Did you know that Ben & Jerry’s recently rebranded a new flavor – Food Fight Fudge Brownie – to raise awareness about mandatory GMO food labels in Vermont? I love that despite how big they get, they are still so engaged in what’s going on locally in Vermont.


I have been craving chocolate zucchini bread like crazy lately. It never fails, every summer! I think this Chocolate Zucchini Coconut Cake recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod will be the best way to indulge this craving.


Yelp just released a really neat tool that lets you see how the use of word in reviews has changed over the last decade. Yelp Trends searches through words used in Yelp reviews to show you what’s hot and reveals the trend-setting cities that kicked it all off. Cool data visualization, Yelp!


Did Blowing into Nintendo Cartridges Really Help? An evidence based approach.


I can’t even deal with how cute and clever this DIY Belt Strap Memo Board from A Beautiful Mess is!


I’m so glad I stumbled on this article last week – it takes a super in depth look at how Orange Is The New Black compares between the book and the show. There are some spoilers, mostly from season 1 of the show, but so worth the read. I want to read the book even more now!
