Celebrate SoyFoods Month with Nutty Cookies

Soy_Kristin_Slider_IFFPI like to think myself of someone with a sense of adventure. I’ve zipped across Wild Canyon in Los Cabos, Mexico, and swam next to a Hawaiian Sea Turtle while snorkeling in Maui. Ask me to taste-test tofu, however, and I was likely to run for the hills!

But that was before I had a chance to cook with Iowa Girl Eats blogger Kristen Porter.  She assured me that tofu is not as scary as I thought. Kristen guided me through the what, why and how of all things tofu. She even helped me whip up Tofu and Vegetable Stir Fry for lunch. I admit, it was good!

SoyFoodsInfo 2My family, on the other hand, still prefers that I bake (rather than cook) with soyfoods. My son is especially glad that I discovered soynut butter, so he can enjoy his favorite treats again like Scotcheroos and chocolate covered peanut butter balls. The day of Kristen’s visit, we enjoyed Soynut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert.
