Sparkle Kitchen: Starry Night Chamomile Shortbreads
Cut into star shapes, these chamomile shortbread cookies would be perfect for your next star watching party. Chamomile's relaxing properties always make me think of it as a nighttime herb, and the cheery, yellow flowers are summery, too.
Sparkle Kitchen: Summer Salad
Martin and Sylvia enjoy this Summer Salad in the story "Night Magic." It’s based on a Niçoise salad — a lovely plate of greens topped with a variety of good things: traditionally tuna, marinated green beans, potatoes, and anchovies.
