Roasted Broccoli & Tomatoes

Munch-munch-munch…The contrasting taste and texture of the crispy charred broccoli and sweet tomato nectar created from the oven roasting has me making this a weekly side-dish staple.

Happy Saturday vibes

And I’m not talking about that hot cocoa pre-packaged stuff; they just taste too watered… Continue reading Cuddle up to this cozy winter drink
