Free IKEA ScrapsBook Cookbook

Free IKEA ScrapsBook Cookbook

IKEA has released a free ScrapsBook cookbook available to download on your phone and computer.

IKEA has created The ScrapsBook, in collaboration with chefs from across North America. This cookbook is dedicated to cooking with the little things we usually throw away. Or, as we like to call it, “scrapcooking.”

Scrapcooking is about finding the beautiful possibilities in that banana peel, radish top, or even the chicken bones you’re about to toss, and make the most of everything available to you. It’s little things like these that can add up to make a big difference.

The ScrapsBook features 50 recipes created in collaboration with chefs across North America and waste-saving tips, all designed to help you live a little more sustainably in your kitchen.

You can also join their free IKEA Family before April 14 and you'll entered to win a limited-edition hardcover copy of the cookbook! – Hiffer Marc points out this giveaway is only for Canadians. However, Americans can still download the free cookbook!

This will be the first IKEA product I ever use that doesn't leave me with 10 extra pieces and 14 pointless Allen keys.

Free Black Panther Digital Comic Series

Free Black Panther Digital Comic Series

I've found two different Black Panther comic freebies! First up are over 200 old school Black Panther comics available for free on Comixology as digital copies. This batch of comics includes their entire library of single-issue Black Panther comics.

For something a little newer, Amazon is giving away all 22 issues of the ongoing Black Panther current run by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

From Book 1: A bold new direction for the Black Panther! For years, T'Challa has fought off invaders from his homeland, protecting Wakanda from everything from meddling governments to long-lost gods. Now, he will discover that Wakanda is much bigger than he ever dreamed… Across the vast Multiverse lies an empire founded in T'Challa's name. Readers caught a glimpse of it in MARVEL LEGACY #1. Now find out the truth behind the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda! Ta-Nehisi Coates welcomes aboard fan-favorite artist Daniel Acuña for a Black Panther story unlike any other!

These freebies are presumably a tribute to Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman, who recently passed away in August. I'm not sure how much longer either freebies will be available.

Free Historic Mexican Recipe Cookbooks

Free Historic Mexican Recipe Cookbooks

The University of Texas at San Antonio recently began the massive job of digitizing the largest collection of historic Mexican cookbooks in the United States. UTSA's collection of Mexican cookbooks includes over 2,000 titles stretching as far back as 1789!

UTSA is releasing their work in 3 parts for free and you can start by viewing or downloading the first issue of postres – aka desserts!

In this inaugural edition, we're saving the best for first. Put your baking skills to the test with classic Mexican desserts. These age-old recipes for baked bananas, rice pudding, chestnut flan, and churros will hit the sweet spot.

This first issue contains an 1831 recipe for rice pudding and a churro recipe written shortly after the Mexican Revolution. It's pretty rare when my job intersects with my love of all things history!

Next is their second issue – drinks!

Raise a glass to a collection of delicious Mexican beverages! These recipes will come in handy whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or looking for a warm drink for the cool days to come. ¡Salud!

The third and final edition on Main Courses should release soon.

Free Cookbook Publishing Kit

Maybe its just because I work as a production editor with textbooks, but whenever I see the words “publishing” or “book,” I feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and I reach for a bottle of whiteout and the Pilot Precise V7 Fine Rolling Ball red pen that's perpetually behind my right ear, ready at a moments notice to editify. No, not the bottle of whiteout, the pen.

So when I saw this free cookbook publishing kit, complete with the software, publishing guide, and sample cookbooks? I just about nearly squee-ed with joy. Till I realized that “squee-ed” and “editify” aren't real words and I tried to whiteout them on my computer monitor…

I think I might need help.
