Brussel Sprouts the most disliked vegetable.

Brussel Sprouts, are one the most disliked vegetable by many people. Often times they are not cooked well. People tend to over cook them and this makes them bitter and soggy. There is a way to make them taste good.  For this you must blanch them and roast them until they become caramelized.

Here is my recipe

1 lbs of Brussel Sprouts
2 Cloves of Garlic
1 Tbs of Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper



First Step

You need to remove the tips of the sprouts then cut them in half. Remove any bad leaves.


Finely chop the garlic


Fill frying pan with water halfway up the pan about 3 or 4 cups. Bring them to boil on high heat for about 10 minutes then strain them.


Then you add olive oil to the pan along with the blanched sprouts.


Once they start to caramelize you add the garlic. Just be careful not to brown your garlic, it'll become bitter if you do.


Now enjoy the roasted brussel sprouts.

It's been a while!

It's been a while since I last wrote. Lots has happened since I lost wrote a post. Now I'm back planning to create content based on a debt free life. Yes, its possible to live debt free and enjoy some financial freedom. I might not be a financial advisor but I can enlighten you about how we manage our finances, lifestyle and my cooking.

I have a passion for spending time in the kitchen creating recipes. It's something that I missed quite a bit when I had returned to work. It wasn't about going back to work to make money it was more to go back help bring my skills to a corporate environment. Although it didn't work out the job was a bad fit for me, being creative it was hard to fit into the corporate box.

We do thrift due to the environmental costs but also the financial costs. At times its cheaper to buy used rather than new. Yes, you might go to the mall and see the most recent fashion trends but they come at a financial and environmental stain. I will update this…

Tortelini with cherry tomatoes

Some days are easier than others, when I have motivation I'll make a significant meal which takes a lot of time. Other times I'll just make either a premade chicken pot pie or chicken filets and fries. This recipe is good to use cherry tomatoes from the garden although its good for anytime of year. With our resources we can buy greenhouse tomatoes. Not only does it help buy local but it lowers transport cost. Although its move affordable during the summer months than during the winter months.
To create this recipe, you'll need 
A pack of store bought beef tortellini 1 1/2 cup of  cherry tomatoes 1 french shallot a clove of garlic 1 colored pepper (yellow, red or orange) 2 Leeks (White parts, although to save time you can buy prepackaged ones). 1/2 cup of white wine











For us it's a simple healthy recipe when I don't want to cook or spend hours in the kitchen. You can always add some cheese to it. Enjoy!
