19 Low-Carb Cauliflower Recipes
Fantastic recipes for people on a low-carb diet. Wanting to not have all the calories. Want more veggies in your meals. Or avoiding flour. Who knew Cauliflower could be made like a bread? I certainly didn’t. I first learned about it with pizza crusts from Cauliflower. They sent me a few types of pizzes (margherita and three cheese) plus a pizza crust to make our own. I was VERY hesitant to try them. I’d seen cauliflower recipes online. A few times. But honestly, it sounds weird. Sorta gross. I’ll eat cauliflower raw but am not a huge fan of it. It has to have dip, lots of dip. So, I was hesitant to try a cauliflower pizza. Now.. I’m hooked. Very thin crust (not sure it it can be made in a thick crust) but taste just like a regular pizza. Not kidding. So I’ve been researching online for cauliflower recipes to expand and found some from other sites to share. I’ll be making these too since my kids liked the cauliflower pizza too! My daughter even made one with tofu chunks on it.

5 Unique Attributes to Living in Austin
Being in Austin is close to being in a place of diverse of things to do and experience. Considered as one hot city in Texas, the place seeks coolness and entertainment, paired with gastronomic ventures all year round. Being in a place like Austin is distinctly different from other cities in the Texas state. But you are probably living in it when you see and observe these five things.
- Barbecue everywhere
Living in Austin means you are also living with barbecue. In this side of Texas, barbecue is a way of life. Smoked meat in various joints are everywhere! You should try out and review each to know where is the best and the worst.
After indulging in barbecue, the next thing about an Austinite’s diet is Tex-Mex and margaritas.
The most popular names in this business are Matt’s Famous El Rancho, Chuy’s, Trudy’s, Vivo, and Maudie’s. Also watch out for food trailers offering these.
- Mini cars for transportation
Many believe that Austin is not good for city walking. While it is also known that Austin houses a lot of big tech companies like Facebook, Google, and Dell, it has made transportation a little difficult. Biking is one way to travel from point A to B. Because Austin is a spread out city (it has been dubbed by Forbes as one of the fastest growing cities as well), many busy people rely on mini cars for a better transportation system. Mini cars are vehicles you can use within the city and just leave it parked wherever for the next user. You need not return them after picking up.
- Parks and fitness centers
Austin living can be associated with getting fit. The place is known for more than a hundred parks where you can have an afternoon walk or an early morning jog. All in all, Austin has 220 parks. It also has lakes for water sports. Establishments offering fitness services also sprout within the city—there are about 250 gyms, restaurants serving healthy meals, and yoga studios for the fitness buff. Bike tours regularly happen too, with many tourists flocking to the city to witness.
- Barton Springs
Everyone knows that Barton Springs, a swimming pool, is being flocked to by people during summer time when the scorching heat of the sun embraces the city. Austin is known for its very hot temperatures during summer which can last up to six months. It is known for men and women who frolic by the pool and the grassy hill beside while half naked.
- Going to the movies is a lifestyle
Just like eating barbecue, moviegoers in Austin take films seriously. Live comedy, singing performances, and films are being celebrated like a special occasion. One popular movie house is the Alamo Drafthouse. Theaters like the Moody Theater, One World Theater, Zach Theater, and Austin City Limits Live are known for regular show performances.
Austin is also recognized as a haven for many artists with quite a number of galleries spread across town. Few art museums like Blanton Museum, Austin Museum of Art, and Umlauf Sculpture Gardens, are also some of the must-see establishments.

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts
Mother’s Day is Sunday and there are many out there that have not yet gone shopping. Here are a few last minute ideas for those that haven’t shopped yet. These are for moms nearby or across the states. Make sure you find a way to send love to them.
Order Flowers. Really. You can order flowers from Teleflora and they will contact a local florist, near you, to deliver freshly made flowers to our door. I ordered the Teleflora’s Artisanal Beauty Bouque in a gorgeous vase. The local flower shop, Flowers By Maria, even called to verify I would be home for delivery. I can even use the vase afterwards as a pitcher since it is food-quality grade.
CardFool has creative, fun and hilarious cards for moms, MIL’s, grandmas or your BFF’s. I know I’ll be mailing one to my grandma and giving one to my mom.
Not for all moms, but bet a few would love this shirt from Five finger Tees. I picked out this shirt for myself! They have a huge selection of nature, geeky, memes and more.
If the way to the stomach is good food than the way to the bedroom and better romance is a nice glass of wine. DuVino Wine Glasses come in a variety of humors designs. Perfect for wine lovers and a great way to show you care with a personalized wine glass. I love the height of the glass and how thick the glass it. It is sturdy and nicely. This one has a nice definition to a mom. ‘A person who does the work of twenty for free and deserves wine now.’ I’d love to have a set of all the ‘mother’ ones they have.
I love a new cookbook. Seriously. I like to try out new recipes with the kids. Discover ones I never tried. Some are trial and error. Finding recipes from other cultures and countries is fun and educational too. I love this book, Appalachian Appetite by Susi Gott Seguret. Many I’d never heard of and most I’ve never tried.
Some body-care is always good. Check out this brand new product called Sugar Texturing Spray. I’ve used salt sprays before but this is a first for me. It smells good and is a great way to add texture and volume to hair. It is great with curls too.
Give someone a relaxing bath with products by Village Naturals Aromatherapy. The Tea Tree Sweet Orange Bath Melts have shea butter and cocoa butter in them.They also have essential oils, Botanical bath tea and I love the coca butter bar that looks like a candy bar. It is a personal bath treat for some quiet time with candles and a good book in the tub.
Fun Adult Coloring Books
Adult coloring books can be so much fun. I really think are great for all ages! Grab kids and color together. Give a book to your best friend or mom. We should never outgrow coloring. It is fun, relaxing and a great way to just chat with your family. All of these are designed and made Suzy Toronto.
