La Tartine Gourmande, Recipes for an Inspired Life, is a beautiful read, filled with foods for all times of day, snacks and desserts included. Oh yes, desserts! Like the Spiced Panna Cotta below, the recipe of which can be found here.
The book has inclinations toward French food, due to the author's French heritage, however the recipes are simple and accessible (really, isn't most French cuisine like that anyway? Fresh ingredients, simple and traditional techniques, etc.).
I like that her recipes use fresh ingredients and are also encouraging of gluten-free diets. Peltre herself has a gluten intolerance, so many of her recipes use flours other than wheat-based ones. Yet the recipes don't seem fussy or weird; I doubt I'd miss wheat much if cooking my way through this book.
While I've yet to really knead my way through the recipes, I did have a chance to make her Nutty Maple and Vanilla Granola.
