Our daughter, Madison, has been home for winter break for the past couple of weeks, and we have been eating like a bunch of college kids! Yikes!

It's been great having our better third home, but now that she's made the move to her winter internship, Don and I decided we better start eating less like a couple of college kids and more like the responsible adults we are supposed to be - boo! hiss!

In an attempt to enjoy something healthy and tasty to go along with the NY Strips I found on sale, I made Roasted Parmesan Garlic Cauliflower. WINNER!

    1. Thanks, Sandi! It's one of my favorite healthy snacks :) Have a great day ~Marion

  3. Cauliflower was so ignored in my house, but I've since learned how to addd different flavors and can't eat enough of it! Can't wait to try your recipe. Sounds delicious!!

    1. Thanks, Sandra! It is a favorite in our house - I love to snack on this!!

  4. I do something similar - but put the cauliflower, oil and garlic into a polythene food bag and squidge it around to make sure it's all covered and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes to get the garlic flavour into the cauliflower. Put into baking dish, sprinkle with cheese and bake as you've said in your recipe :)

    1. Great way to make sure that garlic gets into every nook and cranny! Thanks so much for sharing that trick!! ~Marion
