Good good links #46

It’s [a hopefully sunny] Sunday and time for the first round of good good links in July. In case you didn’t see I joined Arman’s Sunday fun by sharing some of my own favourite posts yesterday.  Here’s what else caught my eye around the web this week. And psst… I actually tried one of the recipes already. Any guesses?

Happy Sunday!
