Overview


Can the easy-to-cook, inexpensive, low-fat potato—the ubiquitous "spud"—turn up with chicken and peanuts as the star of an exotic stir-fry? Can plump baked potatoes, topped with everything from shrimps and tofu to chicken and chili, win acclaim as delicious one-course meals? Emphatically yes, as these 100-plus recipes prove.

Barbara Grunes, known nationally for her innovative and nutritionally aware recipes, makes it easy for both novice and seasoned cooks to transform "bakers," "broilers," red, new, sweet, and every other kind of potato into imaginative appetizers, hearty soups, exciting stir-frys, 10 different potato salads, a dozen outdoor barbecues, and delicious side dishes, breads—even desserts.

To "top" it off, Grunes presents no less than 24 luscious, low-fat toppings that recreate baked potatoes as main-course delights.

Top your "bakers" with Thai shrimp, eggplant Parmesan, ratatouille, Moroccan chicken, turkey chili, Cantonese stir-fry, Spanakopita, asparagus and mushrooms, tofu Veracruzana, Provencal vegetables, mushrooms and cheese, and many other ingredients. This book also includes appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, and side dishes: Vichyssoise, German potato salad, calm chowder, goulash soup, Oriental steamed potatoes, grilled sweets with pineapple, grilled skins and salsa, Colcannon tandoori kabobs, Cuban mashed potato pudding, potato biscuits, Bohemian dessert pancakes, potato-zucchini pancakes, and many more!

The most health-happy collection of its kind, these recipes deliver not only the great taste but also the incredible nutrition of the potato as a low-fat complex carbohydrate that's cholesterol-free and literally loaded with potassium, vitamin C, and fiber.

    Twisted Stories 12 (last one)

    Cant find the stories? Go to gouhl (not a typo) and see the book philip gould: an unfinished life. A bell rings the next morning and soon everybody except me is ready to go. I scrambled out of bed and snatch my clothes from my suitcase. Susey and Lily walk in with thier gold brown hair in french braids and their blue eyes glowed. "Do you need help," Susey asked me. I shook my head and stared at my clothes and finnished getting dressed. Lily says something for the first,"Well, we'll see you outside." I nod but I was amazed at how much Lily sounded like Emma and Susey sounded like Juliet! Freaky. They go outside and I finnish changing and follow them out. Outside was a table of benches where the campers were eating thier breakfast. I feel alot of whispers and glares at my back. I sit down with Susey and Juliet and I ask them why everyone was looking at me. "Oh it's nothing! They're provably just jealous that you know magic and they don't,"Susey explained to me. Was it always going to be like this? I sigh and slowly eat my serving of pancakes. The boy who I helped yesturday came over to our table so I thought he was going to ssy hello. I waved, he glared back and I decided to check my shoes under the table. "You're Lidia right,"he asks and I nod. "Well, after yesturday and seeing that you have MAGIC I was wondering if we could have a magic duel together." Right away I said no and maybe another time. He glared at me and walked to the Hecate Table. "You have Twisted Stories,"Lily said in her Emmalike voice. "What does that mean?" "It means that you are from two different magical wolds," Susey says in her Juliet like voice. "I guess that makes sense because I do magic with a wand and magic with weapons too!" I said putting together the puzzle. Lily smiled and Susey nodded. "Btw, that boy you were just talking to is Cloud Sharp and he's nineteen and barely anyone has the guts to stand up to him." I looked over at Cloud and see him chatting to his friends. I pulled my wand and was about to say a magic spell but Annabeth from her table shook her head so I put it down. I sigh and see that I finnished breakfast so I get up and walk over to the hill. Susey and Lily followed. When I got up I saw so many cars, buildings, and trash that I knew I wasn't in London anymore. "Where are we,"I ask the twins. Lily answers and says,"Manhatten, New York, USA, North America." I see Angie the gray pegasus grazing at a field just doen the hill. I race dpwn with Susey and Lily folloeing. I point my wand uo the hill and say,"Accio light blue suitcase!" Two moments later my dad's suitcase zoomed over to us. I look at Susey and Lily. "Are you coming with me back to London or not?!" They shook thier heads and Susey says,"Camp Half - Blood is our home and I hope you pkease come back to visit!" I nid hop on Angie and looking at Susey and Lilly I say,"Tell everyone that I say goodbye and I'll come back to visit!" They nod their heads. I know we just met but at Hogwarts people are looking for me and here they know where I'm going. "By Twisted Stories!" They say in unison and then I'm off. I take one last look at Camp Half - Blood, Susey, and Lily and then I whisper in Angie's ear,"Hogwarts." He rears up then we're flying. I dig my face into his mane to stay warm. I smile and hope Angie will come back someday and take me back to Camp Half Blood but right now I have to go. "Juliet, Emma, I'm coming back!" Thank you for supporting the Twisted Stories. Bye! ~TS author~
