As I mentioned yesterday, while I was at home last week I tried a few new foodie things.
First up was a Cauliflower Pizza Crust that I found here from Meals and Moves. I had been wanting to try for a while. I think I had a mind-block that this was going to be very involved recipe, but it turned out to be really easy! Definitely will be making this again.
I pretty much followed the recipe to a T, but I used Daiya (mozzarella flavor) instead of real cheese.
I sort of expected the recipe to yield more, but it was the perfect amount for my dad and I. Yum!!!
Next up was Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies that I found here (FYI – this blog has a TON of amazing- looking GF recipes…will be revisiting again very soon 🙂 ) They turned out AWESOME!
Now onto the new-to-me things I found at the local grocery store….
Santa Claus Melon
I really like melon. All melons. I was a bit apprehensive about buying this melon because I didn’t know anything about it and there is nothing more disappointing than cutting into an under-ripe melon. This was definitely not the case for this melon, though! I am so glad I tired it…really may be one of my new favorites! So sweet.
Another thing I came across in the store was Lightlife’s Fakin Bacon. I know making your own ‘bacon’ from tempeh is pretty easy, but I thought for convenience’s sake I’d give this a shot first. I really enjoyed it, and surprisingly, so did my dad! It really was simple – just put it on the pan.
My only qualm is that it is not actually gluten-free – the soy sauce they use contains wheat. Side note – a few nights ago I had Chinese food and I think I went on soy sauce overload – I had a huge headache later…maybe because of gluten?? No idea.
Anyway, I’m sure this product only contains a very small amount because I felt fine after, but it would be just as easy to make on my own.
I’m off to shower and hit the hay! Have a great night!
