“Master Chef”

Yes, that is what my Ex called me the other day. Master Chef! Just two years ago, he said my food tasted bland and would watch over my shoulder as I prepared food. Now, he can’t get enough of my cooking.

Two years ago, I took up cooking. It’s a passion of mine and I absolutely love preparing meals for my family and friends. In those two years, I’ve improved by leaps and bounds; today, I cook at least one meal per day (more if I’m not working) and have expanded my repertoire of recipes significantly. One of my favorites (and Gavin’s, as well) is a very simple dish that turns boring, ordinary broccoli into a special treat. Better yet, it’s super easy to make!

Blasted Broccoli

– Preheat oven to 500 degrees

– Cut 2 heads of broccoli into florets. Dry thoroughly

– Toss florets in olive oil, salt, and pepper

– Arrange florets in single layer on baking sheet and put in oven for 8 – 10 minutes (until florets are slightly browned)

– Remove from oven. Enjoy!

To give you a sense of how good this simple recipe is, you should know that because of it, my two-year old son actually requests broccoli because he thinks it’s a “treat.”

  1. Oh man, if that would get my 5-year old to eat broccoli, I’ll do it every night! He doesn’t sing “drop it like it’s hot” he sings “Drop it like it’s broccoli!”

  2. We love oven roasted veggies, and do a lot of roots during the fall! Nothing better than high quality olive oil, coarse kosher salt and freshly cracker pepper. We like to pair our veggies with lamb shanks or halibut cheeks. Mmmm.
