  1. First, I want to wish you a happy anniversary ~ at least from what I can tell from your extensive archive! You have been at this for quite a while now.

    That said, I must say that although I am not at all fond of cauliflower, this recipe may just be the one that changes my mind. I mean, this really seems like a great dish to have on football Sunday. Of course, anything BBQ is great for the mancave. lol

    I am curious to know if these are all your original recipes? Or part of a cookbook you sell? Would celery be the natural alternative, should I not acquire the taste of cauliflower?

    1. Thank you so much for your good wishes. It means a lot to me!  Some of these are original recipes but many others have been carried down in my family or shared from friends.  

      I find cauliflower to be something that melds beautifully.  It’s bland on its own so it will “hide” beautifully in whatever dish you put it in!  Celery has a stronger flavor so it would be a different taste but I don’t see any reason not to give it a go.  Perhaps you could try some of both at the next football party and see what everyone thinks!  And please let me know.

  2. Hi Cynthia! Cool! This recipe is new to me; I try to mix cauliflower style with buffalo wings. Thank you for sharing the awesome recipe. Btw, sorry to tell you, your social sharing plugin keeps blocking my reading view so please do not put it in front of your posts. Thank you again.

  3. Hello Cynthia,

    Really liked your recipe, I’ve got hungry just from reading it lol 

    You seem to have a lot of recipes posted by now, but I’d like to give you a suggestion anyway, if you allow me. Most recipe blogs use a recipe plug-in being the most widely used WPRM (wordpress recipe maker). This plug-in converts your data into metadata, easily recognizable – and listed – by google as a recipe. I have soapmaking recipes and I saw a increase in traffic just because I’ve started using this plug-in. It also eases all the recipe management and writing. I don’t know if you considered it and decided against, which is fine, but since most food blogs use this or another recipe plug-in, your website might be getting “hurt” in traffic competition just for not using it. 

    Keep up the good work and much sucess to you!


  4. Thanks for what looks like such a yummy recipe, I cannot wait to try it out. I am not much a of a cook so I have not really explored how else can I use cauliflower except from traditional methods and ways. The recipe looks doable and easy to follow. It is so appetizing, thank you .
