Not your average brussels

 

Lucky for TEB (my sweet hubs), I am a pretty good cook. I grew up cooking with my mom and grandma. We were in the kitchen constantly. They were always teaching me their sweet southern ways, from canning tomato juice to shucking corn from the back of my grandpa’s pickup truck. Those memories are something I will never take for granted, and I owe it to them for my love of cooking and entertaining. As someone who loves to cook, I am constantly mixing spices and ingredients to make new flavors. Although, I personally leave out dairy, grains, and a few other things, it’s always fun to find new combinations and dishes.

This recipe is on constant rotation in our home. I make these brussels sprouts for a side dish at least once a month. It pairs well

with other veggies or even chicken or turkey.

Toasted Coconut Granola

Hello and happy Monday! I hope you had a nice, refreshing weekend! We always do some batch cooking on Sunday as well as prepare TEB’s lunches for the week! So, yesterday, I made this yummy toasted coconut granola to have on hand for various things this week!

A lot of granolas at the grocery store tend to have lots of added junk in them, and are often $12-15. There are a couple of brands I trust, but 9 times out of 10, I’d rather make my own if I can!
