Roasted Cauliflower White Pizza Dip Time to get sneaky. With cauliflower and lots and lots of cheese! Guys, this dip? It’s like eating one giant pile of cauliflower…. Covered in cheesy white pizza! It’s the healthier version of white pizza dip, but you don’t even realize it. Really, you don’t. Yep, you guessed it, even the brothers ate it. They ate cauliflower! Craziness. Of course, they had no clue, but they ate it and that in itself is practically a miracle. I do blame the cheese. It’s SO cheesy. So, so, so cheesy. It’s the perfect football dip, healthified…. well just a tad. I did say just a tad. This is so adaptable too. My favorite thing is adding in sun-dried tomatoes and then topping the dip with olives and pepperoni’s. So freakin’ good.

pool side - StumbleUpon How do you make bread even better? You stuff it with pepperoni and cheese. Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce. This is the perfect thing to bring to a party (and I did, where it disappeared quickly!) or to eat during a football game. Or, make it for dinner and serve with a salad. This bread takes a little bit of time to prepare, but in about half an hour I had filled my bundt pan with little dough balls, each with a piece of pepperoni and cheese stuffed within it. My new definition of bliss: warm dough with a cheesy center and a bite of pepperoni.

Six More Sauces Everyone Should Learn How to Make Jalapeno Popper Dip recipe We were just beginning to date when he made spaghetti with meat sauce that had a whopping two pounds of meat in it! Growing up as the youngest of ten kids, we had spaghetti every Sunday for dinner. Although there may have been some meat in the watery spaghetti sauce when my older siblings dished up their plate, by the time I dug into the sauce there sure wasn't any. My husband's spaghetti, thick and full of savory meat, was completely on the other side of the spectrum. Thus my introduction to "Man Food" and a cuisine future consisting of Buffalo wings, burgers, Philly cheese steaks, and anything that made my mouth burn and my eyes water. I knew when I made this Jalapeno Popper Dip that it fit in the "Man Food" category and would definitely be husband friendly. You can make this Jalapeno Popper Dip with just a little heat or you can double the jalapenos for the spice-lovin' men in your life. Christy has fun cooking with her three boys and hungry hubby!
