Threadless-Designed Lunch Bag

Brown Bag ChallengeWe’re teaming up with fellow food bloggers to host a Brown-Bag Challenge, a month-long initiative to eat consciously and save money by packing a lunch each weekday instead of eating out. Join us here and share what you’re eating with FN Healthy Eats on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #brownbag. Are you up for the challenge?

Thermos and Threadless, the community-generated clothing design company, collaborated for a line of lunchboxes we can’t stop looking at. Threadless designs come from an ongoing open-call for submissions from a worldwide community of amazing artists and designers.

Once submitted, the community of nearly one and a half million members vote to decide which designs become awesome products like these sustainable stainless steel hydration bottles and lunch kits. Lim Heng Swee, a Threadless member who designed this bag, says the following about his Juliet design, “When the day comes, I’ll fly, high, in search of my spring of inspiration.”  Find it here.

Fall Fest: What to Pair With Pears

Fall Fest 2010We’re teaming up with other food and garden bloggers to host Summer Fest 2010, a season-long garden party. Each week we’ll feature favorite garden-to-table recipes and tips to help you enjoy the bounty, whether you’re harvesting your own goodies or buying them fresh from the market. To join in, check out awaytogarden.com.

The crisp, sweet, sometimes-earthy, sometimes-citrus-y flavor of pears is naturally enhanced by the flavors of honey, wine and cheese. Raw pears are great sliced on a cheese plate alongside some brie, Stilton, sharp cheddar, or Gorgonzola — a drizzle of honey is optional, or a nice side offering. Choose your wine based on your pear preference: Anjou pears work well with Sauvignon Blanc, Barlett with Brut Champagne and Bosc with Cabernet Sauvignon. But pear season is short so you should make the most of it, and consider not just a cheese plate, but pear recipes that take advantage of perfect partners like wine, honey and cheese, as well. Say, for example, Laura Calder’s Slow-Baked Honey Wine Pears, pictured above and featured on Laura’s show, French Food at Home. Need more inspiration? Here you go:

Fall Fest: 5 Fabulous Fall Salads

Feast on fall freshness: Emeril's shaved fennel salad

Fall Fest 2010We’re teaming up with other food and garden bloggers to host Summer Fest 2010, a season-long garden party. Each week we’ll feature favorite garden-to-table recipes and tips to help you enjoy the bounty, whether you’re harvesting your own goodies or buying them fresh from the market.

In this edition of Fall Fest 2010, we’re talking about the salads of fall. It’s true that the warmer months are better-known for garden-and-farm fresh salads, but just because there’s a bit of a chill in the air, doesn’t mean you have to go eating all heavy. Fall’s bounty — squash, spinach, beans, beets, figs, grapes, apples — this is all great salad stuff. In fact, I’d argue that it’s even better than the zucchini, peppers, corn and peaches we started the season with. So without further ado, here are 5 fantastic salads you must try (before comfort season really takes over).

In celebration of Summer Fest: pepper week, I decided I’d like to pick a peck of peppers, Peter Piper-style. But my peck would be a virtual one, a peck of the best peppers on the web. To do this, I’d first need to figure out what a peck is. Some quick research proved to me that a peck is a customary unit of dry volume, equivalent to 2 gallons, 8 dry quarts, or 16 dry pints.  (And 4 pecks make a bushel.) Turns out that a measure of dry volume doesn’t translate as well online as I’d hoped, but in the spirit of a peck, I’ll pick 8 of my favorite pepper recipes out there — one for each gallon. Try to top that, Peter Piper.
