BOOK’S FOODIE: Valentine’s Day Candy, vegan style (from Tastemade)


So you’re in love like a Wilson Philips or Ratt song, and you know damn well it is very easy to head to a store and buy your loved one a box of candy for Valentine’s Day. Maybe you’re one of those people who feels like not impressing a loved one, you simply are going to do so with nothing but your charm but it doesn’t hurt to find some chocolates or some kind of sweets. If your loved one happens to have dietary concerts or is vegan, that may be a bit of a problem. It doesn’t have to be, as host Laura Miller shows us in her new segment of Raw. Vegan. Not Gross on the Tastemade channel. If you already make desserts, then making some vegan candy shouldn’t be too hard to do. The recipe can be found on the YouTube page for the video. The not-so-secret ingredient? Coconut butter.

From Vice comes a new episode of Girl Eats Food, and is there a way to get high from chocolate? Maybe not a genuine high but then again, you know how those scientific studies are. You eat a couple of big bars and it’s a gateway to more chocolate and hashish, maybe together. I do not know. Is this meant to be comedic? Informative? Sexy? Yes, maybe, perhaps, I still don’t know. Find out what happens.

BOOK’S FOODIE: Chop & Brew – Episode 15: Making Pie From Scratch


It was my grandfather who once told me “I like pie”, and I love a good pie. In this episode of a show called Chop & Brew, they explain why making a pie from the ground up is much better than anything you could buy that’s store-made. Can you buy one from a good bakery? Sure you can, and you would be showing support but if you can make one, set some time aside to do so. Make one right now.

BOOK’S FOODIE: The benefits of eating chocolate (from TheDailyMeal.com)

The benefits of eating chocolate? WHAT?! I like exploring chocolate when I can, but as with all foods, it has to be done in moderation and of course, within your budget, because some of the chocolates out now can be fairly pricey. Dietician Ashley Koff was interviewed for The Daily Meal to talk about what some of those benefits are, and how to select a good chocolate, along with knowing the difference between a good and bad one, especially for the money. Unfortunately, the embed option wasn’t made available for this so you’ll have to click here to view this six minute video.

Wearing this T-shirt may be a good thing to share your chocolate obsessions.

RECORD CRACK/BOOK’S FOODIE: Pie & Vinyl – Record Store Day 2013 (405tv documentary)


Here’s a video that combines two of my passions: records and food. It’s a short documentary (just under 20 minutes) created by The 405 about a little record store in Southsea, England (just outside of Portsmouth) called Pie & Vinyl Record Cafe. Not only are they a devoted and dedicated record store, but they also serve pies, primarily savory but also occasional sweet pies as well. This was shot this year during Record Store Day, and it’s a chance to find out why they’re devoted to giving people records and pie to people to desire one or the other, or both. This is a store/cafe I would love to visit, not only to try out items in their menu, but to see what kind of vinyl goodies may be lurking.
