Yes, my name really is spelled that way.


easy shaved brussels sprout salad.

I think every kid hated brussels sprouts.  I was no different although I was not against cooking them.  One year when my brother and I were kids - my mom thinks I was 11 or 12, we did an anniversary dinner for them at home.  I cooked and my brother served.  One of the things I made was brussels sprouts and my mom said she still remembers that dish!  I wish I could remember the recipe but it was something French.  This recipe is not French but delicious and a perfect way to mix up the humble sprout....
