Balsamic Whole Roasted Cauliflower

Balsamic Whole Roasted Cauliflower

I am crazy about easy side dishes. This one just might take the cake. Minimal prep time, and no chopping (yay!). Seriously, all you do is mix up an easy spiced balsamic drizzle and pour it on top of a whole head of fresh cauliflower. It doesn’t get much simpler than Balsamic Whole Roasted Cauliflower.

You’ll kick yourself once you try it.  Why? For not having done it before. One of those major “DUH” moments for me. Can’t wait to try this again with all types of toppings and spices. The only limitation to the roasted cauliflower dishes you can create is your imagination.

Wanna know the best part? This simple and flavor-packed side dish is low-calorie and low-carb.

Excited? Stoked? Giddy? Yes. Giddy. That’s the word I am feeling right now. Giddy about these Dr Pepper® Chicken Wings. And giddy with excitement because college football season is FINALLY here. Seriously, I adore football. It drives my family crazy, because I’m fairly vocal about it. (Fairly vocal = borderline obnoxious.)

I love everything about the game of football. The strategy. The pure luck. The wins, the losses, the drama, the tradition. I love the weather of the season, the school colors, the football parties of fall. And the FOOD.

When I first decided to start a blog, I had to pick a topic. You know, the one central theme that my blog would be about. It was a no-brainer for me. I was going to blog about football. Yep: Southern Mom in her 40’s Blogs About Football.
