Roasted Brussels Sprouts And Potatoes

Hmmmmm... Brussels Sprouts... My relationship with these little guys wasn't on the best of terms when I was a child.  In fact, the only way I could get them down was if I plugged my nose, chewed quickly and washed them down with a glass full of water.  There was no love.  Then, out of the blue, I tried them as an adult and was head over heals!  Funny how that is... This is my favorite way to eat them.  It's such an easy and simple recipe... and the result is simply AMAZING!

12 ounces Brussels Sprouts
20 ounces Honey Gold or Baby Yukon Gold Potatoes
2 shallots, sliced
3 tablespoons fresh chives, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1.  Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels Sprouts and pull off any leaves that have turned brown.
2.  Place all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to coat the ingredients evenly.
3.  Pour the ingredients in a 9x13 pan and bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for 35-40 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
4.  While it's baking, shake the pan every 10 minutes or so to brown the ingredients evenly.

I had a similar childhood reaction to sprouts. I'm not sure if it was a kid thing, or just the way my mom cooked them. Yours look delicious!
Your brussel sprout and potato dish looks really yummy.

Licorice Lemonade

I am always on the lookout for good black licorice.  It's one of those things that I like to have in my cupboards for when I need a little something sweet.  I thought up this lemonade in attempts to use up the lemons on our tree and satisfy my love of licorice.  And with the temperature here pushing 110 degrees Fahrenheit, an ice cold glass of anything, really hits the spot!

Friday Night Camp Out, Gourmet Tin Foil Dinners

We decided to go camping this past weekend on a whim.  I wanted to keep it close to home, so we set up camp in our backyard.  I wasn't feeling up to packing everything up and using a potty that wasn't my own... I've gotten really lazy in my old age... plus, my kids are young enough that I can get away with it.  I used to be quite the outdoors woman in my college years.  I almost majored in Recreational Therapy, which will come as a shock to many who know me now.  I did try to make our camp out as much like REAL camping as possible, so we lit our fire pit, set up our tent and  I made these yummy tin foil dinners, which could easily be taken and made on a REAL camp out.  The kids loved cooking them and gobbled them up!  After our tummies had their fill, we just sat around the fire, telling stories and looking up at the stars until bedtime.  I have to say, it was a great use of a Friday night!

Chive And 'Cream Cheese' Smashed Red Potatoes

It seems that on every cooking competition on TV, pureed this, and foamed that, are all the rave.  I don't get it.  All I know is, as Moto Moto the Hippo from Madagascar says, "I like 'em chunky"... at least when it comes to potatoes... and babies.  Here is one of my favorite ways to make them... potatoes, that is.  Super easy and amazingly delicious!
Ingredients 2 1/2 pounds red potatoes, washed and cubed water for boiling salt to taste 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives 4 ounces Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
Directions 1.  Boil the potatoes in a pot of water for 10-15 minutes or until they are tender.  Check with a fork. 2.  Drain the water and mix in the 'cream cheese', and chives and stir with a large spoon, breaking up the potatoes as you mix.  You could use a potato masher, but like I said, "I like 'em chunky". 3.  Salt to taste.
