Many of you have seen my spice drawer - always in some state of disarray. I also have another area - filled with ingredients I use to make herbal tea blends.
I thought I'd highlight one of the ingredients I reach for most often. Yogurt isn't just for breakfast or a quick snack; it has limitless possibilities.
This is the time of year I find myself drying herbs. In part, it's because I tend to come across special, unusual varietals in the spring and late into summer - caraway thyme, pineapple sage, fresh coriander.
Those of you who have been readers for a stretch know how much I love a homemade travel snack. I went on an intense 48 hour sourcing trip last week and posted a photo to Instagram of the Do-It-Yourself Power Bars I made to take with me.
It might be incredibly hot where you live right now, and, if that's the case, I apologize for posting a soup recipe.
I'll kick this off by saying, this is a roasted potato salad with a secret weapon ingredient. Or, if you prefer, a wild card.
The first time I made this was a year or two back, while visiting my friend Bonni's cabin. It's a riff on the Saffron Honey I included in Near & Far.
I've done a number of these roasted tomato salads over the years, but this is the one I featured in Near & Far.
A lot of you seemed enthusiastic about the No-Bake Energy Bars I posted to the QUITOKEETO site a few weeks back.
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.
I'm delivering a list of quenchers today. A quick summer drink round-up to keep you hydrated and full of good ingredients while enjoying the sunshine.
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.
We're ramping up to peak summer fruit season here in San Francisco. I thought I was covered after stocking up at the weekend market, but had a bonus windfall thanks to this thoughtful lady.
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.
A favorite cocktail, Palomas push all the buttons - bright, refreshing, tart, with a kiss of sweet and salty.
There was a man behind me at the grocery store the other day. I was in the bulk section surrounded by large jars of dried herbs, tea blends, spices, and sea vegetables.
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.
My intent here was to make a chilled, pureed, Thai curry soup. It would be summery and refreshing, and at the same time, strong with green curry flavor.
Palak paneer is power food. When translated literally it means spinach (palak) and cheese (paneer) - the two primary components.
This is another one of the quick lunches I pulled together recently at the Quitokeeto studio. It's incredibly basic, and, like many noodle dishes, unusually satisfying.
