What tool do you guys use to follow your favourite blogs?
I was a devout Google Reader girl, but since then I transferred all my eggs to the Feedly basket. That’s what most people seem to have done. It took a long time to get used to, but now I love it.
And of course, I am always on the lookout for amazing blogs to add to my Feedly. They don’t have to be food-related, either – in fact, I’m a little inundated with food blogs so I welcome different stuff. My favourite non-food blogs are still Young House Love, Bower Power and Duchess Kate. Yeah, I just admitted that. And I challenge you to find someone who knows more about the Royal Family than I do.
ANYWAY, I’ve gotten distracted again. This post is about BRUSSELS. Notice how I spelled that? It’s the right way, like the city in Belgium. I didn’t know until I wrote this post. They’re Brussels sprouts, not brussel sprouts like I pronounce them. Ooops. Brussel is not a word.
What’s the correlation between Feedly and favourite blogs and Brussels sprouts? WELL, I’ll tell you.
I found a new blog I just LOVE! IT’s called Nooschi, and it’s a Canadian food blog, and they post recipes, restaurant reviews and product reviews. And they’re based in Ottawa! I stumbled upon them on Urbanspoon (where I am currently #14!), while looking at other Ottawa food bloggers.
I was planning Thanksgiving dinner around the time I found this Brussels sprouts recipe on their blog, and I was sold!
- 8 cups of Brussels sprouts
- 2 tsps of Dijon mustard
- 3 tbsps olive oil
- 4 tbsps balsamic vinegar
- 4 tsps sugar
- Salt & pepper, to taste
- Wash and trim the Brussels sprouts, peeling away any yucky leaves. Score the bottoms with an X (this helps them cook faster). In a big bowl, mix the remaining ingredients and add Brussels. Toss to coat. Pour onto baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until tender.
