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.

I came across a cookie when I visited Portland, it was a crackle-edged puddle of chocolate with a texture that made me think of the collision between a soft meringue and a fudgy brownie.
Lunchbox magic - a post and video about taking one favorite tomato sauce, and working it into three different lunches.
A lightened-up hummus - reining in the tahini and oil a bit. Billowy and smooth, it's a boosted hummus for everyday, all-day w/ golden beets, turmeric, and chickpeas.
A list of summer picnic bowls to use as inspiration for picnics and potlucks this long weekend. Enjoy! Most are the sort that can be prepped ahead of time. And they're all meant to be served family-style as part of a larger spread.
A savory, summertime ricotta cheesecake recipe made with shredded zucchini, dill, garlic, and Parmesan cheese. Perfect picnic or brunch fare.
Coconut oil dressing was just one of the brilliant ideas that jumped out at me from the pages of Julia Sherman's new Salad For President cookbook.
A happy-making bowl of quick dumplings (made with potsticker wrappers!) filled with pesto-boosted ricotta cheese. Ladled with a simple five-minute tomato broth.
Made using 100% whole wheat flour and hand-chopped chocolate chips, this is a skillet-baked twist on chocolate chip cookies. Spread the dough in an oven-safe skillet, and bake into a single mega-cookie.
Creamy, fresh homemade strawberry almond milk. It really is as good as it sounds.
An absolute favorite lentil soup! A friend turned me onto this Ayurvedic dal recipe from the Esalen Cookbook years ago. Red lentil based, curry-spiced coconut broth with back notes of ginger and tomato, with slivered green onions, and curry-plumped raisins.
