Cauliflower cheese is the name for an English dish. No, it's not cheese made from cauliflower. It's cauliflower smothered in a sauce loaded with real cheddar cheese, and then baked. Along with the cheese, it's flavored with mustard powder and ground cayenne.

These Espresso Meringue Cookies were a big hit with my grandsons, who had never tried anything with coffee flavoring. Everyone else in the family loved them too. In fact, these cookies didn't last very long in our house, and, unlike most sweets I make, never made it to work.
