Cauliflower Macaroni and Cheese Recipe


I’ve avoided writing about what’s going on in Japan.  I want this site to be fun, informative and full of joy.  Yet it’s hard to make your writing cheerful when your heart is breaking.  I was planning a lighthearted post on picky eaters and vegetables, and playing with a way to make cauliflower appealing to children.  Instead I just kept thinking “Comfort food, the world needs comfort food.”  So I combined the two.  This Cauliflower Mac and Cheese recipe is not only a kid friendly recipe, it combines cheesy cauliflower and macaroni and cheese, two of my favorite comfort foods.  It’s also healthy, with cauliflower replacing the pasta and milk instead of heavy cream.  If you just want the cauliflower recipe, feel free to skip to the bottom, I understand.  If you want to read about my experiences doing disaster relief and how they’ve shaped me as a person, read on.
