RECIPE BACKSTORY
I just love brussels sprouts - and I can have so much fun with them because my hubby hates them so I know whenever I make them that he won't touch them...so they are mine mine mine! This recipe is a bit on the rich side so you can't eat it all the time, but I figure the veggies kind of even things out :)
