For most of my life, others called me a perfectionist, but I didn't see myself that way. I would tell them, "I'm not a perfectionist; I'm the least perfectionistic person I know!" And it was true.

Now, in my moment of need, I turn to my many, many recipe bookmarks to see what clever cauliflower creations can capture my curiosity this time.
