3 new recipes!

I know recipes are few and far between around here, so for my blogiversary I took to the kitchen and got to work!

Here are last year’s. Note-the double chocolate banana bread is possibly the best recipe I’ve created.

Another note-I’m currently blogging from Starbucks because our Internet has been down since Wednesday, so I apologize for not responding to comments!

Last year’s recipes were all banana/bread based. This year, I made some roasted veggies!

Garlic Roasted Broccoli


3 T olive oil

1 lb broccoli

1/4 c nutritional yeast

1 T garlic paste or 3 cloves of garlic, crushed

salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Toss all ingredients together.

3. Roast until broccoli is tender and starts to brown, about 30 minutes.


Guys. This was good. Like, I wish I had more pictures but we ate it straight from the pan good. The garlic and nutritional yeast makes it almost creamy. The best part? I still have another pound of broccoli I can roast!

Cheesy Roasted Cauliflower


1 head of cauliflower

about 2 T olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup ground parmesan

1/2 cup grated gruyere or cheese of your choice

1. Preheat oven to 425.

2. Toss together olive oil, salt and pepper.

3. Roast for 35-40 minutes, or until almost tender.

4. Remove from oven and toss with cheeses. Return and roast another 5-10 minutes, until the cauliflower is golden and the cheese is melted.


This is super versatile-use any cheese of your choice, but I loved the flavor of the gruyere!

Basic Roasted Asparagus

I feel like I’m almost cheating with this one, but it’s something my family makes on a regular basis so I thought I’d share!


1 bunch of asparagus

2 T olive oil

a few sprinkles garlic powder

salt and pepper to taste

1. On a cookie sheet, toss all ingredients together.

2. Broil in the oven for 7-8 minutes.

    Alright, you had me at roasted broccoli, but when I kept scrolling I literally wish you had invited me over for all of these eats. Seriously, those sweet potatoes look divine. Do I actually see a little pool of butter just sitting in the middle of one?! Gahhhhhhhh, living vicariously through you. That is all.

    I love roasted vegetables! Lately I have been dipping them in hummus or cheese dip and I just can’t get over it! 🙂
