    Taco Tuesday reminds be of my college years. What college student doesn’t love $2 tacos? Now that I’m older and my taste buds have matured tofu tacos are right up my alley.

    I too just found your page – thank you for such an honest look into recovery and self confidence issues. While we may not all be on the same level with these issues you truly speak to us all. I do have a question, maybe I’m blind, but is there an archive of your recipes?? I’ve found myself pages and pages back looking for them all but gladly jumping into your other stories along the way!
