As you can see I have been playing around with the background color of the blog. I was getting sick of the old background, and it was taking quite a long time to load. For now I am going to keeping it all white, but I am open to any suggestions that you guys may have! Do you think I should go with a solid color or a pattern, add some photos to the header (I think I will), or leave it be? I am open to anything, really! I’m also looking to completely switch over to a self-hosted server, but am not sure exactly how to go about it. I know it is quite a lengthy process, (or maybe it might just seem like one to me since I’m not all that tech savvy) so I want to make sure I cover all my basis before I make the switch. Any insight would be much appreciated! I value your opinions, keep ‘em comin’! Now onto something a little more tasty!
Oven Roasted Cauliflower
Although I love almost every vegetable out there, I will admit that sometimes veggies can taste a little bland if they are constantly prepared and eaten the same way. For me, bland food is simply not enjoyable, so I am constantly thinking up new ways to spice up my veggies, especially cauliflower.
Before I started roasting my cauliflower, I would just steam it, add some salt and oil, eat it for the nutritional value and call it a day. Now don’t get me wrong, I still think that steaming veggies is a great way to prepare them. It’s fast, easy and effective, but lets be serious, there is only so much flavor that can be brought out by steaming a vegetable! Roasting is definitely my cooking method of choice when it comes to veggies. Not only is this amazing cauliflower recipe quick and easy to make, it is full of flavor and healthy too! Even your cauliflower hating husband, and non-vegetable eating children will like it! Promise
