Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower

Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower

I can’t think of any recipe I’ve made recently that’s given me as much angst as Mashed Cauliflower. See, I love cauliflower. Cooked almost anyway and raw, too. And I love my One Pot Mash in the Pan Instant Pot Cauliflower Rice. So when I started hearing about Mashed Cauliflower as a lower carb alternative to Mashed Potatoes I just knew I would love it! I jumped on it. And I hated it. It wasn’t until I started combining the Mashed Cauliflower with Parmesan cheese for Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower that I began to like it.

So how many of you have a “Deserted Island” food? I almost said, “dessert island” that would be even better, huh? So a Deserted Island food is a food you would pick if you had to live on a deserted island but the catch is It can be only one food. Mine is potatoes. Specifically mashed potatoes and if I could bring my Instant Pot along, it would be these Perfect Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes.

Spicy Beef & Feta Skewers with Greek Brown Rice Salad (made with Instant Pot Brown Rice)

Greek Brown Rice Salad

I’ve been on a bit of a Meditteranean kick. I’m trying to health up the rest of the summer, at least until Labor Day comes. Besides it’s August and it’s hot and it’s humid (whine whine whine) and I want to eat (and cook) cool and light. And so I made Greek Brown Rice Salad to go with my soon to be posted Spicy Beef & Feta Skewers.

I just did a post for Horiatiki Greek Salad not too long ago. Gosh, that was good. And I wanted to carry some of those flavors forward with a little twist. Funny how I listed so many variations of our American Style Greek Salads, but I didn’t mention or think about combining it with rice, let alone brown rice.

Corn Patch Corn Casserole

This is an oldie but a goodie, Corn Patch Corn Casserole. I was thumbing through my recipes when I came across it and I don’t think I’ve made it for over 30 years. I thought I’d resurrect my recipe and try it again. See if my memories about how good this is are correct and all that.

So over the long weekend, temps way up in the 90’s (oh why is the weather so craaaazy this year?) I somehow got the idea that I wanted some of that Old Fashioned Tuna Macaroni Salad. You know the one I mean, all cool, creamy deliciousness with a few crunchy veggies and that tuna that somehow melds in and makes everything so rich.

Cauliflower au Gratin: Can Cauliflower get any better? Easy dish for a holiday dinner to dress up a pork chop or ham meal

So I always wonder how the winter is going for everyone – we’re going to be up to 58 tomorrow but I’m bummed because it’s supposed to rain. But it was supposed to snow, so we’re lucky for this heat wave. Then down to 15 degrees by the end of the week.

Mexican Street Corn - grilled for 8 minutes, then slathered in a spicy, cheesy mix! A favorite.

Maybe the world doesn’t need another post on “Grilled Mexican Street Corn” or what is really our American version based off of the classic “Elotes.” I do, though – or else I’m hitting up sites when I’m making dinner, trying to find the particulars.
