So I was scanning through Pinterest recipes again (one of my favorite bored pass times) & stumbled across this interesting recipe for Easy Cheesy Cauliflower Gratin Recipe (Low Carb and Gluten Free). Now I am no fan of cooking in the microwave but it was the recipe that perked my interest. So i went to the store, I bought a couple items, came home & started a new delicious creation I like to call “Cauli’Cheese”.

This creation was so yummy my little 4-year old & I gobbled it up so fast I wasn’t sure if we really had just eaten.

Sweet Potato Coconut Curry “Vegan”

I am part of a Vegetarian Wholefoods Group on Facebook & one of the group members posted a recipe for Sweet Potato Coconut Curry, she said her toddle loved it! So I googled some recipes on Pinterest (click here to view the one I went off of) and decided to use that as the outline for my own creation. I was so impressed with the prep time, the cooking method & most of all I was so impressed that once my 4 year old toddler son got one taste of the Sweet Potato Coconut Curry he started devouring his entire portion!
