Photographer and food blogger Kimberley Hasselbrink looks at ingredients differently, regarding them in terms of what colors inspire her: the shocking fluorescent pink of a chard stem, the deep reds and purples of baby kale leaves, the bright shades of green that emerge in the spring, and even the calm yellows and whites of so many winter vegetables. Thinking about produce in terms of color has reinvigorated Hasselbrink's relationship with food, and in the collection of recipes contained in Vibrant Food ($25.00), she employs color, flavor, and texture to build gorgeous yet unfussy dishes. From Pasta with Nettle Pesto and Blistered Snap Peas in spring to Broiled Figs with Za'atar and Pecans in autumn, this beautiful celebration of the colors, flavors, and moods of each season create a delicious picture of healthy eating.

The first gluten-free cookbook so enticing that it transcends the genre, Yummy Supper ($24.99) is about bounty, flavor, and fun. Based on Erin Scott's award-winning blog of the same name, it has the same clean, gifty visual aesthetic. These are recipes that emphasize naturally gluten-free ingredients and, like her blog, will appeal not only to gluten intolerants and celiacs but also to anyone just looking for a great recipe.
