Tuesday’s Tip with The Kitchen Whisperer – Keeping your cauliflower white during cooking!

Love cauliflower but hate how it loses its beautiful white color during cooking? On today’s Tuesday’s Tip with The Kitchen Whisperer I’m going to share with you how to keep your cauliflower white during cooking!

Growing up if we were served cauliflower, it was a punishment. I hated that funky thing. It looked like a brain and tasted like mush. And it was a yucky, dingy color when cooked. However throughout my travels and cooking experiences I learned a trick along the way that will help you when you’re cooking cauliflower to retain its beautiful white coloring. And with this method you can actually amp up the natural sweetness of it too!

Cauliflower, in the past 3 years, really became popular in the food world. With the rise gluten-free, grain-free and other items cauliflower because the new ‘it’ veggie. It was used in lieu of mashed potatoes, as a pizza crust, as rice, as a puree and about 37 other items. But one thing they all had in common was they all didn’t have that beautiful cauliflower white color any longer when boiled.

Are you a cauliflower fan?

Tuesday’s Tip with The Kitchen Whisperer – How to peel a kiwi

I love kiwis but I HATED trying to peel them. Now that I found this handy little trick to do it, they are super easy!  Find out today’s edition of Tuesday’s Tip with The Kitchen Whisperer on how to easily peel a kiwi!

Oh kiwi how I love your fat little fuzzy self. You’re sweet with a bit of tartness. You’re funky feeling, shaped but quintessential for an epic fruit salad. But dear lord you’re a pain in the butt to peel.  Now if you’re like me when it came to peeling kiwi you’d use a sharp knife, cut of the top and bottom and then attempt to peel it. First you’d try a veggie peeler and nope, doesn’t work. Then you’d use a sharp parry knife only you’d end up cutting off half of the flesh leaving you with a peel kiwi pretty much the size of a large grape.


BUT I have a handy trick for you to peel it easily.  All you need are a knife and spoon!

Happy Sunday TKW Family! This post is going to be quick as I’m recuperating from shoulder surgery right now and Mr. Fantabulous is in charge of all meals and making sure posts get published. I took the liberty of scheduling a few of these the first 2 weeks following my surgery as I know I won’t be able to type or pretty much function.

HOWEVER I’ll make sure he posts on Facebook my status and if I can sneak in some way to type to you guys I will however it’ll be all lefthanded and well it may be laden with typos.

If this surgery is anything like my last 2 rotator cuff surgeries I’ll be in a good bit of pain the next few weeks which means I may be slow in posting items. Just please be patient with me. I have a few items already written up and scheduled to post because I can’t leave you guys hanging for recipes.

2 days post-op now and Mr. Fantabulous is in charge!

Grandma’s Old Fashioned Boiled Dressing

A traditional classic slaw dressing that is 2 generations old. Grandma’s Old Fashioned Boiled Dressing had zero and incredible flavor!  It’s creamy, tangy, peppery and perfectly delicious!  

Grandma was a rock star in the kitchen. She took all of 5′ nothin’ but man she was a giant in the kitchen. This recipe is iconic of her. It was creamy, sweet, with a hint of sass and went beautifully with everything. Grandma used this dressing on her potato and egg salads often when she was out of mayo. I, was always thankful when she was out mayo as I’m not a big fan of it. This dressing, there’s just something so unique about the flavor and the way it kind of hugs the foods.

This dressing, to be honest, I would have never thought of to use on anything other than my potato salad or zippy egg salad. It wasn’t until I was at work and tried that classic broccoli salad. It looked awesome but that first bite, all I tasted was mayo.  Yeah, no… I could do better.

You’ll fall in love with this dressing!!!
