WIAW: Savory Fennel Cauliflower Cookies

Happy New Year’s Eve! Have any fun plans? My night is going to be pretty low key and the biggest plan I have is to try to stay up for the ball drop! ;) It’s time to announce the winners of my two giveaways: the $100 Visa gift card one and the GNC Amino Acid and Energy Powder one! The winner of the $100 gift card is: Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 11.56.42 AM The winner of the GNC PUREDGE products is: Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 12.08.03 PM Congrats ladies!! —- Guys, I have a problem. A good problem, but a problem nonetheless. I have a stockpile of recipes (and POSTS!) burning a hole in my drafts folder. I’ve done so much drafting over the past few months and have had so many ideas for new posts, that I now have over 20 that I still need to publish. I know when the semester starts I’ll be thankful that I have some already prepared, but there’s just so much I want to share with you all right now. My first order of business is to start sharing some of the recipes I’ve been teasing you all with! Starting with these Savory Cauliflower Cookies! I was hesitant to call them cookies as they’re very soft and more like a muffin top in texture, but I’m a fan of alliteration, and Cauliflower Cookies sounded better than Cauliflower Muffin Tops. If you’ve ever made a cauliflower crust, then you know cauliflower has a distinctive taste in baked goods. If you like that taste, then you’ll like these! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA They are great for a snack when you don’t want something sweet and want to fit some extra veggies in without making a smoothie or having something like crudités and dip. You get the chew and texture of a carb-y snack with the nutrition of a veggie filled one! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Now that I am able to do more in the gym (more on that soon when I do an injury update!), I have been having some fun coming up with workouts to share with you all again.
