Happy New Year! After a jam-packed holiday – visiting family in Santa Barbara, Bend and Palm Desert, eating way too much, driving through a snowstorm, and hosting college friends for New Years – we are back home in Washington. I’m inspired by the start of a new season and excited for some serious down-time with nothing planned for a while. That being said, I think Monday will be a struggle.

Until then… A few of the links/things I’m loving from around the web this week:

This book. A Christmas gift from my grandmother. Every inch of it is gorgeous.

My body is cool with gluten, but if yours isn’t, this article (originally from the print version) lays out some tips on navigating a healthy gluten-free diet.

Also, how to avoid/reduce arsenic-exposure in rice. Scary stuff.

And… This quick guide to egg-free baking.

Are you cultish about your coffee?

Google’s top recipe searches of 2014 reveal… we are incredibly boring.

It does not surprise me that pasta is at the top of this list. Coincidentally, nearly half of your favorite ‘Swoon posts last year were pasta recipes!

Homemade pho has been on my cooking to-do list for ages, and this leftover prime rib pho looks divine.

These chilaquiles with black beans and kale would have made the BEST morning-after NYE cure.

This beet, apple, quinoa and sprout salad. That color!

This superfood crunch salad. So fresh!

These 15 Smoothies to fulfill your new year’s resolutions.

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites. Holy. (Healthy). Yum.

Hope you’re having a happy, healthy, delicious start to 2015!
