Roasted Green Beans

Roasted Green Beans

Green beans are my favorite vegetable forever and ever….always have been, always will be. Canned, boiled, sautéed, with bacon and without (though always better with bacon!), you can’t go wrong with them. But roasting them is by far the best way to serve them….even my…

Roasted Butternut Squash

Roasted Butternut Squash

Roasted Cabbage

Roasted Cabbage

Have you tried roasted cabbage? Think of it as Brussels sprouts’ less-stinky cousin….definitely similar in flavor, but less chance the kiddos will turn up their noses because of the smell. Cabbage is great fresh from the oven, especially the brown and crispy pieces, but the…

Bok Choy with Bacon and Onions

Bok Choy with Bacon and Onions

Raise your hand if you can tell me what those greens are in the picture.  Anyone? If you had asked me that a year ago I would have had absolutely no idea.  I would have said some kind of green, which is painfully obvious, but…

Roasted Cauliflower

Roasted Cauliflower

Roasted cauliflower is one of my favorites….easy, little prep time, and a pretty mild flavor which results in minimal protests from my kids.  Give it a try! Ingredients: 1 or 2 heads of cauliflower (I usually make 2 heads for my family of 6, which…
