This isn’t going to be a very lengthy Magazine Mondays post as the Cream Puff is tuckered out! Work is nutty again and I’m beginning to feel like I’m bouncing straight from my bed to my desk and back.

For today’s MM submission, I give you the glorious brussels sprout. I didn’t grow up eating brussels sprouts, in fact I probably tasted them for the first time about ten years ago. But I was hooked as soon as I tried them and simply don’t understand why they’re not the preferred vegetable of more people.

Last year, a good friend invited me over for dinner and one of the dishes she served was Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Lemon and Pistachios from the February 2008 issue of Bon Appétit.

I took one bite of those luscious brussels sprouts leaves drenched in lemon with all these lovely bright pistachios amongst them and I was hooked! Not only is this a fast option for dinner, but it’s delicious with a capital D to the E to the L to the I to the C to the I to the O to the U to the S!

I strongly urge you to try this dish. The Cream Puff has spoken.

As always, I’m joined by a number of other bloggers who have looked at their magazine pile and challenged it to slim down:

My dear Wandering Coyote of ReTorte is sending us Paprika Roast Chicken with Sweet Onion from the February 2009 issue of Gourmet magazine.

Angela at A Spoonful of Sugar has prepared burgers and fries that would rival any diner’s. The recipe is from Irresistible magazine.

Mandi of Red Dirt Mummy participates in her first Magazine Mondays with Baked Chicken Cannelloni from the August 2008 issue of Australian Table.

My sweet Jenny of All Things Edible made some yummy Cinnamon Buns from the February 2007 issue of Fine Cooking.

The lovely Joanne of Frutto della Passione (whom I missed seeing when she was in Toronto) made Fritole Ricche in honour of Carnevale.

So there you have it! Look how many magazines were cleared out in the name of Magazine Mondays! Remember, you don’t have to post your recipe on a Monday to participate. But if you have posted a magazine recipe, just send me the link and I’ll post it!

Have a wonderful week, everyone!

Ciao!
