Stamped Sweets Makes Any Occasion Special

Friends, I’ve never been big on Valentine’s Day. Not for any social reason like I’m opposed to the commercialism of it or anything. Just because.

Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower “Wings”

It has been a hot minute since I’ve posted a recipe. That’s mainly because the hubs has been doing most of the cooking. Also we’ve been experimenting with reducing the amount of animal products we consume. Not for any big soap box reason, but after watching a few too many Netflix documentaries we decided we… Continue reading Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower “Wings”
