Roasted Garlic and Cauliflower Pizza – pizza with a roasted garlic ricotta sauce and topped with cauliflower, tomatoes, and fresh basil! Perfect meatless option for pizza night!

Hi guys, I’m obsessed with cauliflower and I’ll talk about it more in an upcoming post because it’s, like, a thing in my life right now.

A real thing.

Like, we ordered fried cauliflower at Megg’s the other day because I couldn’t resist.

So naturally I had to put it on pizza.

Hi guys, I don’t usually post on the weekends but I’ve been holding onto the photos for this Loaded Baked Potato and Cauliflower Soup for weeks now and wanted to get it post while the weather is terrible and we’re all freezing.

I had plans today, got all the kids in the car, and then immediately drove home after putting gas in the car because I literally couldn’t.

Too cold for me.

Everyone keeps saying, “Amanda, it’s February, of course it’s cold” but y’all, last February I was wearing sleeveless dresses in New Orleans during Mardi Gras and not complaining about it being too cold to have a Jeep.

Summer needs to hurry.

You guys.

I’m obsessed with cauliflower again.

I’ve had it everyday for, like, a month straight.

For breakfast.

I know. 

I swear it’s amazing though! I do some riced cauliflower with some riced sweet potato with diced turkey bacon and a fried egg. And then just a tiny bit of maple syrup and a giant drizzle of sriracha on top. Sounds weird, but just trust me.

I feel like every year around this time, my house gets super busy. It’s like, January hits and all of the sudden all my kids have a million activities and it’s made worse this year because I have a forever long list of things I want to do here before we move. So we are never home anymore.

I mean, it’s great and fun and all but it means we’re rushing to eat dinner, do baths, finish homework all in, like, an hour before bedtime. It’s not always easy to cook something healthy in that time so I wanted to share a delicious and healthy shortcut I’ve discovered.

Have you tried the Veggie Tots from Green Giant yet?

I am obsessed.

I spotted these at my grocery store a couple months ago and they’ve been a staple in my house ever since. And the best part is that my kids are all just as obsessed with them as I am.

So the Veggie Tots are a new take on the kid favorite tater tots and they get super crispy on the outside and are creamy and delicious on the inside. On nights when life is just crazy and we don’t get home until well past dinnertime, these are a great way to avoid the drive-thru because they take less than 15 minutes, everyone loves them, and I am happy that my kids are eating veggies. The new Green Giant line of Veggie Tots is also made with no artificial flavors or preservatives.

In addition to the Cauliflower Veggie Tots, Green Giant also has Broccoli and Broccoli & Cheese Tots! Plus, other delicious products like riced veggies, mashed cauliflower, and roasted veggies!

Keep an eye out for these delicious tots at Walmart, ShopRite, Food Lion, HEB, and more. They’re over with the rest of the Green Giant vegetables in the frozen veggie aisle.

I’ve been really enjoying incorporating the Cauliflower Veggie Tots into casserole-type dishes like this shepherd’s pie. They make dinner prep so much easier. Whereas with a traditional shepherd’s pie recipe, you’d have to make mashed potatoes to spread on top, you totally skip that step and just layer some Cauliflower Tots on top!

Plus, the tots get nice and crispy and who doesn’t love a crispy topping on a casserole?!
I chose to use ground turkey but feel free to use ground beef or chicken if that’s what you’re in the mood for.

Heeeey guys! Happy Monday!

How was the weekend?

I discovered that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is now on Netflix and umm, it changed my life. You guys. No one told me that it’s a musical series.

A musical!

Anyway, it’s really good and I’m not gonna tell you how many episodes I watched while I was catching up on some work that I’m waaaay behind on.
