Apple Snow

This is another thing that the rest of America probably realized years ago and I’m just now catching on to, but I thought I’d share the amazingness in case I wasn’t the only one in the dark.

Take applesauce. Put it in a bowl. Put the bowl in the freezer. Stir after about a half hour. Take it out when it has the texture of snow. Eat (one can only have so much ice cream, after all)

A “Doh!” Moment

You can roast broccoli! I can’t believe I had never realized this until my lovely friend, Sara, clued me in. Broccoli is absolutely phenomenal this way, a lovely combination of crispy and mooshy… and best of all, it isn’t really any more involved to prepare than regular old steamed broccoli! Just keep in mind, you’ll need much more broccoli for this that you do steamed broccoli. I’ll often just have two heads of roasted broccoli for my dinner

Broccoli, washed and cut into chunks (as you would for steaming)
a few cloves chopped garlic
a good glug of olive oil

Toss the broccoli, olive, oil and garlic together in your favorite roasting pan, making sure that the broccoli is well-coated with the olive oil (don’t skimp on the olive oil, most of it will stay on the pan, and if you don’t use enough it won’t crisp properly.) You can bake it at any temperature if you have other things in the oven, but I usually put it in at 400F for about 20-25 minutes (and leave it in longer if it isn’t crisped yet). Pull it out of the oven, and fish the broccoli out with a fork, allowing it to drip if necessary. Transfer to a paper towel to remove extra oil, then serve.
Welcome to the New World Order (for broccoli)
