Easy Roasted Cauliflower

Easy Roasted Cauliflower

Easy Roasted Cauliflower

Finally!  An easy paleo roasted cauliflower recipe. Just can’t get much easier than this folks.

I have not been a fan of cauliflower (are you?) but when roasted, it actually tastes pretty good.

I headed out early this morning to pick up my full head of cauliflower at the grocery store. And what a beautiful Minnesota morning it was.

Next, to prep for dinner. I took my head of cauliflower and, with a large knife, cut it into small pieces.  Although, once you start cutting into it, the cauliflower starts coming apart and you can use your hands to separate it easily. I then threw it in a mesh basket that I have hanging over my sink and sprayed it with cold water to clean it.  I let it drip dry for a few minutes.

Next I placed my fairly dry cauliflower in a large bowl, sprinkled it with olive oil and pepper then salt and tossed it all together.  You don’t want too much olive oil but you want enough that the cauliflower glistens (looks a little shiny).

Next you’ll be spreading the cauliflower out on a cookie sheet ~ no need to oil it as the oil that you added to the cauliflower will suffice.

Then you’ll be roasting it.  I used my convection oven but this can be roasted in a regular oven so no worries there.  In the convection oven it took 13 minutes and I took the cauliflower out at the 7 minute mark and tossed them about.  In a regular oven, you would roast it for 20 minutes and toss it at the 10 minute mark ~ but I would check your oven as some of them heat hotter than others.

I served the cauliflower with my Indian Chicken with Gravy recipe (although I substituted skinless chicken thighs for the skinless legs) and a Tahini Sauce that I found over at the Minimalist Baker site.  It all came out pretty pretty good.

Beauty in the Midwest

Midwest Road

Midwest Road

A recent trip through northwest Illinois then into Wisconsin gave us ample opportunity to see much beauty in the Midwest.  Driving along the backroads there is very little traffic but lots of corn and soy farms along with houses that have attached large barns ~ most of them painted red.

I’ve always wanted to knock on these doors and ask the people who live there why they choose to live there.  To live remotely, away from what one might consideration civilization with its cell phones, cable, Starbucks around the corner …  Sometimes I think they have a better quality of life than most of us.

One day I hope round up enough guts and nerve to knock on a door.

One scene that majestically appeared over and over again is of puffy clouds hanging beautifully in the sky with odd shapes that made me wrack my brain to determine what they might resemble.  A dog? An angel? A person?

Further north towards Wisconsin, we stopped at the Mississippi Palisades State Park in Savannah, Illinois and snapped some photos.  There were two other couples taking pictures who were also camping here ~ otherwise all seemed quiet.  I wondered why more people weren’t out enjoying this area.

A quick jaunt down the path led us to views of the Mississippi.  So peaceful here ~

Voyageurs National Park

A weekend getaway allowed us to explore the Voyageurs National Park in northern Minnesota.

Our first stop was at the Kabetogama Lake Visitor Center which had a friendly ranger, nice bathrooms and a spectacular view.  They also have a boat launch and offer a water tour which is about 5 hours, I believe.

It was a perfect day for a hike so we decided to start with the Echo Bay Trail which is a 2.5 mile loop and the difficult level is easy.  Although the brochure said the hike would take 2 hours, we were able to do it in less than 1.5 hours.  I’m guessing there was a reason for this quickness.

A few days prior to our arrival, the area had a large rainstorm. So, we were walking in mud for a few sections of the trail.  The insect population was a-bustling.  Lots of mosquitoes and other flying bugs.  I had worn a long sleeved sweater and walked with the front of my t-shirt covering my mouth for part of the way so the mosquitoes wouldn’t “smell” my carbon dioxide.  It worked!

But it felt like a long arduous walk.  The trail was not cleared of tall grass and there were several places were downed trees had not been moved so you had to walk over or under them.

Towards the end of the trail, there were a couple of small boardwalks.

From this trail we headed over to the Ash River Visitor Center which is also staffed with a friendly ranger.  The short walk to the water from the Visitor Center is worth it and offers spectacular views.

The Crow

As we pulled up to my brother’s driveway, I saw a crow sitting on the lawn. It was odd in that it was standing so still in all it’s glorious blackness.

I’m not a crow fan ~ never have been and never will be.  The sound of them cawing in the mornings makes me say “ugh” as I turn over to the other side and cover my ears.

I’ve heard that crows are intelligent birds and people have told me many crow stories that attest to their intelligence.  Can you believe it?

