- Classic Walnut Boule. Of course it's not "classic" because I used toasted sesame oil on a whim (I didn't have any walnut oil), and I forgot how very strong sesame oil is. Um. I almost threw the dough out and started over, but after I baked it the taste didn't seem as overpowering and now I think it's rather tasty.

- Lemon-Cornmeal Cookies. Mmm, really really good. I used fresh ginger instead of ground, and added some orange and lime peel in addition to the lemon. And my cornmeal is very coarse ground. I like the texture, but others might prefer more conventional cornmeal.

- Pepian de Garbanzos (chickpea porridge with chili oil). I sort of didn't read the recipe all the way through before I started cooking, and I missed the part about how it needs to simmer for an hour. So, uh, I didn't eat supper that night until about nine o'clock. The whole thing is pretty labor intensive (slipping the skins off the garbanzos alone took about 45 minutes) but the results were tasty.

- risotto. I know! How have I lived this long without making risotto? I checked my big Italian cookbook for the general procedure and then made up my own variation with beef stock and broccoli. It was amazing.
