Ingredients: 1 egg 2 teaspoons water 1 sheet puff pastry dough from a 17.3-oz. package, thawed 1 teaspoon seasoned black pepper, to taste (or seasoning of your choice) sprigs of rosemary and parsley (or any fresh or dried herbs that you like) about 4 varied types of cheese, presented in an interesting configuration (I used packaged pimiento cheese, muenster cheese, mozzarella medallions, and Dutch cheese with cumin seed.) In a small bowl, place 1 egg and 2 teaspoons water and beat well. Set aside. Unfold the thawed sheet of puff pastry and place it in an ungreased shallow baking pan. Brush the top side with egg mixture. Cut 4 (1/2-inch-wide) strips from the pastry, cutting parallel to the seam of the pastry. (I cut 2 from each side for symmetry.) Remove the 4 strips and place them along the edge of the puff pastry, trimming ends. With a fork, prick the bottom of the pastry, allowing steam to escape as the pastry cooks. Sprinkle the bottom of the pastry with 1 teaspoon seasoned black pepper or other seasoning of your choice. Gently press fresh rosemary and parsley sprigs into the bottom to make an artistic design. Bake for 6 minutes at 400 degrees F. Prick bottom of pastry again, to let any air escape from underneath the pastry while baking …

Ingredients: 12-oz. package frozen broccoli cuts (For the amount of cheese sauce I made, you can make (2) 12-oz. packages of frozen broccoli cuts. You may substitute broccoli spears or chopped broccoli, if desired.) 2 cups white sauce (You will find a recipe for white sauce in the video, Quick Tip 93—How to Make White Sauce.) 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese Place frozen broccoli cuts in a pot containing ½-inch of boiling water. Return to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and cook broccoli until crisp-tender, about 8 minutes. Meanwhile, heat 2 cups white sauce until warm. Add 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese to the heated white sauce. Stir, and continue to heat and stir, just until cheese is melted. By this time the broccoli should be done. Drain broccoli through a colander, and place it in a nice serving bowl. Pour the cheese sauce into a pitcher to accompany the broccoli. Alternatively, you may mix the broccoli and cheese sauce together. This makes a bright-colored and healthy food for your table! Enjoy!!! –Betty ?
