First post

I've wanted to start a blog for ages but never knew what to start with.  Today it came to me.

My first, original creation in the Kitchen :-)  Try and and enjoy it!


My email to family announcing my awesome creation!

Hi Fam!

I just made up this recipe last night and had to share it cause it’s SOOOOOO YUMMY!!!!  I was inspired by a lady at my grocery store asking if I had tried Brusselsprouts roasted in olive oil and lemon juice...and this is what it turned into :)  You should try it cause it’s yummy and easy :)  I’m feeling quite accomplished, lol.


1 green pepper
3 or 4 leaves of kale
5 mushrooms
1 medium sweet potato
1 stalk of medium sized broccoli

1 onion
4 strips of bacon
4 brusselsprouts
2-5 cloves of garlic :)

Salt
Pepper
Olive oil
Lemon juice

----------
Pre-heat oven to 315 f.  In a roasting pan, put cut peppers, kales, mushrooms, sweet potato and broccoli.  In a separate bowl, mix 2 parts olive oil : 1 part lemon juice and salt and pepper (and any other veggie seasonings you like).  Mix well and pour over vegetables in the roasting pan.  Make sure all the veggies are covered in the mixture.

Place in oven for 30 minutes.

While roasting, cut up onions, bacon, brusselsprouts and garlic and sauté on medium heat.  Make sure you don’t over-stir while they are sautéing.

After the roasted veggies are done for 30 minutes, add sautéed mixture with ALL the juices, grease and all.  Then mix everything together really well and put back into the oven for 10 minutes while you make your pasta.

Once everything is done, serve it up :)  YUMMY!
