Weekend Links is a way of sharing all the engrossing things I see around the internet. I publish Weekend Links approximately every two weeks. As usual, I welcome your ideas and feedback.
food reading links:
--The University of California at Berkely has been running a course this semester called Edible Education. All the lectures have been videoed and are available online for free. Listen to lectures by Marion Nestle, Michael Pollan, and others.
--A review of the film Toast, about food writer Nigel Slater's childhood (from Lettuce Eat Kale). I am very much looking forward to seeing this.
--Ten tips to manage mindless eating (from Casual Kitchen). What strategies do you have (or need)?
--Homemade ricotta cheese - really, it's ridiculously easy (from The Stonesoup Diaries).
--And if that excites you, how about homemade creme fraiche, while you are at it (from Two Tarts)?
--Brownies with spinach and carrots (from Not Quite Nigella). Adapted from the same cookbook that brought you chickpea chocolate chip cookies.
--A savoury lentil and walnut loaf (from Oh She Glows) for a vegetarian main dish.
--A sugar-free cinnamon quick bread that contains parsnips (from Scandi-Foodie).
--All about the copyright fights over the slogan "Keep Calm and Carry On" (from The Awl).
--I'm considering getting a Brazilian Blowout and having straight hair for 10 weeks. Any stories to share?
