Over the past several months, roasted vegetables have become just about my favorite thing. 

I’ve been roasting just about everything, from fresh Brussels sprouts and asparagus to even using a frozen broccoli, cauliflower, and carrot blend. The fresh veggies always taste just a little bit better, but the frozen ones work almost just as well.

This week I tried something new – Zucchini and Squash!

Hope you like them!

Easiest Recipe Ever – Spaghetti Squash

squash1This is by far the easiest recipe I have posted to this point, and could possibly be the easiest one I ever do post. Last week was the first time I ever cooked spaghetti squash. I guess I always figured it would be too hard, so I just never tried. Well, I’m glad I did. I love this stuff! The first time I made it, I served it with my homemade marinara sauce and turkey meatballs(more…)
