The cauliflower is tossed with a little olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper then roasted in the oven which gives it a nutty flavor that’s so good, especially when topped with toasted bread crumbs. If you want more cauliflower recipes, this Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower is also a great option.

A few weeks ago, I traded in my apron for some heels and slimming jeans as part of a photo shoot for Jones New York. I was transformed from by the magic of Gregg @greggmakeupnyc who’s celebrity list is quite extensive, I knew I was in good hands.
I’ve been on sets of photo shoots before because pre-Skinnytaste I worked as a graphic designer, but getting to sit in the hair and makeup chair, and having a stylist dress me was a whole lot more fun!
You can see the final image below, I am wearing their slimming denim jeans with a pretty blouse. This was part of an online campaign where they photographed three other bloggers; a chef, a decorator and a stylist.
This was so much fun, and quite different than spending the day in my kitchen. And what’s a girl to do in NYC when all dressed up, with their hair and makeup done? Go shopping of course! I stopped for lunch, and did some prop shopping before heading to the Union Square Greenmarket where I picked up a beautiful head of cauliflower.
After a day in the city, I was happy to get home to my family and make them a delicious meal – Garlic Lover’s Roast Beef with this roasted cauliflower, the perfect ending to a great day.