Getting out of the car, I walked up to this crow only to realize that it was made of plastic.  I laughed out loud at the “mistaken identity” ~ thinking the crow was real when it was fake.  It does look real though, doesn’t it?

The Crow

The Crow

Before leaving my brother’s house, I asked him if I could have the crow and he said yes.  I had a brilliant idea that I couldn’t shake.

And so it was when I arrived home that I put the crow in my front yard.  The bright idea I had?  I assumed that the other crows would not come near our house because a new “family” of crows had arrived.  Such a brilliant idea, no?

I hadn’t noticed anything different for a few days until one day, after heading out for a bit with the hubby, we pulled into the driveway and there were four crows “hanging around” with the plastic one.  As soon as we pulled in closer, they flew away.  No!  I told myself.  Crows are supposed to be intelligent and not come around other crow families …

A few days passed by and I again left the house and upon arrival, there they were again.  It appeared that these crows were trying to figure out who the new crow in town was.

My plan had backfired ~ instead of scaring the crows away with a new “crow,” I had managed to call them in to make friends with a fake one.

Who knew?

Puerto Rican Remedies

Whenever I visit my mother (who is of Puerto Rican descent), I’m always glad when I arrive healthy. The alternative, being sick, brings out all kinds of Puerto Rican remedies that I’d rather not deal with.

But, she’s my mother, so I indulge her.

The last time I visited when I was sick, she brought out “something that will help your pain.”

“What is it?” I asked.

She, matter-of-factly said, “It’s something your uncle brought me from Indiana.  Don’t worry, it will help any aches and pains you have.”

“Uh, yeah, but what is it?” I asked more determinedly.

“Don’t worry about it.  Your aunts use it and it helps them.”

Okaaayyyyy.  And so she found an empty jar and put some of the blue lotion in the jar and handed it to me.

Blue Pain Lotion

Blue Pain Lotion

Interesting looking thing, isn’t it?

Here’s what it looks like with the lid off ~

While I was at her place, I went to the bathroom and curiosity got the better of me.  I found the container that this blue pain lotion came in and read the ingredients (sorry, I didn’t have my phone to take a picture for you).

Reading through the ingredients slowly, I saw “it.” This lotion is to help horses with their arthritic knees.  Yikes!

As I was leaving, she said “did you remember to take your lotion?”

Uh, yes Mama, I have the lotion.

Such is one of the quirky things I learned to grow up with.

Paleo Fresh Spring Rolls

Paleo Fresh Spring Rolls

Paleo Fresh Spring Rolls

The spring rolls I’ll be presenting can be considered a paleo “cheat”  to some people as they use rice paper.  The inside of the spring roll can have a variety of ingredients added to them so it’s a versatile recipe.

There are a lot of strict paleo-ites who would not eat rice at all as they have no nutritional value.  Instead, the rice adds empty calories to your diet so if you’re trying to lose weight, rice should not be in your diet.

For my ingredients, I used lettuce, carrots, cucumber, scallions and cilantro.  Pretty simple, no?

Our local grocery store had rice paper which surprised me but I was glad I didn’t have to search all over town for it.  They had two different kinds and I purchased the Banh Trang Rice Paper.

Banh Trang Rice Paper

The springs rolls I have eaten at restaurants have a peanut sauce either inside the roll or else it’s served with an outside peanut dip.  I decided to use cashew butter instead (paleo-ites don’t eat peanuts).  What I did was take a couple of large tablespoons of cashew butter then I added a little bit of water to liquify it so I can pour it on top of the veggies in the spring rolls.

Trader Joe's Cashew Butter

In order to prepare the rice paper, you need to have a bowl of water that’s either cold or warm that you will put the rice paper in (so it has to have a wide bottom).

Water for Rice Paper

The rice paper is very thin.  I put it in my cold water for a couple of seconds then took it out and put it on a plate in preparation to fill it with the veggies.

The picture below appears that I was a bit chintzy with my vegetables.  I added more after I took the picture though.  (Don’t be so judgmental ~ laughing)

Filling the Rice Paper with Veggies

After the rice paper is filled with your veggies and sauce, you simply fold it from the bottom to the middle then fold the sides over and finally fold the top over it.  I’m not a pro at it yet but what I did worked for me.

Of Judgment & A Roadrunner

New Mexico Roadrunner

New Mexico Roadrunner

This roadrunner looks large, so how can this man hold it in one hand?

