Spicy Mango Tofu Stir-Fry

Tofu may be the food choice that sends my meat-eating friends running faster than anything else on earth. People can be legitimately disgusted by tofu. And it’s unfortunate, because I’m convinced that much of this disgust comes from eating badly prepared tofu, not unlike if I declared that steak was “disgusting” because I’d received a … Continue reading Spicy Mango Tofu Stir-Fry

Sweet & Spicy Tofu with Coconut Rice

I am one of those strange beings who voluntarily orders tofu at restaurants even though I am not a vegetarian. My girlfriend jokes that I have a natural inclination towards healthy food and that she hates me for it.

When you work in Time … Continue reading Times Square Bites–Lunch for the Budget-Conscious Foodie

It’s been nice to … Continue reading Fear Not the Faux Meat

Happy Tuesday :-D

Getting back into the swing of actually writing consistent blogs is going to be a work in progress for me. The last time I did this, I was driving in circles around the country on my first “official” blogging wanderlust (month-long road trip/quitting of job without a backup plan…where I wrote things down. Yay!) It’s … Continue reading Happy Tuesday 😀
