Help Sun Basket Fight Hunger

If you find that you need to skip your regular Sun Basket delivery at this busy time of year, you can now choose to have your box delivered to a food bank instead. This holiday season, Sun Basket is proud to partner with Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.

Sicilian Pignoli

Tender, chewy, and incidentally gluten-free, pignoli are found in Italian bakeries all over America, but they couldn’t be easier to make at home.

Sun Basket sits down with Kristen Donnelly, author of Modern Potluck


It’s potluck season, and we need party-friendly recipes more than ever. Happily, there’s a book for that. Food writer Kristen Donnelly’s Modern Potluck is filled with simple-to-make recipes that are ideal for taking to a holiday party. In Donnelly’s own words, the recipes are “crowd pleasing with just a hint of edge."

Olive Oil-Fennel Seed Shortbread & Almond-Tahini Cookies

Not all of the great cooks at Sun Basket work in the kitchen. Brittany Howlett had a career as a pastry chef before she came on board to work as a liaison between our test kitchen and our procurement team, the folks who buy our ingredients. Lucky for us that she hasn’t given up her love of baking. Recently she brought these two incredible batches of cookies into the office to share. They’re so good, we felt it would be wrong not to share the recipes with you.
