Recipe Links:
A simple and laughably easy Spiced Cabbage. (Chow & Chatter)

A healthy, "hurry up" meal you can make in minutes: White Bean and Summer Vegetable Pasta. (Choosing Raw)

Off-Topic Links:
Unsolicited book recommendation of the week: John McPhee's Encounters with the Archdruid. This oddly titled book gives a surprisingly balanced and open-minded look at the maturation of the environmental movement in the USA. I just finished reading it (for the second time!) last week, and highly, highly recommend it.

Is there something you've always wanted to do, but just... haven't? This three-minute video shows you how. (TED Talks, via The Oyster Evangelist) Bonus post: a complete list of all TED talks, broken out by speaker, subject, title content and duration. Worth bookmarking.
