Brussels sprouts are easy. Rinse, trim and cut them in half. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. You can use kosher or sea salt. Always use freshly ground black pepper. I jazzed it up and used lemon pepper this time.
Place them cut side down on a baking sheet and roast them in a 400-425 oven.
No pics of the sweet potatoes, but here's how you do it: Pierce them with a knife after scrubbing them. Place on a baking and roast at 400-425. When you see that awesome clear, sticky goodness drip from the cuts, you know they are done.
Lazy girl's lighter fried corn: Grab a 10" skillet. Add 2 tsp olive oil and 1 tsp light butter. Warm the oil and then add two slices of turkey bacon. You're trying to flavor the oil, so cook the bacon slowly.
