MY REVIEW

"The three adults at our table had a split decision on this one. Husband (who normally doesn't gravitate toward sprouts) and daughter (who always likes them) thought they were quite good. Husband postulated that the white wine reduced some of the inherent bitterness that comes frequently with brussels sprouts. I, however, thought the lemon was a bit too much and I followed the recipe exactly! Not sure I will make again. If I do, I will simply reduce the lemon for my tastes."

"Brussies have always been one of our favorite veggies, so when I saw this recipe, I just had to give it a whirl. I have made a similar version but this one takes it up a few bumps, especially with the lemon. As a volunteer field editor, I highly recommend this recipe, and it will be a regular on my table."

"I do not really care for brussel sprouts but know that I need to incorporate more "greens" into my diet so I tried this recipe. Surprisingly, it was very good. I loved the zing of the lemon juice. I did add some cayenne pepper to give it some zip. I will definitely make this again and add some crumbled bacon."
