Roasted Butternut Squash & Cranberries

There are a couple things in life I’ve just been drawn to for as long as I can remember. One of those things is the holidays. When I was little I would spend an entire afternoon decorating my room for Christmas setting up my own tree and hanging lights, my Grandma always sewed us holiday pajamas and my CD player only held Christmas CDs. I distinctly remember the fireplace burning and music playing in the background every Christmas morning as we opened gifts and waited for breakfast to be ready and I can never Read More

Bacon Brussel Sprouts Salad

To the person who made brussel sprouts the new cool veggie, thank you! As roasted brussel sprouts started popping up on appetizer menus at our favorite local spots we eventually gave them a try and I basically fell in love. For a while, roasted was the only way I ate brussel sprouts and then one day I tried a shredded brussel sprouts salad at Cooper’s Hawk (lovely winery I highly recommend for the food and wine!) and my love grew a little bit more. So for our family Christmas this year I decided to take Read More
