Weekend Links #23

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:
--I would definitely get these glass food storage boxes if I lived near Crate & Barrel. Glass is better for your food (no plastics leaching into your lunch).
--All about quinoa, which I learned is actually a seed and not a grain (from Peru Delights).
--Sarah Wilson has written a book about her journey to quitting sugar, which includes an eight week program to do it yourself. This might be the final push for me, hmm. Trouble is, every time I get close to doing it, I go on a sugar binge.
--I started eating sardines recently. (So far it's been just the canned version.) They are high in omega 3 fatty acids. Here's a list of the omega 3 fishes (from Readers Digest). By the way, sardine recipes will be gratefully received. :)
--An article about cultured meat and the environmental, health, and welfare issues behind meat eating (from Small Bites).

recipe links:
--An ingenious idea to chill wine: use frozen grapes (from The Kitchn). I'm thinking I could also use frozen blueberries or strawberries as ice cubes in cocktails. And Brenda told me about making ice cubes with fruit slivers inside.
--How to make your own pastrami at home from beef brisket (from Michael Ruhlman).
--A simple lentil gratin for a chilly or wet day (from Savvy Eats).

off-topic links:
--The Colour Scheme Designer, a clever website that helps you plan complementary or analogous colour schemes. It's made for web designers but I see how it could improve photos and table setting!

What engrossing things have you seen around the internet?
