Roasted Rosemary Turnip Roots

When I was younger, you couldn't get me to eat turnips for nothing!  Nope, nothing!  No way, no how!  Fast forward a gazillion years...I love them!  I cook them with ham seasoning but my very favorite way to eat them is roasted.  Oh. My. These are so good!  I could grab and eat them right out of the oven.  Yes, I love them that much now.   So much so, I cooked them twice, in two days, in my Lodge  15" Seasoned Steel Skillet.  This is perfect to roast vegetables in!  I roasted 1 pound and could easily fit another pound in.  The larger ones were quartered, the smaller halved.  Simply seasoned yet robust in flavor.  Try them...I know you will love them also.  Oh,  just in case you hadn't heard.....I am very honored to be hosting a giveaway sponsored by Lodge Manufacturing.  It's for their amazing 15" Seasoned Steel Skillet.  I have cooked in it every day and l just love the ease of cooking from stove top to oven to grill.  It is large enough to accommodate food for my growing boys and much more.  Perfect!  The giveaway will start sometime in the next two weeks.  Stay connected with me so you won't miss out on this fantastic skillet.


Roasted Rosemary Turnip Roots

1 pound turnip roots peeled, halved or quartered
1 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 Tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced
sea salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Mix oil and minced rosemary.
Place peeled and cut turnip roots in skillet.

Brush with oil and rosemary, saving a little oil to brush once out of the oven.
Sprinkle with sea salt.
Cook 10 minutes, turn skillet around. 
Cook another 10 to 15 minutes until done.  Just until fork tender.
Carefully, take out of oven.  Brush with remaining oil.  

Enjoy!

Roasted Caramelized Bacon Asapargus

This has got to be the best asparagus I have cooked!  It is caramelized, has a background taste of bacon cooked in it, a little peppery, a saltiness that is just right and topped with crumbled bacon.  MMMMM...I could have eaten it all!  Next time I will definitely cook two bundles.  <3 and hugs!


Roasted Bacon Asparagus

1 lb asparagus
3 pieces bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1-2 tablespoon bacon grease
sea salt, to taste
freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400F.  Spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray.  Rinse asparagus and trim the tough ends off by bending at the bottom.  The tough part will break off.  

Place on cookie sheet in a single layer and drizzle with bacon grease.  
Roll asparagus around to coat.
Sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
Cook at 400F for 10 minutes.  Check and turn asparagus over.
Cook another 5-10, maybe 15 minutes depending how thick the stalks are or until crisp tender and they begin to caramelize.  
Put on serving plate and add more sea salt and pepper if desired. 
Sprinkle with crumbled bacon.

Roasted Frozen Broccoli


My oldest told me he loved broccoli.  I was actually being to doubt that this is true.  It seemed every way I made it wasn’t the way he liked it.  I cooked it in soup, casseroles and covered in cheese to no avail.  Last night I decided to roast it in the toaster oven. Jackpot! He loved it!  I put the frozen broccoli florets in the toaster oven with only a spray of olive oil and kosher salt. There is so much that can be done with this.  When it comes out of the oven add a splash of lemon juice and fresh ground pepper. Sprinkle it with grated parmesan and/or cheddar.  Cut it up and add to cooked rice.  The possibilities are endless.  Very easy and great,  just as it is.

Brined Roasted Chicken

I had never brined a chicken before...that is until a few weeks ago and now I am hooked!  I found the brine on the back of my Kosher Salt box.  :D  I adapted this recipe from it.  


I just love the way it makes the chicken taste and it is oh so moist!  Very simple to do.  Add herbs, fruit, garlic...whatever you wish to the brine.  Enjoy!
