On hiatus

I've decided to take a break from blogging for a while. Believe it or not, I haven't been cooking much lately. You know what they say, life gets in the way. If you'd like to be notified when I start posting again, you can sign up for email updates on my sidebar. No spam, I promise, just email notifications of new posts. I hope to be able to share with you the reason for my absence when I return, in the meantime, thanks for your patience and understanding.

Soba noodles with tofu and vegetables

When it's hot outside, the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven. The only cooking required for soba noodles with tofu and vegetables is to boil a pot of water.

This dish is good warm, at room temperature or cold. I loved the combination of flavors, and especially appreciated the fact that it didn't heat up the kitchen.
