- Has anyone tried the homemade microwave popcorn trick I mentioned a couple months back? We have been doing it regularly and each time I am amazed at how good it tastes.
So easy, so healthy.
- Recently a friend shared with me the website for "The Art of Real Life," which is the site for Sally Brewer Photography. I do not know Sally, but I just had to share her site, since she has a true gift. If we still lived in DC, I would be giving her a call to set up a session!
I love asparagus, and since this is the height of asparagus season near our home, I am always looking for new ways to cook it. This is a recipe that Steel Magnolia once made for a dinner when we all lived in DC. My boys are not that keen on asparagus, but with this recipe, I can get a couple "no-thank-you" tastes.
Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Brown Butter Sauce (from Cooking Light)
Arrange asparagus in a single layer on baking sheet; coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until tender.
Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat; cook for 3 minutes or until lightly browned, shaking pan occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in soy sauce and vinegar. Drizzle over the asparagus, tossing well to coat. Serve immediately.
