I’m sitting here with the balcony curtains open watching the Disney fireworks go off and listening to the animals at the Animal Kingdom.  It’s been a long week with many sleepless nights but the days have been with fun with character sightings and lots of rides. I almost forgot to mention that we’ve been hit with three different illnesses causing people to drop like flies and hole up in their rooms.

I just finished the night off with a cheeseburger and grapes from our resort room. After this trip, it will be back to healthy eating and low-carb dishes.

Before I left I made these easy Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Sticks. Years ago I had made some Cauliflower Breadsticks when cauliflower was circulating like crazy on the web. There was cauliflower pizza, cauliflower rice and I even made some bacon cauliflower pancakes. For this recipe, I decided to add my kids favorite vegetable (broccoli) to the mix by making it broccoli cauliflower cheese sticks.

You could even make it a pizza by adding the marinara to the top. These Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Sticks will become a favorite for your family and especially when they want something cheesy.

  1. Oooh I LOVE this idea for a healthier but still fun (and cheesy!) snack. Definitely pinning to make soon!

  2. DANG!! these look so flipping good friend! Also, I loved following along on your Disney trip!

  3. Looks awesome; I can’t wait to try it. What size pan did you use and how many servings does it make?

  4. Didn’t turn out as well as I thought. Maybe a little
    More salt? Also, next time I will not put in a baking sheet because it was soggy on the bottom.
