Mock Mashed Potatoes

As the saying goes..summer bodies are made in the winter.  If you’re like me, I just want to snuggle up and eat hearty meals in the winter.  We all crave comfort food, but there are some great ways to lighten things up and even trick yourself in the process.  A go-to for me is cauliflower mashed potatoes.  I can honestly say, you will not miss those little spuds after you try this delicious alternative.
