  • Roasted Broccoli with Bacon

    Fall and winter are the perfect seasons for roasted vegetables. I love to add some olive oil and spices to the vegetables, and they become a deliciously easy side dish to any meal.

    I love fresh raw broccoli and I must admit that this recipe is great even without roasting the broccoli. While I was tossing the broccoli with the olive oil mixture, the aroma of the olive oil and raw garlic was so tempting that I had to try some. I couldn’t stop eating them. I may or may not have gobbled up a good portion of the broccoli. Yum! I can eat this every day.

    This was so easy and delicious! I love to find new ideas to feed my picky eater that also has food allergies. This was honestly a no brainier. Not sure how it hadn’t crossed my mind before, but I’m thankful to have found it and it will be a regular go to for me!
