Roasting the broccoli with garlic and Parmesan gives this dish great flavor. You may cut all the stem off the broccoli but I like to leave a little on. You may also peel the stems, cut them in julienne strips and use them too, if you wish. Adapted from the ABC news program. From Ina Gartens new book Back to Basics(Barefoot Contessa).
A delicious recipe from Ina Garten's cookbook, Barefoot Contessa at Home. If you don't have a panini press, that's okay, just place in a skillet with a heavy weight on top(foil covered brick, or heavy cast iron skillet, etc.) Enjoy!
Green goddess dressing was invented in the 1920's at San Francisco's Palace Hotel as a tribute to William Archer's hit play, The Green Goddess. It gets it's bright green color from lots of fresh green herbs. This dressing was originally made with tarragon, but has been updated with basil, which actually has more flavor! Delicious on green salad, but also great served with vegetables like asparagus and broccoli. Adapted from the Barefoot Contessa at Home cookbook.
This is an extremely good and rich bread, absoutely yummy fresh from the oven but it is great chilled from the refrigerator or heated with melted butter. It can be frozen too. I make mini loaves to give as great gifts! Adapted from Mike Dolan who posted it on recipelinks and I changed it to make it my own. It would even be good with chocolate chips added! :) Makes 2 regular loaves or 4 mini loaves. Enjoy! To make the bread even healthier, try substituting 1/2 of the oil with applesauce.
Cat Cora says she loves the challenge of making Brussels sprouts irresistible. Her secret is to really let them caramelize in the brown butter. Keep them in the pan until the insides are tender and delicious! From Cat Cora's Kitchen cookbook.

This is made at the White House by Chef Cristeta Comerford. I haven't made this yet, but have been looking for a broccoli soup that's yummy but healthy too. I have added the option of adding just a little cream if you like. Enjoy! The soup is a little thin, so I removed one of the cups of stock. Add it if you like it on the thin side.
