1. Butterscotch seemed to have fallen out of fashion, but food writer Rina Rapuano says she’s seeing glimmers of a comeback. And it goes beyond hard candies and instant pudding. The revival of this old-fashioned flavor inspires a crepe cake, a chocolate-crusted tart and more.

  1. Bourbon-Glazed Baked Tofu With Spicy Roasted Red And Sweet Potatoes"I live in a city apartment and have neither backyard nor deck, therefore no access to a grill. This is my attempt to create a smoky, summery, barbecued tofu using just my little urban oven. I incorporated bourbon in the glaze as a nod to my husband who usually likes his over ice (he liked it this way, too) and maple syrup to play off the whiskey’s natural sweetness. The spicy potatoes are a must. To really up the ante, try making a garlic aioli in which to dip them, and serve corn on the cob with herbed butter to round out the meal."Photo Credit: Nicole Spiridakis for NPR Nicole Spiridakis explains how to make an anything-but-rubbery homemade tofu, and shares some delicious ways to prepare it, including:- Hiyayakko (Japanese Cold Tofu) - Shiitake-Spinach Udon - Bourbon-Glazed Baked Tofu With Spicy Roasted Red And Sweet Potatoes - Edamame Herbed Tofu Dip 
and last, but certainly not least, Chocolate-Tofu Pudding!"I like a good, rich chocolate pot de creme as much as the next person. But in the interest of health, I don’t have that particular treat every day (more like once a week). Still, I do like a dessert after dinner, and I always like chocolate. This chocolate-tofu pudding is a revelation. It contains not a drop of cream (if you’re vegan, make sure to get vegan chocolate chips) but is appropriately decadent nonetheless." READ IT ALL HERE —Daisy
