Friday means Food Links and we have a whole lot of interesting things for this week.  Besides yummy recipes, you can learn how to make a perfect iced-coffee, a new twist on the grilled cheese sandwich, news about Heinz Ketchup and a lot more…

SNACK EXCHANGE

What is a snack exchange? Simply put…you exchange snacks with someone else around the globe.  Reddit, which is like Digg (but better, in my opinion), has subreddits, which are like categories, and one such subreddit is called “Snack Exchange”. Here you can post where you’re from and where you’d like to obtain snacks from. Ever wanted to try chocolate from Asia? Or potato chips from Ireland?  You can and in return you send a parcel of snacks from your area.

You must sign up for a Reddit account first (which is easy as pie), then you can get your exchange going. I suggest to read up on Reddit FAQ’s and get yourself familiar with posting on the site before actually posting…just so you know the etiquette for the site and how it works.

Here is the Snack Exchange Link to get started.  Happy Snacking!

KOSHER ONLINE MEAT STORE

Boasting hundreds of items, including beef, veal, lamb, chicken, turkey and deli meats, they carry products with the hechsher of Rabbi M. Weissmandl of Nitra, as well as Lubavitch- Crown Heights Beis Din, Montreal Kosher, Khal Yitav Lev of Satmar from Canada, Orthodox Union, Rabbi Shlome Tzvi Shtern – Debritizner Rov and CRC – Hisachdus Horabonim. Oy!

HEINZ KETCHUP TO CHANGE IT’S RECIPE, FANS IN UPROAR

Heinz is planning on tweaking it’s recipe to include…well actually to take out some of it’s salt content. Fans of Heinz have taken to the Heinz Facebook Page to express their concern. Ummm…really?  Heinz has High Fructose Corn Syrup first of all. There’s better ketchups out there, which taste exactly the same. Check for your store brand organic version. These contains no HFCS. If your in the South, Publix has the Greenwise brand. Trust me, it taste no different.

This is just a prime example of people not wanting to embrace change. Even for the better.

Calling all cooks! This is THE wikipedia for cooking. If you haven’t graced the pages with your eyeballs yet…it’s a must see for newbie and avid cooks alike.

INSIDE-OUT GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH

A cheese-a-holic grilled cheese. I can think of other ingredients to add on the outside with the cheese for a bite.  Some garlic powder, fresh chopped dill or fresh chopped tarragon.
