About Me

Phoenix, Arizona, United States
The most important thing in my life is my family. I love my dear husband and 4 wonderful children (ages 11 through 18). I am a stay-at-home mom (my dream job!). Some of my favorite things to do include cooking (and eating!), photography, reading, piano, flute, watching my favorite TV shows, swimming, traveling, and most recently...using the rip stick with my kids. I would love to attend culinary school someday & fit my love of photography in with that somehow. My dream vacation is Italy - something I was recently blessed to experience! I'd love to return and see more of that beautiful and DELICIOUS country! My days are usually full of running kids to and from activities - scouts, sports, music and church. Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe, but I absolutely LOVE my crazy life and the people I am lucky enough to share it with!

PARMESAN-CRUSTED CAULIFLOWER (from Robin Miller Quick-Fix Meals)

How can something so white taste so wonderful? It's called
Parmesan cheese! We go through tons of the stuff in my house and
vegetables are no exception. In this dish, I parboil the cauliflower
first to get a jump-start on the cooking time. Not a cauliflower fan?
This coating works with virtually all vegetables .
Olive oil cooking spray
6 cups cauliflower florets
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, preferably freshly grated
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add the cauliflower and cook for 1 minute. Drain and transfer the cauliflower to the prepared baking sheet. Spray the cauliflower with cooking spray, then sprinkle with the Parmesan and season with pepper. Bake until the cheese is golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Total Time: 15 minutes

Cauliflower is low in carbohydrates (2.6 grams in 1/2 cup), low in calories (14 calories per 1/2 cup), high
in vitamin C, and a good source of heart-healthy folate.
