Superb and simple recipes, beautifully photographed, from Little Flower Cafe in California. Owner Christine Moore has become nationally known for her sea salt caramels and homemade marshmallows, and her breakfast-and-lunch cafe in Pasadena, California is hugely popular. She shares her favorite dishes for breakfast, lunch, supper and dessert: soups, salads, tarts, quiches, bowls, sandwiches, pastries, cookies, and more. "We're set to prepare and devour everything in it. The thought of her buttery lemon-ginger scones makes us forget we ever dismissed that baked good as dry and boring. Roasted carrot and fennel soup, quiche with leeks and Dijon mustard as well as a curried-chicken-salad sandwich with apricot chutney all have us dreaming of lunch at all hours of the day. The "Sweets" section, though, could compel us to skip normal meals altogether and live off of blood orange tart, brown butter shortbread and pumpkin bread pudding with, what else, salty caramel sauce." -- Wall Street Journal"
