If they wanted pizza, he said, they had to make it themselves. The resulting pizza crust is puffy and pleasantly chewy. Another Pepperoni's touch, Daniel brushes the crust of each pie with a garlic-olive oil butter when it emerges from the oven: built-in garlic bread. Three salads round out the menu, along with both draft and bottled beers and fountain sodas. They plan to expand the menu with wings and other appetizers when they add a fryer.

Diffley is clearly a poet speaking from her heart and yet she has a steel backbone when it comes to meeting the challenges of nature. In addition to being a charming memoir of love and living off the land, Diffley's debut is a timely tale of modern farming, the growing organic movement, and the problems that arise when urban development runs up against fertile fields. Equal parts anecdote and practical organic farming guide, this book is a powerful testament to the Diffleys' passion for their work and a terrific guide to the trials and tribulations of sticking to the land, sticking to the Man, and going organic.
Turn Here Sweet Corn is a wrenching tale of a common yet private tragedy: the way development pressures push farming families off the land, and what happens to those families during and afterward. A fascinating look at the hazards and challenges of raising food, from the thread of hailstones to political maneuvering to encroaching suburban development. This is no organic farming and marketing textbook. It is beautiful, creative writing, filled with vivid descriptions and metaphors that seem to pour effortlessly out of this passionate author.
Corn is, of course, an evocation of much more for the author and her readers. Atina Diffley has a great story to tell, and she tells it well in this lovely, powerful, evocative book. A gifted writer, Diffley brings fire, passion, and poetry to her writing; her book is a wake-up call to the real state of our national food supply and why corporate farming and the application of toxic chemicals can only make it worse. Diffley has an engaging style that transforms her lengthy story into a surprising page-turner.
As details and incidents accumulate over several hundred pages, the story of the Diffley family begins to feel like a nonfiction epic.
