Just made oven roasted asparagus with oilive oil, lemon, garlic powder, s&p,

and a little parmisan. I never knew you could just bend the asparagus and it will snap off at the exact right place to get rid of the woody parts. I ate the whole thing myself. Yum. Will do it more often.

5. Good for you ! BTW, you can use the woody parts to make a broth and use in, for example,

cream of asparagus soup.
(See how easy it is to cook?!?)

6. It is beginning to make sense. I grew up eating boiled vegetables so

i disliked them and cooking. I loved to bake though.

7. I love the alchemy in cooking -- and that if you know even basic stuff (and there

are zillions of good recipes online! and how-to's on YouTube) you can radically improve the quality of your life (especially your health) by cooking.

11. I'm still learning stuff from cooking demos on YouTube -- and I've been cooking pretty seriously for

almost 50 years! Just learned how to cut matchstick vegetables in a better way than I'd been doing from a very funny Korean woman (Maangchi). There are Italian grandmas making pasta, Turkish women making stews, Instant Pot devotees -- it's a candy shop for cooks! Oh and better-than-takeout-Chinese food.

13. Yum indeed ...

but no garlic CLOVES? I would have roasted some along with the asparagus (and with a little head start). But that's just me.

16. I do chopped garlic sometimes. I've always been afraid of cooking whole cloves because of some

stories i've heard of its smell leaking out of every pore of your body the next day.
