A while back I posted on Instagram about how much I love Chinese eggplant with garlic sauce. Unfortunately no one else in my family likes eggplant, so I wanted to convert this recipe to something everyone would eat. In this case, tofu. Even my dog likes tofu actually – no issue with the hot pepper flakes either!

I also wanted to simplify the recipe as much as possible, to see if the sauce can be mixed together all at once and then dumped into the fry pan. It can!

In faint gray letters, that says 49 beats per minute.

A fit person’s resting heart rate. Mine.

I didn’t always have that. In my late twenties and much of my thirties, I was in and out of the hospital with pneumonia and lung bleeds.

Here’s my Best Lemon Bar recipe. It’s easy to make. There are few steps, ingredients that are in every pantry, a measurable amount of lemon juice (vs. the imprecise “juice of X lemons”) and most important, it has a good ratio of tart lemon to buttery crust. Read the rest of this entry »

Last weekend, I spoke about my dad’s book, Fixing the Food System: Changing How We Produce and Consume Food.

I discussed what the book meant to my dad in the context of his career as a food policy journalist. My stepmom spoke about poverty, hunger and nutrition advocacy in the past; and a friend of my dad’s spoke about the path to solutions today. Read the rest of this entry »

Basking in the sun before going in the freezer #kidseateverythinginsight They're very good, but I prefer the classic recipe on the back of the #nestletollhouse chocolate chip bag. These are the #saltedbuttershortbread #chocolatechipcookies of @alisonroman which food blogger @horneandoalgo asked bakers to comment on today, Feb 20. She'll later publish the collected opinions. I also prefer the classic recipe over the giant crinkled panbanging chocolate chip cookies #galletitas #develandoelmisterio Whole grain turkey red and hard white wheats, 85% h2o. 
Bulked 24 hrs fridge, 11 hrs RT
Final proof 1.5 hrs RT, 9 hrs fridge
Yay for the refrigerator as I've had lots of spur of the moment long weekend activities!
