Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Pancakes

chocolate chip pancakesGaby woke up from a nap one day this week and in the sweetest little voice ever, asked for pancakes for her snack.  I didn’t have any on hand in the refrigerator and didn’t have the heart to tell her no… So, naturally I pulled out my mixing bowl and started whipping her up some pancakes!  I aim to please!  While I was mixing away, I saw her out of the corner of my eye digging around in my baking drawer where I keep all of my baking ingredients.  There she stood with a big smile on her face holding a bag of chocolate chips!  She’s a girl after my own heart!

Perfect Tomato Sauce

Sweet & Sour Cauliflower

sweet and sour cauliflowerI must be totally honest here and say one thing about CAULIFLOWER.  It’s not my favorite vegetable.  I’m really not a big fan of it at all.  Although, I do love it if it’s riced or mashed and smeared with a ton of cream and butter.  Other than that, I rarely buy it.  As of late, I’ve had this “problem” with buying things just because they’re on sale. (Please don’t ask Omar about this.)  I don’t know what it is about that SALE sign or sticker, but I’m a sucker for it.  All that to say… Whole Foods had their organic cauliflower on sale this week and I couldn’t resist buying it.  I tried not to look at that sale sign, but it screamed my name!
