This was my first time preparing tapioca pudding. This recipe is from Heidi Swanson’s book, Super Natural Every Day. She recommends a light touch with the honey and rose water, and garnishing with chopped toasted pistachios or sliced fresh raspberries.

GC makes these grissini (thin bread sticks) that I love.
Zucchini and Hazelnut Salad
This recipe is from Yotam Ottolenghi’s book Plenty. The combination of grilled zucchini, hazelnuts and Parmesan is really lovely. I don’t have purple basil in my herb garden, so I simply substituted with some mixed green lettuce.
I’ve been experimenting with different types of marmalades and jams—practically any fruit may be used to make some form of spread. This recipe comes from Elizabeth Field’s book Marmalade: Sweet and Savory Spreads for a Sophisticated Taste.
Ginger snaps are more of a holiday cookie, but I love the way the kitchen smells after baking them. The recipe below is from Alice Waters’ The Art of Simple Food. You can adjust the spices to suit your taste. I like to add a pinch of ground cardamom, cloves, nutmeg and allspice.
