IISc researchers have found that tomatoes get infected with Salmonella typhimurium, which cause gastroenteritis, when the bacteria enter the plant through tiny openings that form on the main root for the lateral roots to emerge. Hence, the bacteria are found inside tomatoes and cannot be removed by washing. As salinity increases the number of lateral roots […]

This article appeared in my WordPress reader and I thought it was worth sharing the link. I have not made nor tested any of the recipes. Yet.
I’m only two pounds heavier after two Thanksgiving meals.
But I have to wear my “fat” jeans because my “skinny” jeans are too tight.
Thus the search for veggie recipes.
What do you do when you want to surprise your friends with a new dish? You think of something that they probably never had, never thought they would like, and make it. You sneak it in as a side dish. Serve it with something familiar like Maple Soy Roasted Salmon. You make…
Hipster food. And if you’re thinking to yourself that cauliflower can’t possibly be hip and trendy I actually found a restaurant that has whole head roasted on their menu for seven bucks.
Here’s what I made:
Roasted Cauliflower with Parmesan
One head cauliflower
Extra virgin olive oil
Shredded Parmesan Cheese
Salt and black pepper
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Remove the green outer leaves and stalks from the cauliflower head. Tear and cut the cauliflower into florets, removing any hard tiny stalks. Each piece should be about a US quarter in width. Golf ball size is too big.
- Place the florets into a baking/roasting pan with sides.
- Drizzle the cauliflower with olive oil. Toss with a wooden spoon. You want a nice thin coating of oil on each piece.
- Lightly salt and pepper and sprinkle with a hint of thyme.
- Generously sprinkle granulated garlic over all.
- Place in the oven and roast for approximately 35-40 minutes. Shake the pan every 10 minutes or so to ensure most of the surfaces of each floret get browned (this is why you want a pan with sides).
- When nicely browned add a handful of shredded Parmesan cheese over the cauliflower. Roast for an additional 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
- Transfer the cauliflower to a serving bowl and add more Parmesan.
Unfortunately this dish is Not Tiny Taste Tester Approved. She was not present at the dinner.

Tofu was number one on the list.

Protein is important, and many people don’t get enough. If you’re not sure exactly how much protein you need then there’s a free guide and meal plan…

I thought I’d re-post this post from Hurry The Food Up featuring several ricotta pancake recipes. When I mentioned to a friend I gave a sample of my Ricotta Buttermilk Pancakes to the Tiny Taste Tester I got the following response:
PANCAKES! You have to start them young. Hopefully if you raise ’em right they get to the peanut butter and pancake pinnacle of pancake heaven.
