FEATURED RECIPE
SMOKEY CAULIFLOWER

I want to start by saying that before I tasted this dish, I thought I didn’t like cauliflower.  Since I didn’t like cauliflower, I never made it for my family.  Haha!  That’s ALL changing now!  This recipe tops my list as one of my favorite veggie side dishes of all time.  It’s best if cooked in an air fryer but this recipe can also be prepared in the oven.  I DO recommend getting an air fryer for so many awesome reasons. To access the recipe for Smokey Cauliflower, visit DeniseHallerbach.com.
