    Some kind of "Brussels sprouts" website ^ | It was some time ago | Dani Lind (Girl, I suppose)
    All my life I’ve had a thing for the underdog. Be it the passed over toy as a little girl or the loser boyfriend as a teenager, I guess I took the ugly duckling fairy tale to heart. Now in my adulthood, I have taken the poor, rejected, locally grown vegetables under my wing—the underutilized, the newly-trendy, the formerly beloved fallen out of modern favor, or the just plain weird. In the case of Brussels sprouts, they are a vegetable all too often cooked very wrong and, hence, tend to carry a bad rap. Who wouldn’t hate Brussels sprouts if...

    In last week’s thread, we discovered that some of our Freeper Friends don’t like lima beans, and joked about doing a thread on ‘despised foods’. Instead, let’s just call it ‘less universally enjoyed’ foods; and here’s my Lima Bean Casserole recipe.

Cheesy Lima Bean Casserole 2 pks. frozen lima beans, cooked (20 oz.) Or equivalent canned 1 C. each cottage cheese and sour cream ½ C. finely diced sweet onion 2 cloves...

    Sorry if I got too worked up in that last thread. I just get so angry when I think about a non-American in the Oval Office. I don't want a military coup. I never said I did. I want my COUNTRY BACK!

    Brussels sprouts and cabbage could be the latest weapons in the battle against breast cancer, according to new research.Scientists have discovered a chemical in the green vegetables that appears to kill off breast cancer cells when combined with chemotherapy drugs. Previous studies have already suggested a link between eating such vegetables and prevention against cancer. But this is one of the first studies examining how the vegetables can play a role in treating the disease. For the latest research, British scientists studied the effects of the naturally-occuring compound indole-3-carbinol (I3C) on tumour cells in the laboratory. I3C is found in...
