  1. When I was a kid the only way I would eat cauliflower was with cheese sauce. Now I like it even just plain. This was easy and tasted good, but I would double the amount of cheese next time. I used a sharp cheddar, but it just wasn't enough. I only had dried parsley (forgot to look before shopping) so I stirred it into the sauce. Made for Spring 2013 PAC.
  2. We loved this simple recipe. I used a sharp cheese which gave it plenty of flavor for our taste. I forgot to add the parsley, but think that would have added some freshness and color. Made for ZWT 8.
  3. This was easy and a pretty good basic recipe, next time I would spice the sauce up with a bit of chili powder or mustard to give it something extra.


I love trying new recipes and once a month cooking (though I don't do it as often as I'd like). I am absolutely getting hooked on the tag games! Thank you to everyone who has tried my recipes, I hope you're liking them as much as my family does! My favorite magnet is one I got from my MIL that has a bunny hopping around saying I'm to busy to be organized. Story of my life. I have three great kids who are growing up way too fast, I'm not ready for empty nest syndrome. I married a wonderful man in 2009 who took me to Alaska on our honeymoon, It was one of the top two places I've always wanted to visit (not one he really had a desire to go to). Next year he's taking me to the other one he and I both want - Australia. Guess I like places that start with A's.
