Garlic and Paprika Roasted Cauliflower

Garlic and Paprika Roasted Cauliflower - get the recipe at
Fresh cauliflower is generously coated with garlic and paprika and then roasted until it's crisp and piping hot. Garlic and Paprika Roasted Cauliflower is a deliciously simple roasted cauliflower recipe that results in some of the most flavorful cauliflower I've ever had. This cauliflower is irresistible when piping hot still on the tray. The first time I made this, I wound up eating almost half the tray while waiting for the rest of the meal to finish cooking!

I've served Garlic and Paprika Roasted Cauliflower with dozens of meals over the past couple years. This has become one of my favorite side dishes. Try it with one of these great meals:

Sausage Hash with Cabbage, Potatoes, and Beans

Sausage Hash with Cabbage, Potatoes, and Beans - get the recipe at
Sausage Hash with Cabbage, Potatoes, and Beans is one of our go-to dinners on nights when I either don't have a dinner plan or have very little motivation to cook. Luckily, it's also one of our favorite dinners!

Hash is one of the most versatile meals I make. You can swap spinach for the cabbage, swap bacon for the sausage, skip the beans, skip the vegetables, add more vegetables, use sweet potatoes, drop an egg on top; there are countless variations and they are all delicious. Sausage is an ingredient you will always find in my refrigerator, just for meals like this one.

Pineapple BBQ Shrimp

Pineapple BBQ Shrimp - get the recipe at
Pineapple BBQ Shrimp is a skillet full of sautéed shrimp tossed in a spicy barbecue sauce with sweet chunks of pineapple and red peppers. This quick and easy meal earned two thumbs up from my whole family and best of all, it comes together in less than 15 minutes.

Like so many of our meals, this recipe was inspired by the ingredients we had on hand, plus a craving or two. My middle son had been asking for shrimp, there was a sale on pineapple, and I had an extra jar of barbecue sauce just waiting to be used. The combination of flavors was even better than I had hoped and I will definitely be making this again soon!

Homemade Cough Remedy

Homemade Cough Remedy - get the recipe at
This Homemade Cough Remedy is a spicy, honey-cider syrup potent enough to calm a cough and sooth a sore throat. Over the past two years, this handy little remedy has become one of the most popular posts on this website. As I mixed up a batch for my son last night, I decided to re-share it with all of you, as a testament to just how much we use it!

After making it all the way through the holidays without a cough, a sneeze or a fever, cold season hit us like a freight train on New Year's Day. My boys were miserable and I started to feel it as well after a couple of days. I remembered saving this Homemade Cough Remedy recipe to try, so I shook up a tiny little test batch and tested a spoonful on myself. Consider yourself warned, this is seriously spicy and potent enough to actually clear your head. Personally, I think it tastes better than any store bought syrup I've tried.

With only a handful of pantry ingredients and a few minutes effort, this Homemade Cough Remedy was sitting on my counter. I was amazed at how well it worked to completely clear our congestion. My oldest son was willing to try it as well and I couldn't believe how quickly it worked on his cough. It cleared his throat and he slept solidly through the night. Over the counter cough medicines don't even accomplish that for us!

The powerful ingredients in this remedy are common everyday items: ginger, cayenne, cider vinegar and honey. Yet they work together to create a potent remedy for cold symptoms. It's definitely worth trying before turning to the medicine cabinet once again this winter.
