Alright, let's get this out of the way. The REAL Post of the Week is Pim's call for donations to UNICEF. There are prizes involved and for every $5 you donate you get a chance at one of the prizes. So go donate now and come back here.
I. The season of marzipan is upon us and Deb over at Words to Eat By shows us the goods in an overview of almond paste goodies at Fortunato Brothers. Deb tells us they look great, but don't taste amazing. The photos are still a visual feast.
A. Carrot tops are not just for stock. They go very well in a carrot top and quinoa soup. When I saw "carrot top soup", I'll admit, I wondered how you get a washed-up bodybuilding prop comedian into a vat of soup. Then I got a little sick to my stomach.
1. We've been featuring some Christmas-y drinks here on Too Many Chefs. We haven't talked about beer at all. A Good Beer Blog fills us in on five good Christmas-y brews to enjoy this season.
Drink one of those brews while savoring a bowl of carrot top soup and staring at marzipan garlic bulbs, then CLICK to donate to UNICEF's Pakistan earthquake relief fund.
