Vegetable Victory

Vegetable Victory

  Roasted broccoli is my favorite way to eat broccoli…..I love the brown, crispy edges of the broccoli, the slightly sweet flavor, the crunch. Unfortunately, my kids don’t love it. They much prefer steamed broccoli, especially my youngest. But an interesting thing happened tonight.  I […]

Roasted Cabbage

Roasted Cabbage

I promise, this is good.  Like really, really good.  My husband and I can put away a significant amount of roasted cabbage because it really is that good.  Something about it puts it solidly in the comfort food category for me, which is odd since […]

Time for Carrots

Time for Carrots

Serving a vegetable at a meal does not have to require actually cooking a vegetable. There are nights (like tonight!!!) that my main dish takes longer to prepare than I expected, or some unforeseen distraction appears (usually in the form of homework that requires a […]

Roasted Root Vegetables

If you know me well enough to know my kitchen habits, then you know that I never, ever, ever make a recipe exactly as it’s written.  Really, never.  If I share a recipe with you I’ll send the original recipe, along with all the things […]

Kids and Vegetables

So I don’t have a recipe today for my 31 Days of Vegetable Recipes series. Instead, I have some words of encouragement for you, and maybe a little bit of tough love. I hear all the time from other moms that “My kids won’t eat […]
