Things I'm Lovin'

♥ In honor of Valentine's Day here are some things I'm loving right now:♥  

1. Beyond obsessed with the new Bon Iver album. It's on repeat non-stop.

Fun fact: the name Bon Iver is derived from the french saying Bon Hiver, meaning good winter.

2. Loving Video Games by Lana Del Rey. It's dramatic, sexy, and fun.

There seems to be a debate going on about whether she is actually talented or  a completely manufactured (fake) pouty lipped product of a record label. Pitchfork has a good review of her full album. Regardless, I'm loving the single.

3. This steak from last night's dinner at Lasher's.

The food here was delicious but a little on the pricey side. Good thing we had a Groupon!

4. Mark Bittman's recipe for Mexican Chocolate Tofu Pudding.
3/4 cup sugar
1 pound silken tofu
8 ounces high-quality bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon chili powder, or more to taste
Chocolate shavings (optional).
1. In a small pot, combine sugar with 3/4 cup water; bring to a boil and cook until sugar is dissolved, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly.
2. Put all ingredients except for chocolate shavings in a blender and purée until completely smooth, stopping machine to scrape down its sides if necessary. Divide among 4 to 6 ramekins and chill for at least 30 minutes. If you like, garnish with chocolate shavings before serving.

I'm going to drastically reduce the amount of sugar and most likely use agave instead of granulated white sugar.

Happy Love Week! What are you doing for Valentine's Day?

Peace, love, and happiness!
