The Internet Kitchen: Cookin’ Music

by Nick

I pretty much always listen to music while I’m cooking. I actually have a hard time just cooking in silence.

There has been some really awesome albums that came out this year that I’ve been jamming to while in the kitchen so I thought I would share them.  Here are five albums that came out this year that I can’t stop listening to.

Alabama Shakes – Boys and Girls
(Sample Song: Hold On)

Edward Sharpe and Magnetic Zeros: Here 
(Sample Song: Man on Fire)

The Lumineers: The Lumineers
(Sample Song:  Flowers in Your Hair)

Mumford and Sons: Babel
(Sample Song:  I Will Wait)

Japandroids: Celebration Rock
(Sample Song: The House That Heaven Built)

If you have some great albums (new or old) that you love to listen to while you cook, leave a comment!

No poll this week because I’m traveling most of next week.

Pistachio Brittle – I’ve been obsessed with pistachios lately. I haven’t cooked anything with them because I tend to eat all of them before I can actually use them in a recipe. (@ Brown Eyed Baker)

Hot Chocolate on a Stick – I love looking at Heather’s desserts because they seem easy to make even if they look ridiculously good. Her book is also great. (@ Mod Cloth Blog)

Sweet Potato Skins – Who doesn’t love a good potato skin? I’ve never had the sweet potato version, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t also be delicious. (@ Sippity Sup)
