Epic Crispy Quinoa Burgers Topped with Sweet Potato Fries, Beer Caramelized Onions + Gruyere. Ramen Noodle Soup Recipe. Research University. Creamy Cauliflower Soup. Cauliflower – a vegetable I grew up with, and wasn’t often thrilled about. Mom you know I love you, but I do not love the way you like most of your veggies cooked. However, on my quest to enjoy more fresh produce this Winter season, I’m giving it a try again. Cauliflower seems to abound in the markets right now and as fortune would have it, my friend Simone chose a lovely cauliflower recipe for this month’s Donna Hay Styling and Photography Challenge (DHSPC). I enjoy participating in these challenges because they always make me reach and do something new that I might not otherwise try.

In this case, that meant not only the photo but also the recipe featuring heads of cauliflower! This month, Simone challenged us all to make a creamy cauliflower soup, which appeared in Donna Hay issue #51 (June/July 2010) and was photographed by Ben Dearnley. Photographing this image, however, proved to be quite challenging, and I’m not all that pleased with my efforts. Brown Sugar Cookies with Sea Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate. Sigh.

Coconut Crunch Chicken Strips with Creamy Honey-Mango Dipping Sauce

Have you ever really thought about it? It’s often not until I really stop and think about the “mechanics” of something in life purposefully, that I gain a fresh little glimmer of insight into this whole “living life” thing that so utterly fascinates me. And when I asked myself that question of what guides and inspires — informs — the things that I do in my life, I gave some thought, in particular, to those moments when I had felt most fulfilled and creatively joyous over something seemingly little. Perhaps it was a simple and genuine connection with another person that left both of us better off; perhaps it was coming up with a great little surprise for my husband that he never would have anticipated, that I knew he’d really love; or perhaps it was creating a recipe especially for my son, because I thought he’d really enjoy a new take on one of his old faves and get some pleasure out of it.
