This week I spent a lot of time playing in my kitchen. I even rearranged things to remove the shelf that had been acting as our pantry so that the baby had more space to roam (he's learning to crawl, it's so fun!). I had some wins in the kitchen this week. I had some... not wins. Which basically just means back to the drawing board. Practice, practice, practice, right??
The following is based on recipes from my Trim Healthy Mama cookbook (highly recommend). You need to know that I have a tendency to change up recipes, and I'm usually missing a few ingredients, so I just sort of start with an actual recipe and then try to make my own. Whenever a recipe calls for cocoa powder, I use cacao powder because I find anything else bothers my belly. So far, no issues with cacao powder so we can count that as our first win!
I made a chocolate cake with zucchini. This one is normally a win, but I put too much zucchini in it this time, so I won't give you the recipe just yet!
I've sincerely misunderstood you all these years. I thought you to be an odd, tasteless, and extreme addition to my menu. I thought you would turn me into one of those people who ate tofu. And, well, you have done that. But, I'm not mad about it because... I like you tofu. I really do. I'm not ashamed to say it.
I can fry you with onions and season you and it gives you oh so much flavour. I can put you in salads, or an omelet, or just eat you all by yourself. You're free of all of the foods that make me sick and you give me lots of protein. I can trust you, tofu. I can trust you not to hurt me when so many other foods would.
You're not what I expected, Tofu. I expected gross and you gave me yummy. I expected blah and you gave me pizazz. Forgive me tofu for my misconceptions. Let's be friends.
