Yeah, so here in Atlanta we are coming out of one of our biggest snowstorms. Yep, you heard it right, 'Atlanta' and 'snowstorm', both in the same sentence! Now with this comes the weatherman and city leader's advisement to stay indoors. Ahhhh yes, all five of us, in this house, all day, all night, for two whole cabin-fevered days. Don't get me wrong, I love my family, God knows I do! But surely goodness and mercy, I need a break! So what calms my nerves like nothing else will? Cooking!! But with the roads not clear, I'd have to wait until around lunchtime on day 2 to make it out and to the store safely to and fro. Taking a mental note of what staples we have left in our kitchen, I notice out of the corner of my eye, my son Aidon, mock-hosting his own cooking show at the table with a boiled egg, turkey bacon, cheese, and two slices of bread. I mean, he is really getting into it! Right then I decide that instead of scolding him for making an utter mess in my kitchen, I would indulge him instead, and encourage his culinary creativity and film it creating this vlog post!
You've seen the finished product above, check out the videos below which are the 'rough-cut' with all the commentary. Enjoy, and remember that kids are watching everything we do, so be careful to motivate and encourage their creativity!

Ok, so I'm new at this whole video starring and posting racket, so bear with me, lol! However, having my daughter in the second video 'The Logi Crunch!' helped calm my nerves a bit! But like anything to be done successfully and victoriously, practice makes it happen! So there's more where these came from!
This particular tofu recipe has been in my family for some years now and used to be consumed by us almost every week. But too much of anything is not good, so we stretched out our soy bean fav to around once a month. And still, when it's on the menu it's always a crowd pleaser for fingers big and small. Using the cornstarch instead of a flour breading allows for maximum crispness and crunch without that overpowering 'bready' consistency flour or corn meal tends to give. This also allows for the lighter airy texture. What I love most about this recipe is that even though it's 'quick fried' it's not as bad on the waistline. Also as a kid I adored tofu in its various preparations and it makes my heart smile to see my kids, even the finickiest of them- my daughter Logan, enjoying them just as much.
So please enjoy these 'vlogs' below, and be sure to comment and let me know if there are other recipes you'd like me to test in AC Art of Food's Test Kitchen Sunday!
Enjoy, and make it a Great Tasting Day!
Remember, SHARING is caring!
