Cauliflower Wild Rice Recipe

The other day I was making my Pork Chops with Creamy Mushroom and Garlic Sauce, and my favorite side to serve with pork is wild rice.  You know the one I'm talking about, the old school Uncle Ben's Long Grain Wild Rice kind.  Oh man I love that stuff, but like everyone else I am trying to lighten things up and cut those cards, so I decided to try and find a cauliflower rice version.  To my surprise I couldn't find anything on Pinterest so I though "Mandee, you're a food blogger, YOU DO IT!"  


Well, I'm so excited to say that with a little experimenting I have come up with a DELICIOUS Cauliflower Wild Rice Recipe that is so herbaceous and full of flavor I dare say you won't even miss the real thing!  I can't wait to share it with you so...

Pork Chops with a Creamy Mushroom and Garlic Sauce Recipe

How to Make Homemade Chicken and Gnocchi Soup Recipe

This past weekend winter decided to show up to my small West Virginia town.  We got about three inches of snow, so that can only mean one thing...soup for dinner. I was looking through the Soup and Salads portion of my menu and I came across a Chicken and Gnocchi Soup with Spinach that I published back in 2014.  As I become more skilled and confident in the kitchen I like to go back and update some of my older posts and this one could definitely use an update!
