Food for Thought: Food Related Links
I am having computer glitches. Basically, I am asking too much of my computer with the constant photo editing and web page building, my computer is starting to protest. In order to keep things going until I can fix everything, I am going to have to keep my posts and photographs real simple.
There is a lot of information on the world-wide web and it is so easy to spend hours just searching for something, get easily distracted dreaming of new and interesting ideas, or spending way too much time on Pinterest building your dream kitchen. I wanted to share a few links to ideas and topics that are important to me, as well as some good summer dessert recipes. I hope you will learn something new and interesting to share as well.
What are your topics of interest or favorite places?

Interesting interview at Modern Farmer Magazine about the lack of interest politicians have about food policy. It is especially concerning because food policy is related to many other policy challenges for our times, like immigration, climate change, child obesity, and health to name just a few. Modern Farmer

If you love plums and are in the mood to bake, try David Lebovitz’s Plum Cake with Toffee Glaze. This cake is on my to-do list.
It is hot here so I have cool, refreshing and no cooking recipes on my mind. I discovered this Raspberry and Red Peppercorn Sorbet recipe on Pinterest and it reminded me of an ice cream I had in NYC a year ago. I discovered a great Ice Cream Parlor in the East Village, Odd Fellows. Odd Fellows, is a Brooklyn based artisan ice cream store and has a lot of different flavors of great ice cream. I had raspberry and red peppercorn sorbet on a super hot day and it hit the spot. I was so excited to see a recipe for it, it just might get me to buy an ice cream maker. This recipe is not from Odd Fellows but I believe it is similar. Raspberry and Red Peppercorn Sorbet.
If you are like me and do not have an ice cream maker, try no-churn ice cream from Food Network. Another group of recipes on my to-do list. Here is a link to 12 recipes, No Churn Ice Cream.
