I promised you all this simple tofu recipe! It’s super cheap (yay tofu!), relatively easy and quite delicious! Panko is such a great ingredient and so is tofu – both are so versatile.

Like most cute 3-year-olds, Mazen has his share of funny phrases. Cinnamon Swirl Bread is known as “cinnamon squirrel bread” around here, and we dare not correct him it is just so cute!
