Roasted Bell Pepper Salad

This roasted bell pepper salad with southwestern ranch dressing is my new favorite way to eat bell peppers… seriously! Although this recipe is meatless, but you could easily add your favorite grilled protein to make it a heartier meal.  We added smoked pork, it was a winning combo!

Sheet Pan Sausage and Veggies

We’ve been focusing on healthier eating for the last few weeks at our house.  From the results of our little Facebook poll last week, it sounds like many of you have, too!  Our Quick and Healthy option- Sheet Pan Sausage and Veggies, was the recipe you wanted to try most.  So here we are!


Garlic and Bacon Mashed Cauliflower

Today we’re going to talk about mashed cauliflower.  It’s delicious.  In fact, it has surpassed mashed potatoes as a favorite side in our house… which is no easy feat!

In looking for ways to eat a little bit lighter, I came across the idea of mashed cauliflower. I was skeptical… carb-lover that I am.  We tried it anyway, and we’ve been in love ever since!

It was one of Hunter’s favorite first foods, and a regular request from Cale, too! Look! That’s a clean bowl from a one year old!

I like big flavor from my veggies, so I add garlic and bacon crumbles to our cauli mash.  You can leave these out if you want (but I don’t know why you would!!)
