Amber Bracegirdle is our managing editor, and also blogs at Bluebonnet Baker. She started B&B as a way to connect to her Texas roots and pay homage to her grandmother, Nanny. She's traveled all over with her Brit husband, James, and after 10 years local to NYC, returned to South Texas. They have two adorable boys, and one Maine Coon mix. Tex-Mex is a way of life, as far as she's concerned. Favorite foods include refried beans, breakfast tacos, and migas.
Parboiling broccoli takes it from fresh to perfect for roasting, frying, or even freezing. It cooks up easily after that, making it the perfect weeknight veg for everything from stir fry to sheet pan dinners.
