Balsamic Glazed Brussel Sprouts with Pecans

Balsamic Glazed Brussel Sprouts with Pecans

I just love Brussel sprouts. I feel like they get a bad rap. Sure, when you boil them, they are kind of mushy and stinky. But if you pan fry or roast them? Oh man. So. good. The secret is to roast them low and slow until they are nice and browned. Crispy on the …

“Jerusalem” Hummus

“Jerusalem” Hummus

Hummus. I feel like it’s one of those love or hate foods. These days there are so many kinds to choose from, like garlic, or red pepper, or chipotle. But, like most packaged foods in the grocery store, while it can be great in a pinch, it leaves much to be desired when compared to …

I don’t think I have had an opportunity yet to express my love for portobello mushrooms.

It’s also a …
