When she wasn’t in her studio, iconic American artist Georgia O’Keeffe enjoyed her Abiquiú garden, where she grew green chile, squash, tomatoes, herbs, and other fresh fare. Her fruit trees produced pears, apples, and apricots, which provided the inspiration for this recipe created by Margaret Wood, an assistant and personal chef for O’Keeffe. Wood wrote about their time together in A Painter’s Kitchen: Recipes from the Kitchen of Georgia O’Keeffe. In April 2017, we excerpted this recipe for healthy, mouthwatering muffins.
