Hey Meg -- thanks for the shout-out! I'm so glad you liked the ginger cookies. That's one of mine that I've been tweaking for YEARS, and this year I think it really hit its stride, which is why I posted it. This year is already so full of good things for me (come by my site and you'll see what I mean ;)

But I think I will absolutely have to try some orechiette and cauliflower. Yum. All good things to you in the new year.


Ooooh....thanks for this! My son loves cauliflower and I have exhausted my abilities to keep it interesting (how many gratins can one woman make?).

Will have to give this a shot, esp. since it also contains pasta, another favorite around here.
