Cauliflower Pizza Happenings

Happy Wednesday W+A readers! Its been a bit since we have posted, but we've been busy cooking and loving our new Instagram account! Be sure to follow us @whiskeyandaprons to see all of our delicious eats and cocktails we got going in ;)  This past weekend was Valentine's Day, so we decided to head out Saturday night when it would be less busy. John made reservations at one of our favorite restaurants on the water, Louie's Oyster Bar & Grille. We had a delicious meal followed by some sweet desserts. It was the perfect evening out!


Sunday night I decided to cook John and I dinner. Everyone has been crazing over the cauliflower rice from Trader Joe's but it is impossible to score some. I've also heard they limit each customer to two bags at a time. So after striking out twice, I decided to rice my own cauliflower and make some yummy cauliflower crust. I will admit, it was a bit time consuming but so worth it. Here's what you will need to make your own.

Ingredients:

-1 whole head of cauliflower
- 1 container of non-fat plain Greek yogurt
-1 egg
-salt
-pepper
-garlic powder
-Italian seasoning
-part skim mozzarella cheese
-pizza sauce and toppings of your choice

Directions:

Cut your florets into small pieces and use your food processor to chop all of your cauliflower. Once all riced, boil a sauce pot with about 1 inch of water. Once water comes to a boil, throw in your rice for 5 minutes. Strain your rice but make sure not to shake your strainer too hard or you may lose some! Once all of the water is drained, take a thin dish cloth and pour your rice onto the cloth and wrap up into a ball. (This is when John's strength came in handy!) Ring out all of the water from the rice. You will be shocked how much empties out! Once you have rung out most of the water, place your rice into a bowl and add 1/2 cup of your non-fat yogurt, 1 egg, 2 tbsp salt, 2 tbsp pepper and add garlic powder and Italian seasoning to taste. Mix all together very well. In the meantime, pre-heat your oven on 400 degrees. Make sure to line your cookie sheet with parchment paper or your crust may stick. Roll out our crust with your hands and start to form in whatever shape you like. I did mine in a square and rolled up the edges to form a crust. Once done, bake for about 35-40 minutes. You will then take out your crust and top with sauce, mozzarella or whatever you'd like!


I added ground hot Italian sausage and fresh mozzarella cheese to mine and it came out so tasty! Friend's like to top theirs' with veggies, goat cheese and even drizzle with honey and figs for a delicious flatbread. This weekend we are visiting some friends, but it will be back to cooking next week. We'll have to do a big grocery haul since we have really used up everything in the fridge this week. Will be back soon with some new recipes. Have a great rest of the week! xo

Air Fryer Wings + Bacon Brussel Sprouts

We love using the air fryer for "frying" up some of our favorite dishes. From chicken parmesan to veggie fries and most recently bagels and empanadas, the options are endless. So we decided to try out wings this time around. It was the perfect meal for some Sunday football enjoyment. We also roasted up some crispy brussel sprouts with bacon and a cranberry balsamic drizzle for a complete meal. Here's everything you'll need for this dish: 


Ingredients (for wings) 1 lb of chicken wings or drumsticks  1 c of nonfat greek yogurt  3 tbsp of paprika  1 tbsp of oregano  1 tsp salt  1 tsp pepper  Juice of 1/2 a lemon  1 c of Kentucky Kernel seasoned flour  1 c of hot wing sauce (Frank's or your favorite hot sauce)
Directions Mix together yogurt and lemon juice with all seasonings and spoon into a ziplock bag. Add chicken and let marinate for at least 4 hours. In a flat plate evenly spread out your seasoned flour and dredge your wings in both sides. Make sure to preheat your air frye…

Almond Poppy Seed + Lemon Loaf

Happy Spring? Yes,  the question mark is needed since we had snow on Long Island today and its April second! I'd say about six inches total, but we were happy to see the sun appear and melt some of it away. We started on some yard work this week and were getting the itch to start doing some planting, but luckily we held out for now. Snow days are always the best days to test out a new recipe and typically we like to try our hands at baking on these chilly days. We just received some of Kodiak Cake's new Almond Poppy Seed Power Cakes Flapjack + Waffle mix. We decided to use this delicious mix for some baking and the results turned out absolutely delicious. Here's everything you will need: 


Ingredients 3 cups of Kodiak Mix  1/2 cup of nonfat Greek yogurt 1 tsp vanilla extract  1 tsp of baking powder  3 eggs, beaten  4 tbsp of unsalted butter, softened  1/3 cup of brown sugar  3/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk  3 tbsp of lemon zest  1/8 cup of lemon juice 
Ingredients (glaze) 1/2…

Slow Cooker Honey Parmesan Pork Roast

We made it to hump day! As I currently sip my coffee this morning, I have a batch of banana coconut chocolate chip energy bites (recipe to come) for a little after dinner or post gym snack baking in the oven. We had a pork loin in the fridge big enough to feed a small country so we decided to cut it and make three separate meals for the week. I typically roast my pork in the oven Cuban style and add some roasted potatoes, but I figured I could set it and forget it with this easy and DELICIOUS recipe below. I'm not embarrassed to admit that John and I pretty much polished off almost the entire pork loin. Here is everything you'll need to make slow cooker honey Parmesan pork roast: 


Ingredients 3 to 4 lbs of pork loin roast 2 tbsp dried oregano 2 tbsp dried basil 1/2 tsp black pepper 3/4 tsp salt 2 tbsp garlic, minced 1/2 c honey 2 tbsp olive oil 1/4 c soy sauce 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions Place pork loin in slow cooker. In a medium bowl, combine the dried oregano, dried basil…
