Love the Punjabi video listing. Quite amusing being that I'm of Indian descent!


LOVE this love list! I've discovered so many great sites via yours - thanks! Made the tart from Wednesday's Chef site last week and may only make polenta crusts from now on. Lived in Kyoto almost 20 years ago - Pico Iyer (the Joy of Quiet) came to a party out my house -- a gentle soul, brilliant mind. What else... I want to house-sit in Hawaii and go to that workshop in Abruzzo Italy! Thanks for all the day-dream fodder.


great list - and a lovely bit of reading when i settle down to relax this afternoon. thank you as always!

Heidi, I've been scanning thrift stores for months trying to find those glasses (and $3?). Thank you SO much!

Lori -- it's called Buddha's hand! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddha%27s_hand Heidi-- thanks for this list, as always....I especially loved the NYT's article about quiet...so perfect for me right now.


Heidi, I suddenly see the strange alien looking fruit/vegetable in your photo everywhere....what is it?!


Heidi what Im most excited to know is what you plan to do with your Buddhas hand?! Great list, thank you!


Lovin' your favorites list! I want to try the slaw and artichoke tart... deeeelicious!!

Laurie {Simply Scratch}

You always have fabulous lists. Thanks especially for the link to the cookbooks. That gets me more excited than anything else...wow, I sound like my mother :)

Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

Love the quinoa patties. But I still prefer your recipe with kale. Also, gonna definitely try the polenta tart!

Mike @TheIronYou

hi, does anyone know if the artichoke tart calls for polenta meal (grains), or the polenta you buy in plastic tubing (like at Trader Joe's)? Thanks!


What a list! I'm so glad you shared the spring cookbook preview from Eater because I didn't know April Bloomfield was finally coming out with a book- she rocks!

Thanks so much for linking to my post! Those flat breads are one of my all-time favourites! Thank you also for sharing all the other links!

Maria @ Scandifoodie

Thanks for that link to the Made With Love download! Awesome.

Emma Galloway

Heidi, thanks for the list of new cookbooks! Nested in that list is one from Kir Jensen, who makes the *best* cupcakes in Portland, no contest. I will cross my fingers that this book will allow me to recreate her cupcakes at home (a girl can dream!).


Oh, I've been meaning to try the artichoke tart! I really enjoyed The Joy of Quiet. Love your lists :)

charlotte au chocolat

I'd never contemplated making an artichoke tart, but it sounds so delicious. Thank you for including it in the list. I'm looking forward to next month's list already!


I just picked up your second cookbook, Super Natural Everyday, and I am so excited to get started on some recipes. It's such a beautiful book.

Heidi-I really love your favorites list--a sort of compass for me on food, art and other interesting things around the internet. I loved F. Scott Fitzgerald's list for his daughter (useful for adults as well whose worry lists are too complicated and long--although mosquitoes are still on mine). The article on the Joy of Quiet was interesting too. I think you might enjoy a beautiful new blog by a Minnesota artist. Her name is Mary Jo and her blog is called Still (it's full of spare, beautiful photos).


I have made the artichoke with polenta crust tart three times. I just can't get enough of it. You are going to love it!
