These Lemon Poppyseed Scones by Kristen Genton are everything you could ever want in a scone. The flavor is light for spring/summer and they look oh so pretty. Leaving scones in a circle shape is great because it’s 1) less work to form them and 2) they have more nooks and cranny’s for the glaze! Try them out — and then try not to eat them all at once.

This Cauliflower Tikka Masala by Priya Lakshminarayan is a vegan take on the always popular chicken tikka masala and uses cauliflower instead of chicken. Using red, yellow, or orange bell pepper rather than green gives the dish the desired color. Serve this lovely recipe with flatbread or rice to soak up the deliciously rich and creamy sauce.   Excerpt from The Essential Vegan Indian Cookbook by Priya Lakshminarayan, published by Rockridge Press.

This Veggie Skillet Pot Pie by Bri Beaudoin is the ultimate comfort food. It’s a stick-to-your-ribs meal that won’t leave you needing to take a nap afterwards. The base is made with potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, and green peas coated in a delicious gravy. We even sneak some beans in for extra protein. Everything gets topped with a shatteringly crisp golden-brown pastry. Store-bought puff pastry saves the work of fussing around with a traditional crust. Better yet, this entire dish comes together in a single pan, which can also be brought directly to the table.
