Why should writing about food be harder than eating it (plus a bonus of oven roasted broccoli)

I am expecting myself to change that, at least for my own sake, in short order. Meanwhile, try this treatment for Broccoli which is so much better than steaming that crap - if you eat as much broccoli as I do, you'll love this:

1) Take 2 broccoli crowns - cut them into even mini-spears with florets
2) Preheat an oven to 400 Degrees F
3) Place broccoli in 9X11 baking pan - drizzle with extra-vigin olive oil
4) Sprinkle with coarse kosher salt, a dash of crushed red pepper and 2 crushed cloves of garlic - toss with a set of tongs to coat
5) Bake for 20 - 25 minutes until slightly tender, tossing occasionally

Voila! Never eat mushy boring broccoli again!
