Because Life Happens…Easy Roasted Root Vegetables



Busy, it’s happened. Between, triathlon trainings, yard work, removing popcorn ceiings, and painting the house – there’s little room for some fun. Also, my husband graduated with his Masters. Such a smart cookie, so proud of him!


But for me, it’s my passion for chopping, sautéing, recipe making and blogging about food! I’ve missed being here.

Here’s recipe in execution, is very simple. Chop, bake, and 45 minutes later you have a delicious side dish. Choose your favorite root or dense veggies, as they will not become mushy. Examples: potatoes, winter squash, fennel, onion, radish, turnips and you can pair these with your preferred herbs and spices. Yum! Hope you enjoy…
