Goodbye winter food, Hello Spring!


One of my favorite things about winter is that I get to eat my favorite comfort foods like braised short ribs and home made chicken soup. There is something about succulent beef served with good old potatoes and gravy that screams comfort and feeds the soul.
During summer time we tend to eat very light meals and the last thing we want to eat is a heavy meal that will weigh us down. Since we have started experiencing warmer weather in Boston I decided to make my last comfy cozy winter meal this past weekend. 
This meal included  braised steak , roast potatoes , Brussels sprouts with carrots and a rich onion gravy to top it off.

Wondering how to make yummy Brussels sprouts like those in my last winter meal? see recipe below for a quick and easy recipe.

1/2 pound Brussels sprouts
