Some good homestyle eating today, in our Delicious Links: collards and cornmeal, DIY thin mints, a cupcake for maple syrup fiends. Also, a "truly manly tea insulation device."
• Collard Greens and Cornmeal Dumplings - At Anson Mills, a fabulous resource for quality grains.
• Homemade Thin Mints - Can't wait for the Girl Scouts to come around? Try making Thin Mints yourself.
• China Teapot with Steel Cover - On a recent tea cozy post, reader davewells said that he had never found a "truly manly teapot insulation device." We think this steel version might do the trick. (via Mighty Haus)
