We hope that this will be a weekly affair, interesting things for you to check out over the weekend (while you wait for us to post a new recipe).

This recipe is accidentally allergen-free, and sounds great for the fall.  Or, you know, any temperature below “I’m melting”:  http://frombootlewithlove.wordpress.com/2012/08/10/aubergine-and-chickpea-stew/

What a cool idea for a picnic — corn cooked in a (cleaned!) beer cooler: http://kitchen-parade-veggieventure.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-cook-corn-in-beer-cooler.html   (hahaha puns are fun.)

This a UK site for milk replacement products that aren’t available here, but I’m sure the ones that are available here (U.S.) could be substituted. What’s cool is they have a lot of recipes that are dairy free, and they also have vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and nut-free options, check it out: http://www.mydairyfreedream.com/recipes/index

Here’s a neat summer treat I found on Twitter, Watermelon Sorbet: http://www.incrediblesmoothies.com/raw-food-diet/raw-recipes/vegan-dairy-free-watermelon-sorbet-recipe/ I bet adding some DeKuyper® Watermelon Pucker schnapps would be yummy to convert this to a frozen drink.

This is kind of neat, it’s a food allergy product sampler of the month club! Just like Harry & David only you get to pick based on your dietary restriction instead of different fruit. https://www.tasterie.com/shop/ I’m strongly tempted to try it. If anyone does, please let us know!

Do you love sriracha?  (Not really SFW or the easily offended) http://theoatmeal.com/quiz/sriracha_addict

Mark Bittman writes on dairy.  The commenters read the article way differently than I did, but I saw an analog to my experience of years of digestive issues that needed dietary change to fix (and that I was told had nothing to do with diet): http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/07/07/got-milk-you-dont-need-it/
