I promised you I’d be back with a cocktail in hand as soon as I finished writing my book. Well, I am done (at least for the moment…I have a bit of time to catch my breath before the editing phase begins) and I’d like to toast to you!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for embracing One Simple Change here on the blog and for giving me the confidence to pursue (and the support to complete) the project in book form. This book was truly a labor of love for me and I cannot wait to share it with all of you!
Hello friends! I apologize for my One Simple Change posts AND my typical recipe posts being very few and far between lately, but I do have a good excuse…my book is due in less than 2 weeks.
This book has been more work than I ever expected; I am excited to finish and get back to sharing more here. But I’ve learned SO much through the process of writing it…I can’t wait for it to be published and I am already contemplating the next project I’d like to work on :)
Anyway, I figured I’d pop in and share a great recipe I made this weekend. Also, since Thanksgiving is less than a week away, I thought I’d link up to all my previous T-day-related recipes in case your menu is still up in the air. Despite the fact that my book is due crazy soon, I will be cooking dinner for 14 people…I love Thanksgiving and I am really looking forward to it.
This Brussels sprouts recipe is just the thing for those of you seeking respite from tradition when it comes to your Thanksgiving side dishes. I adapted it from chef David Chang’s Roasted Brussels Sprouts (the recipe for which appears in The Epicurious Cookbook: More Than 250 of Our Best-Loved Four-Fork Recipes for Weeknights, Weekends & Special Occasions). I adore Brussels sprouts and have tried many different recipes over the years but this one is killer. Seriously: I loved every single sweet, salty, spicy, crunchy bite.
If this recipe is too offbeat for you Thanksgiving-wise, be sure to give it a go another time.
We were extraordinarily fortunate here in the Hudson Valley to have been spared the wrath of Sandy. Those living near the coast not so far away were not so lucky…my heart goes out to everyone whose life has been altered in any way by this devastating storm.
ps. Make sure to vote on Tuesday. It’s important. xoxo
