Oatmeal Muffins

Oatmeal Muffins

A crumble-topped muffin recipe made with an oatmeal and yogurt base. Craggy, golden-topped, the last thing I'll bake before moving on to a new oven.

Super Natural Every Day: Six Recipe Sampler

Super Natural Every Day: Six Recipe Sampler

A six recipe PDF sampler from my new cookbook, Super Natural Every Day. It includes a few of my v. favorite recipes - Millet Muffins, Ravioli Salad, Avocado & Mustard Seeds, Black Sesame Otsu, Tinto de Verano, and a Tutti-Frutti Crumble. Enjoy!

Pumpkin and Feta Muffins

Pumpkin and Feta Muffins

Savory muffins packed with spinach, feta and Parmesan cheeses, black pepper, mustard, and sunflower seeds. Adapted from a recipe in a lovely little self-published Australian cookbook, Martha Goes Green.

Quinoa Skillet Bread

Quinoa Skillet Bread

A rustic, minimally structured, custard-topped, crusty-edged, herb-scented corn-quinoa skillet bread.

Multigrain Waffles

Multigrain Waffles

Poppyseed-flecked and made with a blend of barley, oat, and rye flours, these multigrain waffles are buttermilk-moist with a golden crust and a hint of tanginess.

Lucia Muffins

Lucia Muffins

These muffins are saffron-smacked and riddled with golden raisins, buttermilk battered and barely sweet. Said another way, Lucia buns reinterpreted as muffins. If you love saffron give them a try.

Figgy Buckwheat Scones

Figgy Buckwheat Scones

These jammy, fig-swirled buckwheat scones are from Kim Boyce's inspiring new book, Good to the Grain, about baking with whole-grain flours.

Orange and Oat Scones

Orange and Oat Scones

Rustic orange-scented oat scones peppered with currants inspired by a recipe in Romney Steele's new Big Sur-based My Nepenthe cookbook.

Maple Syrup Scones

Maple Syrup Scones

Maple syrup scones sweetened with a hint of maple syrup. Big flakes of sugar meld into a sweet, crackly top crust, and the whole wheat pastry flour makes them beautifully tender.

Wheat Berry Breakfast Bowl

Wheat Berry Breakfast Bowl

A perfect breakfast - thin slices of sautéed pears, ruby-hued cranberries, and plump, golden wheat berries are sweetened with generous dollops of maple-sweetened yogurt and finished with plenty of toasted pecans and a sprinkling of dried persimmons, ginger, and dates.
