Next we have Deb from Kahakai Kitchen, who made a Brussels Sprouts Salad with Pancetta and Cranberries from one of Tyler's new books, Stirring the Pot. Deb went outside of her comfort zone with this vegetable but was lured in with the pancetta. Deb's results? Converted! She would definitely make this again. Deb decided they needed no accompaniment and had the salad as a light dinner. Max the cat refrained.
Another Brussels sprouts recipe was chosen by Gloria of Cookbook Cuisine. Unfortunately Gloria didn't care for the Bacon Braised Brussels Spouts and Crunchy Roasted Rosemary Potatoes that she found on the Food Network website. We all applaud the fact that she chose to do two recipes, and hope that next week Gloria finds something she loves.
Next we have Andrea from Nummy Kitchen who made (not so) Cold Sesame Noodles, a dish she found on the Food Network Website. Andrea is a noodle lover, like me, and couldn't resist adding these adorable children's chopsticks for the photo. She enjoyed the noodles and is already thinking of new variations for them!
Lastly we have my own submission. On my site, Living in the Kitchen with Puppies, I posted the results of a recipe from one of Tyler's new cookbooks, Dinner at My Place. I made Penne with Spicy Italian Sausage, Cream, Tomatoes, and Peas and it was a big hit with the family. We have had early darkness, rain and high winds lately and this hearty, delicious dish was perfect for them to come home to.
