“Ms. Peters, a blogger who lives in Berlin, draws on a mix of German and Mediterranean influences. That includes Malta, where she has family, inspiring the addition of orange peel in a bittersweet chocolate Bundt cake and blood oranges in a steaming bowl of mussels. Her sandwiches … including one made with roasted cherry tomatoes and garlic: easy for lunch, suitable for hors d’oeuvres on little toast rounds, and alluring when assembled on long ciabatta breads for a party.” —The New York Times

“Blueberry, Buckwheat, and Hazelnut Muffins—Ground hazelnuts and nutty buckwheat replace wheat flour to turn this muffin recipe into a gluten-free treat. The warmth of cinnamon merged with sweet juicy berries creates the most tempting aroma from the oven . . .