Well, as you probably have guessed, he’s not holding it in his hand but the photo is taken as if he was.

This New Mexico Roadrunner Sculpture is actually 20 feet tall and 40 feet long.  It was built by artist Olin Calk back in 1993.

At first glance you can’t really tell what it’s made of, can you?

So, let’s take a closer look …  But, before I show you a picture that has a little more detail, see if you can take a good guess just by looking at the picture below.

Las Cruces, New Mexico Roadrunner

Are you guessing?

It’s hard to tell from afar, isn’t it?

Let’s take a look at it’s beak ~  what do you see?

Here’s a closer look at the tail section ~

And a few more pictures for you to view this interesting sculpture ~

From ironing boards, shoes, keyboards and crutches, this roadrunner is made up of a lot of what people would consider junk or garbage.

It reminds me of humanity.  Sometimes we look at people from afar, see them at their best and really want to get to know them.  Once we get closer though, we see that they are made up of the same thing everyone else is made up of ~ basic human needs, put together as best as possible (although in some instances not put together very well at all).

The question we have to ask ourselves is: Do we want to get to know them better in spite of their weaknesses and flaws (recycled lives as it were) or would we rather just drive by and hope we find someone who doesn’t have so much stuff crammed into their life.

It’s not really a tough choice if we remember that we have struggles and flaws also.  Our desire, need and hope is that someone “out there” will give us a second look in spite of all we have been recycled out of ~

Humanity is not always at it’s best (especially the closer you get to someone) ~ that’s a given.  I’m not always at mine either.  Seeing past the outer core of people isn’t easy yet sometimes the best reward is when you dig deeper and are able to experience their (and your own) potential.

” … The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”  1 Samuel 16:7

Purple Sweet Potato Ice Cream

Vegan Coconut Purple Sweet Potato Ice Cream

Vegan Coconut Purple Sweet Potato Ice Cream

This paleo & vegan Purple Sweet Potato Ice Cream recipe was sent to me by a friend who happened to come across it.

I thought “Hmmm … it sounds interesting and I have an ice cream maker.  Why not?”  And so began my interesting journey to make this ice cream.

I thought my first challenge would be finding purple sweet potatoes, but I found them at the local grocery store.  It’s funny I had never seen them before.  Have you seen one?  The ones I found were small so I purchased a few of them not knowing how many I would need for this recipe.

Purple Sweet Potatoes

Purple Sweet Potatoes

I cleaned, peeled and diced them until I had enough for 3/4 cup.

Purple Sweet Potatoes

I found I had too many so I set the others aside and used them in another recipe.

Next, I boiled the diced potatoes.  (Yes, I know I have too much water in the pot for the amount of potatoes.)

Boil the purple sweet potatoes

Once the potatoes were soft, I added them to a blender along with the full fat coconut milk, the maple syrup and the arrowroot powder.  Then I whizzed it all together until it was nice and smooth.

Next I threw (well, not literally) the smoothed ingredients back in the pot and brought it to a boil.  After boiling, I took the saucepan off the stove and whisked it until it was thickened.  I then added the vodka along with the vanilla and blended it all together.

Whisk the ingredients together

Whisk the ingredients together

Ahhh ~ did you see the odd ingredient I added to this?  Vodka.  I do not drink alcoholic beverages and will occasionally use wine in some recipes so this was a stretch for me to use it.  However, the vodka helps to keep the ice cream soft when it freezes.  Unfortunately, when I asked my husband to pick up some vodka on the way home, I forgot to tell him I only needed two tablespoons.  Guess I’ll be making a lot more ice cream.  (smile)

Now the waiting began as this has to chill overnight.  And this is where it became quite interesting for me.

The next day, I took the container with the smoothed ingredients out of the refrigerator.  I already had my ice cream maker ready to go.

I took a spoon and mixed it up a little.

P1140508

It seemed a little hard to me but I figured it had to be chilled before going into the ice cream maker.  Still, it seemed stiff.

P1140510

But, I decided to plod along and started adding it to the ice cream maker base before it started to get warm.  Unfortunately, something was not right.  The ice cream maker didn’t seem to be moving exactly as I expected.  So, I stopped it and looked inside.

The ice cream had frozen at the bottom.  My refrigerator apparently made the ingredients too cold for the ice cream maker.  Blah.

P1140497

Undeterred, I put the ingredients back in the refrigerator and, after cleaning it I put the ice cream base back in the freezer and decided to try again the next day.

