I love making roasted vegetables in the autumn and winter months. It’s a great way to bring out the flavor of these hearty root vegetables and keep their texture firm and crisp, compared to boiling them away into mushy blandness. Roasted autumn vegetables are a great choice for a Thanksgiving or other holiday meal as they go well with everything from a stuffed turkey to a leg of lamb – or they can even be a satisfying part of an all-vegetarian feast!

She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
