I was going to make Popcorn Cauliflower tonight to accompany Bacon Wrapped Sliders, but I needed the oven to cook the sliders. So we had fried cauliflower instead and what a treat it was. I made this with 1/2 tsp. House Seasoning, but will use 1 tsp. next time. It was good, but better with extra salt after frying. Delicious dipped in ranch dressing or honey mustard.
Adapted from Cooks.com
1 med. size cauliflower
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 c. flour
1/2 to 1 tsp. House Seasoning*
1/2 c. milk

Oil for frying
Salt and parmesan cheese if desired
Wash and trim cauliflower. Break into flowerets. Put eggs, flour, and House Seasoning in a bowl. Combine milk and butter and add to flour mixture to make a batter. Dip flowerets into batter. Fry breaded flowerets a few at a time, in hot oil. Serve hot. Sprinkle with salt and Parmesan cheese if desired.
1 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder
Stir the ingredients together and store in shaker or other container.
If you make many Paula Deen recipes, you will use this seasoning in many of her recipes. If not, you can reduce the amounts of your seasonings so that you will make a smaller amount. Here are the amounts you will need to make a 1/4 recipe of House Seasoning.
Smaller recipe for House Seasoning:
1/4 cup salt
1 Tbsp. black pepper
1 Tbsp. garlic powder

As a BzzAgent, I was sent a Natureluxe silk foundation and Natureluxe gloss balm to try for myself. I have been using mineral powder foundation for about 5 years. I didn't think I would use the Natureluxe silk foundation very long since I didn't use liquid foundation anymore. To my surprise, it did not feel like a liquid foundation. It is very lightweight and feels like I have nothing on, but gives very good coverage. I have now been using this foundation for at least a month and really like it.
I also like the Natureluxe gloss balm. It is a perfect meld of lip gloss and lip balm. Just the right amount of color and moisture without being overpowering. I don't wear lipstick anymore because it is too thick and too much color for me, but I love to wear lip balm for moisture. I like the lightweight color of lip gloss, but it is often too sticky and does not stay on very well. This is a very nice combination that offers lightweight color, moisturization, and it does not have that sticky feel of lip gloss.
These are both great products that I would buy. Here is some more info on both of them.

I was sent five coupons and found one in the paper for $2.00 off Natureluxe Silk Foundation. I will send one coupon to each of the first six responders. Just comment on this post letting me know that you would like a coupon.
I did not receive compensation for this review, but I was given the product to review and the product coupons to giveaway. All opinions are my own.
I usually try not to get too personal on my blog, but decided I must write a tribute to our beloved Aunt Alice.
Almost three years ago we moved in next door to our Great Aunt Alice. She welcomed us with such love and hospitality. My boys formed a special relationship with her and my oldest loved to visit her frequently for snacks and conversation. They would sit at her kitchen table together.
One day this Spring, he came running into the house and asked me where his library books were. I gave them to him and he ran back to Aunt Alice's with his books. He came home a while later and said that Aunt Alice read his stories with him.
When I had my ultrasound for our second child, my husband was unable to go with me. Aunt Alice went with me so I wouldn't be alone and loved every minute. It was the first time that she had watched a baby on an ultrasound. She was thrilled and I was glad to have someone to share the special moment. She treated me to lunch afterwards. She was always so generous.
We lost our dear Aunt and good friend a little over a week ago. We treasure the memories that we have of her and are blessed to have spent so much time with her. We love you dearly Aunt Alice.
Today, one of my readers asked me what kind of paper towels I used for making baby wipes. She had made them and thought they were thin. The first batch I made were thin too. I used Scotts select-a-size when I made my first batch of wipes and they were too thin and small. I used them until they were gone, but they were not very effective. The best towels I have found for making wipes are Bounty (not select-a-size). I buy them in large bulk packages. You can get good deals when they are on sale and use coupons.
Also, you will need a tall round or square container that will hold a roll of paper towels that has been cut in half. I use a large serrated knife (reserved for only cutting paper towels) to cut the roll in half. I use scissors to remove the cardboard in the center of the roll. I have forgotten to remove the cardboard center a few times. It slips right out when it is wet from the homemade wipes solution. I have two canisters and can make two rolls at a time so that I can have wipes in more than one room of the house and so that I never run out. The canisters that I use were around $6 each at Wal-mart. They are the Better Homes and Garden brand.
Here is the link again for the Homemade Baby Wipes. These are great baby wipes and will save you a lot of money. Feel free to send any questions my way.
These rolls are really simple to make and so delicious. My preschooler even helped me put the ingredients in the bread machine and shape the rolls. These are also wonderful the next morning with butter and honey. Thanks Money Saving Mom for the recipe!

Tonight we made homemade pizza again. We have been making it every week or two since it is so easy and so good. I didn't have any store bought pizza sauce on hand tonight, so we made our own. This is a really simple recipe that I found online at allrecipes.com and slightly modified.
