My Guide to Cooking Amazing Tofu
As a single ingredient, tofu has a lot to offer and it’s worth learning how to cook it well. I’ve gathered together all of my tofu recipes, tutorials, tips, and tricks together into this all-inclusive tofu resource.  You’ll be enjoying amazing tofu dishes in no time!
Why do you need to learn how to cook tofu?
It’s high in protein (13g/serving)
A source of calcium and iron
Mild in flavour making it ideal for marinades
Versatile – it can be baked, sautéed, fried, grilled, you name it!
Quick and easy to prepare – it can be flavoured and prepared in as little as 10 minutes
Very cost effective, 1 block ($2.27) = 4 servings ($0.57/serving)
Tofu has some awesome health benefits too! Studies have shown that eating tofu can help to lower bad cholesterol, and 25g of soy protein per day may reduce the risk of heart disease (in combination with a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.) Check the label and look for non-GMO tofu.

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
