Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorite holidays for obvious reasons. I love being with family and the general merriment. I love a time of year where people express their gratitude and help others willingly. It's fabulous. Another reason I love this time of year is because I get to make my favorite Brussels sprouts recipe! We found it years ago, and it has hit our table every year since! For the fantastic recipe click here. I know what you're thinking: Brussels Sprouts? Really? Yes! Just try it. It will change your outlook on Brussels sprouts if you have a negative view on them currently. If you love them already, then it's just another great way to enjoy them.
