Recipe: Cauliflower Gnocchi with Brown Butter and Zucchini Ribbons

Hooray! It’s a blog post! It’s been awhile and if you have been following along with our business transition, then you know why. A friend recently posted something on facebook about how he was searching for a recipe and had to keep reading people’s enitre life stories on their blog posts in order to get to the actual recipe.
