You know how you have that one food growing up that you just can’t stand? For me, that was without a doubt, brussels sprouts. I couldn’t stand them and made a huge point to complain whenever I was forced to eat them (I know- such a brat!).

      Hahahhaha it’s so funny that you mention that, because I misspelled throughout this entire blog post and only noticed that it had an extra “s” after googling the health benefits of it. I had to go back and double check that I had corrected myself so I didn’t look like an idiot ;).

      If only I could! I’m actually planning on doing a post in the near future about photography and how to get your food pics accepted to sites like Foodgawker and Tastespotting to increase your site’s traffic :D

    For me it was always pumpkin (kabocha). I used to whine and whinge and refuse to take one bite.

    Now I LIVE for it :P I’ve tried to include it in just about every meal I can think of, and then some. It’s so sweet and delicious, so perfect when roasted and it just seems to melt in the mouth :)

    I’ve had a few good and bad experiences roasting brussel sprouts – I think they need to roast a little longer. This recipe looks like it could just be the way to perfect it :D

    Haha. Oh President Bush Sr. You crack me up Sir ;)

    Growing up we never really had Brussels sprouts in the house, and the only other time that I’ve tried them was at my babysitters when I was five. They were steamed and just alright. These however I actually WANT to eat. Great job!

    Thanks for your interest in my 12 Days of Christmas recipe round-up :) I’m really excited to see what everyone comes up with.

    Okay, I’ll admit. I’ve never had Brussels Sprouts. My mom must not have been a fan of them because she never made us eat them growing up, and I have yet to try them. Maybe one of these days I’ll get brave.

    This looks so much like the brussel sprouts we had at Bon Ton Cafe on Magazine Street in New Orleans last February, and they were awesome. Been lookin’ for a recipe since.
