Even when I started school it was half day so I still got another year of time alone with mom, forever tying me to her apron strings.

Over the top Roasted Cauliflower
the method of roasting vegetables is all the rage these days.I have tried this with several vegetables
but was only really pleased with a few of the results. I like that fact that it often mellows the taste and makes the vegetable sweeter but I also think that it dehydrates the vegetables making them a little to dry.
week I tried my first roasted cauliflower with a drizzle or two of olive oil
and some salt and pepper. I thought it was okay. Not to be repetitive, the part I liked most was that the flavor
kind of mellowed and it tasted sweeter.The part I didn’t like was that it seemed dried out to me.
I took a local road trip with a girlfriend to a farm stand.What caught my eye was this huge head of
fresh from the field cauliflower.When I
say huge, I mean that it took up my entire reusable grocery bag.Once cored and washed it filled three large
colanders to the brim.It was nice and
creamy in color and very crisp.
By the time I finished unpacking all my items gathered from our trip and cleaning the vegetables for cooking and storage it
was very close to dinner time. With all that cauliflower on hand, I thought I might try roasting it
again with a mixture of wet ingredients that I often put on my chicken before
grilling it in the summer.It turned out
very delicious and coating the cauliflower seemed to hold in some of its
moisture making it more palatable to the tongue.
I made a half sheet pan with large pieces of coated cauliflower.
recipe is definitely a keeper and is my new favorite way of making cauliflower.

longer than baking just pieces.
