  1. Love this! My husband won't eat his broccoli without it! Thx!
  2. I really wanted to like this, since it's both simple and gluten-free (something important due to my food sensitivities). Unfortunately, the taste was somehow off. I didn't like the combination of Worcestershire with the broccoli, and the flavor of the cheese was overwhelmed. I do plan to try it again with a different cheese and hope to come back with a better review.
  3. Love it! I used it for some Broccoflower that I got that needed some umph. I used black pepper, onion salt and skim milk (b/c thats what I had) and it was fab! Oh and I also eyeballed the ingredients ;)
  4. This made a very nice side dish for dinner. My DH and I enjoyed it. Thanks!
  5. On the plus side this sauce has the perfect consistency, is quick and easy to make, and is healthier than the traditional roux based cheese sauce. The problem for us was the worcestershire sauce, which just didn't work with the brocolli for our tastes. I would definitely try this again and just leave that ingredient out. So sorry Nichol!

I have two boys Eddie 18 and Brandon 10. I have been with my hubby for 16 years. I work full time outside the home and my boys keep me busy at home. Eddie is a singer and base guitar player in a band and Brandon races go karts. We also have a Collie/Beagle mix named Sugar. I love to cook and try out new recipes. My family likes it too but at times ask my to make just "normal" food, as I forget sometimes to make my own TNT recipes. I cook a lot with with my crock pot as it makes life a lot easier for me. I am always on the look out for new crock pot recipes. I'm not much of a baker as I don't like to measure things. I collect cookbooks and recipes in general. I usually start with a recipe and tweak to my families liking. My Rating System: 5 Stars = The whole family enjoyed the dish and it will be added to my TNT cookbook. Book #220911. These recipes will be made again and again. 4 Stars = Recipe was good, but needed some modifications or it was good but not something we would want on a regular basis. Also goes into my TNT-4 star recipe cookbook. Book #220912 3 Stars = It was edible, but won't be made again. 2 Stars = Needs some kind of major adjustments. 1 Stars = Inedible, didn't work, waste of ingredients.
