Our Christmas, Instagram Style

Our Christmas this year was quiet and lovely. Kiwi and I cooked up a delicious Christmas brunch {we made this and this} and we celebrated with our families. Decorations were minimal, but I loved the pops of color from bright washi tape accents and the sweet simplicity of this garland from Anthropologie. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, enjoy the rest of 2011 and ring in the New Year in style!

The most delicious brussels sprouts recipe EVER.

Yes, that's right... I used the words delicious and brussels sprouts in the same sentence. I know what you're thinking... Delicious? Brussels sprouts? I'm here to tell you it's true folks. I cooked up a batch of these lovelies from 101 Cookbooks for Thanksgiving this year and there was not a single morsel left in the house. My 14-year-old sister even went back for seconds! I think the grated Parmesan makes them extra yummy. The recipe was simple and easy to follow, so if you're looking for a way to add some tasty greenery to your next meal this is it.

*I added some toasted almonds for a little extra crunch. I highly recommend it.
