This week a year ago we were heading into June with a full raft of cocktails, summer recipes, light-filled kitchen tours, and good ideas for warm-weather food. Here's a look back at some of the best posts from this time a year ago, including an easy rhubarb crumble with an herbal twist, cooking with colostrum, artichoke salads and prosciutto spread, a quirky summer ice cream bowl, and more.

• Cocktails! Sugared grapes and a marinade that becomes a sweet cocktail mixed with wine. Plus cute cocktail glasses, French pastis, roses in cocktails, and to muddle.

• A recipe for quick, easy rhubarb lavender crumble. A favorite spring dessert.

• Kitchen tours: A big, light-filled kitchen in Brooklyn and Kyle's colorful Boston perch.

• Time for ice cream, like this simple honey ice cream from Patricia Wells.

• Whimsical dishes: the Gateau Dish Set and the dish that ran away with the spoon.

• Do you know what colostrum is? How about raw milk ricotta?

• No-bake sunflower date cookies.

• Favorite salads from us to you, for summer, including this raw artichoke and Parmesan salad with mushrooms.

• How to take care of your pizza stone.

Asparagus spread with prosciutto on buttered toast. Yum.

• A favorite! Peppadew peppers...
