Lit Links & Scoops

How to talk to your mixed race friend, family member, or stranger.

At a time when many magazines and newspapers are struggling to stay in print, Cosmo has decided to give Latina Magazine a run for its money by launching an English Latina version.

I have a girl/foodie crush on professional chef and cookbook author Marcela Valladolid, host of the new Food Network show Mexican Made Easy.

@NPR Talks To @GoyaFoods on its 75th anniversary catering to the Hispanic community and bodegas nationwide. Did you know the company started out as a single store in Manhattan?

The ethnic palate finally gets it due – goes mainstream (but of course will be advertised and labeled as “exotic” and “spicy.”

Global food for thought: only 10 companies are responsible for more than 40% of the global retail market, four companies control 75-90% of global grain trade, seven companies control virtually all fertiliser supply, five companies have more than two-thirds of the world’s agro-chemical market, and only three companies control nearly half of the proprietary seeds market.

Back to basics: With the freezing weather and New Year’s Resolutions abounding, these recipes to make your own (bbq sauce, jam & jellies, peanut butter, pasta, pesto and more) foods from scratch not only allow you more control over the calories, sugar content and chemicals you put in your body but tackle one of these on a leisurely Sunday and you’ll be feeling like a true ama de casa in no time.

Why you should care about SOPA – This is how it begins: The Spanish government recently launched a set
of anti-piracy laws
opposed to by “bloggers, journalists and tech
professionals” while Internet users in Belarus will soon face stiff fines
if they access foreign-based websites not using the country’s .by domain
name.

Is the publishing world focusing on too much on right-leaning stories? Big Hollywood seems to think so. There is a certain delicious sort of irony to this if true. Combine the dumbing down of America with the zeal and power of the big six houses (headquartered in left-leaning New York City & helm by intellectuals and creatives) catering to the mass cult of Fox News to produce watered-down mainstream bestsellers while we all cry foul about the craziness of the state of the nation and broken educational system.

*Apologies for all the food-related links. Yes, I’m on a diet.
