The Need for No-Knead

One of my favorite things, especially to go with a hearty stew or soup, is a nice piece of crusty bread. You know the kind I'm talking about - crunchy on the outside and airy, soft on the inside. The kind of rustic bread just begging for you to tear off a piece and devour.

The Beauty of Cauliflower Crust

Lately I have been seeing recipes for cauliflower crust pizza popping up all over Pinterest and Facebook. I have to admit that I was skeptical. Very skeptical.

I like cauliflower, but I just wasn't sure it would make for a good crust base. Yet, at the same time I was intrigued and couldn't resist giving it a try.

A Taste of Bistro 7 in Wilton

It's hard to believe, but sometimes Renato and I aren't together. Shocker, I know. Recently while he was away on business, I decided to throw on my party shoes, grab a friend and head to a VIP tasting dinner at Bistro 7 in Wilton.

My friend Stephanie is not a food blogger, but she sure acts like one. I mean she already takes photos of her food and shares 'em all over Facebook! She was the perfect person to bring to dinner and I even asked her to write about it.

So, without further adieu, here is her first official food blogger recap!
