About Me

My photo
My tremendously supportive husband & I have 3 wonderful children, 1 dog, 12 laying hens, 2 dairy goats, 3 bee hives, and a 2000 sq foot vegetable garden on a small 1/4 acre lot in the city. In the center of it all is our small 1,000 sq foot house purchased in 2008 as a foreclosure that we fully renovated to host our growing family, home school adventures, and small home business (CozyLeaf.com). We have a desire to learn a path to self sufficiency finding ways to be good stewards of the resources God has given us. We want to learn to live with less as we laydown roots to our little homestead.

Brussel Sprouts in garlic butter with soy sauce

This is my families new favorite side dish thanks to my dear friend Julie.

Brussel sprouts, cut, sauteed in butter and garlic with a little soy sauce right at the end! Delicious, easy and super healthy!

I can not get enough of these little yummy nuggets! Hope you all give them a try too...i mean really, when you start with butter and garlic how can you possibly go wrong!?!


  1. Add a little ginger and honey to this recipe next time - you won't be sorry!

  2. I am half tempted to make these right now just because that sounds SO good!!!
