Buffalo-Style Cauliflower

Buffalo-Style Cauliflower with Cashew-Dill Dipping Sauce : Recipes : Cooking Channel

I am totally trying this.  What an awesome idea!

I am probably going to take a shortcut by buying bottled chicken wing sauce, which I find is pretty good.

ETA: It was good, and totally hit that spot on your tongue reserved for wings.  I used bottled bleu cheese dressing too.

Millet is awesome!

Link to article about millet

I have to say, I love this grain.  I imagine some might turn their noses down on it because it is a frequent ingredient in birdseed.  That, and it's just not cool, like quinoa.

Check out the linked article. It's high in protein and fiber.  If you've never had it, you're missing out on a treat.  It fluffs up nicely, like rice, and has a pleasant, buttery flavor.

And saving the best for last--it's really inexpensive!
