stewart

Popcorn has probably been around longer than any other snack food on the planet. It has a rich history, dating back to before civilization and taking part in a multitude of events we celebrate every year. It’s the most popular snack food around the world, and the second most popular snack in America (falling just behind potato chips). Popcorn can be found all over the country, at movie theaters, carnivals, and most people’s kitchens or pantries.

It is a common misconception that popcorn is an unhealthy snack. The reason some people avoid popcorn is because they don’t understand the real culprit! Behind its supposedly unhealthy status, are the seasonings and additives, often added to commercially packaged products to liven up the bland natural flavor and to lengthen it’s shelf life. The popcorn itself is a wholegrain, and these can help prevent cancer and lower the risk of heart disease, while also supplying healthy nutrients that support our vision.

Enough of the history, what about the recipes? I’ve gathered 30 of the finest popcorn recipes from around the world for your snacking pleasure, and have tried to keep them free from artificial sweeteners, preservatives or other nasty additives wherever possible. I’ve specified 9 cups of popped corn for most recipes, as that gives 3 generous cups per serving – you can have as many or as few servings as you fancy, but keep an eye on the calories! For your convenience, I’ve also included nutritional data from the USDA for each recipe (that’s the U.S. Department of Agriculture and not the United Square Dancers of America!)

My preference for both flavor and health reasons, is freshly air-popped popcorn – so I have used that kind for all of these recipes. Everything in this book can be made with kernels you have freshly popped, or if you are in a hurry (or feeling lazy!), then you can always use the plain store bought pre-popped variety – just make sure you check the packaging for artificial nasties!

Most of the ingredients for these recipes can be found at your local grocery store or deli, but if you get stuck, then the slightly more unusual ones can also be bought online via a link at the end of the book.
