Asian Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Crispy Fried Shiitake Mushrooms #vegetarian

We did it! Today marks the official last day of #BrusselsSproutsWeek. I’m kind of sad actually, even though I have decided to announce a formal separation from sprouts for at least a month (next Thursday excluded). Hopefully I’ve convinced some haters out there to give them a second chance though!...

Strozzapreti with Pork Sausage, Shaved Brussels Sprouts, and Sage

It wouldn’t be #BrusselsSproutWeek without pasta! Ok, well, it wouldn’t be any week without a good heaping bowl of pasta, but that is an entirely different matter. You know that famous Sophia Loren quote, “Everything you see I owe to spaghetti.” That basically defines my life. In a nutshell. It...

Brussels Sprouts Salad with Apple, Walnuts, and Parmesan-Pecorino Crisps

Ok, so today I’m challenging your love of Brussels sprouts. Just a teensy bit, because it wouldn’t be #BrusselsSproutsWeek if I didn’t do that, right? As much as I would love to sit here and promise you that everyone under the sun would love this salad, it wouldn’t be the truth. I’m...

Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Squash with Dried Cranberries and Dijon Vinaigrette -- the perfect side dish for #Thanksgiving!

I’m back, I’m back! Today’s recipe might be my absolute favorite #BrusselsSproutsWeek recipe. It is only Tuesday (and I shared these delicious fried Brussels sprout leaves yesterday) so trust me, that is saying quite a bit. As you can imagine, we ate a ridiculous quantity of Brussels sprouts leading up to this...

Fried Brussels Sprout Leaves with Lemon & Chili Flakes. The perfect crispy snack!

Get ready! #Brusselssproutsweek has arrived in full force! This entire week I’ll be showcasing Brussels sprouts in a ton of different ways. Words cannot contain my excitement right now. I’ve fried ‘em, roasted ‘em, shredded ‘em, prepared ‘em raw. You name it, and I’ve probably tried it. In other words, I tried...

#Brusselssproutsweek is coming to the blog this week! Starting tomorrow! Get excited. I have a huge thing for English McVite’s digestive cookies. This recipe makes me so happy. Spiced pork shoulder with roast crab apples. Seriously, how good does this look? Breakfast Hasselback sweet potatoes. Oh yes. Lindsay shared an entire weeks’...

Oak Park Chicago

The Windy City (Part II)

Catch up on Part 1 here… Our second full-day in Chicago was just as exciting as our first one! But before I tell you about that, I must recap our dinner the previous night at Stephanie Izard’s Girl & The Goat. We were somehow lucky enough to get reservation a...
