(Although I don't want to endorse the romanticizing of the "so taunt me, and hurt me, deceive me, desert me - I'm yours till I die" mentality of the above song, it's still super beautiful. And listen to Ella's range! Gosh.)

It's come to my attention that not everyone knows how to roast veggies. Roasted veggies are, in my opinion, the most delicious veggies, and are easy to make. The only vegetable I've found to not roast well are greenbeans. Don't go there.
Here is a basic guide to roasting veggies. You can google for specific vegetable types. Once you get some experience roasting, you'll know what speed different vegetables roast at - when roasting a variety of vegetables I try to put them in different pans according to how long they'll take (beets and potatoes together, carrots and broccoli, etc). I like my veggies with a little bit of black on them. My mom says blackened food contains carcinogens, I say bring it - I probably take in more carcinogens walking down a busy street than eating these tasty tasty beets.
