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!

Beef Taco Salad with Avocado-Cilantro-Lime Dressing I'm so excited about the fact that my local Sprouts market started carrying grass-fed beef! It does cost a little more, however several articles, including one from Mark's Daily Apple have helped me to realize that grass-fed beef is more healthful. The reason why it is advisable to choose grass-fed meat is because of a difference in the fat profile. Gras-fed cows have a higher volume omega-3 fatty acids, whereas grain-fed cows have a relatively nonexistent amount due to their diet. Basically, grain-fed cows have a poorer o-6:o-3 ratio fat compared to grass-fed.

Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until meat is tender.

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!

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.
