Internet Finds

Today I'm not feeling too great (maybe a cold virus), so I've been on the internet a bit more than normal.  Oh well.  I thought I'd make the best of it and share some of my favorite internet finds this week.  Are you bored?  Here you go:

  • I subscribe to GOOP and found this awesome email in my inbox this morning.  It's an interview with Jessica Seinfeld, who I LOVE and who just wrote a new book called Do It Delicious, a follow-up to the amazing Deceptively Delicious.  It's filled with simple recipes aimed at cookers and non-cookers alike.  Her website has a bunch of videos that she made for her friend that can't cook at all, teaching her to cook very simple recipes.  I watched the one on halibut over spinach, and it looked SOOO simple.  I'm totally going to try it.  I highly recommend this to anyone that's busy and wants some simple ideas or is wanting to learn to cook.
  • I'm sure you've all seen the hubbub going on with the Amazon scandal and the book on pedophilia.  I know there are many different opinions on the matter, and I respect those, but this blog post from Joyful Abode best sums up what I feel about it.  I could have written my own blog post about it, but she did a much better job with all of the research, so I'll just link to hers.  :)  
  • Erica Jong wrote what I consider to be a pretty absurd an article in the Wall Street Journal about how attachment parenting victimizes women.  It almost sounds like satire until you realize she's serious.  The Undercover Mother wrote a beautiful rebuttal to this article that I very much enjoyed reading and appreciated.
  • And finally, I leave you with this hilarious lesson from SNL on how to be debt-free.  Enjoy.  :)

  1. I completely agree with you on the Amazon thing. The internet has a shocking capacity for over dramatization of the unimportant.


I love to hear from you!
