Pepperoni Pizza Cauliflower Bake – another Pinterest Inspired Recipe

WP_20130727_008

Last week I was on Pinterest and saw a number of people pin this recipe. Up until a few years ago I HATED cauliflower, or at least I thought I did until I tried it again – and now I love it. I use it in stir fry, add it to veggie soups, but THIS recipe from a GREAT site called I breathe, I’m hungry looked amazing so I had to try it.

I did modify a little. I used skim milk instead of heavy cream and I used Hormel Brand turkey pepperoni and it still turned out fantastic!

In other food related news. I’m excited to participate in my first Food Swap. I’m going to the Chicago Food Swap which this month is in my hometown about 5 minutes from my house. Basically how it works, is I make something and when I get there I try to swap what I have with what someone else brought.

If you would like to participate next month – then check out their site here Chicago Food Swap. It’s at a different location every month.

Have you ever gone to a food swap before??
