Cauliflower Rice 4 Ways

Have you tried making cauliflower rice yet?! After first swapping it for the real deal in my chicken fried cauliflower rice, it quickly became a go to. It’s pretty easy to make and if you are feeling lazy, several grocery stores now carry it pre-chopped into rice form. Which has come in handy for me several times. Below I am sharing my newest creations using cauliflower rice as the base plus I linked to my other faves!

Fall weather is here which means a few things. Crisp weather, warm sweaters, comfort food and for my mister…Football Sunday. Now, I can’t say I’m a huge fan of the sport or spending the day watching it on the couch, BUT I do love the excuse to make delicious snacks for the game.

It’s (almost) officially chili season and I couldn’t be happier. As much as I love light, refreshing summer dishes, there is nothing like a hearty, comforting meal on a crisp fall day!

I previously shared my original chili recipe here but since returning from a recent trip to Portugal I was inspired to spice things up a bit with this batch by adding ground chorizo to my beef mixture.

Chorizo was definitely one of my favorite things to eat in Portugal I love how they prepare it on a flaming grill (I think the official name is Chourico a Bombeiro). Anyways, while doing our first grocery shop after the trip, I was planning on making Chili, and as soon as we came across the Chorizo, it was destined to go in the mix.

I seriously can’t believe how quickly this summer is coming to an end. It went by way to fast, but not without great food! I’ll be kicking off September in beautiful Portugal but didn’t want to leave you hanging without a crazy good appetizer to make for your long weekend plans.

This whipped feta dip is something from heaven, let me tell you! And I have to give a shoutout to the talented Salt and Lavender for inspiration. She is one of my favorite foodies on Instagram, so I knew I had to try the recipe as soon as I saw it. And now, I am sharing it with you.
