vegan MoFo: down but not out + papa tofu review

You may have noticed that I haven’t exactly been living up to my MoFo post a day promises lately. In fact, for the better part of the last ten days, I’ve been completely offline. After years and years of emerging unscathed, season after season, I finally succumbed to the dreaded flu. My entire extended family did, in fact. I was the last to fall. I’m just coming out of what has been a really rough ten days and starting to feel myself again. Wow, the flu sucks. I had great plans for this month after my awesome trip to Ohio and came home filled with inspiration despite getting off to a rocky start with food poisoning upon my return (I can’t catch a break!). And more bad news: did I mention my beloved laptop also met an untimely end while I was down with the flu? Death by Gatorade, purchased by my mum in good faith and meant to replenish my electrolytes when I was completely dehydrated. Not meant for your laptop to drink. Bye bye Sony Vaio. You will be missed. But hey, it’s not all bad news.

I had promised my dear friend Kittee a review of her really amazing cookzine, Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food, and gosh darn it if I wasn’t going to rally these last few days and try my darnedest to do her proud. The review was posted last night on Cakemaker to the Stars, so please check it out. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the zine, which you can get here. The zine is really well done and well worth the $9, so please support an amazing vegan and all-around awesome human being, pick up a copy and wow your dinner guests with a genuine Ethiopian feast. And Happy Halloween, everyone!

  1. Oh Marika, I had no idea you were so sick. You are a true friend to bust balls in the kitchen, even on a good day, but coming off flu? You are amazing. Thanks so much!!!


  2. Ah, thank you for reminding me, I really need to crack this zine open! I bought a copy at Vida Vegan, but haven’t yet made anything from it at all. Now that it’s getting colder, it seems like the perfect time for some spicy stews, too. Great review, it’s definitely making me hungry!
