Oven Roasted Cauliflower |

Oven Roasted Cauliflower

I can’t believe that I had not yet shared a recipe for Oven Roasted Cauliflower. I was absolutely, positively convinced that I had. But then the other day, I felt like whipping up a batch, so I decided to search for the recipe on my site (yeah, I do that sometimes) and was all mystified when I couldn’t find […]

Olive Rosemary Fauxcaccia |

Olive and Rosemary Faux’caccia

Quite frankly, when I took it out of the oven, I was genuinely impressed with the way it turned out. It looked so beautiful and perfectly golden, and fluffy and crispy… and the smell that was emanating from […]
