Sriracha Honey Lime Brussels


You know me…I can eat my brussels raw. Point proven in my brussel sprout dijon salad  – but holy YUM, this recipe rocks! This is a killer quick and healthy snack or a side to any main dish.

  1. Preheat oven to 375degrees
  2. Wash, cut the ends & peel outer leaves off of 3C brussel sprouts – place in large bowl
  3. In a small bowl whisk together:  juice from 2 limes, 2T honey, 1T sesame oil & a large squirt of sriracha sauce (depends how hot you like it – me 2t)
  4. Pour mixture over brussels & make sure they all get coated with the sauce
  5. Spray baking sheet with cooking oil & place brussels in one layer
  6. Bake for 25minutes or until they are roasted to your liking

Hope you enjoy these spiced up brussels!

High Tea for All!

_MG_1455I am an addict. A tea addict. I love any kind – oddly enough I just went to 2 bridal showers that were both tea party themed. First, how fun is that theme and second, yippie for me! I was able to drink myself silly with tea & leave with goodies that involve my unspeakable habit.

Although I will dabble into any kind of tea I tend to stick to a few basics in my everyday.

Tazo Zen Green Tea – I have been swigging this back for years. I drink it hot or stick a bag in a bottle of cold water & let the water soak up the goodness. Swap out your morning caffeine fix for this tasty treat.

Sleepytime Herbal Tea – Goodnight ya’ll. This tea will knock you out. On nights that you need a hardy sleep I would suggest this – drink an hour before bed & you will zonk out but wake up fresh. It is also a great tea to sip on when sick – sleep off your sniffles with some shut eye.

Loose Tea or Tea Flowers – Any of it. I guess I kind of  feel like a grown up when drinking this (uh I am pretty sure I am a grownup but I’m going with it). I like it & it is fancy looking. Either grab a mug that has an infuser or a tea clamp. The specific tea I am drinking in the picture above is a tea flower: a butterfly floret green tea with fresh jasmine. Sounds fancy, right?

Cinnamon Honey Tea – I recently tried this one for the first time – there has been lots of Pinterest hype over it, sip on it & shed pounds. I started it up a few weeks ago & now I am hooked. I personally don’t even care about the weight loss part, it just straight up tastes yummy. In mug mix: 1t cinnamon, 1t honey, boiling water & stir.

Now, put down that soda, coffee or sugar charged drink & sip on some natural goodness one cup at a time while reading April book club!
