Look What I Made {1}

As has been sung...
"the weather outside is frightful!"
Which means that inside, we're wanting warm, comforting food.
my husband LOVES brussel sprouts!
Now, I'm going to confess to you all that in almost 30 years, I have never fixed sprouts for him.
I know. Shameful.
So, when I came across THIS RECIPE on one of my favorite blogs
I knew I had to give it a try!

I bought the sprouts...really kinda cute, don't ya think!?!

I quartered them and prepped them.

And added all the other goodies!
{I used Feta cheese, instead of blue...cause I'm not a blue cheese gal}

The dish was a great treat on New Years Day.
I discovered who in the family likes sprouts (other than my husband, that is)
and who likes cranberries, walnuts and feta.
It was so funny - some liked the add ins, and some liked the sprouts.
Everyone loved the flavor.
And, I think that I might have liked the dish most of all!

Excited to be joining Tamar

  3. I've never eaten brussel sprouts! (But I like cabbage: are they similar?)
    I'd never get hubby to touch 'em!

    never tasted them, never ate them till about 2 years ago, they were awesome!! who knew?? not me!!

  11. Brussel sprouts have never crossed my lips but your photo makes them look so good I could really be tempted.
