Tofu Tour: Mini Veggie Quiches

The next stop on our tour is mini tofu quiches! When choosing these recipes, my main goal has been variety. I want to show several ways one can enjoy tofu, even when one of the steps is to blend it into a purée. That’s not very appetizing to think of but bear with me because this recipe does not disappoint. I’d say these quiches are one of those recipes that you could set down in front of someone and they wouldn’t know the difference between it and the real deal.

To create these delicious masters of deception you’ll need…

Tofu Tour: Very Easy Vegan Curry

We’re exploring the different ways we can enjoy tofu and the next stop on the journey has a delightful kick. This was my first time making curry, and I was a little bit intimidated. I’ve heard talk of it from more sophisticated palates all my life, but I’m not entirely sure if I even really knew what it was until making it this weekend.

Curry is an all-encompassing term referencing a variety of recipes from the Indian subcontinent and South Asia. The linking factor is that all curry dishes feature a complicated mixture of herbs and spices that typically include hot chilies. There are dry curries out there, but our recipe is the saucy kind!

50 Things to Do When It’s Just Too Dang Cold Outside

The Spokane area has been chilly since late November, and January (unsurprisingly) hasn’t done us any favors either. Compared to the rest of the country, we’re pretty lucky to stay just above freezing most days, but that doesn’t mean we like facing the cold any better. While Spokane has a myriad of amazing outdoor winter activities to offer, that’s not everyone’s ‘cup of tea.’ Some people’s ‘cup of tea’ is an actual cup of tea by a warm fire inside, away from the cold. The following list is for those people once they get tired of lounging by that fire and want some ideas for what else they could do indoors this winter:

Tofu Tour: Vegan Roasted Veggie and Tofu Buddha Bowl

Tofu is one of those funny foods that everyone seems to say the same thing about. Usually, that thing is along the lines of, “it doesn’t really taste like anything.” While it’s true that plain tofu on its lonesome is pretty underwhelming, the same could be said about bread, and we find plenty of delicious ways to dress up and eat that. Unlike most bread, however, tofu is both a nutrient dense food and an excellent source of protein.

DIY Mini Candles

As the temperatures drop, you might find yourself wearing two sweatshirts huddled under a pile of blankets in your living room, refusing to turn on the heat because your apartment has expensive baseboard heating and you’re a stubborn penny-pinching warrior. No? That’s just me? Well, all right.

In addition to my four sweatshirts and mound of blankets, I like to light candles. Now, I don’t know if candles add that much heat to space, but I’m all for the placebo warmth and pleasant ambiance. Candle season is one of the only good things about cold weather. They bathe a room in warm natural light, make me feel cozy, and they have such pleasant aromas.

Because of my love of candles, I decided to make mini ones of my own out of wax and crayons. Now, these candles won’t fill a room with lovely caramel apple or freshly carved pumpkin smells, but they will look adorable as a glowing miniature set of three on my dining room table. Want to make your own custom mini candles? It’s super simple.

With Halloween tomorrow, October had one last weekend open for pumpkin carving. There are lots of questions you have to ask yourself when embarking on this spooky and goopy adventure.

Speaking as someone who doesn’t see the value of planning until I inevitably come across an obvious problem, these are helpful questions to think through before diving in.
