Expert Tips

  • Cauliflower florets can be purchased in bags in the produce section for super simple prep.
  • American cheese can be purchased in blocks from the deli and can be shredded before using in your recipe.
  • When blending hot liquids, it is very important that you do not seal the blender, or you could risk it exploding. Remove the center portion of the blender lid, and loosely cover with kitchen towel instead.
