I am sorry for the lack of posts the last few months. My life has changed from a quiet stay at home mother, to a busy stay at home mother. With our new house, one child in school now, and a very very busy toddler it never ends. I no longer have time to share awesome recipes but will continue to cook. Please feel free to follow me on pinterest or facebook to keep up with what I am cooking. You all should be able to access my recipes still, if I do this right!

I am afraid that this is goodbye for now. After I year, 300 posts, and 35,000 views Mr.Picky blog will be shutting down. It is time to renew my web server and I have barely broke even. I will continue to hold on to the domain name and might pick up at some point later down the road. So don’t lose all hope and write all your favorite recipes down as you will not be able to look them up. The site will be up for a few weeks with no new posts so everyone has a chance to write their favorite recipes.
My purpose one year ago was to try to find a supplemental income while staying home and tending to my children. The labor and writing have become more of a chore than fun at this point. My daughter is now in school which comes with a whole new level of involvement. We have our new house to work on and a very funny puppy that thinks he needs every bit of attention.
Writing has never been a strong trait of mine but I did enjoy sharing my recipes and stories. I hope that if you got anything at all out of my blog you enjoyed a new recipe and maybe a laugh. Continue cooking and trying new recipes. Mr.Picky is not as picky as he used to be, so if you have a picky eater in your life continue to try new things.
To my family and friends that have supported my blog and recipes, thank you. Don’t forget if you need ideas for dinner give me a call and I will tell you what I am cooking.
I found this wonderfully sounding recipe one day for a roasted cauliflower soup. You roasted the heavily seasoned cauliflower and added it to your soup when it was almost done. The recipe turned out to be a bust, out of it came the wonderfully seasoned roasted cauliflower though.
Before I added the finished cauliflower to the soup I tasted it, the kids tasted it and we couldn’t get enough. It was like eating candy or potato chips. None of us could stop. Unfortunately I added it to the soup with was so bland and needed doctoring just to eat it for dinner. I tossed the soup recipe but kept the first part and make this as a side dish often.
Seasoned Roasted Cauliflower:
- 1 large head of cauliflower, broken into florets
- 2-3 Tbs of olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic, pressed or chopped
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Toss all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix until evenly coated. Sometimes I even shake it all together in a gallon bag.
Spread on a foil lined baking sheet, and roast for 30-40 minutes or until tender. Stirring once or twice to evenly brown.
