Swimsuit season is here, short shorts are filling the stores, and blogs across the internet are posting light, summery salads day in and day out. And I’m over here grabbing butter by the pound-full to whip into Funfetti cookies. Awwwwwyesssss.
By the time we discovered Brussels sprouts could go above and beyond the over-boiled mini cabbages stigmatized in our youth, everyone already had their perfect recipe. In the last year or so, I feel like these lil’ sprouts have become the newly chosen foodie fad. Every up and coming restaurant or food truck seems to have a version of their own Brussels sprouts, whether they’re roasted, flash fried, served with an Asian peanut sauce or drenched in a savory chili concoction.
Well hello there, it’s been a while since we last saw each other. You may have thought I was merely rendered comatose for a few weeks after those Funfetti Sandwich Cookies, which isn’t exactly untrue. But no, I’m finally resettling into my cozy food blog-o-sphere after a bit of crazy work, vacation, and R&R.
