Low-Carb Cauliflower Fried “Rice”

Easy Coconut Blueberry Cake

We were originally going to go out for my dad's birthday last night, but he wasn't feeling well so we made it a casual night in instead. We all went over to my parents' house (Hudson, too!), ordered take-out and hung out in the kitchen eating and laughing until well past midnight.

When my mom told me about the change of plans that afternoon, I realized that I at least had the time to bake up a quick cake to bring along. I had to work with what I had, so took a look in the fridge and pantry and pulled together this easy Coconut Blueberry Cake. It's a variation of a cake I've made a lot of times using buttermilk, but with a few easy switches.

It's basically a party feature that doubles as both decoration and dessert. It's super easy to make, and you can get most of the supplies at a hardware store like Home Depot.

Roasted Rainbow Carrot Salad

Eugene and I have been making an effort to try out different restaurants in our uptown neighborhood. In NYC, the downtown places always get all the attention (and many with good reason!), but there are also a lot of incredible places located near us in Washington Heights.
