I have a confession to make…I might have made this confession before, but I will say it again. We rarely eat vegetables. You would think since I am a mom, I would make sure we eat them, but I just hardly ever make them. My kids do like raw vegetables, like carrots & broccoli dipped in ranch or hummus. We occasionally have vegetables like that for lunch with our sandwiches, but vegetables every night with dinner hardly ever happens. I need to get better at it. I really do like vegetables, way more than I did growing up, so I don’t know why I skip it.

Anyway, we made this Roasted Cauliflower Au Gratin for dinner one night with some grilled chicken & they were absolutely incredible. I think roasting them paired with the cheese sauce made them extra desirable. This is another recipe made easy with Shirley J Whisk Bliss. I love it! Whisk Bliss dissolves easily in water & all you have to do is boil it to thicken it up. I over guessed how much sauce we would need for this recipe so it’s quite saucy in the pictures, but I adjusted the recipe for you all.

Don’t forget to enter the giveaway. It ends at midnight tomorrow, so you better get to entered. You could win some Whisk Bliss to make this with your dinner!
