Can I roast the broccoli stalks?

Um. I've never posted here before. I'm hoping I'm doing this right.

Anyway, I've fallen in love with roasting my veggies. I really love broccolini roasted, but I can only actually get broccolini from a supermarket that I can't get to easily on my own. (2 buses and a 1/4 mile walk in snow, plus 1 bus is horribly slow just for 1 veggie? no thank you.)

I was looking up some tips on how to roast broccoli, but I noticed they only use the florets. Is there a reason for that? Are the stalks really bitter or something? I've personally never cooked with fresh broccoli yet.
I greatly prefer the stalks when I roast broccolini.

Feel free to let me know of any other veggies you enjoy roasted. :O I'm trying to expand my veggie taste palette.
