My daughter, author of the site BakeLogic, and I had lunch with Kerry Diamond a few weeks ago. Kerry is co-editor of the indie food magazine Cherry Bombe and a dear friend. At lunch she told us about putting their first-ever cookbook together “a compilation of crave-worthy recipes from 100+ of the coolest, most creative women around.” Not out until 10/10, but you can pre-order here.

Our zucchinis have been zoodled and the tomatoes were a corn salad staple. Next up, I want to make pickles and Daniel Boulud’s recipe from Elle Decor looks easy and yummy. Recipe below:
Tomatoes are at their peak right now and I’ve been searching for new recipes. I do make a mean tomato and corn salad (with feta and a balsamic vinaigrette), but I’d love to make more of a main dish. This tomato and roasted garlic pie in bon appétit looks like just the ticket—love that it’s good cold, too.
I’ve rediscovered the radish and am using it in a myriad of ways. From roasted to shaved raw with a mandoline, my fave root vegetable this summer is also really good for you. Bon Appétit has some fantastic radish recipes as does Martha Stewart. I found this article on storing after harvest and The Washington Post has a piece on winter radishes.

Asparagus is one of my all-time favorite veggies—peeled and grilled, please. I stumbled across this fantastic article in The New York Times that has lots of great recipes and a guide to the proper way to choose, store, and prep— ’tis the season of the green stalk.
I have yet to see the Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, however, I have pre-ordered this cookbook from Assouline—it will make a great hostess gift, too. Love that it’s spiral-bound and will lay flat on my counter.
A galette is so easy and delicious. I’ve never made one in a cast-iron skillet— would be great for Easter lunch.

On My Mind
March = spring break and this year we are doing college tours. I’ve already booked a hotel in Boston for the first leg of the trip and we will stay with family for the second leg.
Before we get on the road, I’m eager to see the Julian Schnabel exhibition at Pace Gallery, which features paintings of the garden at Auvers-sur-oise, France. The two books that I’ll tuck into my suitcase are Joan Didion’s “South and West: From a Notebook” and “The Drifter” by my one-time Harper’s Bazaar colleague, Christine Lennon. And to try some new recipes–my husband made this cod casserole last night–it was unusual and delicious.
We’ve been craving fish stew so my husband pulled this recipe from Saveur. Perhaps we can cut the cream in half by using coconut milk– the perfect winter meal.
Cauliflower is my new favorite veggie, its up there with zucchini noodles. The mild nutty flavor works with just about everything. I like this roasted-parmesan recipe from Epicurious–talk about easy.
