New Poetry



Malcontent


by Jeffrey Charles Naish


MALCONTENT is the uncompromising and unparalleled epitaph of a lost soul wandering through the dark depths of a societal wasteland, the last words screaming from a man dragging through the agonies of a mundane existence.  From the trials and terrors of the flesh, to vacant hearts in exile, to the inner turmoil onset by the false hope of prosperity, none shall escape the flames of guilt and regret... as the frayed ends of out timeline burn with dissatisfaction.

My Hyacinth Mountain


by Antonino Monti






Let me lead you down the path,

so that I may have a laugh.

Because life isn’t so bold,

when your heart is cold.

Wisdom crowds the dark mind,

so you never know what you’ll find...

 

I’m beside the fountain,

do you understand my Hyacinth Mountain?

Mommy, Can I Have That?

Allergy Friendly Recipes The Whole Family Will Enjoy


by Elizabeth Cosgrove Feeney



This is a book of recipes that people with certain allergies can eat and the entire family can enjoy. In this case, the foods are free of eggs, dairy products , peanuts and tree nuts. This book is about making recipes with everyday ingredients found in your kitchen without causing you to spend $30 to make a pan of brownies. I have striven to make sure that these ingredients are not complicated or expensive.


Some years ago, when my youngest son was nine months old, we learned that he was allergic to eggs, dairy products, peanuts and tree nuts. This was' at first' a difficult and frightening diagnosis, but it gave me  inspiration to learn to cook for him and the family and then to write this book.  In the beginning, I would prepare something for my son and something else for the rest of the family. This got old fast. 


I began by taking some of my grandmother's recipes and substituted allergy friendly ingredients for the offending ones. The results were fantastic and the foods were delicious. You can bring them to parties and gatherings and no one would guess that they are non-allergic. There are allergy free foods here that cannot be purchased in stores, such as cinnamon rolls, donuts, marshmallow fluff and sponge candy. 


My purpose here is to make cooking for a family member with certain food allergies less intimidating. I hope all readers find some things in this book they can use and enjoy.
