  1. My husband and I were not big fans of brussels sprouts until we tried this recipe. It is delicious!
  2. Yummy! I love brussels sprouts and this recipe did not disappoint. I made this as written, just reduced the butter to 1 tbsp. The balsamic vinegar adds great flavor to the sprouts and onions. This is an easy way to 'fancy-up' brussels sprouts. Thanx for posting!


<p>I love to cook. I'll try and cook anything once, truthfully, I've had some disasters. That is half of the fun. I like to cook for alot of people, cookouts, holiday dinners for friends and family, that sort of thing. I still enjoy doing the day to day stuff. My wife and girls are kind of picky eaters but they are starting to try differnet things. Since I lost my job I have more time to play in the kitchen. My pet peeve is watching a food commercial where the father is shown to be like a kitchen moron and has to do frozen or take out. I think alot of us dads could do circles around some of the women cooks. <br />My favorite pasttimes are fishing and miniature golf tournaments. Yes, miniature golf tournaments. Check out or I play with my girls and my brother plays in them now too. It's a blast and you get to meet some great people and play in Maine, Connecticut, or where ever you want to go, chances are there is a tournament near you and you don't even know it. We've been playing in them since 2005.</p>
