Friday Top Five – Volume 13: We don’t feel so good…

Here at Fried Tofu we have unfortunately fallen sick as of late; Susan coming down with a stress and lack of sleep related head cold in August (?!?) and Morgan thinking she had appendicitis and going through many tests in the ER one day (turned out to be something else, not just in her head), then was slammed with seasonal allergies. Fortunately we are getting better thanks to some of our remedies listed here in our Friday Top Five. This is what makes us feel better when we are sick or just plain stressed out. Stay healthy out there, fall is on it’s way. Read more

Friday Top Five – Volume 12: Food Apps

My phone is rarely far from my grasp. Everything from the book I am reading, to the food I am eating, to where I am eating it, exists on my phone. I even have a folder dedicated to “Food,” which is filled to capacity with apps. Calorie trackers, recipe finders, grocery list makers, you name, we’ve got it. Here are a list of just a few of our favorites. Happy Friday everyone!

Friday Top Five – Volume 10: Morgan’s Favorite Food Blogs

Having a rather large list if blogs I follow on a regular basis, I thought today’s top five would be just that: A list of my favorite food blogs. One has a bit if an edge, another demystifies going gluten free, but they all have amazing recipes and are at the top of their food blog game. I’m totally jealous of each of them, to say the least.

Friday Top Five: Volume 9 – NYC Food

I’ve been doing a lot of work travel to New York City lately which means I’ve been trying plenty of NYC Vegan food and loosening my belt a few notches. I decided, while Morgan is away on a weekend trip down in St. Louis, that I would hijack this week’s Friday Top Five and bring you my favorite Vegan foods found in The Big Apple. Happy Friday!

Friday Top Five – Volume 8: Arrested Development

Well hello there. Is it time for another Friday Top Five? I think so.

We are always obsessed with Arrested Development and even more-so now that the new season is being released on May 26th!!! In preparation for our Arrested Development Marathon this week our Friday Top Five is dedicated to our favorite Arrested Development quotes, but of course we could not keep it to just 5 – enjoy!

(And for those that haven’t ever watched Arrested Development – start now.) Read more

Friday Top Five: Volume 7 – Cinco de Derby

Break out the tequila and the mint, because this weekend is Cinco de Derby. We will be celebrating by eating lots ‘o’ tacos and guacamole, trying to perfect a mint julep, and watching the most exciting 2 minutes in sports. There will be lost of celebrating going on around Chicago, and everywhere else I would imagine, but these are some of our favorite things inspired by this weekends festivities… Read more

Friday Top Five: Volume 5 (Yay Spring!!)

Ok, this picture is from last year, but I used it to remind me that no matter what, Spring will get here.  It might be still somewhat cold, have rain the forecast for the next 7 days, but the sun will come out, we will feel its warmth on our faces, and it will be awesome. Soon the balmy days and crisp nights will draw us out and about.  Reemerging from our houses and apartments, with anticipation about things to come (farmer’s markets, spring veggies, and having our first meal outside) and we must look our best. So, here at Fried Tofu, we are moving out of our winter standards, and in to our spring routine. Read more

Friday Top Five: Volume 4 – Austin Edition

We just returned from our annual trip to Austin, Texas for South By Southwest. Our purpose of this trip is the music festival, however a huge bonus of being in Austin is the amazing food, people, weather and places to go. We wanted to dedicate this Friday’s Top Five to Austin and SXSW. There are so many great things about this city, it was hard for us to keep it to 5… so we didn’t.

It’s March 1st and spring is  (hopefully) right around the corner!  This means warmer weather, light weight jackets, baseball, starting our gardens, and wearing colors other than black. We can’t wait. So, as a farewell to winter, today’s  Friday Top Five is a nod to some of our cold weather favorites. Read more
