We’re nearing a close on the month of March and what a historic, at times mundane, at other times devastating month it was. Our country witnessed multiple mass shootings and an increase in anti-Asian hate crimes. We passed the milestone mark of one year into the pandemic. Vaccine availability grew more widespread. Spring arrived (in some areas more tangibly than others). We continued on with this continually-evolving-even-if-it-doesn’t-always-feel-like-it-in-the-moment thing called life.
Today we’re sharing our monthly roundup of worthwhile links we found on the Internet over the course of the past few weeks. I hope you find them insightful, and I hope you have a good weekend too. Take care of yourselves folks.
1. This post from Cup of Jo shares a couple of key resources to support the Asian-American community following the shootings in Atlanta this month in which eight people were murdered, six of them Asian women.
2. Author Julia Turshen shared how writing a cookbook helped her break free from diet culture.
4. Sophia Roe, mushroom-loving cook extraordinaire, shared this simple tutorial for making her standard mushroom sauté. It’s both delightful to watch and informative. If you like mushrooms, that’s what I’d call a win-win.
6. This month I finally got around to watching To All The Boys: Always and Forever on Netflix, the third movie in the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before series, and my rom-com-loving heart skipped a beat. It’s a lovely film, if you’re looking for something to watch this weekend and haven’t yet gotten to it.
7. I received this face mask as a sample from Sephora and now? Now I am hooked. It’s a gentle yet effective mask that has a soothing, cooling sensation when applied, is easy to wash off, and makes my skin appear bright and toned afterward. Sold.
9. In a cooking rut? Here are 10 quick spring dinners, from Jenny Rosenstrach at Cup of Jo.
