This is the authentic farm to table eats~roasted caramelized farm veggies!  For me, there’s nothing more romantic and alluring than to serve food in its most natural form~~that means skin on for potatoes, the trimmed green stems of fresh organic carrots, whole garlic cloves or even the entire garlic itself gently peeled but intact and roasted.  I also like to maintain the integrity of the size of the veggies by not chopping and cutting up into small pieces.

There’s a few cuts like with the carrots where I sliced them down the centers (careful, it’s kind of tricky…steady hand!)…this helps with cooking time as well as giving the carrots a prissy flair! And, isn’t that just part of good eats~~food that is styled and charmingly crafted.

Find a skillet that you love~yep, if you don’t have a cast iron one then make that investment~, one that makes you happy when you pull it out of the oven, one that makes the veggies look nestled in and gorgeous~~that’s not hard to do either~~nothing is better than black cast iron~~you can pick these up at yard sales, thrift stores and, yes, you can buy one new, but there’s nothing like getting an old one that’s had decades of seasoning~~oh, if it could talk!  I also picked up this oval shaped copper pan at a thrift store~~I knew when I saw it, it was mine!  And, I knew it would be a fabulously decorative as well as functional cooking and serving piece.  Keep your eyes peeled…you never know when you’ll find that treasure!
