Read This: ReadyMade's Feast

​Funny, the more time we spend sailing the blogosphere, the more we appreciate paper. Like the new album from She & Him. Yeah, we could have downloaded it from iTunes, but we had to own it, if only for the cover art -- and the feeling of buying something and holding it in your hands.

Ditto for the latest issue of ReadyMade, a huge favorite/guilty pleasure here at Chow Bella.

What can be bad about having Todd Oldham show you how to make a toilet seat cover? (Or the like.) Seriously, the photos, the newsy/handy tidbits, the weight of the paper -- this is why we are constantly obscured by piles in our office (ok, and home) and worried the Hoarders producers will show up at any moment.

​It's worth it. The current RM (still on newsstands, we found ours at MADE Art Boutique, 5th and Roosevelt streets in Phoenix) happens to have a food theme -- including gorgeous art and instructions on how to keep honeybees, mix sausage, raise hens and roll pasta. Ah, magazines.

But then, you know, you discover a blog so delightful, so delcious, that you get that whole blog thing, too. And the act of bookmarking can be almost as satisfying as buying a mag. (Almost.)

No no, we're not talking about ourselves, though we do hope you're enjoying Chow Bella.

Today it's all about Feast, ReadyMade's food blog.

From a YouTube video of how to open a beer to an intense discussion of broccoli rabe to an ode to the Egg Cream (which, curiously, contains neither), the blog has a lot of what we love about our favorite DIY mag.

Now, if you'll excuse us, we have some reading to do.
