The Brussel Sprout: my best friend.

Roasting veggies in the oven is one of the most easiest ways to add something awesome to your meal and get your veggies in for the day.  I love root veggies such as beets, carrots, etc. More times than not, brussel sprouts and carrots are my two fave veggies to cook.  Toss them with olive oil, sprinkle salt and pepper, and let them roast at 350 in the oven.  I love brussel sprouts!

Now that Spring is here, it’s time to enjoy them in the raw!  Here is a pic of my favorite brussel sprout salad from Merchants in Lawrence, KS! Fresh, light, and delish.

Oh and it’s time for March Madness!  After the first round of games, my bracket is already busted, but it’s been great watching the games!  🙂



Topped Perfectly.


Grilled bratwursts with sour kraut  is delish.  As a side, thick-cut pancetta, potatoes, and brussel sprouts were fried in a pan and finished in the oven.  Wonderful!  We didn’t have any hot dog buns, so we improvised and used hamburger buns, and cut the brat into two.  Sweet deal.  Mini brats!


I’ve always loved sour kraut and it’s one of my favorite toppings when it comes to brats.   It’s sour and salty, and when paired with other toppings such as, sweet relish, onions, bacon, etc., a perfect brat waits for you.

You can never go wrong with Brussel sprouts. Trim, wash, toss them with olive oil, sea salt, and pepper, and bake away until they become delicious pillows of happiness. Such a great side dish and snack.
