About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon, Onion, and Garlic

I never liked Brussel Sprouts...until now.  I actually never tasted one until yesterday so I'm not sure how I came to the conclusion that I didn't like Brussel Sprouts.  But I'm trying to be braver with trying new vegetables this year and I surprised myself with how much I actually love these little guys.  Mike has always loved Brussel Sprouts and he said the ones I made last night were the best he's ever eaten.  They were like candy if vegetables could taste like candy.  These are so simple to make and I'm confident I will be eating a lot more of these.  

One pound fresh Brussel Sprouts
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 small onion, diced 
1 Tablespoon fresh minced garlic
4 pieces of crispy bacon, broken into pieces
Salt & pepper

Cut the brown ends off each brussel sprout and remove any yellowing leaf.  Place them on cookie sheet and toss with olive oil and salt and pepper.  Add diced onion, garlic, and bacon pieces and mix together.  Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
