Beauty Bites: Cruciferous Veggies

On The Chew, I heard Daphne Oz refer to cruciferous veggies as “colon’s little broom” which I find hilarious. I’ve called them that ever since. Does anyone else really really miss Daphne on The Chew? Come back Daph!  (more…)

Creamy Butternut Squash Penne with Rosemary and Parmesan

If you are looking for a cozy fall pasta dish or a meatless Monday dinner that will satisfy the carnivores in your life, look no further. If I could, I would eat Creamy Butternut Squash Penne with Rosemary and Parmesan every single day. The creamy dreamy sauce is made without the addition of butter, cream, or a roux. It is Vitamix magic at its best my friends. The addition of a cheesy panko crust on top adds the perfect amount of crunch. Serve with a fresh green salad for a hearty vegetarian dinner. (more…)

Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts

My Aunt Pat loves Brussels Sprouts, so last year for Thanksgiving, we made some just for her. Surprisingly, they ended up being the most talked about side dish at Thanksgiving. No one thought they really like Brussels Sprouts. I think this is because most people have tried them boiled. This does absolutely nothing for the Brussels Sprouts and  has given them a really bad reputation. Poor Brussels Sprouts.

However, when you put them in the oven, they come out golden brown and delicious. I love when some of the outside leaves fall off and get crispy crunchy.

So if you think that you do not like Brussels Sprouts, give these a try! (more…)
