    Everything looks so good, Mollie! You are really making me hungry all the time! Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday party and for making me hungry!😂

    Hi Mollie, as usual a wonderful, comprehensive collection of deliciousness. I’m in awe, and I wish I lived next door to you 😄😄.

    • Thanks Joanne! I wish you did, too! I need someone to feed!! My next door neighbor is on a strict diet – I usually try to share desserts with her, haha! I have half a mind to just put some of my scones on her doorstep, lol!! I was just thinking about you today because I want to attempt cauliflower rellanos! Can you tell me if the ones you had at the restaurant were like little whole pieces of caulifower or tiny shreds of cauliflower rolled up into a ball? I have not been able to get the thought of them out of my mind!

        Hi Mollie,
        They were pieces, fairly large, I’m not sure if they were flash fried or just sauteed til really crispy. They had a tomato sauce with cheese on top; Not drenched in cheese but a fairly healthy amount.
        We stop in Fredricksburg on our drive from OIB, NC to Pennsylvania just to go to Poncho Villa for these rellanos.
        The manager said he was taking them off the menu(apparently not a big seller) and if I passed by again he would give me the recipe. Haha.
        Sadly we aren’t making the trip til Christmas, so if you are able to recreate them, I will forever be in your debt.
        Thank you for answering me when I write. I feel such joy when I read your blog and get a reply. Im sure you are so busy, but you take the time out of your day, and that makes me very happy.


        • The feeling is mutual!! And I’d love to see the recipe, too! I’m so intrigued! But I’m going to try to experiment a bit. I love Rellanos made with Poblanos, so I know I’d love this. 🙂 You’re the greatest and I appreciate the comments, always! And the facebook review!!

    • Isn’t it amazing? I still remember the first time I had Cajun food, it was in a little Jazz bar/restaurant in downtown Denver, and it was amazing! I got blackened something or other!
