Dear Culinary SOS: On our trip to the Russian River earlier this month, we had a lot of amazing food. The dish we can't get out of our heads is the Brussels sprouts at boon eat + drink in Guerneville. Everyone in town sent us in to the restaurant to try these out, and now we know why. We still can't get over the incredible flavor and texture; they were outrageous. Please help us get the recipe for this. It would be perfect for holiday meals. Rebecca Sommer Pasadena Dear Rebecca: Delicately crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, boon's Brussels sprouts are served warm, tossed in a simple dressing with bright notes of lemon and just a touch of heat from red chile flakes.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new contestant in the who-can-top-this outrageous new fast food item: the bacon milkshake from Jack in the Box. The bacon shake is made with no actual bacon, just real vanilla ice cream, bacon-flavored syrup, whipped topping and a maraschino cherry, according to the website. We were thinking this had to be the most trayf food known to mankind before we saw the ingredient list. We'll get to the nutritional info in a minute. The item is proving to be somewhat polarizing, with some people loving the product (or the idea of it, at least)
