My series previously known as Watch It Wednesday has be renamed Wandering Wednesday. Instead of sharing just video links, I’m expanding it to include other interesting articles, links, or bits of information I’ve found wandering around the Internet. Here is this week’s round up of what has caught my eye recently.
- 27 Ways to Make Your Groceries Last As Long As Possible – Some of these tips look super helpful and others… not so much. I’m kind of horrified by the suggestion to spray your guacamole with cooking spray before putting it in the refrigerator. That sounds awfully gross to me. Cooking spray alone is pretty yucky and coating my guacamole with it just does not sound appealing. The tip about wrapping the top of bananas with plastic wrap interested me and I’ll have to give that one a try, and I’m interested to read more about the Prepara Herb Savor.
- The New York Times has an article out this week called The Roaming Chickpea Comes Home to Roost. It’s a brief overview of the history of chickpeas, including some of the more common ways to use them. My favorite chickpea recipe is Chickpea Bread Soup (using a gluten free baguette and vegetable stock instead of beef). I also like roasted chickpeas. The article mentions garbanzos con espinaca which I will be adding to my list of recipes to try.
- Perhaps the best link I found this week was Secrets of Making Wheat-Free Bread Rise from Wheat Belly Blog. It explains some of the science behind baking without wheat flour, including measurements necessary for an acid-base reaction and how cream of tartar (potassium hydrogen tartrate) helps stabilize egg whites. Very interesting stuff!
