The Best Roasted Broccoli | chezcateylou.com

Ok I know what you’re thinking right now – Broccoli? But what about the donuts and cookies and chocolate peanut butter anything? Don’t worry, they are coming soon (I may or may not have made these last night…). But I just HAD to tell you about this broccoli. Why?

Because it is the absolute best broccoli I have ever had. In fact, it is the best veggie I have ever had – at a restaurant or in my own kitchen. I’m not exaggerating. This stuff is amazing. It even converted TheBetterHalf into a broccoli lover, and he had previously not been a fan of the healthy green vegetable. Plus it is so simple to make – there are only 5 ingredients, and that is counting salt and pepper!…

Good morning! Apparently it is National Pancake Day. I’m not sure how I missed that one – TheBetterHalf just emailed me to let me know! As the pancake queen, I’m kind of upset with myself for not knowing about this awesome holiday. I might have to eat a plate of these for dinner to make myself feel better. Or these. Or these.

So I don’t have pancakes to share with you today, but at least I have the next best thing – cookies! I am on a roll with the St. Patrick’s Day recipes. I just can’t help myself – I will take any excuse I can to make fun and festive treats. I posted these Irish Cream Cheesecake Brownies the other day, and today I have St. Patrick’s Day funfetti chocolate chip cookies for you!

These Sherry Charred Brussels Sprouts are my new favorite way to cook this veggie! The brussels sprouts are so easy to make, and are so flavorful!

It is Thanksgiving Week day 3!  So far we’ve had Haricots Verts and Stuffing (TheBetterHalf’s favorite) and now it is time for my favorite – Brussels Sprouts! I know, it is hard to believe that I choose brussels over pie, but it is true.  I just love brussels sprouts!  There is something about their flavor -when they get all browned and crispy that I just can’t resist.

We eat brussels sprouts all the time, especially in the winter.  I have no self control around them – I actually have to make only two (large) servings or else I just won’t stop eating them.  I usually roast them in a 400 degree oven tossed in some olive oil, salt, and pepper. But for our Thanksgiving Week, I decided to try a new recipe, one for the best brussels sprouts that I have ever eaten.
