This time last year we were deep into our first Kitchen Cure, and there is a lot of inspiration in our archives for those of you doing the Cure this year. There were also some great spring recipes and good kitchen equipment. Here's a quick look at some of the most memorable posts from this week a year ago — just in case you missed them the first time around!

Posts pictured above are in bold type below.

Three things that inspired me last week, a lovely meditation from Dana.

• Jam from a guy on a bicycle (read through all the comments).

• Favorite kitchens from Small Cool 2008.

• Sweet treats: Blueberry Lavender Cream Pie, single layer cakes, rhubarb fool, and individual-sized desserts.

Ostrich, emu, goose, and duck egg at Whole Foods. They're local!?

• Another tip for growing your own sprouts.

• Cocktail weather is almost here! Here's how to rim a cocktail glass for margaritas.

• More than 30 suggestions on the very best chef's knife.

• A look ahead to the second half of the Kitchen Cure: the savory ingredients that every pantry should have.

• What are the best gifts for a kitchen housewarming?

• Good recipes for spring suppers: Polenta with Andouille and Broccoli Rabe, Pecan Crusted Salmon with Sautéed Ramps and Purple Potatoes, Spring Radishes Braised with Shallots and Vinegar, a spring birthday picnic.

• Some advice on buying a burr grinder for your coffee.

• No summer tomatoes yet, but these cinnamon-spiked tomatoes use the canned ones, and they are still pretty great.
