Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

brussels sprouts

one of the best tasting fall vegetables would be Brussels sprouts. this mini cabbage is very easy to make and can adjust to a variety of flavors or seasonings.  i often parboil the sprouts first for approximately ten to fifteen minutes and then drain the water, and saute with a dash of olive oil. 

the sprouts cook well after the outer layer of greens are removed and they are sliced into halves.  the quick preparation makes these a wonderful addition to any weeknight meal.  to flavor the sprouts, i used small slices of pancetta, but bacon or prosciutto could be used for variety. the sprouts taste well seasoned with salt, pepper, flavored salts or other seasonings based on your family's preferences. here are some ideas for flavoring.
