This morning I made this cauliflower and thought some of my Spark Friends might also enjoy it. I can't honestly say how many servings it makes since DH loves it and eats it frequently. You don't consume all of the oil and that contains most of... Read more

First of all, I will say I am a person who is on my feet from the time I get up until I go to bed. One of my SP goals is to sit down and eat my meals, because I have a habit of doing other things while eating. Four weeks ago today, I took a... Read more
