Sunday is our favorite day for self-care in any form, reflection, intentional gatherings and cooking. Our 'Sunday with..' is a way to share these rituals with each other and be inspired.
Tell us about you and what do you do?

Favorite saffron recipe you would like to share?
M: My favorite recipe to make is saffron oatmeal for my son, Ace. He recently turned one and I want to give him nourishing foods. I also love having saffron ice cream!
L: When I have time, I love making lamb stews with saffron and otherwise saffron risotto with mushrooms. Growing up in a Persian household, meant eating a lot of foods that include saffron as one of the main flavors.
What is one of your favorite food rituals you can't live without?
M: Drinking herbal teas, it’s something I grew up with and very ingrained into Chinese culture. Each blend of herbal tea has its own health benefits.
