Ohhh, crap! Valentines day is coming up. You know… dooms-day for singles and cynics alike. I will be writing more on Hallmark’s holiday early next week (I know you can’t wait), but until then, here is a contest for you!
The winner will receive an awesome 6 month membership to Spork Online.
Sporkwhat? Spork Foods is an LA based gourmet vegan food company owned and operated by super sweet sisters Jenny Engel and Heather Goldberg. They offer live cooking classes in LA at Spork Foods, online vegan cooking classes at www.sporkonline.com, one-on-one in-home healthy pantry makeovers, and recipe development/trainings for chefs, food companies and colleges. Their cookbook, Spork-Fed, is currently in stores, with a foreword by fellow fans and sisters, Emily and Zooey Deschanel—the latter of whom I have a ginormous girly crush on although I find the spelling of her name to be inferior. When she plays the ukulele, I get all swoony. And when she makes that joke in 500 Days of Summer about being called “anal girl” in high school, I forgive Joseph Gordon-Levitt for ruining my favorite Hall N Oates song with his upsetting musical number.
I'll show you a spork...
So, Spork Online is an awesome vegan culinary portal where you can view exclusive cooking demos, snag recipes, and ask the sisters themselves questions. The sister-pair teach a different themed cooking class each month, with archived classes for you to watch whenever you want. Win the contest and join for 6 months, free. I love free.
So how do you win?
Here are the steps, they are super easy, just like 10 of the 13 girls I lived with in college. Joking! (ish). You have until V-day to enter! Submit your responses by midnight, February 14 . The winner will be announced on the 15th.
1. First, subscribe to SexyTofu if you haven’t already
2. Like this post. I NEED positive affirmations on the reg, people.
3. Launch me your best pro or anti v-day rant in the comments section. I don’t care if you love it and want to roll around in mounds of cheap, synthetic stuffed animals all day, or if you hate it and plan on calling out sick to eat massive amounts of candy all alone and burn pictures of your ex. Think it’s great? Let me know. Think it’s as brilliant as spreading Sriracha on your genitals? Let me know. (But don’t do that, please.)
And, because the ladies at Spork Foods are so fantastic, they have provided SexyTofu with an exclusive vegan mint chocolate truffle recipe, just in time for V-day. And by exclusive I mean, everyone who bought their cookbook, Spork-Fed, can also see the recipe.
Jenny and Heather are huge V-day fans, not only because love is lovely but because it gives them an excuse to cook with aphrodisiacs. Dark, good quality chocolate is high in anti-oxidants and flavanoids, which amp up blood flow. And I know you know what I mean when I say “blood flow.” Continue reading
