Roasted Cauliflower

These thick cauliflower steaks are fabulous next to a green salad, and have enough flavor that you won’t even miss the meat. If you want to make this a vegan meal, you can add nutritional yeast on top or you can use cashew cheddar.


1 head of cauliflower, cleaned, and sliced into thick steaks (about one to one and a half inches, in one head you can probably get 4-5 slices depending on thickness and ease of cutting)

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

1/4 cup cheese of choice (I used parmesan)

Olive oil, for greasing and for spreading on cauliflower steaks, about 2 tablespoons

Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a shallow baking dish or parchment paper, place cut cauliflower steaks. Top with olive oil. Top with cheese and panko bread crumbs. Roast for 15-20 minutes.  Top as desired with more cheese, salt and pepper.  Service with a fresh green salad.

This is a simple, perfect recipe that really feels like winter.

Kale Chips with Crisped Parmesan

I have been on a kale chip craze this week and experimenting with new flavors. What kind of kale chips do you guys usually make?


4-5 cups kale, chopped, tough stems removed, washed, and dried

1/4 cup shaved parmesan

Salt, as desired, optional since parmesan is salty

Pepper, as desired

Coconut oil spray, coconut oil, or olive oil


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray pan with oil of choice and spread kale in a thin layer on top. Top with more sprays of coconut or olive oil and salt and pepper as desired. After 10 minutes of baking, top with parmesan cheese and bake for a couple more minutes until cheese is melted and crispy.

She’s charming in my favorite way. You may notice her pins from Pinterest (Spinach Artichoke stuffed grilled cheeses, bacon and pancakes, white rose cakes, jalepeno muffins, smashed avocado on buttery French baguette). Explore your heart away on this lovely food blog. Joy is perfection and deserves every ounce of success headed her way. She’s lovely.

Cookie and Kate

Good, great, fabulous food blog. Her blog is the simple style I like. She is also a blogger that focuses on good whole foods, and I like that her images are so crisp and delicious,that you want to get cooking. Her Chai Coconut Ice Cream seems incredible and fun to make, as well as her homemade larabars. That will be this weekend’s project. I feel as though I need to make up for lost time since last week I was recovering from some back surgery, and I haven’t even been able to work out really. It has been affecting my mood quite a bit since it is the way I release stress,and it is so routine that it feels as though a part of me is missing somewhat. Let’s hope for a better weekend this time around. A week is so long and so short at the same time.

Happy reading, readers!
