Maggie, the cauliflower thing reminded me to make that again...In the spring I was making 'mashed potatoes' with 100% cauliflower. The kids loved it. Can't remember why I stopped, I think I just forgot about it. I add a little fat free half/half, and some parm. cheese or mont. jack and it's yummy.
I've also made them with 100% cauliflower - ds really liked it, but dh, not so much. So I've now realized that if I just put one small potato in them, then they get a potato-y taste and dh never knows!!!
Totally off the subject (sorry!) - you mentioned the fat free half and half - I was just thinking about this literally 5 minutes ago when I poured my coffee - I got half and half from the store the other day and was so disappointed when I saw brought it home and saw that it was fat free. I mean, isn't it supposed to be half cream, half whole milk?
how could that be fat free!
(I think you already know that I prefer full fat versions of everything!!!
) Andy Rooney did a segment recently on dairy products that was really funny. I'll try to find the link.
anyway, here I am eating my yummy blueberry bar for breakfast (totally defeats the purpose of healthy cooking - even if it is full of spinach! It's also full of sugar and fat!). Seriously though, the blueberry bars are really good.
And about the whole thing regarding the idea of putting pureed veggies into food being stolen (that sentence is terrible - but you know what I mean!!!). Kind of silly if you ask me. Although, I would be a bit peeved if I was the other author as Seinfeld's wife already sort of has a name for herself and people will be turned onto her book and not others just because of the name
It's nice to get ideas for recipes - even if they aren't new ideas.
sorry for the marathon post!
