I am a huge fan of roasted vegetables, and at the top of that list are Brussel Sprouts. I bet I cook them 2-3 times per week. If you haven’t yet figured out your go-to recipe for these tiny cabbages, this cast iron version is the answer. I absolutely love this recipe - it's both quick and delicious, and (amazingly) is something the whole family enjoys.

How to cook Cast Iron Brussel Sprouts

  1. Trim bottom of brussels sprouts, and slice each in half top to bottom. Heat oil in cast-iron pan over medium-high heat until it shimmers; put sprouts cut side down in one layer in  pan. Sprinkle with salt.
  2. Cook, undisturbed, until sprouts begin to brown on bottom, and transfer to oven. Roast, shaking pan every 5 minutes, until sprouts are quite brown and tender, about 10 to 20 minutes.

I used this new cast iron stir fry pan from my friends over at Lodge Cast Iron, that makes this recipe all the more quick + easy. It goes a little deeper than a typical cast iron pan making it so easy to stir fry my veggies without so much mess + splatter.

After I roasted these, I wanted to try a new + updated way to serve them up for dinner. I had a little homemade mayo left over and I mixed a small amount with some grated parmesan-reggiano cheese, like a simple aioli sauce. It was so different, but in the best way possible. Creamy with a bit of tang and just the right amount of dressing or sauce - I’m pretty sure we licked the bowl clean.

Summer Salad Jars.

A simple + fun idea for serving up your summer salad in a jar, with layers of ingredients and the dressing all-in-one. Shake the jar and you’ve got a delicious lunch, a perfect portable meal on-the-go, for a picnic or taking to eat at your desk at the office.

If you know me by now, you know I have a thing for jars. When I was little, I loved playing in my grandmother's pantry because she kept nothing in it's original packaging but instead transferred everything to be stored into various sized glass jars. So, when I discovered salad jars, it pretty much changed the salad game for me. 

As a mom of three, I am always looking for ways to make meal times simpler. This salad jar recipe allows me to grab a quick lunch while still being able to get all my greens in. The ingredients store so well in a classic glass jar, and their portability allows you to simply open your fridge, grab it, and go. And the best part is that everyone can add layers of the toppings they love the most so everyone gets what they want.

What I love about this concept, is that you can add just about anything you have lying around in your pantry/fridge. I always try to include a seasonal fruit or vegetable, nuts/seeds, and a protein such as black beans or grilled chicken. Another idea would be to include a hearty grain such as quinoa or farrow. For this particular jar, I used arugula as my greens and added in hard-boiled eggs, bacon, blueberries, mozzarella and sunflower seeds. I also love to top mine off with my classic salad dressing.
