Food Day: Sweet Lovin' Edition

Happy Food Day lovers and friends, here's what's new in the world of food:

I like roses, but the chocolate tastes better: Much like New Years and champaigne and Thanksgiving and Turkey, Valentine's Day is pretty synonymous with chocolate. If you're flipping through the food pages today you'll find plenty of articles on the sweet stuff. The Washington Post alone has three, ranging from chocolate of the hot liquid variety, to chocolate of the milk variety.

The NYT food section also has a good piece on milk chocolate, which seems to be quite in right now.

If you'd prefer to actually do something with your chocolate however, you might want to check out the Boston Globe's food section which has a wealth of quality recipes.

Spice up your dinner: Forget spicing things up in the bedroom, the kitchen is still king when it comes to turning up the heat. The Denver Post has a great article about the science of spice; why we like it and exactly what it does to and for us.

I've got 99 problems but food ain't one: Apples and I may not be perfect, but we see eye to eye on the important stuff, like food. Unfortunately not everyone has this luxury. The NYT food section addresses the phenomenon of mixed culinary couples.

I can't imagine how hard this would be on a relationship. Especially some of the cases the article brings up, such as omnivores dating vegans, people who eat everything dating people who eat three or four things, or people who are strict Kosher dating those who are not. I guess that just means I'm a pretty lucky Bananas.

I'm (kind of) a vegetarian, and my boyfriend is kind of a picky carnivore, but it all works out because neither of us cook, so we fend for ourselves.

How can it be? Someone who loves food as much as I do.
