Start with Caffeine Basics, an online book I wrote to cover the fundamentals of caffeine. Caffeine came without instructions. THIS is the missing manual.
The blog spotlights caffeine as it happens: updates, products, recipes, fun, research, science, medicine, practical news you can use. Spiced with commentary and opinion.
Coffee, tea and chocolate taste good (duh!). Eat and drink up in Recipes.
You're the star here: Chime in! Post comments, ask questions, stir up a conversation. Get buzzed at CaffeineAndYou.com.
This...cookbook includes preparation tips ("no soggy bottoms!") and fifty recipes, including versions with chickpeas and chutney; Portuguese sausage and artichoke hearts; Thai red curry paste and peanut sauce; and caviar, cream cheese, and chives. The author, who grew up in Texas, notes that the French "would probably utter 'Sacrebleu!' to see a majestic monastery cheese such as Pont-l'Eveque or a delicately nutty Gruyere de Comte adorn a nacho. But don't let that stop you." —The Texas Monthly
"...when it comes to the green kitchen Kate Heyhoe is really the Green Goddess. A dynamic combination of Michael Pollan, Alton Brown, and Wonder Woman all rolled into one. After finishing this book you will definitely be convinced that you can help save the planet while preparing dinner every night." —Heather Jones, ProjectFoodie.Com, July 9, 2009

"A Chicken In Every Pot belongs in every kitchen! This cook's tour of international chicken dishes offers innovative recipes and cooking tips galore. I love Kate's FlavorPrints, scattered throughout the book, with insights into the ingredients, seasonings, and techniques that give each cuisine its distinguishing character. With these globe-trotting recipes, I could enjoy a pot of chicken every night." —James McNair, author of the bestselling Chicken and thirty-nine other cookbook titles
A Good Cook Book Club Selection for April 2004.
"Harvesting the Dream by Kate Heyhoe and Stanley Hock is that rare book: It exceeds the high promise of its title. Its chapters, insightful quotes and interviews, and independent commentary cultivate and harvest the exceptional story of Sutter Home Winery and the remarkable Trinchero family. The authors substitute puffery and spin with frankness and candor that are most refreshing, reflecting the family's honest appraisals and realistic view of the world. All the chapters, especially Part III, are a must read for those who wish to understand the present and future dynamics of the globalization of the world of wine." —John DeLuca, Executive Vice Chairman, Wine Institute
This slim cookbook is a testament to the gritty charm of barbecue legend Christopher "Stubb" Stubblefield, who opened a 'cue joint in Lubbock, Tex. in 1968. After a few years enjoying Stubb's restaurant, the chef's pals convinced him to bottle his barbecue sauce, and the recipes in this volume make ample use of Stubb's bottled brews, from the soulful Slow Cooked Rosemary-Garlic Pot Roast to the finger-licking Wicked Chimichurri Wings...From appetizers to entrees to sides and salads, almost every tasty-looking recipe begs to be tried; overindulgers can repent, however, by skipping the lackluster desserts, which include a Pecan Pie so sweet it makes even a devout pie-lover's teeth ache. —Publishers Weekly
