Cauliflower Pizza Crust with Roasted Vegetables and Goat Cheese

CauliflowerPizza1THIS WAS SO GOOD.    CauliflowerPizza2

While I was making this, I was thinking “this better freakin be worth it” because I was making a HUGE mess all over my kitchen while “pulsing” the cauliflower in the blender and trying to get it out. But it totally was! I ended up using two cauliflower heads and making two pizzas. Good choice because one would not have been enough for both of us. With two we had some leftovers for my lunch 🙂 I followed this recipe exactly, but mixed up the vegetables a little bit. Peppers were on sale at Price Chopper in all different colors so I bought one of each.. I thought it made the pizza look pretty!! On my second pizza I thought to myself, “why the heck are there no black olives on this?!” (I LOVE BLACK OLIVES).. So I added some of those to my second one… as well as all the vegetables that were left over. Went a little overboard on that one. Still tasted good though! I had never had goat cheese before. Not totally necessary but added a nice touch! Conor really liked it too! I’ll be making this again!


Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders with Sweet Potato Tots


This was our New Year’s Eve dinner! The slow cooker buffalo chicken turned out sooo good! The only thing I did different from the recipe was shredded the chicken in the crock pot and left it in for another 20 minutes or so. At first I was afraid it would be too spicy if I did that but it wasn’t!! And yes, I made the buns for the sliders!! I’ve actually never had King’s Hawaiian bread, but this recipe is a copycat of those and they are soooo good! They were relatively easy to make, just time consuming. We had a lot of extra which I put in the freezer for a later date 🙂 Also, I attempted to make sweet potato tots. I saw it on Pinterest and just tried to wing it. I boiled the potatoes until they were soft, then grated them (with a cheese grater) and made two different kinds. One with honey and cinnamon. Another with parmesan cheese. Mixed the grated sweet potatoes with either honey & cinnamon or parmesan cheese, shaped them into tots, then baked them at 375 for 15 minutes, rolled them over and cooked them for another 15. Conor liked the honey & cinnamon ones but I wasn’t a huge fan of either. Won’t be making those again! Buffalo chicken sliders are a keeper thou!
