Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

Rule #155: Whoever said Brussels sprouts weren’t tasty clearly never had the right ones. 

I love a side dish that I can throw together, shove in the fridge, and pull out whenever it’s time to eat! This Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad is one of those easy sides. It’s light, zippy, and takes just minutes to prepare!

Beef Bourguignon

Rule #91: Beef B. by D. is the way to roll.

Translation: Beef Bourguignon by Daddy is the way to roll. Julia Childs has the ultimate “impress the in-laws” type recipe, but this one is meant for the every day folks who want to get something yummy on the table without having to invoke a famous chef from the past. My dad would make this on a lazy Sunday when we were all just hanging around the house. The smells are one of those food memories that will always have a special place in my heart.

It should really be its own love language. I know, for me, that if I love you, I wanna cook for you. That’s why potlucks are so special: everyone pitches in to make the ultimate spread of little love notes. Even if all you do is pick up the cokes and ice, you’re showing someone else you’re lovin’ on ’em by filling their tummies.
