You know you’ve got a problem when you can’t keep your fingers out of the food processor bowl – and not just for safety reasons. It’s true. I was hungry when I made these. They were damn tasty, which I knew they would be because the filling was damn tasty, which is why I couldn’t…

Pineapple Sweet and Sour Tofu

I feel like every time I buy a pineapple for a recipe, I end up getting multiple dishes out of that one pineapple. It’s just a high mileage fruit like that. It’s also big, and super sweet and flavorful, so you don’t need to use a whole lot of fruit for one dish. Also, lots…