Knowing that my refrigerator must be colder than Aimee’s at Wall Flower Kitchen whose recipe this is, I took out the ingredients from the refrigerator and every 15 minutes (for about 45 minutes) stirred the ingredients until they were a little more liquid-y and soft.

Then I got the ice cream maker out again and started it.

This time, success!!!

The ice cream came out smooth and tasted quite good!  Two out of three people in our house really liked it ~ the one person (who shall remain nameless) kept comparing it to “real” ice cream and said it tasted a little grainy.

But this is a great and healthy recipe.  Really!

Paleo Baked Salmon With Tomatoes

Paleo Baked Salmon With Tomatoes

Paleo Baked Salmon With Tomatoes ~ simplynorma.com

Having a couple of salmon fillets in the fridge, I was looking for a new recipe and came across this one by Giada De Laurentiis.  You know who she is, right?  In case you don’t, she’s a famous Italian born American chef.

I haven’t tried too many of her recipes but decided to try this one.  However, I didn’t bake my salmon in foil as she hers.  Call me a rebel, again.  At my age (no, I’m not 100 yet) I’m entitled to a little freedom. Actually, we’re all entitled to a little freedom but in the case of recipes we need to make sure we give credit to those who have “gone before us.”   So, make sure you click on the link above if you want to know how to bake the salmon in foil.  Capiche?

Overall, I’d call this an easy recipe.

You start with two salmon fillets ~

Two Salmon Fillets

Next you’ll be making a mixture with tomatoes (canned or fresh), sliced onions and herbs.

Once the mixture is made, you’ll be layering it over the unbaked salmon.

Sweet Potato & Egg Salad

Sweet Potato & Egg Salad

Sweet Potato & Egg Salad

It feels like it’s been a long time since I’ve posted a new recipe.  Spring and summer arrived and I have two young men working with me on our acre so I’ve been been trying to work alongside them when they’re here.

After dinner, exhaustion sets in.  I’m not a spring chicken anymore and this yard work takes a toll on this body.  Bleh.

Come early July most of the yard work will be completed so I’ll have more time to focus on less physically strenuous things.

However, here’s a new recipe for you.  (clap, clap, clap)

I wanted to call this paleo recipe Sweet Potato Salad.  Then I thought, no, let’s call it Egg Salad.

Considering all my options, I decided to combine the two and let both the potatoes and the eggs get their credit ~ Paleo Sweet Potato & Egg Salad.  Whew!  Such hard decisions we have to make.

Making this was a no-brainer as I needed something to go with my baked chicken wings and potato salads are always good with chicken wings.

I first hard boiled 6 eggs.  Do you have a special set time you use to hard boil  your eggs?  I use 7 minutes exactly.  And that’s from when the water starts to boil.

Hard Boil Eggs

Next I had to find some white sweet potatoes and I was fortunate that I had two in the cupboard.  They looked a little … well, I wasn’t sure they were alive.  (haha)  They looked sad but they worked.

I peeled these potatoes making sure I cut off any parts that looked “too sad” to use.

Then I cut them into small bite-sized pieces.

Next I boiled them until they were firm but tender.  Hmmm … are you confused about what that means?  I used to be but not anymore.  Really all you’re looking for is boiling them until they are a tad soft (yet cooked).  You don’t want them to fall apart in your recipe.

I used a pot that was a little too big for the amount of potatoes I had so I made sure I didn’t use too much water ~ just enough to cover the potatoes.

Next I decided to use some carrots in my salad ~ just to be different.  I took a half carrot, peeled it, sliced it thinly then cut it into 1 inch or so pieces.

Then you’re basically putting everything together once you have the prep work done.

One last note though ~ I use a homemade mayonnaise recipe (click here) but I substitute olive oil instead of the canola oil.

Ingredients

  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 2 medium white sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 small carrot, sliced thin and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • Mustard (to taste)

  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  1. Boil the 6 eggs until they are hard (on my electric stove it takes approximately 7 minutes to get them hard boiled).
  2. Boil the sweet potatoes until they are firm (you don't want them too soft) then allow them to cool for about 10 minutes.
  3. When the eggs are ready, peel them then slice them thinly.
  4. When the sweet potatoes are ready, drain the water then put them a medium sized bowl.
  5. Add the eggs and carrots to the bowl.
  6. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper then mix everything together.
  7. Taste to make sure it doesn't need more of any ingredient for your taste.
