Essential Oven Roasted Cauliflower

I’m a cauliflower lover and roasting is my favorite way to cook it. It’s crisp/tender, and the roasting really brings out the best in cauliflower. I’ll eat it just as is, on its own, dress it up for a fancier side or use it as a part of another recipe. Heck, I’ll eat it like some people eat popcorn!

Happy New Year Everyone! The years just seem to slip away faster & faster! I’m still dividing time between home and the folk’s. I never thought of love as an “investment” before, but I can see how the sharing, caring, the ups & the downs, compromise & commitment have paid off with a relationship that’s enduring and has great benefit to them both.
