  1. This was a nice simple meal that makes you feel positively virtuous eating it! While it is time-consuming chopping all the vegetables, it is certainly very easy to make. I used butternut squash and 12 oz. of chicken sausage. For the mustard, I used Country Dijon, which is nice and coarse. I had to use a large rimmed sheet pan, because it was a lot of ingredients for a baking dish. This was a great idea, and a great use of multiple vegetables. The roasting really enhances their flavor. Thanks for sharing! Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #86.
  2. Paula this is such a simple and healthy meal. I made this at the last minute with what I had on hand. I did not have a pumpkin so just upped the turnip added an extra carrot and 2 stalks celery. Dh kind of looked at me funny when I put it on the table then tasted it and really liked this dish. The flavors are wonderful!!! I love the freshness of the veggies and they were not so mushy, the roasting gave them a sweet taste and the garlic was to die for! I love roasted garlic!! I can see this as a go to meal all summer long. I may have to try this on the grill in foil wrap on those hot days when you really do not want the oven on. Paula as usual another great dish from you. We did not have muffins so each of us had a slice of homemade Italian bread (thin sliced) to sop up juices from the veggies. Made for May 2013 Aussie Swap.


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
