This one comes with a story...

I originally blogged this recipe here at my regular blog.

Yummy Brussel Sprouts (Maybe even if you don't love brussel sprouts. Maybe not.)

My Brussel Sprouts Recipe:
Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Halve and wash as many Brussel Sprouts as you want to consume. When water comes to a boil, dump in the Brussel Sprouts. Boil gently for 8-10 minutes or until Brussel Sprouts are just fork tender. Do NOT overcook or they will become mooshy and bitter. Strain and rinse with cold water.
Slice or mince about 4 or 5 garlic cloves. In large hot pan pour a few Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Place garlic in pan and brown. When the garlic begins to brwon nicely, add the Brussel Sprouts and cook on med/high heat for about 3-5 minutes, stirring very frequently. You want some of them to go a bit golden on the edges but you obviously don't want them to burn so keep them moving. Remove from heat and serve.

They are DELICIOUS no matter what my Mom thinks!
