Just Plain Good Cooking from the Author: Bill & Sandy McPherson. Our children wanted me to do a cookbook for them and our grandchildren. They all wanted certain recipes and things grew from there. The book was originally for them and our extended family (The Blackburns,) but friends and others who have seen the book wanted a copy so here we are. I have been cooking for 50 years and these 200 plus recipes are out of a collection of approximately 400 kept in folders and notebooks. Sandy is from Wyoming and had never eaten most of these dishes until she met me. I love to cook and Sandy is more than willing to let me. She does the dishes! When we came back South after we retired I introduced her to more seafood and she was hooked on all seafood and on Gulf Shores Alabama. Some of these recipes I have here are from my Mother and Father, some from my wonderful stepmother, Rita, who did not learn English until first grade. Boy, could she cook Cajun! One of our neighbors, the Rao's (from the Old Country,) taught my Mother how to cook Italian. The rest of the recipes came from friends, cooking magazines or via the internet. I've cooked all at least once. Some are broiler, some are oven or stove top. For ease of doing, the crockpot recipes are great, so I included some of those too. None of the recipes require a lot of talent, are pretty straight forward, easy on the budget and easy to prepare. Cooking methods can be interchanged between crock-pot and stove top on many recipes. As far as measurements go, I'm long past exact measurements. I go by taste and feel. Remember, there is no such thing as "too much garlic." Season everything to Your taste. Bear in mind that as a dish cooks, the spices meld together and some spices increase in taste the longer it cooks. Don't be afraid to delete or add items to the dish. Experiment! Cooking should be enjoyable, so let'er rip and enjoy the experience. There are a lot of seafood recipes because we live on the Gulf Coast where seafood is plentiful and fresh. There is an abundance of Cajun dishes because I learned them from Rita and are just plain good. ENJOY! Bill and Sandy

Adventures In Good Cooking from the Author: Duncan Hines. From 1899 until the American entry into World War II, U.S. presidents sought to preserve China's territorial integrity in order to guarantee American businesses access to Chinese markets -- a policy famously known as the "open door." Before the Russo-Japanese War in 1904, Americans saw Japan as the open door's champion; but by the end of 1905, Tokyo had replaced St. Petersburg as its greatest threat. For the next thirty-six years, successive U.S. administrations worked to safeguard China and contain Japanese expansion on the mainland. The Currents of War reexamines the relationship between the United States and Japan and the casus belli in the Pacific through a fresh analysis of America's central foreign policy strategy in Asia. In this ambitious and compelling work, Sidney Pash offers a cautionary tale of oft-repeated mistakes and miscalculations. He demonstrates how continuous economic competition in the Asia-Pacific region heightened tensions between Japan and the United States for decades, eventually leading to the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Pash's study is the first full reassessment of pre--World War II American-Japanese diplomatic relations in nearly three decades. It examines not only the ways in which U.S. policies led to war in the Pacific but also how this conflict gave rise to later confrontations, particularly in Korea and Vietnam. Wide-ranging and meticulously researched, this book offers a new perspective on a significant international relationship and its enduring consequences.
