I can't be the only one who hates trying to look up online recipes, finding a good one, and then having to scroll through a thousand words just to find the instructions. I also can't be the only one who dislikes cooking but loves eating.

Because of these things, I've decided to start a series called Foodie Friday where I'll post delicious and (mostly) easy recipes each week. I've also included a printable pdf at the bottom of the article. Without further ado, I give you...

  6. Take out of the oven, add tomatoes.
  7. Bake another 5-10 minutes, until all the veggies are cooked.

Tips & Tricks

A couple of notes from my own experience... The foil isn't necessary, it just makes for easier clean up and I dislike doing the dishes more than I dislike cooking. I used matchstick carrots and that was a mistake. Don't make the same mistake as me. If you want to use frozen Brussels sprouts, they tend to be juicier but don't try to cut them in half. I really like the Aidells sausage options and this particular time, I used the Spicy Mango.
