Tofu Satay with Peanut Sauce and Pickled Vegetables

We’ve been wanting to make this FOREVER and I finally got the stuff together to do it the other day. It’s a great complete meal but it’s not an authentic Southeast-Asian satay seeing as how we didn’t grill it or even use skewers. We did marinade the tofu in a pretty typical marinade and serve with the sauces and accompaniments you would see in a Thai restaurant. This makes plenty of food and the prep can be done ahead of time; I did the pickled vegetables the night before so they could really soak up the flavor, and you could do the same with the tofu!

Lemon Bars with Blueberry Balsamic Reduction

These are so good– flaky pastry, tart lemon, oozy blueberry. Deceptively easy to make, too, and perfect for summer! We just slopped on the blueberry sauce, but if you were feeling creative, I’m sure these could be decorated even more beautifully.

Oreo Suprise Cupcakes

We had a porch sale this weekend with Ryan and Megan and needed some baked goods for weekend fuel. Meg and I wanted to do cupcakes and these seemed like a great idea! We sold a few at the porch sale, but kept most of them around for ourselves. Jesse likes his cold, but I like them warm! Also, these are really really easy. We cheated big time, but the results are impressive nonetheless.

Lemon Parsley Garlic Bread

We made this beast of a garlic bread the other night and man, oh man, was it good. Seriously, words cannot describe. We had some serious garlic breath, though. This guy is so easy and so impressive and delicious; I think it’s my favorite recipe so far.
