Link Roundup / December

Happy mid-December!

^ I came back from India a couple weeks ago which was the most incredible experience (more to come later!). I already can’t wait to go back.

I’ve had this conversation a number of times, embarrassingly with only slightly less self-deprecating language.

I found these articles about Chobani’s rebrand and redesign fascinating. Almost all yogurts are copying Chobani’s original style, plastic white tubs with a tinfoil top, so now they’re trying to do the opposite.

I got some instant coffee to round out all my pumpkin baking, and now this recipe has shot to the top of my baking to-do list.

Pretzel. Shortbread. Cookies. I have to go a little bit further on my next run to center city to check these out!


Link Roundup / November

Happy November! Here are some things I have been loving recently…

Ecobranding – I think I get it…. but I am also doubtful about how helpful this actually is.

For their “Stir Up” campaign, Kellogg is collaborating with Mission Chinese Food, and it’s kind of crazy. Corn Pops with a fried egg and bacon-infused milk? Frosted Flakes with matcha milk? I also can’t get over watching people eat cereal with chopsticks.

“As we increasingly outsource our memories to devices, we may be forgetting the pleasures of imperfect recall.” I love this piece from the New York Times.

‘It’s Alive with Brad’ is my new favorite Youtube series, possibly ever.

A spice mix of halva, sesame, and rose petals? Yes please!

The ultimate pumpkin bread bakeoff. Now I have to try Tartine’s pumpkin bread!

Link Roundup / August

Different flavors of brown sugar in the morning market

Is it weird that I actually really like this vintage clothing line from KFC? This is a great marketing stunt; getting people to pay to advertise fried chicken. The only thing I don’t understand this $20,000 meteorite.

Is it really possible for a product line to be brandless?

I love reading cookbooks. “Recipes have a story arc. You need to get through the tricky early prepping stages via the complications of heat and measuring before you arrive at the point of happy closure”

There are a lot of challenging recipes I want to tackle when I get back to a full, Western kitchen in the US, and this is definitely one.

Seattle Creative Brunch: anyone in the Seattle area can sign up for a brunch with a random group of creative people. I love this idea!

Why sitting at your computer all day can wipe you out. Not sure if this is actually true… but I’d believe it.
