I’ve been away from my blog for a while because you know, life happened.
I had a baby girl a few weeks ago, and she is taking up all of my time. You all mamas out there knows what I’m talking about.
I barely have time to eat, and recipe developing is a bit behind. But it’s not like I’ve been consistent with my posts before, and I’m probably not going to post consistently for a while either.
Roasting vegetables is a perfect way to make dinner without having to be in the kitchen the whole time.
This recipe takes about half an hour to prepare. Perfect for when short in time.
I don’t know why I haven´t used the oven more often. What I do know is that from now on, it will be used more frequently and that my oven and I are at the beginning of our love relationship.
Roasting food in an oven can be a lifesaver for busy parents. I know it will be my lifesaver at least.
