When this website goes “down” and can’t be accessed, I get an email saying “My Daily Bread Body and Soul is down.”  When it is back online I get a similar email saying “it is back up.”  This happens occasionally for a variety of reasons and I don’t get too worked up over it.  But, for the past two days I have received an unusual number of these messages.  I didn’t think much about it until this morning when I signed on to the administrative part of my website.  Much to my surprise I saw a graph that shows I have received between 3,000 and 4,000 new views a day to my blog since Wednesday!

What is happening?
  My Grandmother’s Kitchen.org – that’s what.


After contacting me for my permission, they posted my Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts on their website and on their Facebook page.  Wow!  Blessings poured out on me because of the exposure this is giving this little blog that could! God is so good to me.  Having Him working behind the scenes in my life is the best part of my day.  Having Him front and center in my life is the greatest gift of all!

How great is Thy goodness,
Which Thou hast stored up for those who fear Thee,
Which Thou hast wrought for those who take refuge in Thee,
Before the sons of men! (Psalm 31:19)

Speaking of Facebook, my friend Peggy shared a post on her wall with a picture and recipe for Loaded Cauliflower.  It caught my attention because I just happened to have a head of cauliflower in my refrigerator.  You know what I mean?  Any other day I might have looked past it, but not that day because I needed to cook up a head of cauliflower.

I changed the recipe a bit.  I added broccoli ( I love broccoli).  I added caramelized onions – for the same reason. Yum.  I told Peggy I was going to “lighten” it a little.  I didn’t really make that happen, instead I cranked up the flavor a bunch with the caramelized onions.

When I printed out the recipe from Facebook it did not print the origin of the recipe and so I am sorry I cannot give credit to wherever this came from originally.

My suggestion to you … go buy a head of cauliflower and some broccoli, you are going to want to make this!

Have a blessed weekend,

  3. Place cauliflower in a microwaveable baking dish, add ½" water and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 5 to 7 minutes or until cauliflower is tender crisp. Remove from water and cut into small chunks.
  4. Do the same with broccoli, drain, cut into bite size pieces.

* Cauliflower and broccoli should equal about 6 to 7 cups. If you have more or less just adjust other ingredients up or down.
Onions are optional.
Sliced mushrooms or sliced jalapeno peppers would be good addition.
