There are many things which can always be found in cyberspace, that you’d never be able to find on your own. The movie with a penguin searching for a pebble? Check IMDB. That NPR testosterone story you can never forget? Thank you, This American Life archives. But then there are other things that just can’t be found so easily. That’s when search terms rule the day.
One of the most popular search terms in my browser history – for my archived emails – is “Ellen recipe.”
Ellen has provided me with an plethera of excellent recipes over the years. This is my favorite:
8 ounces cauliflower [I used a head, chopped into small pieces]
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp turmeric
spray oil; cover pan before and after throwing on the cut cauliflower
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Toss cauliflower with oil and spice mixture.
Bake 30-35 minutes uncovered.
Though Ellen insists that this recipe is everywhere and always the same, I beg to differ. To me, she is the first and last word in the field.
Happy Half-Birthday Special Correspondent Ellen!
