I Found a Great New Food Channel on You Tube!

Hello all 🙂

Sometimes cruising Youtube can be….monotonous. But you watch and you watch and sometime something magical happens. You watch a video, and then another one & then when youtube suddenly flips to another channel, you desperately hit the back button to find the station you were just watching. This is one of those channels that I need to see more of!

Adam Cooks Everything. Yes, you heard it right. This guy is funny as hell and takes his viewers down the rabbit hole when it comes to little known foods. He also conquers some more commonly known foods and hard-to-do recipes made simple.

. Take this video, for example: How to eat Guava paste/ Goiabada at the family picnic. Its barely 4 mins long, but info packed.

And this awesome recipe for fiddlehead chowder. I think I’ve seen these things maybe once in my life, but he does say you can substitute asparagus (of which we have lots available here) and it looks reallllllyyyyy good!

Now, I must admit, although I cringe every time he tosses a knife up in the air – reminiscent of the good ole bartender show days, I love his showmanship. With all the cooking shows out there that have 30 mins of prep and cooking time and too many ingredients paired with way too much talking, the fact that he can simplify a recipe and condense it into a few minutes while being entertaining and interesting , is what got me stuck on this channel. My short attention span, busy schedule & need for entertainment were all appeased. Which makes this perfect! This channel also has a ton of vids on it, many of which are really new! Like only days old 🙂

These videos are not material that is professionally shot. Although the videos are well captured and edited, there is an amateurish appeal to them. One that says I can do whatever I want with this video, its all mine! I like that it is a bit rough around the edges. I feel that with this kind of content though, it is only a matter of time before the channel is  picked up by someone who knows a good possibility when they see one.

I checked out his website’s about me page. Apparently he’s had a love affair with food from a quite young age. He states that he was quite sickly when he was a child and was unable to have normal kid-food. (That makes me so sad. Kid food is awesome!) His mother worked in the food service industry & my guess is that those 2 facts combined, led to an interesting palate for one of such a young age. He is fully grown now (of course) and has 3 children on which he dotes. I bet meal time is so much fun at their house! If you would like to check out his site, you can find it here.

I’m sending a link to this review to Adam Cooks Everything, so Adam, if you’re reading this: Keep up the great work! We’ll be watching! 🙂

Recycled Book Reading Challenge: The Heist by Janet Ivanovich & Lee Goldberg

My July’s recycled book reading challenge book is The Heist by Janet Ivanovich and Lee Goldberg. I really loved this book!

This is the first book of a new series by these authors . I am an Ivanovich fan, so I was happy to see that it is penned with her usual humor.

It begins with Nick Fox, a famous, rich, cunning and unbelievable ingenious thief who has been outrunning Kate O´Hare, an FBI agent, for 7 years! This book involves numerous clever, and quite hilarious capers. Eventually these two find themselves working together. Nick Fox puts things together to bring the main heist together.

The joviality is brought together through an unusual cast of character with a unique set of skills and personalities. It is ingenious and cleverly written, and the action never slows down!

I would highly recommend this book if you are a fan of lightly, humorously written adventure like I am! If you are interested in finding out more about this book or purchasing it, click here to go to Janet Ivanovich’s website.

If you would like to join this awesomely fun challenge, you can see the original guidelines by clicking here. We’ve got some really great bloggers on this challenge, and I hope more will join!

Product Review: Italian Summer Fig Eau de Toilette from The Body Shop

I quite like this product. I usually frequent fragrances which are a bit headier, musky or very light and airy. This is quite light and is named perfectly. It smells very summer day-ish (if thats possible) and has a headier fruity aroma.

One good spritz is enough. I like the packaging because it is compact enough to fit in my clutch, and since one spray doesn’t last an extremely long time, it is nice to have with you.

I must admit however, that I am guilty of giving a spritz or 2 into the entry hall and front rooms when I am expecting company. Smells much better than most air fresheners and it lingers for awhile 😉 It’s a nice little trick.

This product runs at 15 British pounds, 16,90€ or $15 and is available online or in shop via The Body Shop.

What are some of your favourite fragrances?

Thanks for reading!
