Cauliflower and Roasted Corn with Chili Powder and Lime

This recipe immediately caught my attention ~ 2 of my favorite veggies, cauliflower and corn!  

I was really surprised with the goodness of this recipe the first time I tried it, and thought it was a tasty mix of ingredients.  The recipe is adapted from the “Heart Association Cookbook.”  I’ve made it with corn on the cob roasted in the oven; corn roasted in husks on the grill, and canned corn also.  Use whichever method you prefer, it’s good any method.

The recipe calls for cooking the cauliflower in chicken broth for added flavor, but what I really like in this dish are the seasonings ~ chili powder and lime which compliment the cauliflower and corn perfectly, (I added more chili powder), plus pimentos for color. 
It’s a delicious way to enjoy fresh cauliflower and corn.  I hope you like it too!

Cauliflower and Roasted Corn with Chili Powder and Lime


2 ears of corn, husks and silk removed
4 cups of cauliflower (about ½ medium head)
¼ cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
2 ounce jar diced pimentos, drained
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon light margarine
¼ teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon seasoned pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place corn on baking sheet and roast, uncovered for 15 minutes.
Let cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing off cob, and set aside.
In a large saucepan, cook cauliflower in broth until almost tender.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients.
Stir the pimento mixture and roasted corn into the cauliflower.
Cook over medium-low heat for 1-2 minutes until warmed through and cauliflower is tender.

It’s tasty!

  1. Honestly, I think we need to stop talking about our fine weather. We could find ourselves inundated with vacationers seeking ideal climes!! This looks so good and I'm anxious to try your kohlrabi recipe.


  2. Estupendo plato, se ve genial.


  3. Yum! I love cauliflower and it's been on sale the past few weeks. I can't wait to give this a try Pam!

  4. This looks yummy! Chili Powder with Cauliflower sounds so good.

  5. Pam, This recipe sounds great...corn and cauliflower with spices. The problem is that I can't stand pimentos. There must be something else I could use...perhaps a little roasted garlic? Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  6. Thanks to all of you!

    Dave, forget the pimentos and go with the garlic, or maybe bell peppers, just kidding!

  7. What a healthy and delicious recipe Pam. I've gone corn crazy this summer.

  8. Good morning Pam. Two of my faves.... Cauliflower and corn. Can't beat em! Hope your morning is going great!

    Hugs to ya

  9. Cauliflower and corn! Whoa! Two of my favorites.

  10. While I don't go out of my way to eat cauliflower, I believe I would enjoy this dish.

  11. I do go out of my way to eat cauliflower and I think this could be turned into a marvelous puree, maybe with some cheese.

  12. I've been away for a bit but I'm loving the veggie-loaded recipes! I would have never thought to put cauliflower and corn together either but what a wonderful combination it must be.

  13. The combination sounds delicious! This would make a perfect side dish!

  14. The corn, chili powder, lime flavor profile works together so well but this is the first I've seen using cauliflower too, nice spin.

  15. dear Pam, Sounds good to me.
    I hope all is well.

    Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  16. I love these seasonings. And they also taste great on a mango or jicama. Really!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
