An Obsession with All Things Handmade and Home-Cooked

Eating My Words

Next time I decide to publicly renounce all contests and recipe competitions, maybe I’ll at least wait until I get confirmation about whether I really did lose or not. However, the embarrassment is a small price to pay for being picked as one of six finalists for the Budget Recipe Challenge, so I’ll happily eat my words this time around. I’m hoping that my dish will be much tastier though, so check out the recipe which includes a lemon ginger tofu to serve alongside your miso bulgur pilaf.  I’d love to hear your thoughts, and after the dishes are washed and put away, would you be so kind as to vote for me, too?
