Honey Glazed Roasted Root Vegetables

  By Megan Kramer

Whenever I’m invited to a dinner party, I always happily volunteer to bring the dessert.  I love to bake, and I feel confident that I can make something fun and delish-no problem.  If somehow the coveted dessert spot has been taken, my second go to is an appetizer.  It's not quite as fun, but I’m still good with a pre-meal snack.  Last weekend, we went to a dinner party and when I asked what I could bring, I heard the dreaded words, “side dish.”  For some reason, when someone says side dish, my mind goes blank; I have nothing.  They just seem boring to me.  So, I elicited the help of my friends at work (who happen to be amazing cooks) and they suggested roasted root vegetables.  Perfect for the fall, and I feel like it’s something a little bit different.  Turnips, parsnips and butternut squash glazed with honey, okay, I’m in!  They turned out so so good!  Friends actually asked me for the recipe- of a side dish!  They turned out so well, I just might volunteer for a side dish again next time…maybe.
