Cauliflower Buffalo Wings Recipe

1 head of cauliflower
1/2 cup non-dairy milk
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup all-purpose flour (can substitute for gluten-free rice flour)
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
1 Tbsp of paprika
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 Tbsp butter
1 cup red hot sauce

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 450°F. Wash and cut cauliflower head into small bite-sized pieces.

2. Mix all the ingredients (minus the butter and hot sauce) into a mixing bowl.

3. The batter will be thin enough that it runs off your fork and the cauliflower florets. Dip each floret into the mixture and coat evenly. You can shake or tap off the excess on the side of the bowl.

4. Lay florets in an even layer on the parchment lined baking sheet.

5. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

6. While the cauliflower is baking get your ranch dip and wing sauce ready. In a small saucepan on low heat melt butter and mix in hot sauce, bringing to a low simmer before removing from the heat.

7. Remove the cauliflower from the oven and put all the baked florets into a mixing bowl with the wing sauce and toss to coat evenly. Then spread all the florets in wing sauce out onto the same baking sheet. Bake in the oven for another 25 minutes.

This is what I thought of for Vivien's "Boiled Dinner" - it's the only one I've ever heard of, so I hope it will help in her quest.

New England Boiled Dinner Recipe·

Corned beef can be pretty salty, so if you are making boiled dinner with corned beef you may want to put it in a pot, cover with cold water, bring to a boil, and then discard the water before starting the recipe. If the broth ends up being too salty, you can serve just the meat and vegetables, without the broth, or add water to the broth to dilute it.

3 1/2 pounds corned beef brisket or plain beef brisket
15 peppercorns
8 whole cloves
1 bay leaf
Salt, if using plain brisket
2 medium sized turnips, peeled and quartered
4 red new potatoes, peeled and quartered
3 large carrots, cut into thirds and the thickest pieces quartered lengthwise
1 small head cabbage, cut into fourths

Put corned beef in a pot, cover with water, add seasonings, simmer: Put the brisket in a 5 or 6 quart Dutch oven and cover with an inch of water.

If you are using corned beef brisket and it does not come already packed in seasoning, add peppercorns, cloves, and a bay leaf to the pot.

If using plain brisket, add a teaspoon of salt for every quart of water.

Bring to a simmer and then cover, lower the heat until it is barely simmering. Keep at a low simmer for four hours or until the meat is tender (a fork goes through easily).

Remove meat, add vegetables, simmer: Remove the meat and set aside, keeping the meat warm. Add the vegetables to the pot. Check the broth for taste. If it is too salty, add a little more water to taste.

Raise the temperature and bring the soup to a high simmer. Cook at a high simmer until done, about 15-30 minutes longer, depending on the size of the cut of your vegetables.

Slice meat across the grain: Slice the meat in thin slices across the grain. You may find it easier to slice if you first cut the roast in half along the same direction as the grain of the meat. Then slice smaller lengths across the grain.

Serve in bowls, a few pieces of meat in each, add some of the vegetables and some broth. Serve with horseradish or mustard or both.
Serves 6 to 8

Green Tomato Pie Recipe
Makes: 1 - 9 inch Pie

8 Medium Green Tomatoes, Sliced
1 Apple, thinly sliced
1 Cup Sugar
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
1 Tbsp Butter
1 tsp Minute Tapioca
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
Pastry for a 2-crust 9 inch pie

Preheat oven to 400 ° F. In a bowl, make a mixture of sugar, tapioca and spices. Arrange 1/2 of the Tomato and apple slices in the bottom of the unbaked crust. Sprinkle half of the mixture over the layer. Arrange the remaining tomato and apple slices as a top layer. Sprinkle the remaining mixture over this layer. Dot with butter and sprinkle with lemon juice. Place top crust on pie, seal and flute the edges. Dock the top for steam. Bake for 35 minutes or until crust is golden and juices bubble through. (Fruit has finished cooking when juices flow out docking holes. Rack cool for 90 minutes. Serve with ice cream or cheese.

Notes: In this quick recipe, Tomatoes are only washed, and sliced: not peeled. For firmer consistency, increase Tapioca to 1 Tbsp. Covering the crust with foil for the first 30 minutes of baking can improve the crust color. Increase baking time by 15 minutes. Egg wash on top crust will create a glossy golden appearance.
