We had friends over for a small barbecue for Memorial Weekend.  It was a fun afternoon of games and cards and catching up.   We were laughing so hard at times that our faces were sore.  I tried out a few new recipes on them that I’ll be sharing with you all over the next few weeks and this recipe is one.  Let me apologize for the picture of this potato.  I had several made and all great but I lost my light on Memorial Day so I saved a couple to take pictures of for you all.  As I ran out the door to chaperone my son’s field trip to tour Portland’s bridge,s I called out to my husband, “Don’t eat the potatoes or ribs until I [Read more...]

When I start to think about planning a party or to have friends over for dinner the first thing I start to plan is dip.  We all LOVE dips, that why there are so many of them.  How many times have you had a party and while you were mixing the last dip to put out your friends were crowded in the kitchen to get a taste.  I’m a huge fan not only because of the taste but I love to have things done ahead of time and with most dips you can get then at least prepped ahead of time or the really great dips, like this Cheesy Roasted Corn and Black Bean Dip, they taste better if you make them the day before.  All the flavors start their own party in the bowl waiting of you!

Loaded Cauliflower Casserole

Loaded Cauliflower Casserole

Loaded Cauliflower Casserole is unbelievably tasty and full of fantastic flavor! I love that is tastes like loaded potatoes, but without all the carbs! I was having dinner with my five year old daughter and she loved it too! She said that it was so delicious and asked me to make it again! I love cauliflower and when mixing it with some of my favorites, bacon and cheese, it makes a wonderful combination! Loaded Cauliflower Casserole is a perfect side dish or lunch! I am excited that I have all the ingredients to make it again this week! We had a really busy weekend filled with a lot of baseball games and since I ate quite a few cheeseburgers and plates of french fries, I at least should get some veggies in this week. I will ignore the not-so-healthy bacon and cheese part since I will at least be getting a lot of protein, right?!?!
