If a recipe appears on 101 Cookbooks, I stand behind it. But beyond that, there are a number of favorite favorites. I've listed them here.

A banana bread absolutely packed with sesame seeds, made with a blend of whole wheat and white flour, yogurt, ripe bananas, and lemon zest.
Butter a skillet add corn, fresh thyme, red onions, toasted almonds and coconut, and finish with a squeeze of lemon or lime juice...
A summer yellow bean salad with a green chile-spiked, cilantro-flecked, and coconut milk dressing, toasted pepitas, and (if you want to make a meal of it) pan-fried tofu.
A simple savory tomato tarte tatin made with ripe market tomatoes, plenty of caramelized onions, a wee splash of balsamic vinegar, and whatever pie dough you might have on hand (or in the freezer)...
A breezy summer-spirited lunch salad made with celery, beans, and Parmesan. And a glance at my attempt at organizing some of my pictures into albums.
My favorite tomato salad this year - made with roasted and ripe tomatoes, capers, mozzarella, almonds, and chives.
Snappy, small, fragrant, vanilla wafer cookies made with a whole vanilla pod. The entire thing!
A beautiful fried rice made with brown rice, egg, sunchokes, cashews, and basil when Grace Young came over for lunch last week.
Really great pancakes made with lots of brown rice and sesame seeds. I throw in crumbled, toasted nori and spices to make them extra special.
A variation on the granola from my last book - this time with rose petals, walnuts, currants, and black pepper.
