Ahhh carbs. You will forever be my weakness. How anyone can turn down creamy pasta, warm bread, or crunchy potatoes is beyond me. The idea of being on a low-carb/no-carb diet gives me the shakes. So I eat another piece of bread and everything is right with the world. This roasted garlic no-knead bread is everything I want from my carbs. It’s easy to throw together (it has maybe 5 minutes of hands-on time, even less if you have roasted garlic on hand) and bakes up fairly quickly. Plus the flavors are spot on. I’ve been dreaming about stirring sweet and caramelly roasted garlic into bread, and the results are heavenly.
The fact that I love soup has been pretty well documented around here. Plus, I am completely cauliflower obsessed. Like, I can’t get enough, always have it in my fridge, could eat a head of cauliflower and call it a meal, kind of obsessed. So it should come as no surprise that I absolutely adore this soup. I’d heard of cauliflower soup before, but I’d never even tasted any, let alone made it myself. So when I had a head of cauliflower that needed to be used up and no plans for lunch, I decided to pull the trigger on this recipe. Good lord, I cannot believe I waited so long. The soup is super easy to make and SO incredibly flavorful.
You guys. I mentioned last week how I was in Indianapolis working on the set of Ben’s latest film. Well, we wrapped late Friday night, and it’s taken me this long to really process everything that happened. In a good way! I could not be more proud of what our team accomplished. I was in charge of food (I may or may not have made 24 dozen cookies for the week…) and social media, but what I did was nothing compared to the rest of our crew. Shooting SARGE was a huge undertaking. The production had so many moving parts, and seeing our unbelievably talented team come together to make Ben’s dream a reality was so, so special. This project has been part of my life for almost 2 years, so to see it finally come to fruition was incredibly emotional. It will still be several months before we have a finished film to submit to festivals, but it’s going to be worth the wait. Oh, and I definitely cried during Ben’s wrap speech to the team. #noshame
So please forgive me that I didn’t get this blood orange pound cake to you sooner. You need it in your life before blood oranges disappear again. It’s ridiculously moist and so delicious, plus the color is spot-on for this weekend’s holiday. Who doesn’t love pink cake?!
