.goodness, gracious.

Where have I been!? I apologize again folks. I haven't been feeling to good for the last little bit and there hasn't been much cooking going on. Lots of cereal, sandwiches and raw fruits and veggies.

I do want to share something I made shortly before the New Year though. After all the holiday eating, drinking and overall sugar consumption I decided it was important to get some good veggies in once we got back home to Georgia. Plus it gave me a chance to use a super awesome, new kitchen gadget I got.

A steamer basket!

I used it to steam cauliflower and make mashed cauliflower. Mmmm. It was cauliflowerlicious.

There's not really a set recipe that I used for this, just a mish-mash of multiple recipes I looked up. The only thing I would do different next time is steam the cauliflower a little longer, it didn't quite get to the creamy stage. I served the mashed cauliflower with some ham and corn. Delish.

Mashed Cauliflower serves 4
1 head of cauliflower
1 tablespoon butter
1/4-1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper for taste

Wash and chop the cauliflower into small florets. Place them in the steamer over boiling water and cover with a lid. Steam for at least 10 minutes, or until the cauliflower is super tender.

Place in a mixing bowl with butter, milk, salt and pepper and blend until creamed. Add more butter or milk if desired.



  1. Interesting...I have half a head of cauliflower in my fridge right now....

  2. I love it! I made it before and tried to tell the kids it was mashed potatoes....no go. But..I still loved it!
