In Response to Re: favorite food:
Nancy and Vicki I have always hated Brussels Sprouts and that is odd because I do love cabbage. Anyway I tried them again after seeing them cooked on a show. Split them in half, drizzle with a bit of olive oil sprinkle with coarse salt. Roast in a hot oven turning once in a while so they get a bit browned. While they are cooking fry a bit of bacon, crumble and set aside. When Brussels Sprouts are tender remove from oven to serving bowl. Sprinkle with bacon. Serve to guests.....while you eat the bacon. ;) No really they do taste better this way I would not say they will replace most vegetables that I make but they are much better this way rather than boiling them. Bonus the house does not get that cabbage smell that happens with the sprouts.

My oldest son requested Brussels Sprouts for our Christmas meal. I roasted them in the oven with olive oil and salt, as you did Nikki. I also added a tablespoon of fresh rosemary before roasting. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, I added some pine nuts. Right before serving I sprinkled some grated Parmesan cheese on top of the sprouts in the serving bowl. Even my husband enjoyed these, and he was not a fan of Brussels sprouts.
