SRC Reveal: Little Bit of Everything {Orphan Rescue}

I'm on Orphan-detail again today for the Secret Recipe Club and I am so excited about having been introduced to Julie at Little Bit of Everything. She writes that her blog is a creative journey through her cookbook collection which is over one hundred strong! I need to be more diligent about using my cookbooks, too. Right now, they are just expensive, albeit gorgeous, dust-collectors. Yikes.

Looking through Julies's blog - and what goodies were showing up in my CSA box this evening - I settled on her oven-roasted broccoli. The other two recipes that I considered were her savory caramelized onion-sage-cheddar muffins and her penne with sage-brown butter. Soon!

Oven-Roasted Broccoli

1 bunch broccoli, cleaned and trimmed
2 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
freshly ground sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
1/3 C panko bread crumbs
1/2 C shredded Parmesan

Preheat oven to 375F. Cut the broccoli into bite size pieces. Trim the dark green from the stalk and cut into thick, round slices. Place the broccoli into a large bowl and toss with the olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Spread the panko into a 13 by 9-inch metal sheet pan and place into the oven for 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove the panko from the oven and add to the bowl with the broccoli mixture. Toss to combine. Return the mixture to the cake pan, place in the oven and roast just until the broccoli is tender, 15-20 more minutes. Remove from the oven, toss in the cheese and serve immediately.


  1. Thanks so much for rescuing me! Great to meet you!!
    This is my favorite way to prepare broccoli, roasting makes everything so sweet. Thanks again!

  2. Hi Camilla,

  3. This is a 5-star broccoli dish - even better than broccoli under a blanket of hollandaise, and that's going some. This recipe could even convert the broccoli-reluctant eaters. Delicious choice.

  4. You are always so good and generous about rescuing orphans - so nice! And I LOVE roasted broccoli - and yours looks delicious!!

  5. mmmm...roasted broccoli!!! This looks great :-)

  6. So great of you to rescue an orphan-fab choice!

  7. I never think to roast broccoli - but that looks so good! I'll have to surprise my family with a different broccoli dish. Thanks for the rescue!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
