    Wish I roasted these. I thought they were bland. Sadness.

      Ei, I cannot ever comment on your new blog. I don’t know why. I agree the caramelization of roasted is more delicious than en papillote. As for your blog question, I’d say Dorie posts belong on the Cookbook Immersion Project because what else is FFWD than one big cookbook immersion. AND, I can leave comments on that one :)

        I couldn’t comment today either :-(

          Well, alright then. I am definitely not tech-savvy enough to have a clue what the problem is regarding commenting on the blog. As of next week’s recipe, I’ll move my FFwD and TwD posts back over to Cookbook Immersion Project, and if anyone wants to read about my Italian adventure, you know where to find that, too!

      I agree that you should move FFwD back to your other blog simply because I never had issues commenting on that one.

    I went with roasting… the vegetables in this dish are some of the best for roasting.

    Roasted. not a fan of the “en papillote”, especially for veggies. Loved the caramelization :)

    This was a easy way to cook vegetables! The apple was a sweet surprise!

    I tried this both ways, and I’m thinking the foil packet is not all that necessary. A tasty side dish!

    Be sure to check out my haiku conversion of the actual recipe this week to celebrate me actually being on time with a recipe:

    We liked these vege packets. I think roasting would have been a better way to go, but the packets were FUN and something different.

    This was a nice side, though I think I like roasting without papillote better.

    Gift wrapped mine in parchment, which is pretty, but not sure it is worth giving up the carmelization that would come from roasting (your post made me drool, Mardi!)

    Butternut Squash, Brussels Sprouts, Granny Smith and Winter Sage – simply delectable “en papillote”.

    For all the Doristas that are participating in the Valentine’s Day Cookie Exchange, I hope you are all enjoying your baking and creating! Dont forget to get them in the mail by next Friday at the very latest, unless you are willing to pay for them to arrive sooner than parcel post allows – so that we all get our cookies in time to write the recipes up for our special Valentine’s Day posts! Check back to the FFWD main site for a special LYL page for that day!

    Delicious:) Will be making these again. They are so quick and easy:)

    I originally posted this on a “cook’s choice” FFwD in 2011 (back in the olden days…).

    So in lieu of Brussels sprouts, I have soup.

    Have a good weekend!

    Delicious, but I’ll probably skip the foil next time:

  17. Riseson February 3, 2013 at 1:13 AM #

    We loved this one. It will become a staple for sure. (Sorry I am a bit late- I was in bed yesterday with an awful migraine!) Better now and posting the link!

    I think it ‘much ado about nothing’
