Melissa s Southern Cookbook  Tried and True Family Recipes

The long-awaited cookbook from an immensely popular cooking blog. Melissa Sperka learned to cook, like many people, from her mother and her grandmothers. For generations, her family made gathering around the kitchen table for meals an important part of every day—something to look forward to and cherish. She’s passing these values on to her own children, and to the many readers of her blog, Melissa’s Southern Style Kitchen. Sperka’s grandparents lived on the food they grew and harvested on their Virginia farmland. Her mother continued this tradition as her mother did before her, canning, freezing, and cooking fresh produce from her backyard garden. Everyone was welcome at the supper table: family, neighbors, and friends alike. Pull up a chair, encourages Sperka, and become inspired to cook with recipes such as these: Puff Pastry-Wrapped Smokies Sweet-Tomato Glazed Meat Loaf Cheesy Bacon Ranch Chicken Spaghetti Granma's Famous Blueberry Icebox Pie Jalapeno Jepper Jack Corn Bread This cookbook is a labor of love, paying homage to those who instilled in her a love for cooking and baking Southern-style.

The Land of Weddings and Rain

In The Land of Weddings and Rain, Gediminas Lankauskas examines the components of the contemporary urban wedding – religious and civil ceremonies, “traditional” imagery and practices, and the conspicuous consumption of domestic and imported goods – in the context of the Western-style modernization of post-socialist Lithuania. Studying the tensions between “tradition” and “modernity” that surround this important ritual event, Lankauskas highlights the ways in which nationalism serves to negotiate the impact of modernity in the aftermath of state socialism’s collapse. His analysis also shows the importance of consumption and commodification to Lithuania’s ongoing “Westernization.” Based on more than a decade of ethnographic research, The Land of Weddings and Rain is a fascinating account of the tensions – between national and transnational, East and West, and old and new – that shape life in post-socialist Eastern Europe.
