What's Cooking Wednesday - Week 5

I did consider wimping out on this one - after all, tofu was the ingredient!  Never tasted it and it wasn't on my bucket list.  I decided to give it a try anyway and dug around on the internet trying to find something that I thought I could handle.  I came up with this recipe for Tofu Chocolate Mousse from Martha Stewart.

It was very easy to make and wasn't that hard to eat, although it wasn't as sweet as I like my sweets.  A little dollop of whipped cream helped that.  I'm linking up to Judy at Patchwork Times - check there to see what recipes you can try using tofu!

I continue trying to "find the time" in 2013.  In addition to trying new recipes, one goal I had now that I'm retired was to go through some of the crafty books I've purchased over the years and try something new.  For my first attempt, I dug out this book and used the technique to make a little chair pad.

It was a fun to try something new - and it took about 50 feet of 3/16" rope for that little pad.


  1. Way to go Carol! Your Chocolate Mousse looks delish and I love your new chair pad! ~ ann

  2. Very inventive way to "hide" the tofu! Good for you for making the chair pad. My Mom used to braid chair pads out of wool strips. I loved them! Cheers! Evelyn

  3. It looks yummy. For those of us who should cut down on sugar, this looks inviting. Love the chairpad. Your photography reflects your personality - pleasant.
