    I’m going to give your shaved brussel sprouts a try – I made roasted ones last night and they were so delish – first time I’ve made them at home (my hubby won’t eat them so it’s just for me). I order them in restaurants all the time and they are awesome but always so oily – I did mine with some olive oil, salt and pepper and they were great.

      Definitely try it. It was delicious! I used Grapeseed oil to sautee it (it’s more flavorful than olive oil).

    Any thing wrapped in bacon has my vote:) 2012 resolutions for me were not physical goals I wanted to accomplish. My goals were more attitude based, and focused on my mental process. I had 8 on my resolution list. I believe I kept 7 out the 8 – 99% of the time. I am such a bad reader. I don’t think I’ve read 32 books in the past 32 years. Shame, shame on me.

      That’s great that you did “mental” goals. It’s easy to forget about that kind of stuff but it’s important to grow emotional health too. Can I ask what kind of “mental process” goals you worked on?

    Those lemon garlic scallops look awesome! I’ve cooked scallops once in my life and they turned out tough – I never tried them again. But it might be TIME in our case, too, as we are trying to do new things.

    In terms of 2012 goals: I don’t remember having anything specific at the beginning of the year, although I completed my first 5K, moved to a new country, learned how to do 35 push ups in one go, bought our first home, and now have a new job starting next week! Those are pretty darn good for a year, don’t you think? 🙂 Wow, just writing it down in one paragraph makes me feel like it’s been a VERY eventful year.

      If the scallops were tough, they were probably overcooked. It’s really a very quick few min in the skillet. It’s easy to overcook meat and seafood because of that “ick” factor of eating undercooked proteins. But the scallops shouldn’t be cooked very long and the fork should go through them like they were soft butter.

      Congrats on your year! That’s a lot of really good stuff.

    Greek Quinoa Salad! That looks amazing. I still feel as though 2012 has just flown by.

      It was really tasty! But I’m a huge fan of anything “Greek”!

      Pancakes aren’t usually something I crave, but these were good!
