Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Cauliflower Crust Pizza
I came across this cauliflower crust pizza on Pinterest, and was instantly intrigued. A low-carb pizza? Sign me up! I was skeptical, of course, but curious enough to try it and see how it tasted. I was pleasantly surprised by the results. Now obviously, it is not quite the same as a traditional piece of pizza with soft, chewy crust, but it’s a great substitute when you’re watching your carb intake. My husband isn’t a huge fan of cauliflower, so I planned on making the pizza before he got home from work. So the general conclusion…Healthy, tasty and husband-approved? Cauliflower Crust PizzaYields: 1 serving* Ingredients: 1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese* 1 egg, beaten 1 tsp dried oregano 1/2 tsp crushed garlic 1/2 tsp garlic salt Olive oil (optional) Pizza sauce Mozzarella cheese, shredded Other additional toppings of your choice *Many people have commented and said that the amount of cheese can be reduced by half, and still taste just as good!

50 Amazing Zucchini Recipes (for Sneak Some Zucchini on to Your Neighbor's Porch Day) (Originally posted with 20 Zucchini Recipes; updated with more favorites in August 2013.) It may not be an official government holiday, but gardeners everywhere celebrate August 8 as Sneak Some Zucchini on to Your Neighbor's Porch Day. Several years ago I did a zucchini round-up in honor of the day, but since then I've made so many more recipes with zucchini that I decided to give that post a make-over and update it with some of my new favorites.

Beverages Easy Strawberry Mango Smoothie Homemade Slow Cooker Chicken Stock Homemade Slow Cooker Chicken Stock Growing up I remember my mom making chicken soup from scratch. The smell and taste of freshly made soup is pretty amazing no matter the variety. It was almost always done within a few days of having a big turkey or chicken dinner. Okay, I guess if it was a turkey then the soup would really be more like turkey noodle soup but whatever… you get the idea – poultry soup. That just doesn’t have the same ring to it though. recipe: buffalo chicken ring I love all things made with Frank’s Red Hot (or any hot sauce, really. But especially Frank’s Red Hot) I also love cheese. And crescent rolls. And ranch dressing. So this recipe?

Chocolate Therapy: Crockpot Chicken Tacos I'll keep this short and sweet: this is one of my all time favorite recipes. If there is one crockpot recipe you need in your repertoire, this is it. But truthfully, after making it once you won't even need the recipe because it's just so darn easy. Three ingredients and almost zero work. The result is a juicy, flavorful shredded chicken that makes some killer tacos. Recipe for Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake When I noticed how many people are visiting my round-up of 20 Zucchini Recipes I knew it was time to share this fantastic new zucchini recipe called Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake, recommended by my sister Pam. She found the recipe in Penzeys Back to School 2011 Catalog , where it was submitted by Karen Niessing. Pam changed the recipe a little and then I changed it a tiny bit more, and we were both impressed with how this very basic idea of tossing zucchini with a few fresh and dried herbs and cheese and then baking it can produce a dish that's so delicious. I could make an entire meal of this, but it would also be perfect as a zucchini side dish, and Pam told me she ate some of her leftovers for breakfast one day. If you have zucchini from your garden or the farmers market, you must try this!

Homemade Chicken Nuggets These homemade chicken nuggets had the right texture, flavor and consistency of a standard McDonald’€s Chicken McNugget. However, it still tasted leaner (healthier) probably because I trimmed all the fat off the chicken pieces. Scroll to the end of this post for the printable recipe. Avocado Fries Oh dear. I never should have done this. This may be one of my biggest mistakes all year. Can’t take it back now. Vegetarian Recipe: Zucchini Gratin Vegetarian Recipe: Zucchini Gratin Perfect as a cheesy side dish or the main event, zucchini gratin is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. The recipe is simple, but also versatile – you could replace two of the zucchinis with yellow squashes, or pick different cheeses based on your preferences. Swiss, Gruyere, and mozzarella would all make great substitutes for cheddar in this recipe – even a little pepperjack for some added kick would be tasty.

Nutella Cinnamon Rolls May 10, 2011 | Print | E-mail | Filed under bread, nutella There are some days that I just lose my appetite. It might be because of my mood, or that nothing sounds good, or that I’m in a food rut again and need to spice things up a bit. When my appetite comes back though, what I’m inevitably craving is some sort of comfort food. Yesterday happened to be one of those days, and by the end of the day all I could think about was a warm cinnamon roll fresh from the oven. Fortunately, over the weekend I whipped up a batch of my go-to recipe…only this time, I halved the recipe so that I’d only get 3 pans of rolls instead of 6.

Crusty Bread Recipe There’s just something about the smell of fresh baked crusty bread that makes you feel at home.

But what if I told you you could get the best homemade crusty bread ever without needing any gadgets, machines or even kneading the dough? That’s correct, NO KNEADING!

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits (a la "Red Lobster") Recipe TGIF, friends. Hope that you all have had a lovely week, and that a relaxing weekend lies ahead.

OH, and the thing I’m perhaps most excited about — choir-directing.
