Enjoy our Top Ten recipes from last year!

2020 is officially past and though it wasn’t the greatest year, This is How I Cook  cooked some pretty good food.

Let’s start at #10 on the top ten list. A perfectly wonderful whole roasted cauliflower with feta cheese that would be awesome for a main course or an awe inspiring side dish! Trying to start out the new year with some healthier dishes? Well, this qualifies!
