Yeah Broccoli!

Yeah Broccoli... this is what my kids cheer when I bring it home from the grocery store. I never liked broccoli, we did not have it much growing up, I think because my Mom did not like it either. A good friend of ours gave us a broccoli recipe that he said, "every kid loves", so we gave it a try and he was so right, we loved it. Most important it is soooo easy to make!

Cut the tops off and chop into small pieces, coat with EVOO and salt and pepper to taste. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. I do flip them half way through cooking. Serve hot.

Your kids and picky eater husband will gobble it up and beg for more... thanks Dan!

If you have another favorite broccoli recipe please send them me way... thanks.

I think even my boyfriend who HATES broccoli would love that! It stays crisp, right? Nothing is worse than soggy broccoli!

That's my kids favorite too! Have you ever just tried roasting it? evoo, s&p, 375 degrees until it gets a little crown on the edges. We've become Barefoot Contessa fans and roast just about all veggies. You wouldn't believe the taste. Just sayin!
