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.

The simplest of carrot soups. One I love, in part, because it's an example of how a beautiful meal can come together with a bit of care, and an impossibly short list of ingredients. Carrots and onion form the base, which is spiked with dollop of red curry paste, and then pureed into silky oblivion.
A limoncello macaroon recipe along with a batch of photos from a cabin weekend in Mendocino. The cookies are golden-crusted, powder-coated, almond-citrus gems spiked with limoncello liqueur my sister made for me.
I find myself using steam as a cooking technique increasingly for a number of reasons. It's deceptively fast. It maintains much of the vibrancy and vitally of ingredients. It's one of the most healthful ways to cook, and (as you'll see) it's surprisingly adaptable.
If you've been to my house at any point in recent months, you've likely had these dates - broiled with saffron, almond extract, ghee, and a bit of salt. They're unctuous, sweet goodness.
Kernels popped in ghee,clarified butter, or coconut oil and tossed with a short list of power ingredients - turmeric, saffron, nutritional yeast, sesame, and toasted coconut. A+ afternoon snack.
Hibiscus and rose hips are both Vitamin C power houses. This is a much appreciated tea blend for when an immunity boost is needed, or for the times when you're feeling stressed, over-worked, or dragging just a bit. I add a good bit of saffron, and lemon peel for dimension and flavor.
Yogurt isn't just for breakfast or a quick snack; it has limitless possibilities.This is a list of some of my favorite ways to enjoy it. Enjoy!
These homemade power bars are based on the recipe I published years ago in Super Natural Cooking. The main difference here is I made these more savory with toasted walnuts, crumbled kale chips, and oil-cured olives.
Yellow split peas incorporated into a ginger-spiked yellow coconut curry broth (lots of turmeric) - cherry tomatoes, chive oil, seeds, micro greens. The best kind of working lunch.
A flavor-forward potato salad you can make a meal of - French lentils, sun-dried tomatoes, ginger, garlic, almonds, and basil. All together. In one beautiful roasted potato salad.
