    I like it! I cooked the Brussels a little longer, and used fresh cranberries instead of dried (it’s what i had leftover after Thanksgiving.) I doubled the amount of maple syrup- and next time I’ll probably use half the amount of balsamic. I also used leftover quinoa instead of barley and fresh Parmesan instead of Gorgonzola
