Roasted Yellow Squash and Radishes with Rosemary

When we arrived in Oklahoma, we were greeted with a wonderful overflow of produce in my sister's house. Among the selection were A LOT of radishes and yellow squash. I'm not a huge fan of radishes, and have never really experimented with other ways to eat them besides raw and in a salad.  

But, since they were there, I decided to try roasting them, or they weren't going to get eaten. I love yellow squash, so I threw those in with the radishes.

I drizzled them in olive oil and used a mix of garlic and onion powder, salt, pepper, and rosemary. 

The yellow squash was delicious, but the radishes were just kind of...blah. The peppery taste they normally have when they are raw was gone, but what was left was not really a whole lot of flavor, even with the spices added, so if there's ever a next time with them, now I know they're going to need a lot more help if I'm going to eat them!

Later in the week, we made homemade pizza using our family's recipe!! YUM!!

I completely forgot to take a picture of the end product. (Sorry!) I guess we were all just so hungry we dug right in! ;)

Oh and we can't forget the pizzelles my sister made! My family is Italian, and these were cookies my mother used to make a lot. We decided to break in Emily's new pizzelle iron with a couple batches of regular and chocolate! Mmm

Food question of the day: Do you have any family recipes you love to make?


  1. Yum! Everything looks good, but since I have a big time sweet tooth, the pizzelles look most enticing. ;)
    My mom makes really great enchiladas. I have yet to master them, but once I do, I'm sure that would be a family recipe I'd make over and over. :)

    1. Me too! Probably half of my pins on Pinterest are desserts of some sort. Thank you for reading!

  2. Haha! Yup..when there's a pizza, straight from the oven, right in front of you, it's hard to pause and say "hang on everyone, let me take a picture real quick!"
    I bet it was delish!
    My mom's such an amazing cook! I am blessed. She only knows how to cook Korean cuisine, and I'm fine with that :). Now I try to introduce her to other cuisines by cooking for her. Now that's a change ;)

    1. Haha yep that's exactly how it was! I haven't had a lot of Korean cuisine in the past but I've been wanting to try more of it. Any recommendations for a particular dish I should try?
