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.

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

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.

50 Flexible, No-Stress New Year’s Resolutions

The end of December brings a lot of excitement with it. After all of our various winter holiday festivities, we anticipate the new year while celebrating the one we just had. Some of us do one or the other by throwing a party and/or making resolutions. The general belief we all have about New Year’s resolutions is that they’re difficult to stick to and people rarely complete theirs. This must just mean that we’re making our New Year’s resolutions way too unrealistic to pull off.

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.
