Serves: 4

Time: 35 min (Cauliflower); 60 min (Red Pepper Romesco Sauce)

Difficulty: Medium

My wife and I hosted her parents this past weekend, and I was jonesing to make a new recipe while they were here. I had recently received the book The Vegetable Butcher from some friends for Christmas, and was eager to dive in and make some of the recipes. So after a bit of perusing through the book, I landed on this recipe for Cauliflower Steaks, and decided it was a winner for first recipe to make from the book. I had previously seen recipes for cauliflower steaks, but had never actually made them yet, so this was a perfect chance to do so. The end result was nothing short of phenemonal — a recipe I’m sure to make again.

Along with it, I made up a recipe for Baked Maple-Glazed Chicken that ended up being a perfect accompaniment to the squash. If you’re looking for a delicious fall-inspired recipe, give this a shot.

Last week, I was seriously jonesing to make some new recipes. And since my wife and I love to have “small plates” dinners every so often, I took the opportunity to jazz things up and make all new recipes for the meal, complete with a menu I printed up (because I’m a design geek like that). The menu for the evening included:

  • Raspberry Peach Sangria
  • Cheddar Bacon Ranch Spread
  • Garlic Smashed Potatoes with Sautéed Garlic Tomatoes
  • Grown-up Pigs in a Blanket (filled with BBQ pulled pork and cheese)
  • Zucchini Boats
  • Chocolate Tiramisu Truffles

Healthier Baked Pasta & Cheese

Healthier Baked Pasta & Cheese

Posted by Anthony on September 14, 2016 in Entree


The other day, my wife and I were jonesing for something cheesy for dinner, and so I took to looking for a healthy “mac and cheese” recipe to satisfy our taste for all things cheesy, while keeping it nutritious. I found a recipe for Broccoli Mac and Cheese in my Good Housekeeping 400 Calorie Meals cookbook, and gave it a whirl. Admittedly, I altered the recipe a bit to suit the types of cheese I had on hand (and to use a different pasta noodle other than macaroni). But after all was said, done, and baked, the end result was nothing short of delicious. If you’re in the mood for some homemade “mac and cheese”, give this recipe a shot — it’s sure to satisfy your craving for all things cheesy!
