Since I started this blog, I’ve had some great feedback from everyone. Thank you all for your input, support, ideas and criticisms. Everyone is really helping me define what and how I want post. With that said, I’ve had a lot of questions about what kind of sides can be made to accompany my meat recipes. So look forward to not only how I rub it on my meat, but how I rub my veggies, snacks and, if I feel bold, some desserts.
One of my favorite sides of all time is asparagus and I find it to be the perfect accompaniment to any meal. Sometimes I’ll snack on it raw when I’m cooking, I like it that much. Normally I’ll steam my asparagus but, for the blog, I thought I would spice it up a notch. So, I went out researching and found some really great recipes.
After a week I found a recipe for Roasted Asparagus by the very talented Elise Bauer which I thought was great and modified it just a bit. I stuck to the basic method but changed out the seasonings for my go to spice. So, if you get a chance, go check out Elise’s website, she really is an inspiration to my cooking and a great chef.
