Heidi, you will love "God's Hotel." It's how medicine should be practiced.

Heidi, I see Daniel de la Falaise's charming Champagne cocktail made you swoon, too. It's been haunting my thoughts since I first laid eyes on it. Many kind thanks for sharing the love.

Another great list Heidi! I'm fortunate to be able to buy Hayden Flour Mills' fantastic products at my local farmers market but I hadn't heard about the freekah yet. Ordered! Thank you!

Enjoyed the link to Madison's discussion on the laurel family. I should send you a photo of our bay laurel - huge and much used in cooking. We live south of Houston, and they do great here (although under-utilized in the landscape). You can also find sassafras in the area; we used to dig up the root and make tea.
