    This is a recipe my DH actually came up with... well, actually it was a recipe that he changed to his tastes lol... I always tell my DH how much I LOVE this cauliflower.... I could seriously eat this every day if it didn't have so much fat and calories lol but forget about that stuff just once and try this... you wont regret it!!! you can adjust the sauce ingredients to your liking.... making more if you want lots of sauce, or making less if you dont like as much sauce!! :)

      Wow, we loved this! Even the pickiest eater with go for cauliflower prepared this way. I decreased the butter to 6 Tbsp, for the sake of our waistlines and it was still delish though probably not as rich-tasting. Otherwise I made no changes. Thanks for posting this, we will eat this often.

      This is a wondeful and ifferent way to prepare cauliflower. I loved that it had a bit of zing! I just poured in the chili sauce until it looked "right" LOL as we like a bit a heat. Thanks for a super recipe!
