How about a Food Friday?

It's been awhile. I was just thinking about my lack of food pictures lately. My kitchen light is sometimes depressing, especially on winter evenings, but I'm trying to make an effort to take food photos when I get a chance.

Breaking in my new Le Creuset

The other night, I made these yummy roasted vegetables (the photo is pre-oven). Roasting vegetables is so easy, and the flavor you get as they slowly caramelize, well, it's amazing (especially carrots and bell pepper. yum!). I roast them with just olive oil, kosher salt and pepper at a low temperature first (350 degress for about 20 minutes). After stirring (and adding some cremini mushrooms), I turn the heat up to 375 degrees for another twnety-five minutes or so.

I love my new Le Creuset casserole dish. It's so cheery!

Another favorite is chopped broccoli in the toaster oven, sprinkled with lemon juice and parmesan after roasting.

  2. Oh, I've been trying to perfect roasted veggies. Have you tried zucchini?

  3. I highly recommend butternut squash! Oh, and brussels sprouts. After avoiding them for...ever because I thought they'd taste like hot lettuce (yuck!), I decided to give them a try and fell totally in love with them!

    I'll have to try broccoli in the toaster oven, I usually (like tonight) steam it.
