(3) Website with Artsy Recipes 
Erin Gleeson's The Forest Feast filled with simple, healthy recipes - the best part is Erin's photography overlaid with her type and illustrations.
Hello, cute Superbowl Party food! I’m going to make these little Hummus-Tomato Deviled Eggs for the big game on Sunday. It’s been unseasonably warm in Northern California (with a lot of early blooms!) and I’ve been sitting outside with these for lunch several times this past week… and I can’t get enough of them! Just mash together the yolks with hummus, mayonnaise, and (spicy) mustard until creamy and spoon the mixture into the egg whites. I top each with a half of a grape tomato (like cherry tomatoes, but oblong like a football!). Finish with a sprinkle of smoky paprika and (Maldon) sea salt. Enjoy!

  1. excellent choices..love reading these

    1. Thanks Lakshmi, these folks totally inspired me too!

  2. Loved the Forest Feast website ! Food photography and illustration is so much fun ... I designed and illustrated an Ayurvedic Cookbook for my diploma project, which was so much fun !

    1. Shikha, can we please please see your illustrated cookbook, it sounds lovely and I am super curious! Have you shared it on your blog yet??

    2. Hey, the book isnt on my blog but you can check it out on my behance page - http://www.behance.net/shikhanambiar Would love your feedback :)

    3. Delightful to say the least! Enjoyed reading through your thought process and research that went into it, choosing colors, layout, etc. Beautiful illustrations, Shikha! And the collaterals - calendar and bookmarks - too good.

      That calendar must be one useful keepsake for Ayurvedic cooking enthusiasts!
