Odds & Ends

Pin It

1. I was recently introduced to Darling Magazine, which is both a print magazine as well as a blog. I've been working my way through the archives and several posts have really jumped out at me, so you might see more Darling links in upcoming Odds & Ends posts. Today you should read this one: You Are Enough, which also fits in nicely with the sermon our pastor recently did on Comparison.

2. Cooking Light is hosting "The Great American Healthy Lunchbox Challenge". Basically, they're picking 10 finalists, who enter a picture and description of their healthy lunch, to win $100, be featured in an upcoming issue of the magazine, and receive a Cooking Light cookbook. You don't have to be a blogger to enter! (P.S. I entered my Shredded Vegetable Detox Salad, pictured above!)
3. Have you heard of Daphne Oz? I hadn't until recently, when I was sent a copy of her book Relish which is part cookbook, part memoir, and part how to throw parties/decorate/live life to the fullest (my own made-up category, obviously). I've been working my way through the chapters but have already flipped through each of the recipes and have fallen in love with the gorgeous photos and her creative, but simple recipes. I highly recommend picking up a copy for yourself...it would also make a great gift!

4. Blog reader Jennifer made my fudgy cosmic brownies and said, "I made these last night and they are delicious! I have to admit I was skeptical of only baking then for 18 minutes, but they turned out perfect. Not exactly like Little Debbie brownies - waaaay better! Thanks for the recipe." Did you hear that? Better than your favorite Little Debbie brownies. Make these!!
