Tasty Delights-- Roasted Brussels Sprouts w/ Balsamic Glaze

I'm walking through my grocery and I spot...these!! And had an OMG I NEED THEM moment. And so...the brussels sprouts stalk came home with me. How freaking neat does this thing look?!

I've only ever seen de-stalked brussels sprouts in real life but I'd seen that Gilmore Girls episode from ages ago where the hippy 'long haired freak' has the farmers market in the square and is pissing off Taylor who is trying to kick him out of the square and there's a bit with brussels sprouts on a stalk and oooing and awing over them.

Anyways. They just had to be bought! And with fancy brussels sprouts I decided to try a new recipe for them. Typically I just slice and roast them with a little oil and garlic. This time I got fancy and did a balsamic glaze to go over them. And holy cow...yummy! I think this would be a fun side for Christmas.

AFTH w/ Nancy Herkness-- Naughty Billionaires’ Wish List for Santa

Earlier this summer I was asked to be a judge for a writing contest and one of the books I was sent was the first in Nancy Herkness's series.

I'd been having a reading struggle at the time and picked hers up and just adored it.

The writing was easy and swept me away and I was seriously smitten with the series trope--three guys who meet and they make a bet. The bet? Finding "the one" and falling in love. Yes. These guys are betting on finding their true loves and getting their happily ever afters. How freaking cute is that? Seriously!

Nancy's gonna take over today and share some fun...what her heroes would put on their Christmas Wishlist to Santa. Yall have a good time with her then hit those comments! ~anna

4 stars-- Duke of Pleasure (Maiden Lane #11) by Elizabeth Hoyt

Dark, sexy, and thrilling! Duke of Pleasure was everything I've come to know and love about Hoyt's romances. Passion, danger, and characters that'll leave you addicted.

So, basically, Hugh has made some enemies while trying to take down a secret society. Which kinda led to an ambush in a dark alley and kinda being saved by a mysterious masked...woman. Who vanishes just as quickly as she appears. Yeah, that'll catch a man's attention for sure. Her joining in on the hunt for the villains? Yeah...he's hooked.

Crafting with Kitties-- Christmas Ornament Wreath


The holidays are here! And with that? A new wreath. I saw a video on facebook where they were using a pool noodle to make a wreath and thought...oooo! I can do this! But, alas, since it's not summer there are no pool noodles to be had. lol
