Cook: Sweet Potato and Eggplant Bacon Pasta

As Columbus traded some of his gold coins for a […]


Cook: BrussBeBac (Brussels Sprouts, Pale Ale and Eggplant Bacon)

Earlier this year I espoused my love for Brussels sprouts in sandwich form. I talked about how I used to hate them, how they were a big part of my nightmares and how some people think they are the new it vegetable.
