brussels sprout salad with hot bacon vinaigrette

brussels sprouts with hot bacon vinaigrette | ahappyfooddance.com I had some amazing brussels sprouts over the weekend.  Who would’ve thought the one vegetables that I hate as a kid (oh… and lima beans, but I still hate them), would now be one of my most favorite.

I think they are so versatile and when all else fails, if you just roast them with some olive oil for a long time, and season with some salt and pepper, you have the most amazing side dish for any meal.

Chimichurri Chicken Skewers - gluten free, dairy free and paleo friendly | ahappyfooddance.comHello Monday!  Why do I feel like you were just here?!

I had such a good weekend!  My fiance and I went to San Diego to visit some of his friends.  They had just bought a beautiful new home and my forever house-hunting future husband jumped at the chance to check it out.  We we out, drank, ate and stayed up way beyond my bedtime.  I can’t remember the last time I was up past midnight!  I think we even saw 1 am!

oven risotto with kale pesto

No Fuss, No Fail Oven Risotto with Kale Pesto | ahappyfooddance.comLet me be real with you – I’ve never been the biggest risotto fan.  Not that I don’t love eating it, but I’ve always had such trouble making it.  It seems like I can never get the risotto rice to just the right texture, or it takes four days to get it close and by then I’m starved and the dreaded hangry symptoms have set in.
