HOW TO COOK ASPARAGUS (OVEN-ROASTED ASPARAGUS RECIPE)
1 large bunch of fresh asparagus, about 1 pound
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Snap off (or cut off) and discard the woody ends of the asparagus.
On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the asparagus spears with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Next arrange them in a flat, even layer.
Bake for 7 to 15 minutes (depending on the size of your asparagus – less time for thinner spears, more time for thicker spears), until the spears are tender.
Transfer the roasted asparagus to a serving platter and top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes. Serve with fresh lemon!

Want To Make Yourself More Beautiful? Keep Reading
The art of beauty is so much more than just simply “putting your face on.” It takes a great deal of skill, attention to detail, and accuracy to really make those products work for your body the way they should. The tips below can help you improve your beauty skills.
Be sure to exfoliate your face on a regular basis. Even if you have very sensitive or dry skin, you can use gentle exfoliation up to three times weekly — any less will not reveal the true benefits of the plump, healthy skin cells that lie underneath your top layer of skin cells. Doing this can give your face a more glowing appearance and will also reduce oil and dirt in your pores.
You can easily exfoliate your face lightly during your daily bath or shower by using a soft, nubby terrycloth or wash rag. This is especially effective if the water is warm, not hot, and only if you are using the cloth for the first time. Never use the same cloth two days in a row as bacteria may build up overnight.
To keep feet looking beautiful, especially during the warmer, dryer summer months, try applying Vaseline to them every day. It will keep them smooth and soft. Then go get yourself a pedicure and a pair of brand new sassy sandals, and you’ll have the best looking feet of the season.
Use cocoa butter on stretchmarks and scars. Cocoa butter is a beauty treatment with roots in ancient times. It has long been known to normalize skin-tone, and to make your skin more resilient. Cocoa butter has a small price-tag, and is available almost anywhere you can buy lotions or creams.
Do not forget your hands need to be pampered too. Hands are often overlooked in beauty treatments. That is why it is said, if you want to know someones age, check their hands. In addition to daily treatment with lotion or cream, you should exfoliate your hands once a week.
Drinking fruit juice can help your skin be more beautiful. Eating fruits and vegetables is highly beneficial to healthy skin and body. Including the juice of these foods in your diet is a tasty way to make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need! Have juice in lieu of sugary drinks, and you’ll notice a positive change in your appearance.
Here is a number-one, tip-top beauty tip! Give your lashes plump volume with a lengthening mascara. Many brands of mascara have a formula specifically devoted to boosting length and curl. These kinds of mascaras can really weigh your lashes down. They will weigh down your lashes. Try a formula that will lengthen your lashes and that is waterproof. These types of mascara offer greater volume, and an upward curl to lashes.
Using a facial moisturizer is one of the best things you can do to enhance your beauty. Even if you have oily skin, it is still a good idea. Apply it every single night before going to sleep. If you have extra dry skin, it is a good idea to also use moisturizer in the morning as well.
When applying makeup before a photo shoot, school pictures or any other photography session, favor matte finishes over shimmery ones and make sure that you apply your makeup under natural light. Shimmery shadows, blushes, lipsticks and powders will look too shiny in a camera flash. Applying your makeup under natural light gives you the best idea of how your makeup will actually look in the photos.
If your skin looks like it could use a wake-up, try this idea. Use a hot, damp washcloth (with a few drops of your favorite essential oil on it, or plain is fine too) and press it gently against your face for a minute. Finish with a splash of very cold water. The heat will improve your facial circulation and open your pores, while the cold water will tighten your skin and wake you up generally.
If you are like many who have a problem keeping your eyeliner where it is supposed to be, try applying your eye shadow on top of the eyeliner with a damp cotton ball. It will help to set the liner and keep it in its place longer than it would otherwise.
Always have lotion on hand for beauty emergencies. Beauty emergencies can happen at any time without notice. In addition to helping dry skin, lotion can also reduce the frizz in hair. Smooth your hair down after rubbing a tiny bit (a dab the size of pea) into your palm.
Keep some fabric softener sheets on hand for beauty emergencies. Fabric sheets can be used to tame a static skirt that wants to stick you your hose. It can do the same for wild hair. Another thing it is good for is running through your hair to quell obnoxious odors like smoke.
Are you looking for a simple soft look? First apply a light liquid foundation. This will give you a natural feel. If you need to even out your skin you can also apply concealer. Next, apply a soft creamy brown eyeshadow and a coat of light mascara. Last, add peach tinted lip gloss. This will give you the simple fresh look you are looking for.
If you have ever gotten that perfect hairstyle, and decided to use hairspray to keep it that way, you have undoubtedly gotten that helmet look. A way to combat this is to spray the hairspray onto the brush, and run it through the hair from the roots to the tips. This will result in a hold with volume and shine, and without the plastered look.
If you want that shiny look on your legs, but don’t want a greasy feel to them, just use your regular lotion, and gloss it up a little by adding a small drop of baby oil. This will give you luster and softness, without the resulting greasiness of the baby oil alone.
The art of beauty is one that can be enjoyed by everyone, but only those very serious into it will try to perfect their perfect beauty techniques every chance that they get. Now with more beauty knowledge to add to your “bag of tricks,” you can easily become great at it too.
