Preheat oven to 375. Rinse brussels sprouts and pat dry. If there are any that are significantly larger than the rest, cut them in half. Also remove any woody stems. Put them in a bowl, and coat them with oil, salt and pepper, stirring to get all sides. Spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Roast for about 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.
I also sometimes season these with lemon pepper before cooking, instead of the black pepper.
A hundred years from now it is very likely that [of Twain's works] "The
Jumping Frog" alone will be remembered.
-- Harry Thurston Peck (Editor of "The Bookman"), January 1901.
