    Preheat the oven to 425 F. Take your cut-up cauliflower and toss it on a baking sheet. Make sure the florets are spread out evenly. Drizzle the cauliflower with a little olive oil, and season it with kosher salt and a little black pepper. Roast this in the oven for 30 min.

    Once your cauliflower is done roasting you want to begin to create your nachos. First, sprinkle your cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses evenly over all of your cauliflower. Then you want to add your tomatoes and red peppers over the cheese. Then you want to garnish with your chopped green onions, cilantro and red onion. If you are adding jalapenos you want to throw them on top of all of the other ingredients.

    Bake the nachos at 400 F for about 10 minutes. Depending on how crispy you want your nachos, you may want to cook them for about 12 minutes if you want the extra crisp.

    You can serve your nachos with salsa, sour cream and guacamole for an awesome dish!

    Spread out the potatoes onto your baking sheet into a single layer. Sprinkle the brown sugar across the layer of potatoes. Then sprinkle your potatoes with as much cinnamon as you wish. I would recommend a generous layer…. It makes them taste absolutely delicious and there is nothing wrong with a little extra cinnamon!

    Bake until tender and the brown sugar and cinnamon are bubbling on top of the potatoes. The cooking time is between 18 - 24 minutes depending on the thickness of your potatoes. Just watch them. Make sure to cool the fries before serving.
