• Flo Braker's Pain d'amande Cookies, a guest post at David Leibovitz's weblog. We are suckers for fragile, crispy cookies like these. There's something so plain and simple about a delicate cookie, yet elegant and irresistible too. These are supposed to be honeyed, toasty, and crispy.
• Strawberry Panna Cotta with Strawberry Compote at Epicurious. With the weather unseasonably hot and muggy, anything cool and creamy sounds wonderful. We feel like we could eat this for every meal right now.
• Badass Beet Salad! from Boots In the Oven, a fabulous and new (to us) blog. This stunning salad satisfies every craving for color and texture we have right now, in the gateway to summer.
What's inspiring you right now? What's on your to-cook list of delicious things? Tell us; we want to go and look at every one of your suggestions.
