Grilled Chicken + Lemon Parmesan Brussel Sprouts


Man you guys, I can't believe I am about to type this but it is so nice to be back in the kitchen.  And while I totally love cooking because I am progressively getting better and better at it.  I hate doing the dishes.  But with J feeling under the weather since, I guess the end of December we have been indoors for quite some time.  So it was really nice to feel back to my normal self again, even if unfortunately it was indoors.  

This was my first time making brussel sprouts and I have to be honest I had a total fail on the baking dish and ended up scraping most of it off the baking pan because I forgot to spray it with non-stick spray.  

Any of y'all think brussel sprouts get a lot of unnecessary hate? Seriously, I mean of course they aren't like eating a piece of chocolate bar [which I am not a huge fan of anyway] but they are a vegetable and are healthy for you for the most part so I can understand why people aren't jumping for joy at the sound of them but I thought they were just utterly disgusting because of what some people were saying. 

Anyway when it comes to cooking a lot of the time I try to use ingredients that I have in the house because I don't have a ton of time to constantly keep running in and out of the store to make these crazy recipes I find on Pinterest, so I do have a habit of looking at a recipe getting an idea to start from.  Cafe Delites has a pretty yummy looking recipe I'll have to try if I ever h
