Oven Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Some nights are just roasted brussels sprouts kind of nights.  Last night was one of them.  I know there are all kinds of fancy bacon, cheese, lemon juice add-ons, and goodness knows I love all of them.  But when you’ve got a Costco sized bag you need to quickly roast (read: expiration date quickly approaching) and […]

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Shallots

Oh me, oh my.  Yes, roasted Brussels Sprouts alone are delicious.  Add sliced shallots and shaved goat cheese to them and they will sing in your mouth.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe

We do eat vegetables in this family, really, we do!  And lately, I’ve been craving a particularly super cute, super little green veg that packs a combo punch of vitamins C & K AND is loaded with fiber…can you name it? Oh!  You’ll never guess.  It’s not your common table green and it has gotten […]
