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.

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!


I can’t believe someone else is reading Congo at the same time I am!

HS: The opening is amazing!

Love this favourites list Heidi – I made the dumplings from Happy Yolks last night and they were fabulous, loved them! And how good is freekah? We use it a lot and just love it.


Wow! I’m sooooo glad that you liked my recipe of poppyseed pie!! Can’t be more excited! :))) Have a wonderful day and thank you!!


I’m in love with the Shitake Bok Choy Dumplings, and her writing style as well! What a wonderful list as always, so many beautiful things to keep me busy this weekend. Thanks!

God’s Hotel is amazing!

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.

Heidi, you will love “God’s Hotel.” It’s how medicine should be practiced.
