Cauliflower Breakfast Risotto


Waaay back in 2011, I posted this breakfast risotto recipe.  Filled with rice, breakfast sausage, and Parmesan cheese, it's a hearty one-pot breakfast and is a delicious way to start the day.  Fast-forward nearly 8 years later, and I'm eating considerably fewer carbs - I'm not on any sort of keto or low-carb diet, but if I can sub in a vegetable where there wouldn't otherwise be one, I'm game.  Since I've been playing around with cauliflower rice lately, I wondered if I could turn it into something resembling risotto.

Flor de Jamaica Agua Fresca

Memorial Day weekend is upon us!  After what seemed like an endlessly gray, rainy, cold spring, the temperamental Mother Nature decided to cooperate and grace us with sun and warmth just in time for the holiday.  It seemed a fitting time to make an agua fresca - literally translated to "fresh water" - a refreshing beverage to keep on hand for the warmer weather.
