Cauliflower love.

Greasest idea since they decided to french the fries.

Crumble up an entire head of cauliflower and toss with olive oil, garlic (fresh/dried/fried/pickled) and dash with a heaping helping of salt.

Roast at 450 for about 40 minutes and toss every 10 minutes or so.
I usually last about 30 minutes and eat the entire portion alone.

This time I managed to whip up a bed of noodles with marinara sauce to hold my white vegetable while waiting.

Fantastic.

Be still my heart.

A few weeks ago a friend baked my family a deep dish chocolate walnut cookie. It wasn’t pippin hot out the oven like I prefer but it was perfectly chewy and my husband (typically not a huge fan of sweets) couldn’t get enough. He asked me that night if I would make one of those, sans nuts.

My husband asks me to bake something? I jump at the challenge!

Chocolate chip cookie pie

Every so often I manage to calm down while cooking and document the whole process with my big fancy Cannon. This is not one of those times. Buut I did manage to add hip vintage affects to my poor quality snapshot to make up for the lameness.

Is it working?

Anyhow, this was beyond delicious, and I mean it! For the first time in our married life we bought ice cream. Vanilla, to be exact, especially for this bad boy (we also bought pralines and cream too. Why not right?). When I said beyond delicious I meant that this was so gooey and sweet, filled with milk chocolate (his idea) instead of semi-sweet, that I couldn’t finish it.

The recipe calls for a crust. Like a real pie you know? Who needs crust? I added about a half cup of flour to maybe make it less gooey. Also I think if the butter wasn’t melted it would of made a beneficial difference.

Happy Pi day.

Having Pi(e) before dinner would be just horrid and my mother would be oh so disappointed. (Not however denying that I have done just that before…).

Sweet and Sour chicken and dried noodle. Excellent. Lets begin.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Its all quite easy and I could lick a spoonful of the ketchup, soy, and sugar sauce all day. Please follow this recipe exactly and you will not be disappointed.

Served with 2 minute oriental noodles. Steamed then tossed with soy sauce over the flame.

Chocolate Coconut Pie

How many pie-less March 14ths have I passed in my lifetime? So far all of them I presume…

Heres a little incentive to make this; the crust is made of coconut and butter. Need I say more? Surely, the pie is made of cream and chocolate and thats it.¬†Unless of course you are seeking revenge a la The Help. In that case you’ll need another ingredient ;)

Who could resist?

I believe the only easier way to get a pie equally easy and delicious would to beg a friend to make it. But there is really no need to that because we all are perfectly capable of marching to the store and picking up 4 measly ingredients used in this gem.

Happy Pi day!

 

Sorry for the poor quality in the photos. All I had was my phone and this was just too delicious for me to wait and get my camera :)
