Catherine's Note: Michelle and I discovered this recipe last year. I have to admit that I am not a cauliflower fan, but I could eat an entire head of cauliflower with this recipe. Once you've tried it, you will never put cheese on your cauliflower again. It's always better with butter.
Michelle"s Note: The first time I made this (actually Catherine made it) I didn't have a lemon so we used orange peel and orange juice and it was great. It was quick and easy and we enjoyed it at our "Sunday after Thanksgiving" Thanksgiving dinner.
