"Eat your vegetables," Mom always said. Ok. Not my mom. But fictional moms said this, for sure, right? Anyway, if this Brussels sprouts recipe had been served at family dinner tables, I guarantee you no one at all would need urging. Because it is absolutely scrumptious. Pretty easy, too. So, I . . .
This is, in fact, the easiest and most delicious chestnut stuffing ever. I made it up, so determine quantities and proportion to your liking. I swear, it really doesn't matter. "This is the stuffing from now until infinity," my husband pronounced on Thanksgiving. Easy Chestnut . . .

I've tasted a chocolate chip cookie or two in my time--they're my all-time favorite cookie, but only home made. No question that Toll-House has a very good chocolate chip cookie recipe and I thought it was the best chocolate chip recipe ever. That is, until sister-in-love brought us some Neiman . . .
