Author Notes

I was so excited to see this on the challenge lineup. Brussels sprouts are my boyfriend's favorite vegetable, and I used to get so tired of cooking them. But finally, I took it as a challenge - and this is one of my favorite results. It's fast, easy, and tasty. —Erin McDowell

I always carry three kinds of hot sauce in my purse. I have a soft spot for making people their favorite dessert, especially if it's pie. My first cookbook, The Fearless Baker, is out on October 24, 2017.
