Josee Lanzi's Brussel Sprout Recipe I Promise You Will Want To Eat, Plus One More Fall Treat!

Josee Lanzi grew up in Quebec Canada.  From an early age she was exposed to good food from her parents that owned a restaurant, too her Grandmother that made everything from scratch.  This great upbringing shines in Josee's beautiful tasty dishes she brings to the table today.  Josee shows her no fear cooking style with these brussel sprouts.  I know many of us don't like to tackle such ingredients, since they are often not well received.  Well maybe we should all give brussel sprouts a chance with this tasty recipe Josee was kind enough to share.  You know, I just don't think you can go wrong when you add things like bacon and cheese to a dish, adding that salty bite and creamy texture we all crave.  I also love the addition of the lime juice to the brussel sprouts, not only for flavor but eliminating that unpleasant smell they are known for having when steamed. Thank you again brave and fearless Josee for tackling those scary brussel sprouts.  I think we can all be a little less fearful of them, with this great recipe in our back apron pocket.

    Since many of us will  be entertaining this next week with Thanksgiving, I also wanted to share Josee's Simply Sensational Autumn Bites.  I just love these for an easy and impressive starter to a Thanksgiving gathering or even a nice twist to your classic dinner roll.  Croissants filled with cranberries, pecans, and cream cheese, yum.  This recipe sure does combine a lot of the flavors I love to enjoy in the Fall.  You can find this recipe and more of Josee's dishes at the Real Women of Philadelphia.  Be sure to check out Josee's great blog too at the link below.
