After baking pizza on the grill, I’m totally hooked on pizza vs burgers or hot dogs for a barbecue! So you’ll notice some yummy Ristorante Pizza by Dr. Oetker on my patriotic party table. It’s the best for grilling because of the delicious thin crust.

For a low carb option this 4th of July, this veggie tray is one of the easiest things to make! Along with the American flag vegetable tray and grilled pizzas, I made my favorite dill dip recipe and turned it blue to complete the American flag design.

How Do You Make An American Flag Vegetable Tray?

Making this vegetable tray is as easy as 1,2,3! I have to admit that dipping the delicious crispy pizza into the dill dip is very tasty! I found these cute red, white and blue containers at Michaels and they were perfect for serving the grilled pizza.

Can you guess what I made the stars from? They are radishes cut with a small star fondant cutter! You could use cucumbers, but they won’t be as white. A star cookie cutter would be great too.

How Did You Make the Dill Dip Blue?

I added blue food coloring to my dill dip. I think using a blue sandwich container also helped it look bright colored. You’ll want to gradually add a few drops of food coloring until you get the desired blue you like. Get a blue container like mine on Amazon here.

Delicious Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

I’ve jumped on the cauliflower band wagon and now can’t get enough of this amazing Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower recipe! If you have never liked cauliflower before, then this is the first recipe you should try. With only 50 calories per serving, it’s worth every spicy bite!

In our home, we love all things spicy, especially Buffalo sauce. I think my son goes through a bottle a week! This healthy version of fried cauliflower is up there with my favorite Buffalo chicken dip. As I’m trying to get my family to eat more vegetables, this Roasted Cauliflower has definitely been a hit.

For example, right after taking photos of this recipe, I handed a cup full to my husband. He said “Is this cauliflower? No thanks!” I convinced him to try it and he ate the whole cup! Believe me… it’s good!

Why is Cauliflower so Popular?

Cauliflower is the hot new vegetable. I’m seeing it everywhere recently bought some tasty cauliflower sandwich thins to replace bread. Seeing it everywhere got me wondering why is it so popular? Basically, it comes down to the fact that cauliflower has a similar texture to potatoes, but without all the carbs. With so many people on specific diets such as Keto and limiting carbs, cauliflower become the new potato!

It also has almost as much vitamin C as oranges, plus high in fiber and water, which are important for preventing constipation, maintaining a healthy digestive tract, and lowering the risk of colon cancer.

Crispy Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

Air Fried Cauliflower

With all of the great health benefits of cauliflower, I had to come up with a recipe for my air fryer. You don’t need an air fryer for this recipe as I have both the oven and air fryer recipe for you. But it’s so much quicker in the air fryer, that it might make you want to run out and buy one! We use our air fryer so much that I need a second one and I’m dying to get this 8 qt extra large air fryer soon.

How to Choose the Best Fresh Cauliflower

When choosing fresh cauliflower, know that it should have a firm head with no dark spots and bright green leaves attached to the stem. You can store it in the refrigerator in a plastic bag for up to 5 days.

How Should You Serve Roasted Cauliflower?

This Buffalo roasted cauliflower is delicious both cold or hot. Serve it as an appetizer with blue cheese dipping sauce, a side dish with your dinner, loaded in a sandwich or make as a snack when you are craving something savory.

We have had numerous wraps for lunch lately, as I am always stocked with flour tortillas. Seriously, you can make any sandwich combination and use a tortilla. I was hankering for a BLT sandwich, but my kids had used the last of the loaf of bread the day before on peanut butter sandwiches… but hey, I had flour tortillas, avocados and lemons. I decided to give it a go and really, this BLT wrap was so yummy! And bonus, my kids loved it.

Quick and Easy Homemade Guacamole

I have a new-found love of avocado and each time I head to the grocery store, I am buying four or five at a time. I love the creaminess of avocados. They are just so refreshing!

BLT wraps with easy homemade guacamole recipe. Bacon, lettuce and tomato wraps.

For the easy chunky homemade guacamole, I used one avocado, the juice from one lemon, two tablespoons of sour cream and a little salt and pepper to taste.

Using a spoon, mash and mix everything together. I like mine chunky, and really, the avocado is so creamy, the chunks melt in your mouth.

How to make BLT Wraps

For the wrap, cook a few slices of bacon and cut into chunks or crumble. Slice fresh tomato and cut up a bit of lettuce. I love lettuce with color and texture, so I purchased a small package called Artisan Lettuce I got at the grocery.

Why You Should Eat Salmon

When you are feeling sluggish, salmon is the perfect brain food. It’s an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals, but it’s the omega-3 fatty acids that will give you the brain boost. These fatty acids are thought to contribute to healthy brain function,  along with being good for your heart, joints and general wellbeing. Eating fish may reduce the risk of heart disease as well.
