This Is the Secret to Cooking Seriously Delicious Tofu

Health
In Portland, Oregon, in the 1990s, tofu was as common as hacky sacks and burning incense. My first experience with it as a freshman at Reed College left something to be desired. I’d ordered my go-to sausage-egg scramble at the local diner, where breakfast was four bucks. Somehow my order got swapped out with someone’s tofu scramble, and I won’t soon forget it: Gummy, falling-apart white gunk mingled with soy sausage and greens.

Worried about sending your kid out into the world? You should be.As it stands, about 1 in 5 U.S. children don't meet baseline levels for financial literacy proficiency, according to the often-cited PISA 2015 Financial Literacy assessment.That can become an issue when they need to make a budget, find affordable housing or start repaying college debt — otherwise known as "adulting." Not surprisingly, students who are required to take personal finance courses have better average credit scores and lower debt delinquency rates as young adults, according to data from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority's Investor Education Foundation, which seeks to promote financial literacy.A new parents, kids and money survey from T. Rowe Price also found that young adults who received some financia
