Buffalo Cauliflower Salad

In this salad I tried to pack in some super veggies to make this salad satisfying. 
1/4 cup buffalo sauce (preservative free)
1 head of cauliflower 
1tbsp  blue cheese 
2 tbsp edamame  
1/2 cup chopped iceberg lettuce 
1/4 cup red leaf kale 
Ranch or blue cheese dressing 

Start by cleaning and chopping your cauliflower. Spread out on a baking sheet.  Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees. I like mine still a bit more firm. Cook longer if you wish. 
Toss with buffalo sauce set to side. Assemble other ingredients for salad in a bowl. Put one fourth of buffaloed cauliflower on salad and top with your choice of dressing. Make additional salads or save remaining cauliflower for later.

Gluten-Free Bakeries

The new trends in food are spreading across the country.  So many people are finding they have food allergies or that their children are suffering. Studies are showing how some people have gluten sensitivities that can effect the way they feel.

With all of the new Gluten -Free trends bakeries and starting to cater to the food allergy community.    Many offer gluten free, egg free, and nut free items.    
For a child with allergies it effects every part of their life.  Planning on food before they go to a friends house.  How to deal with not being able to eat at a party.  When they find places that cater to their needs it is so exciting for them.  I know the first time my daughter was able to buy food from the freezer section (aka pre made meals)  she was over the moon excited.  I know a bakery that caters to your child's needs can make a birthday spectacular.
