Rosewater Shortbread
Rosewater Shortbread - December 10, 2014

Although it's holiday cookie season, I can't help but share these - buttery whole wheat shortbreads fragrant with rosewater, flecked with toasted nuts, and dried rose petals.

Moroccan Carrot and Chickpea Salad
Moroccan Carrot and Chickpea Salad - January 7, 2013

A beauty of a carrot salad - tricked out with chickpeas, chunks of dried pluots, sliced almonds, and a toasted cumin dressing. Thank you Diane Morgan.

Mast-o-Khiar Yogurt Dip
Mast-o-Khiar Yogurt Dip - September 8, 2012

The prettiest dip in my repertoire - my take on the Iranian preparation of Mast-o-Khiar (yogurt and cucumber). I use lots of fresh herbs, dried rose petals, toasted walnuts and a pop of added color and tartness from dried cranberries.

Rose Petal Granola
Rose Petal Granola - June 19, 2012

A variation on the granola from my last book - this time with rose petals, walnuts, currants, and black pepper.

Rhubarb & Rosewater Syrup
Rhubarb & Rosewater Syrup - May 3, 2012

A beautiful ruby-hued rhubarb rosewater syrup. Perfect on (or in) everything from yogurt, spritzers, waffles, or oatmeal.
