Around the Internet Kitchen: Bake Sale!

by Nick

I’m one of the bloggers participating in a fun bake sale this weekend at the DuPont Farmer’s Market. From 9AM to 11AM this Sunday, you’ll be able to buy delicious baked goods from a variety of DC food bloggers.

What am I making you wonder? Well… you’ll have to show up at Zorba’s Cafe between 9-11 so you can see for yourself! And if you happen to not be in DC, then you can also just wait for me to post on it which I will in good time ;)

All the proceeds go to Doctors without Borders so come buy some stuff! Given the list of bloggers baking, I bet there will be some good loot there.

For the poll this week, I let Betsy browse through the new Bon Appetit and mark a few recipes. These are her favorites… you guys pick one for me to make next week.

And just a handful of links:

A Sweet Problem – Ok. So it turns out that maybe those HFCS commercials are a bit misleading after all. This new study shows that even if you eat the same caloric amount of HFCS and sugar, HFCS will cause more weight gain. Ouch. (@ Princeton)

Sugar Content of Common Foods – What has more sugar? A Krispy Kreme donut or one serving of Yoplait yogurt? I’ll tell you that it’s not even close. That and other shocking sugar-stuffed foods in this post. (@ Summer Tomato)

The Complete Olive – A very long-time Macheesmo reader (she actually was the very first person to ever comment on my About page) has started a new fun endeavor dedicated to Mediterranean Food. I love me some olives. Swing by her new site and check it out!

Things Restaurant Patrons Shouldn’t Do – A pretty funny list of things you should try to avoid doing if you go out to eat. Most of them fall under the, “Be nice to others.” category. Servers are people too! There’s some good comments also. (@ Endless Simmer)

Happy Weekend Everybody! If you’re in the area, come to the bake sale!
