Cauliflower Bites

7 Apr

My parents don’t like cauliflower, brussel sprouts or kale. Growing up, I didn’t try any of these foods. However, towards the end of 2012, I discovered that cauliflower was delicious and healthy. I’ve cooked it in a number of different ways but decided to try something different. I made a “batter” and went to turn on my stove and realized that I was washing my burner covers. #fail

Luckily, I own a mini-cupcake maker that can be used for so many things i.e. corn muffins, regular muffins and cauliflower bites.

Here’s what you need, yields 10 – 12 bites:

1/2 a head of cauliflower, “riced” – you can either grate it down or put it in a food processor

1 garlic clove, minced

Basil or other dried or fresh herb

1 egg white (I would use two for a bigger batch)

Shredded Parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper

1 tsp of extra virgin olive oil

I beat the egg white with the olive oil, herb and salt and pepper. Mix in the shredded cauliflower and cheese. It should be a wet mix but not soupy. You’re not making pancakes. Spray the cupcake maker down with non-stick spray and spoon in the mixture. Let it cook and press down the sides so you can watch them brown. If you can, flip them upside down so the tops can brown but you don’t have to. Serve them hot or warm. You could pair them with a sauce of some sort like a light alfredo. C’est si yum!

Silk Iced Latte Review

5 Apr

Taking a break from entertaining to finally test Silk Soy Milk Mocha Iced Latte! One of my very best friends recommended it and unfortunately, in the Boston area, Shaw’s/Star Market is the only grocery that seems to carry it.

First impression, is that it looks kind of dirty. It actually reminds me of what the water looks like when you rinse out your coffee filter. Looks can be deceiving though! It tastes great, with a subtle mocha and delicious coffee flavor. I didn’t add milk or anything to it but think if it was blended with ice it would be phenom! Definitely check it out!
