Happy MoFo!

I've been eagerly awaiting as well as dreading this month. Some things have recently come to light that may consume a lot of my time. BUT, I shall keep my promise and stick to it.

I am coming to you from my bedroom today, with an empty stomach and a freshly cleaned kitchen. I thought I would try something from a cookbook I haven't cracked open yet. Seeing as I built my cookbook collection while still working in the book biz, I have a lot. I could easily use a different cookbook every week, and make at least three things from each. I think that's a reasonable expectation.

My choice for the first week of MoFo is Tofu 1-2-3 by Maribeth Abrams.

I made the Pumpkin Pancakes, which is actually the first recipe in the book. I added walnuts and a little sugar to the batter, and they came out perfectly. I didn't have any maple syrup, so I made a weird Tofutti cream cheese-soygurt-powdered sugar-vanilla sauce,

and then topped the whole thing with berries. I have a ton of leftover batter, so I'll make up more cakes and freeze them. One thing I always forget about pancakes is that I am good for one, and then I am stuffed.
