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,
    You did a great job on Orphan Detail it was so sweet of you to help out. Julie has a great blog and this looks like a delicious dish. Thanks for helping out!

  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!

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found." Read her invitation here. And there won't be a Twitter chat for this event, so you will have to dive into the articles themselves to read about our pairings and findings. Here's the line-up...
