Golden Brussels Sprouts

Okay, so I wasn't even going to write about these, because the recipe's all simple, and it has already been beautifully documented here, but this is what I made tonight, and it might just have been the best thing I've ever had. Or almost, I mean I know that's an odd thing to say about brussels sprouts, and maybe it has something to do with the nice day, and my sunny walk with my mother, and my well behaved children flourishing in swim classes today which continues to ease my maternal guilt. It's been a nice day. And for dinner we had squash soup and these little beauties, which we all just grabbed by the handful from the bowl until they were gone, a dazed look in our eyes like we were eating caramel popcorn or something else equally addictive. And when the bowl was empty, we were silent, except for Sadie, who just kept saying, I like brussels sprouts over and over. Wow. What an experience. I suggest it. So go look at Heidi's beautiful recipe and make it, but times it by 20, because it will blow your mind, and you won't be able to stop.


  1. oooh that looks good! My dad is a good cook too! I don't like brussel sprouts though, but the rest looks very good!-I am very picky, and I mean very!! That is nice of you to cook a lot for your daughter and family! My dad calls it "short order cooking" when he has to make two different things for us. It is very nice of him though!

  2. MMMMMM.... These sound so delicious!! I really only discovered brussel sprouts in the last few years. I'll try this out soon!

  3. Interesting. I agree with you totally. Furthermore I have another point to add. I think its essential that children today have a friendly and good swim instructor to guide them along. So that they will take to the hobby with delight, rather than find it a useless skill. But then again, most kids always love swimming afterall.

  4. I used that very recipe to win the hubs over to brussels sprouts last year. They are the best best best! In fact, that's what we're having for dinner tonight. According to our "what's in season" wheel, brussels sprouts are good to go!

  5. Oh shoot, I couldn't follow the link, but if it involves roasting them, I'm so down with that after finding it in this book:

    Vegetable Love by Barbara Kafka. It's a great book that honors the art of simplicity. I use it often, you know.....until I start....making my own recipes. Anyway, I meant to show it to you when you were here.

  6. Ok, all, I've fixed the link! Now go make 'em...
