CHG Favorites of the Week

Blog of the Week
Zen Habits
Calming, level-headed, and chock full of sane, well-appointed advice, ZH is an enormously popular blog that gives pointers on how to achieve a simplified, fulfilling life. Extensive archives hold dozens of lengthy articles, with a particular emphasis on food. Mad kudos for the banner, which is eye-grabbing and relaxing at the same time.

Organization Guide of the Week
Charity Navigator: Sharing Your Bounty – Providing Holiday Meals to the Less Fortunate
A brief, link-heavy article about how to best give/serve food to your community and beyond. Great resource for the season.

Quote of the Week
From 30 Rock:
JACK: Lemon, you're here early.
LEMON: Well I gave up caffeine so I've been going to bed at 5:30.

Sketch of the Week
Delicious Dish with Pete Schweddy - from SNL
Featuring Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon, and a smokin' hot Alec Baldwin, it wouldn't be Christmas without this sketch.

Tip of the Week
If you’re in a hurry and the size of your cooked vegetables doesn’t matter, opt for kitchen shears over a knife and a cutting board. Cut broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, or herbs directly over the pan.

Untried Cheap, Healthy Recipe of the Week
Mustard-Crusted Pork Tenderloin with Carrots and Lentils at Slow Cooked
Fellow Brooklynite Molly gets all Gourmet on our collective tuchuses. Best line (from her bio): “I prefer my meat rare, my restaurants casual, and my cheese stinky.”

Video of the Week (Food Video of the Week)
"Christmas Wrapping" by the Waitresses
Couldn't miss this one this year. (Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!)
