DIRECTIONS: 1. Preheat the oven to 400° Fahrenheit. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 2. In a large bowl, toss the cauliflower florets with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place the florets on the baking sheet in an even layer. Roast for 20 to 23 minutes or until fork tender and slightly golden brown. 3. While the cauliflower is roasting, prepare the meat. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil. Cook the meat and onion until the meat is no longer pink and the onion is translucent, about 5 to 7 minutes. Use a spatula or spoon to break up the meat and drain once cooked. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. 4. Reduce the oven temperature to 350° Fahrenheit. In a bowl, combine the ricotta and eggs. Add the dried parsley and mix until blended together. 5. Slice half the mozzarella log into cubes. Cut the remaining mozzarella into thin slices. 6. In a large stainless steel bowl, combine the roasted cauliflower, cooked ground meat, ricotta-egg mixture, sauce and 2 tablespoons basil. Mix until the ingredients are thoroughly combined. 7. In a large casserole dish, add half the cauliflower mixture. Add the mozzarella cubes in an even layer. Spread the remaining cauliflower mixture on top. Add the mozzarella slices and Parmesan cheese. 8. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown. Garnish with the remaining basil and serve.

HOW TO LET GO OF YOUR OLD STYLE Whether you’re readying your home for sale, or are simply in need of a fresh start, you may be holding onto your past decor style more than you think. While it can feel comforting to keep the furniture and accessories we’ve had for years, being too attached is often what leaves us stuck in a home style rut. If you’re ready to let go of the past and create an interior space that reflects more of who you are right now – read on! First, get inspired. Head online or pick up a current design and decor magazine and study the rooms you find. Instead of writing a space off as not your style, study it and see if any elements jump out at you. Maybe you’re more farmhouse than industrial, but a matte black metal light fixture has caught your eye. Lean more toward traditional than contemporary? Many contemporary spaces incorporate elements of a more traditional decor style. Once you’ve made note of a few items from other styles that you’d like to bring into your space, look at your own home with a more objective eye. Do you own decor items that no longer bring you joy? Or that feel dated? Consider swapping them out for an item with a different vibe. For example, update a heavy, wooden coffee table for one with simple metal legs. Or go the other way and replace a lightweight piece with something that has more presence and detail. Gone are the days homeowners have to stick to one decor style. Today’s trend is blending elements from multiple styles, which helps to create a home that is uniquely you.

Q U O T E “And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald (Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald was an American novelist, essayist, screenwriter and short-story writer. Born in 1896, he is best known for his novels showcasing the Jazz Age – a term he coined. While Fitzgerald enjoyed temporary popularity and success in the 1920s, it wasn’t until after his death in 1940 that he achieved wide critical acclaim.)
