Make Your Own Artisanal Culinary Salt or Bouillon from Wild Weeds + Garden Herbs

I’m so not a foodie. I’m so not someone who makes artisanal salts. But then, one day I did.

Yantras on the Path of Yoga + Ayurveda

Susan Fauman loves shapes. From what I can tell she thinks in shapes. She makes her food into shapes and takes pictures of those shapes.
