Recipe: Rip Roarin’ Roasted Veggies

These recipes are the concoctions of (fictitious) cartoon comic chef extraordinaire, Sherri’s neighbor and cooking mentor, Chef Chumley.  Chef and Sherri are happy to bring them to you on Wednesdays and Fridays.


Can’t get your loved ones to eat their vegetables?  Well, I hate to boast, but when you roast your veggies with my easy as always recipe, you’ll have to fight them off just to get your fair share!
