toryimageThe mind is a strange thing. I realized this in the last minutes of my life. I knew I was dying; yet I was calmly amazed at the thoughts that raced through my brain. I tried to piece together all that had led to this moment and being held underwater, my body deprived of oxygen. Why? I thought. I had done nothing to deserve this. Drawing the reader in from the first few words, “Drowning Tory” is local author Sheryl Barlow’s second novel.

Written by Debi Neville

0010Even in tough economic times, the diet industry is a multi-million dollar business. The clamor for weight loss magic is growing with obesity numbers increasing. Powders, pills and purchasing complete meals are short-term, complex and costly fixes.

    Jen Brewer’s new book, “All Diets Work, That’s the Problem,” is, surprisingly, not a diet book. Instead, it is a guide through lifestyle changes that will lead to a healthy and long life as well as weight loss.


0022Christine Hanna, culinary enthusiast and president of Hanna Winery in Sonoma, epitomizes the region’s laid-back approach to wine and food. Her wine expertise and entertaining savvy shows in each of the 100 recipes in this collection.

    The book is arranged by season, with five major meal plans included in each. The Autumn Dinner, for example, includes recipes for spicy eggplant caviar with pita crisps, fall lettuces with pear and pecorino, pan-seared steak with porcini-merlot reduction, roasted potatoes and shallots with herbed aioli and pear tarte tartin with ginger ice cream.
