Marinated Tofu

Tofu is under-appreciated.

So many people are quick to jump on how bad it tastes when they don’t realize they just aren’t cooking it right. I’ve heard people say they tried a piece of plain tofu and it was just so awful they would never try it again!

Well yeah, if you eat plain tofu it’s not going to taste good. Same as plain flour or even a bland piece of meat. That doesn’t mean that tofu is always bad though.

So here is this recipe. I actually made this for the first time months ago, took pictures of it, was all ready to post about it, but then it didn’t happen.

Brown Butter Gnocchi and More Local Musicians

Hello hello! So, I know many of you are probably getting a little annoyed with my very frequent posts about music lately, I know I am a food blog above anything else, but I live in Austin. We are kind of known for music.

Anyway, I just wanted to tell you about this really cool band I found recently.

I love a good party. Bust out the apples to apples and make some delicious snacks. Now we’re talking!

Sunday Pot Roast

Monday bloody Mondayyyy!

Wrong day? Woops, my bad.

For some reason that song has been stuck in my head for about 2 weeks now. Everytime I hear, or even think about the word Sunday that chorus line immediately pops into my head.

Roasted Cauliflower and Goat Cheese Soup

Goat cheese. A history.

Sort of. Let me just start out by saying goat cheese is very underrated and at the same time has become very trendy.

Here in America cow’s milk cheese is king. That and the mystery cheese that is “American cheese”. Hello velveeta! But that only makes sense, I mean, we don’t raise too many goats here in America. The main animal products are cows.

Because cow’s milk cheese is so popular nowadays, I feel like goat cheese has become more of an “upscale” ingredient. It’s old news, but people are beginning to revel in the tanginess of goat cheese. It’s cycling back into popularity.

Turkey and Fig Meatballs

I’m finally starting to feel a little more normal after ACL.

I’ve gotten over that first initial exhaustion of being out in the hot sun all day for several days, lack of sleep, and lack of food.
