Our mothers and grandmothers loved their Pyrex, and it is still beloved today by cooks and collectors alike.

      This Broccoli-celery salad really sounds good. Thanks for sharing your Aunt Suzy's recipe. We make a Broccoli Sausage Rice Casserole that is very popular with our family.

      My favorite Broccoli is in the St. Louis Chopped Salad. It's sold at the local super-market. A mid-west chain of markets. These look great too. Thanks for the great broccoli ideas!

      I like fresh, steamed broccoli the best, just plain on my plate as my veggie (no butter, no salt, no cheese sauce). Oh, it's great in soups and stirfries, of course, but properly (ie. not overcooked) broccoli is a delicacy on its own. Yum!

      I prefer the B&C as a creamed soup.

      Please add an option for...I like broccoli any way it's fixed...because that would be just right for me. I love the stuff, and this recipe sounds like another way for me to fix a favorite vegetable. Thanks for sharing.

      I need to learn to eat my broccoli just steamed, but can eat it now if it has something like this or lots of cheese to disguise it.

      I prefer to use broccoli as a complementary ingredient instead of a main ingredient. I chop it up fine and toss it in vegetable fried rice, spaghetti, and pasta salads.
