Yogurt & Brussels Sprouts?

Man, I love brussels sprouts.  The other day I decided to roast them in the oven instead of making them on the stove like I usually do.  It's soooo much easier to just coat them in olive oil, put some salt & pepper on them and throw them in the oven for 15-20ish minutes, or until they get nice & brown.  I love the dressing from the brussels sprout salad that I make from Shutterbean, so I mixed it with that afterwards.  I also add in a bit of honey, then throw in some Parmesan cheese & it gets all nice and melted and delicious.  I ate it with some Greek salad... yum.

The other day I dipped some frozen blueberries, raspberries & blackberries in some vanilla yogurt.  I just used a toothpick to pick up the berries, so I had to wait a bit until they thawed out a bit.  And as you can see, I'm pretty messy, ha.  They were really good, though.  I have to say I preferred the ones that were just yogurt (you can kind of see them at the back, I ran out of berries.  Well, I just had a bit of extra yogurt.) with a hint of berry flavour (from dipping all of the berries into the yogurt).   I totally ate them all up in one sitting while doing some blog reading, ha.  I'll probably be making these again!

Have you tried any new recipes lately?  I know that these aren't really "recipes", but they are two "newish" things that I tried.  Okay, that's enough with the quotation marks, ha.  Let me know what new recipes you've tried lately or some recipes you can't wait to try out!

  5. When I was little, my mom had a food dehydrator. It had a plastic sheet that sat on the trays so you could put liquid-y things on it to dry. We would put little dollops of yogurt on the tray and dry them into yogurt chips. If you can find a dehydrator for a good price, it would totally be worth trying. We also did stuff like pineapple and bananas. My boyfriend and I have one, and we use it to dry little cooked pieces of meat for treats for our dog Winston.

  6. Ahh I've been seeing brussel sprouts all over this week! I want some haha. But yeah, I tried a simple cauliflower recipe a few days ago and was amazed at how easy it is to turn a confusing veggie into a beloved one. I had never ever cooked them before, and disliked them just as much as I used to hate bsprouts...but now I loveeee it! Will post the recipe this week. It really was uber simple ;)
