we finally got a little winter weather here in sc. i was hoping for snow, but of course, we just got freezing rain. it did provide an opportunity to stay home, sip hot chocolate with my man, and snuggle with sage. if only our fireplace was working...
stay warm, everyone!

the first time i tried brussels sprouts, i think i was in high school. i was just starting to take interest in cooking and eating healthy, so i thought "what could be healthier than brussels sprouts?" i bought them frozen (first wrong move), and then steamed them (second wrong move), and tried them without any seasonings (third wrong move). needless to say, i hated them. fast forward 6 years and i thought i'd try my hand at them again. after buying them fresh, learning how to season them, and cooking them correctly, i was sold! brussels sprouts are quick, easy, and so so tasty. these little guys are now staples in our house. find the simple recipe below :)
oven roasted brussels sprouts
- fresh brussels sprouts
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- extra virgin olive oil
like i said, this recipe is so simple. i've provided the ingredients as guidelines for you to follow. there is no specific or exact measurement ... honestly, i switch the amounts up every time. i also think that creating something delicious, without specific ingredient amounts, can be really empowering as a cook :).
preheat oven to 425 F. then, wash the brussels sprouts and cut off the ends. cut them in half. some of the leaves will fall off - you can either cook these with the brussels sprouts or throw them away. next, toss them in olive oil, and coat in garlic powder and onion powder (lots and lots of it). roast in the oven at 425 for 20 minutes, flipping and tossing halfway through.
remove from oven, and sprinkle some salt on them. serve them as a side, or as the main course with an egg on top.
