Cali’flour Kitchen: 125 Cauliflower-Based Recipes for the Carbs You Crave + Win a copy!

ABRAMS Books sent me Cali’flour Kitchen in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I’ll never relish a radish or turn up for turnip, but cauliflower I could eat all day. Raw, riced or roasted; in a cookie or a crust — there’s exponential potential for this vegetable for every meal and diet. Whether it’s soups or skillets or sweets you’re after — or maybe just the cauliflower pizza crust that Amy Lacey’s Cali’flour Foods turned into a multi-million dollar business — there’s something for everyone in Cali’flour Kitchen: 125 Cauliflower-Based Recipes for the Carbs You Crave. Dairy-free? Check. Gluten- and Grain-Free? Check and check. Keto? (Nods yes.) Keto friendly (Nods again.) Paleo, Vegan and Vegetarian? Yes to all three. Many are a combination of most of the above, making for a wide variety of dishes suitable for myriad diets.  Continue reading Cali’flour Kitchen: 125 Cauliflower-Based Recipes for the Carbs You Crave + Win a copy!

Something with two covers and a bunch of pages in between, maybe. A handbook of sorts. An illustrated guide, if you please. I think that is this book: The New Plant Parent: Develop Your Green Thumb and Care for Your House-Plant Family by Darryl Cheng.

It’s bloomin’ March! What’s ahead

Well hey there, good lookin’! I hope you’re having a sweet Saturday. I wanted to get this out earlier but I’ve been cleaning like a woman possessed (it rarely happens, so when it does I’ve got to go with it) so here we are. Both of us with a cup of tea (yes?) and a few minutes to ourselves to look at what’s coming up here and elsewhere this month.

Today I’ve got some ones you might not have seen that would make great gifts for the fashionista, the interior design and decor lover, the entrepreneur (especially those in creative fields) and the cook in your life.
