Fall is here and the Holiday season is just around the corner. This is the time of year to start assembling all your favorite recipes and adding a new one here and there.

This roasted cauliflower recipe is a winner in my book. Easy to prepare, less than 30 minutes. It can be made the day before a big gathering, freeing you to enjoy your company. How fantastic is that?

I really enjoy roasting vegetables, and cauliflower is one of my favorites to prepare. Easy to work with, and foolproof,  so many seasonings to play with. An open canvas.

Our local market had beautiful cauliflower assortments and decided to change things a bit, meaning straying from the usual white and this time cook with an orange one. Same flavor, just different color. I guess more festive for me.
