"Talking with Kari was like talking with my perfect reader! She asked all the smart questions I was hoping to be asked, and then some I had never dreamed of. We dove straight into the heart of my novel, touched on every character and big idea, and before I could catch my breath, the time was up! And I would have gladly done it all over again."

An Informal History of Peanut Butter, The All-American Food


Jon Krampner

Since its introduction in the late 19th Century, Peanut Butter has become one of America's favorite foods. From the ever popular mass-produced "Jif" and "Skippy" and "Peter Pan" to today's organic artisanal brands at your local health food store, Peanut Butter is enjoyed by more than 75 percent of the population! So where did the idea to roast and mash certain varieties of peanuts come from? Who were the first Peanut Butter Barons? Why is it so nutritious that it's used to prevent starvation in the Third World? Get all the fun facts with lots of great historic pictures in "Creamy & Crunchy", this week's tasty non-fiction treat!

It's the New Millennium and Hungarian divorcée Elza, the enterprising owner of a small but popular countryside restaurant, is yearning for more professional recognition...and a saucier love life. When she schemes to gain the approval of a famous Food Critic so she can win a "Silver Ladle" Award, things turn sour. Kari talks with Novelist Marc Fitten about the second novel in his trilogy about women in Hungary making their way in one of the European Union's most successful post-Soviet societies.
