Popcorn Cauliflower

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2013
This was delicious! I prepared it a bit differently, however, based on my research of some other recipe websites. I used one head of organic cauliflower, cut into ping-pong sized pieces. Then, in a large bowl, I whisked together: olive oil (probably about 5 tbs), with a touch of garlic infused olive oil, and chile pepper infused olive oil; roughly a tsp of salt, some black pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper (you could use whatever spices/herbs you prefer). Then, I tossed the cut and washed cauliflower(pat dry so oil/spice mix adheres properly) in the oil mixture (try to toss by moving the bowl in a circular motion, instead of using fingers, as this tended to break apart the cauliflower pieces) until everything was coated nicely. I baked this on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper for approx. 45 minutes at 415 degrees, tossing the cauliflower every 15 minutes with a spatula until they became golden-brown, and somewhat blackened on the tippy-tops.(In my opinion, you don't need the sugar or cooking spray). So yummy!!

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
This was sooo awesome! I've made it several times now, and I love it! I added cayenne and lots of crushed red pepper, as I like it spicy! Highly recommend!

Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
Really delicious! I used canned, organic corn, and added chopped, organic chives and organic cilantro instead of the garlic and onions. I also added a chopped, fresh jalapeno and a chopped serrano pepper. I also added half of a squeezed lime. I also served 2% fat Greek yogurt with it, on the side, and dolloped on top of the tortilla chips loaded with the salsa! It was a big hit, and very easy to prepare! Recommend highly!

Erik's Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
Awesome! I steamed the cauliflower, instead of microwaving (maintains flavor and nutrients). Also sauteed celery, garlic, shallots, and 1/2 of a medium red onion in a bit of the bacon fat, a little butter, turmeric, crushed red pepper flakes, salt and pepper; then added this mix, once veggies were tender, to the cauliflower, and blended as instructed (also added a smidgen of buttermilk). Loved it, loved it! Celery added some nice texture to this dish. Cauliflower is my new best friend! Thanks, Erik!!

Italian Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
This bread had a too-thick consistency, and was flavorless, despite adding extra organic, all-purpose seasoning and salt. I wouldn't make it again. I was very disappointed, because it smelled really good while baking, but, alas...

Hot Mexican Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
Awesome!! I also added a can of heated refried beans, cayenne pepper, some red pepper flakes, sliced green olives, and a couple drizzles of olive oil. I also used hot pepper cheese instead of the plain monterey jack cheese (we obviously like it spicy!) I think a half cup of evaporated milk is sufficient. This was sooo goood!! Will make again... maybe will add some black beans and corn next time!
