You crave healthy. You need easy. This new cookbook combines the best of both. One hundred recipes — pumpkin pecan granola, soba bowls with tea-poached salmon, crunchy curried chickpeas — are the best of the beloved food blog by the same name.
In a perfect world, the main food groups would be cheddar, blue, Camembert, and Parmesan. Honor all things fromage with a dedicated cutting board and matching knife that spells out your love (literally).
Judging by the pink Himalayan block sitting (unused) in your kitchen, salt is having a moment. Stay on the NaCl trend with finishing flakes harvested from Netarts Bay, Oregon, and pack a slide tin for on-the-go taste emergencies. Table shakers? Please.

Chef John Barricelli conceived this cookbook with his family in mind. Nectarine-mango cobbler with blackberries was first made for his youngest son. Elenore’s plum cake is adapted from his mother-in-law’s recipe. All 135 sweet and savory dishes are seasonally driven and pretty easy to prepare.
Full of form and function, the wood and metal cone design begs to be displayed, but the triple-function blade and wooden bowl catchall make this grater a kitchen essential. Available at canoeonline.net, $60.
Kitchen clean-up need not be so drab. Spruce up your space with this bright idea for your counter. It has a drainage funnel for excess water.
If you like experimental cooking, grab your lab coat (though an apron will do), and marry science and scrumptiousness as you turn your kitchen into a molecular gastronomy workshop. Chocolate spaghetti, anyone?
Green thumbs deserve fresh greens. DIY a mini windowsill garden (choose from Japanese mustard, chrysanthemum, and diakon radish; or peas, carrots, and cabbage), then dish the goods on the bamboo lid that doubles as a serving piece.
