These tofu fries are grilled until crisp and then brushed with BBQ sauce, making for a healthy summer treat. I also have a summer giveaway at the end of this post!

We’ve been continuing to cook and practice with our grill. It’s often hard to get Mr. K to eat healthy, but one thing he really enjoys is baked or grilled tofu fries. The tofu is cooked until the exterior is golden and crisp. I’ve done it several times in the oven and on my George Foreman grill, but this time we put it on our BBQ grill outside.

These oversized cookies and cream cookies are chewy and full of crushed Oreo pieces. This is one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes and I’ve made them a few dozen times with great success.

I posted the original recipe two years ago, so I thought I’d do an updated post. The biggest change is that I made these oversized rather than regular cookies

This past weekend we went to a friend’s BBQ party and I baked two kinds of cookies: the famous New York Times Chocolate Chips Cookies and my chewy cookies and cream cookies. Because the NY Times cookies are so big, I made my cookies and cream cookies bigger to match (Also it was almost 2 am and I was tired and didn’t want to bake several extra batches of regular sized cookies). The cookies seemed to go over well as there were no leftovers for me to take home.

Table No. 10

Table No. 10 opened just a month ago but has already generated a lot of positive feedback. We were recently invited to check out the new restaurant and after one visit, it’s already become one of my favorite downtown restaurants and we can’t wait to return.

The menu starts with an innovative cocktail list. I can’t remember the last time I read a cocktail menu and wanted to try every single drink on it. While I was especially intrigued by a duck fat infused cocktail, for this visit, we chose to share the Flux Capacitor. I do have a weakness for pretty drinks and it made for a nice photo.

Flux Capacitor
Gin, Rosewater, Violet Liquor, Lemon, Honey, Maraschino, Lavender, Dry Ice Served Bubbling In a Beaker for two

As promised, our drinks arrived in a bubbling beaker, like out of a science experiment.

It was sweet, smooth and strong, and a great way to start the evening. Next time I’ll be a little more adventurous.

Crispy Chicken Skin, Salt, Sherry Vinegar

The menu encourages a sharing dinner experience and we complied by ordering solely from the Bites and Small Plates sections. We both love chicken skins and this was a nice little snack. The bowl held plentiful pieces of crispy chicken skins, sprinkled with salt and vinegar, taking salt and vinegar chips to a whole new level.
