Roasted “Sweet” Apples

Do you know what I mean by the smell of fall?
That’s exactly what this dish smells like.

It gives you that warm & cozy feeling while it roasts away in the oven. For us Floridians, we need these types of dishes to imagine Autumn’s approach when it is truly 92-degrees and 84% humidity. Now that my mouth is watering and I have my Pumpkin Spiced Latte black coffee in hand (thanks Whole30), let’s get to it.

Perfect Breakfast Addition

I am particularly excited about this recipe because I am always trying to find ways to spice up my breakfast routine– Today I’ll have an omelet with veggies… and for tomorrow, oh! How about an omelet with veggies? I immediately went into fall mode when savoring the aroma of this side dish. It is perfect for breakfast, but I can definitely see this being a quick dessert if you add some coconut milk whipped cream to it! Possibly even a side dish to a dinner with pork as the main event? Just think of the options! Roasty Toasty

I hope you find it heart-warmingly delicious too!
