Mashed Cauliflower Stuffed Portabella Caps
Reformulating recipes to fit my new Weight Watcher lifestyle has been a unique challenge. Trying to use old recipes and make them point friendly means thinking outside the box.
I am almost one month on Weight Watchers and am feeling several things……
- Happy that I have stuck to it….I’m not much on will power where food is concerned.
- Glad to say I have lost 8 pounds.
- Unhappy to say I have only lost 8 pounds….just wish it was coming off faster

Whole Roasted Loaded Cauliflower
Cauliflower is still a shinning star in the food world. Pearly white heads of chunky florets, just begging for new recipes. Whole, in florets, mashed, or riced, the possibilities are endless.
I’m not sure if I have told this story before….after almost five years, I may have started to repeat….or maybe its old timers.
When I was kid, we all went over the river and through the woods to Grandmothers house. Ok, we did go over a river, but she didn’t live in the woods, and we called her Grandma. Anyway, Holidays were spent at her house, and she cooked. My Grandma was an awesome cook, you know the old fashioned, down home kind of cook <3. Continue reading “Whole Roasted Loaded Cauliflower”
Spicy Sweet BBQ Sauce
Right now it may seem that summer will never get here, but soon it will be grilling time. Will you be ready???
Summer grilling requires a knock your socks off BBQ Sauce…….Spicy Sweet BBQ Sauce is your new go-to BBQ.
Sweet, spicy, and thick this sauce will give you perfect bbq chicken, juicy tangy, sweet, spicy, ribs. And in a recipe I will post soon, oh what it does to a flank steak.
The debate over bbq sauce is never ending, Alabama White Sauce, the array of Carolina Sauces, Kansas City Sauce, or Texas Style, all boast being the best.
Personally I prefer a sweet sauce with a touch of spice. I like a sauce with brown sugar for it’s molassesy flavor……when you grill with it you get those crispy burnt edges that make bbq.
Spice is equally as important, just a touch of back ground heat and besides with Tim….it always needs to be spicy!
No matter your grill choice get ready for the summer BBQ season with our Spicy Sweet BBQ Sauce!
1 – 20 ounce bottle of your favorite ketchup
½ tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon ground mustard
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
½ cup brown sugar, lightly packed
½ tablespoon black pepper
½ cup apple cider vinegar
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried red chili flakes
Whisk all the ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat
and bring to a low boil.
Reduce heat to simmer. Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes, whisking occasionally. Watch closely during the last 5-10 minutes to make sure the sauce does not burn. The same will thicken during those last minutes of cooking.
Remove from heat and allow to cool. Use right away or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month.
