You inspire me.
For the last 185 days, I’ve spent countless hours dreaming up recipes for the cookbook.
And I’ve had an incredible time doing so; cooking, creating and writing about food. It’s my thing. And with no disrespect to my own muse, I’m ready to eat someone else’s food! Your food! You already know that I squirrel away hundreds of recipes- whether torn out from magazines or scribbled down on the back of junk mail- I’ve got them all stuffed into a 3-ring binder. The day has finally come to tackle that beast.
Here are 5 scrumptious recipes that I can’t wait to make.
The gorgeous photo (up top) are ice cubes made with edible flowers.
Jayme, from Holly & Flora made these ice cubes using an assortment of colorful flowers from her very own garden. How pretty! She mentions that using distilled water (instead of tap) will create perfectly clear ice cubes without any specks of white.
Jayme also shows an easy way to preserve beautiful spring radishes…
PS- she’s designing her own chicken coop too (we need to live next door).
This colorful stunner comes all the way from South Africa, via Bibby’s Kitchen.
It’s also my husband’s birthplace.
I will happily fire up my oven in the sweltering July heat to make this healthy, roasted vegetable creation. And I will eat tahini from the jar while doing so… Beautiful, Dianne!

There are a squillion mouthwatering recipes on Heidi’s blog, Foodie Crush.
Settling on just one recipe is like trying to pick out a Christmas outfit; it’s not easy! I chose her grilled halibut topped with juicy tomatoes and creamy avocado because it’s fresh, simple and delicious. I bet if you had any leftovers, they’d be great wrapped up in a whole grain tortilla.

And for something sweet…
How about these luscious boozy popsicles from Elizabeth? She’s the talent behind Brooklyn Supper which won ‘Most Delicious Food’ at the recent Saveur Blog Awards (congrats!). What I love most about this sweet treat, is that it’s made with fresh ginger and zesty ginger beer.
Excuse me, as I wipe the drool off my keyboard…
