Charlie's Sweet Island Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
5 stars with my adaptation as follows: first I soaked the sprouts in salted water for close to an hour, then drained the water and tossed them with olive oil, salt, pepper, and some cumin (roughly a tsp worth each of the seasonings). Then I sliced the sprouts lengthwise and baked sliced side down in the oven at 475 degrees for 15 minutes. They will get a nice little char on them, just watch carefully to ensure they don't burn. While the sprouts cooked, I added the butter and seasonings from the recipe (all quantities the same) to a small sauce pan. Then I added about 8 tbsp's of coconut milk and reduced the sauce slightly. Once the sprouts were cooked, I placed them in a large bowl and tossed with the sauce. To quote both my girlfriend and roommate, both of whom assured me they hated brussel sprouts, "Oh my god, these are the best brussel sprouts I have ever eaten."

Chicken with Sausage and Dried Fruit

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
This is a great and easy recipe to throw together when you're going to be gone all day. There is a lot of flavor and the mix of chicken, sausage, and the dried fruit really combine well. As for my own recommendations, I think the frozen chicken is a must. I also added 3/4 cup of mushrooms to the veggie mix and used a dried fruit mix instead of just dried apples. Chicken broth is a little too boring for me, so I used beer (Sam Adams Summer Ale worked very well). As for the dried chives, it's not something I keep lying around so I just used fresh chives. All in all, a great recipe and one that gives you a little leeway to make it your own.
