Growing Up Greenpoint: A Kid's Life in 1970s Brooklyn
In Growing up Greenpoint, Tommy Carbone captures what it was like to be a kid during the 1970s and 80s in Brooklyn. This funny, and sometimes emotional, memoir follows the years Tommy was educated not only in the classrooms of St. Stan's, but on the streets of Greenpoint. It was there, playing street games with friends, being cornered by muggers, playing kissing games with the girls, spending time with family, and constantly seeking out the best snack foods in the neighborhood, where Tommy learned a lot about life; although he may not have known it at the time.
A simple conversation, years later, about the New York City Blackout of 1977 sparks Tommy to recall his youth in the city he loved. His stories will bring you into the action of what it was like to dodge cars during a ballgame, to take a hike to another borough in search of a particular burger, to the hours spent playing pinball in a corner candy store, and how special it was to build traditions with three generations of Polish and Italian relatives in Brooklyn's garden spot.

Uvelka Buckwheat Groats Extra Uvelka, 1500 gr
Buckwheat groats are commonly used in western Asia and eastern Europe. The porridge was common and is often considered the definitive peasant dish. It is made from roasted groats that are cooked with broth to a texture similar to rice or bulgur. The dish was brought to America by Ukrainian, Russian and polish immigrants who called it kasha. Buckwheat contains no gluten and can consequently be eaten by people with coeliac disease or gluten allergies. Buckwheat is actually a plant related to rhubarb and its groats are actually a gluten free seed. This fun "grain" is shaped like a pyramid and is a complete protein, containing all 9 of the essential amino acids. It can be steamed, toasted (check out instructions on back of the bag!), roasted, ground into flour or boiled. Try buckwheat groats in any recipe that calls for whole grains: pilafs, salads, casseroles, soups, granolas, stews or as a cereal on its own. Buckwheat groats are also the key ingredient in traditional eastern European dishes like kasha varnishkes and potato knishes. Cooks in only 10 minutes! like all of our gluten free-labeled products.
