Simple Brussels Sprouts.

I finally learned to eat Brussels sprouts using the recipe at this link (duh, it has maple syrup in it :)).  However, I wanted to see if I could be enough of a grown-up to eat them in a slightly less “doctored up” fashion.  I was surprised to learn that I could!  I sort of just […]

Brussels Sprouts with Maple Syrup and Walnuts.

I’ve avoided Brussels sprouts like the plague my entire life….everyone always says they’re like little cabbages and I am not thrilled with cabbage.  But, Bob and I found some fresh at the market, and decided to give them a try.  I found this recipe on and it is delicious.

Oven-Steamed Green Beans.

I’m always amazed at the sheer size of the frozen vegetable section in the grocery store.  I honestly didn’t learn to enjoy veggies until I discovered that fresh produce is the only way to go.  And, if something you love is only in season for a few months (or even a few weeks!), it’s better […]
