The Lucky Penny Blog: The BEST Cauliflower Crust Pizza!

The Lucky Penny Blog: The BEST Cauliflower Crust Pizza!
Yep. I'm making that claim and I'm sticking with it. This IS the BEST cauliflower pizza crust you will ever make. I've worked out the kinks from my previous cauliflower crust and from all other cauliflower crust posts I've read, and I'm confident that this pizza, this very one here, with a crust made out of a vegetable, is so damn delicious that you won't even think twice about the whole crust being made out of a vegetable thing. And yes, you can slice it and pick it up like a real piece of pizza. Now, let's hold hands and dance. If, despite my description and the holding hands and dancing, you are still feeling a little weird about the whole cauliflower crust thing, or maybe it was the holding hands and dancing that got you feeling weird? SO, what are you waiting for?!!! Oh, yeah the recipe. Let's get going... Place a pizza stone in the oven, or baking sheet if you don't have a pizza stone. Wash and throughly dry a small head of cauliflower. Dumped cauliflower into a bowl. FAQs: Related:  MeatlessNew Diet

Bakers Royale » Raspberry and Chocolate Ripple Semifreddo Raspberry and Chocolate Ripple Semifreddo Want to know the best thing about semifreddo? It’s basically a no-churn ice cream recipe, but still creamy—it just never really gets hard. Which is fine by me, since I like soft ice cream—whether it’s the trashy Thrifty store brand I grew up on or good quality ice cream that I’ll mash and push around with my spoon until it softens. Obviously, I’m not a picky ice cream eater. Although that shouldn’t be mistaken that I don’t know the difference between the two. So how does this semifreddo stack up? Printthis recipe Saveto recipe box Raspberry & Chocolate Ripple Semifreddo Ingredients: 4 oz. chocolate2 tablespoons butter8 oz. raspberries2 large eggs1 large egg yolk3/4 cups sugar + 2 tablespoon sugar1 1/2 cup heavy cream1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract) Directions: Preparation: Line a 9x5 loaf pan with plastic wrap leaving a two inch over hang on each side.

Carrot Cake Pancakes Share on Pinterest How I love a stack of hot of the griddle, drenched in syrup, fancy pancakes! Here’s a recipe you are definitely going to want to add to the weekend mornings breakfast rotation. If you were wondering why I decided to soak the carrots overnight with the buttermilk and sugar, it’s because I wanted to give the carrots a head start softening and I thought adding the sugar would help draw some of the natural sugars out of the carrots (but really what do I know, I just experiment and if it tastes good then something scientifically genius must have happened =).

Chocolat, café, poivre long et piment d'Espelette. Pour la soirée du 31 décembre, nous avons invité des amis à la maison. Ils m’ont tous proposé d’amener une partie du repas, ce que j’ai accepté avec joie. Ma seule mission pour la soirée : préparer le dessert. Mission acceptée : les desserts, c’est ce que je préfère ! Allez savoir pourquoi, cette mission a commencé à prendre une ampleur démesurée au fur et à mesure que je gambergeais. Lorsque j’ai tout un repas à faire, je n’ai pas le temps de me poser trop de questions et je choisis le menu en fonction de ce que je connais du goût des invités, du temps dont je dispose et des envies du moment. Après les bûches, le Christmas Pudding et les futures galettes des rois, je voulais un dessert plus léger, et surtout quelque chose qui sort de l’ordinaire. J’ai rapidement opté pour une mousse au chocolat, mais pas n’importe laquelle. Le dernier jour de l’année était l’occasion ou jamais de tester un accord nouveau, à savoir, chocolat et poivre long. Mousse au chocolat et au poivre long
