Recipe: Peach & Pecan Oat Crumble Bars — Dessert Recipes from The Kitchn

Just after my husband, Mike, was born, his parents bought 40 acres of a retired peach orchard in rural Missouri, with a plan to live off the land and build a more pastoral sort of lifestyle for their children. And while that peach orchard may have been retired from the yearly grind of farming, it still put out a crop of peaches every summer. And that's what my husband ate, as a baby and as a toddler: bite after bite of tangy yellow summer peaches. This early diet clearly left an impression. Peaches? He can't get enough of them.

Recipe: Popeye Pesto Tofu Scramble — But First, Breakfast!

In my never-ending quest to think about quick, simple, protein-heavy breakfasts, I've been experimenting a lot with tofu scrambles over the past few weeks. My main reference for these egg-free scrambles is the one our college dining hall used to make as one of their "breakfast-for-dinner" nights — their version was a Southwest number, replete with huge chunks of red pepper, undercooked onions, and yesterday's leftover beans. Let's just say, the bar was set very, very low.

I always knew there had to be a better way to make this tofu scramble — one that just put the tofu front and center with a nice flavorful pesto and a handful of spinach to complete the meal. With some tweaking and tasting, we've arrived at that very tofu scramble, and I'm excited to share it with you today.
