Eat Your Veg

It's the “It” vegetable of the day, but don't let that deter you from making this dish at home. I will also say – unless you're meat free, ordering cauliflower as a main while dining out is a big fat…well, you know. It's a pretty big markup for little investment. Do it if the chef is your bestie.

For Goodness Sake, It’s 13 Degrees Blueberry Crumb Cake

I'm trying to save the last piece of blueberry crumb for my air warrior, but it's tough. This time, I got it perfect and I'm a harsh baking critic. The recipe calls for 45-50 minutes baking. If it feels a little soft @ 45, leave it in for 5 more. Mine took 50 exactly.

Also, here is the secret for GREAT crumbs. MELT the butter, then combine with the rest of the ingredients (brown sugar etc). Let it set in fridge 15-20 minutes, then crumble across the cake, varying the size of crumbs. You'll see. Click here for the recipe.

A Christmas or Anytime Morning Casserole

Ok, so I skipped the pepperoni as our meal was closer to breakfast than lunch. And I forgot to garnish with scallion which I diligently chopped. But I guarantee this is a no fail recipe. Waking up Christmas morning, I also remembered I forgot to set the strata the night before. No matter – an hour on the counter and the deed was done. Click here for the recipe from Food and Wine.

BTW – in a perfect pairing world, champagne (or prosecco) works regardless of time of day.
