My dad hates brussels sprouts, so I was never forced to eat them as a kid. I don't blame him because I think my grandma boiled most vegetables. I think the first time I ever ate one was at Joshua's in Wells, Maine - the favorite restaurant of our honeymoon. Of course those brussels sprouts came from the chef/owner's backyard garden, but I hoped the pioneer woman's holiday recipe for roasted brussels sprouts would turn out something ok with the ones I could find at Kroger.
