Roasted Tomato Salad
I've done a number of these roasted tomato salads over the years, but this is the one I featured in Near & Far . I introduced it by saying, the next time you think of making a caprese salad, consider this instead. And I meant it. It's a bit of extra effort (not much), but the combination of both ...
At the Studio: Dark Chocolate Energy Bites
A lot of you seemed enthusiastic about the No-Bake Energy Bars I posted to the QUITOKEETO site a few weeks back. Nut butter, toasted oats, chocolate - they're dead simple to make, and key when I need a late afternoon energy boost, or morning boost, or, whenever, really. Because those were so ...
All Things Pesto
I noticed a number of great pesto-centric recipes deep in the 101 Cookbooks archives, and thought it might be helpful to pull a few of them to the forefront. The smell of basil in summer, and the fragrance that takes over a kitchen when preparing big batches of pesto is one of my favorite things.

As I was updating my favorite summer drinks list this morning, it occurred to me that a round-up of favorite summer recipes might be helpful as well. I'll keep it short, summer-friendly recipes I have a special fondness for, and revisit regularly. xo! -h Heirloom Tomato Salad : Please give this a
4 o'clock No-bake Energy Bites
Energy bites aren't a new thing, but if you're a person that grabs commercial power bars regularly, and you're not already on board, give these a try as a DIY alternative. I make them for a 4 o'clock late afternoon snack to reach for when I'm at the studio, but they're also a great travel option.

It is fruit madness in the refrigerator. I'm looking at tiny black raspberries, the sweetest blueberries, ...
Rainbow Cauliflower Rice Bowl
This is the sort of meal I crave after a travel stint. It's when I end up lingering around the produce section even longer than usual in an effort to cherry-pick the most vibrant ingredients. In this case, rainbow chard with electric pink stems, a tight head of pale yellow cauliflower, just-cut ...
At The Studio: Paloma Rosa
A favorite cocktail, Palomas push all the buttons - bright, refreshing, tart, with a kiss of sweet and salty. They also couldn't be simpler. Combine the juices and tequila ahead of time, and mix in a flash. You can play around with the tequila you choose, for this batch I used a tequila blanco. ...
Whole Wheat Waffles
If you're a waffle fan, please give these a try. Everyone needs a solid waffle recipe in their back pocket, and I'm quite sure these are the end of the waffle conversation for me. You're looking at the waffles I make for every family brunch. They're the waffles requested by my seven-year old nephew
Palak paneer is power food. When translated literally it means spinach (palak) and cheese (paneer) - the two primary components. But there is a lot more to celebrate here. It's the kind of dish that when prepared with care and good ingredients, can shift perspectives. It's delicious, dynamic food
