Eating is a necessity. However, we choose what to eat. The choices we make reveal a great deal about us. The food you eat can tell quite a bit about your heritage, your family, your fears, your sense of adventure, your attitude toward yourself and others, and a myriad of other personal tidbits to anyone paying attention. Everything about eating is a glimpse into your soul.

I hope to reveal a little bit about myself to you through my food. I enjoy cooking. I enjoy eating. I find pleasure in bringing pleasure to others. I hope that by sharing my recipes I bring you a little bit of joy.

Cook my food. Feed it to the people you love.

Honey Roasted Cauliflower

I’m always looking for new ways to jazz up vegetables.  This cauliflower is pretty jazzy.

Servings: 4-6
Time: prep: 5 minutes, roast: 25 minutes
Hardware: Cutting board and knives, measuring spoons and cups, a wooden spoon, a mixing bowl, a baking sheet


  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • ⅓ cup light olive oil
  • ¼  cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
  • S&P to taste
  • Fresh ground pepper 
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°.
  2. Cut the cauliflower into florets.  Chop the garlic.
  3. Mix the garlic, oil, honey, and vinegar.
  4. Toss the cauliflower in the honey mixture.
  5. Spread the cauliflower in a single layer on the baking sheet.  Don’t crowd the cauliflower or it will not roast, but steam instead.  Sprinkle with S&P.
  6. Roast for 20-25 minutes.  Stir the cauliflower half way through.
  7. Top with a few grinds of fresh black pepper and serve warm.
