  • Last night I made the asparagus fries. Best ever!!! I didn’t know asparagus could taste so good. Keep the recipies coming!!

  • I just got a Fitbit and I’ve been trying to eat healthier, so this round-up is so helpful!


  • I made the warm brussels sprout salad tonight for supper, and there are no words to say how delicious it is!! I did omit the craisins and forgot to add the cayenne, but it was still wonderful. You could easily serve it with a piece of chicken or some other type of meat on the side, and it would be great cold on top of a burger. Seriously, tho, you must try it. It couldn’t be any better. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!!!

  • Yummmm! Always on the look out for more veggie dishes, thanks for this wonderful spread! =)
