Posted on by 0 comment aside

Replace the boring flavorless pasta noodles once in a while and invest in a spiralizer!  Yeah maybe it will take up some space with your other kitchen gadgets or you may think you won’t use it like some of the other kitchen contraptions you have tucked away, but this is a kitchen tool that will be used.  You, your husband, your kids, anyone will have oodles of fun using one and eating the noodles, and not to mention they turn meals into healthier options.

Brussels Sprouts, on the Sweeter Side

Brussels Sprouts, loved to hate these things at dinner when I was a kid, how is it that now I am an adult I have no problem eating them.  With the nutritional benefits that Brussels sprouts provide, we should be adding these to our meals more often. When we do have them with a meal, we typically consume these green orbs of awesomeness as a more herby savory dish.  I remember my mom making a salad with brussels sprouts one time and using dried cranberries which made them taste a bit sweet.  I don’t usually have dried cranberries, but I have dates!  Roasted Brussels are my top favorite but these I wanted to cook on the stove. Since these are a bit of a pain in the rear to prep, I would be sure to allow yourself an extra 5-10 minutes to prep the Brussels Sprouts.   It didn’t take long to make this dish as there was not many ingredients.  I took a sampling to a friend and she like them, a tad on the sweeter side (which I agreed) so I will tone it down with the dates next go around. Well, the remaining container was consumed by the hubs so there was nothing left for the kids to taste test, guess I will be making another batch tonight.  I don’t post recipes unless they have been kid approved, but this is a delicious dish as a lunch or a side.  Also, I tested it right when it was off the stove and it was tasty. I also tested a bite after it had chilled in the refrigerator before the hubs devoured the rest and it was just as tasty.
