brocolli in oven

This recipe should be illegal! LOL!! Preheat oven to 375° Chop a head of broccoli (do not rinse, immediately prior to preparing!) Mince 2-3 cloves of garlic Put... broccoli, garlic, 2 tbsp. olive oil, and a few shakes of salt and pepper in a ziploc bag. Shake it up!! Spread out on baking sheet, place on top rack, and bake for about 30 minutes. Broccoli will be crunchy and delicious! I make this at least 3 times a week and have to control myself once I take it out of the oven, I could eat this alone for dinner! ‪#‎h

Peter sent this.  Seems high in calories and sugar.

Pizza for dieters

Well, these Flat Out light Italian wraps do work well for pizza like meals. A bit of olive oil on a cookie sheet and bake the wrap until it is crispy. Meanwhile microwave a relatively thick topping sauce. Put the sauce on the wrap, top with a melting cheese and broil until the cheese melts in the oven still hot from the baking. Dribble parmesian to taste.
I used my slow cooker cooked sauce, o...rganic tomato and organic paste with carrots, onion, oregano, basil, garlic, turmeric.
I wished that I had anchovies, but that is just me.
I used serious sharp Vermont cheddar. Not organic but they have pretty good practices.
The trick is to crisp up the thin wrap first. I did it before and it was not crisp and it did not work very well. I also pushed it around a bit on the pan as it crisped and that precluded sticking.
I have missed pizza lately and this does it for me.
Now the Flat Out wraps are not organic.  Ingredients includes calcium peroxide and some preservatives.  I'll keep looking for an organic substitute.  In the meantime, I'll suck it up and have pizza once in a while
