Smoked Sausage and Roasted Vegetables 2
Hi! Remember me?

I know I have fallen off the grid a little bit. I’m still hanging around on social media (so follow me on Instagram and Facebook if you want proof that I’m still alive!), but I’ve been working (a lot) and the wedding is one month from today so…things might continue to be a bit sporadic around here until after the wedding craziness dies down.

But in the meantime, I’ll give you a few life updates:

Some of my sweet friends recently threw me a pre-wedding brunch. I’m not a fan of showers (I hate games and small talk) so I’ve been refusing to call it one, but I would happily take this little gathering with this group of girls any day. Also: Wedding brunch = Best excuse to eat all the carbs.

I had my wedding dress fitting a couple of weeks ago. No, you don’t get any sneak peeks of the dress – that would be cheating! So instead I will just show you my best friend’s chubby-cheeked baby – he is my favorite little buddy. I think he could probably stand in as best man, what do you think? I’m sure Alex’s brother won’t mind.

In related news, this little nugget’s momma is officiating our ceremony and, let me tell you, interpreting Illinois marriage laws to make sure she has completed all of the necessary paperwork to do so has been an interesting adventure. Someone just promise me Alex and I will be married at the end of April 18th, ok? ‘Kthanks.

In non wedding-related news, Instagram followers will recognize this beautiful water-inspired silk scarf from the World Vision Gift Catalog that I’ve been wearing in anticipation of World Water Day this Sunday (March 22). Right now World Vision is conducting a Water Now social media campaign to bring awareness to the astounding need for clean water around the world leading up to World Water Day.  The need for clean water worldwide is great – an estimated 3.5 billion people around the world do not have access to enough safe drinking water – and it is so easy to bring awareness and add your voice. Head over to the Water Now webpage to see who is speaking out and to learn how to add your voice.

And, finally – in case you think I might have forgotten how to bake – I haven’t! I’ve been enjoying playing with recipes from Dessert for Two’s cookbook lately. I promise that the recipe in the photo above is coming soon (with “soon” being a relative term these days) – but for now, suffice it to say that I am obsessed with Christina’s first book and suggest you hightail it over to Amazon and pick yourself up a copy, too.

And now, a recipe! Glory be! This one-pan wonder is one of our go-to dinners these days. It is quick and easy, filling and good for you. To make it even quicker, cut and season everything ahead of time, and pop it in the oven when you are ready for dinner. You’re just 30 minutes away from a satisfying dinner.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 pound smoked sausage pork, turkey or beef - your choice
  • 2 bell peppers
  • 1 sweet potato peeled
  • 1/3 to 1/2 head of cauliflower
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Cut sausage and vegetables into relatively uniformly-sized pieces - about 1/2 to 1 inch. Cut harder vegetables such as potatoes and cauliflower into slightly smaller pieces, and faster-cooking vegetables into larger pieces - the goal is to have everything done at around the same time.
  • Place all vegetables and the sausage into a large zip-top bag or a large bowl and toss with the olive oil, salt, pepper and spices to coat. Spread evenly onto the prepared baking sheet and roast for 30-40 minutes, stirring halfway through, until vegetables are cooked and sausage is browned. Serve topped with fresh parmesan cheese, if desired.

*World Vision provided the lovely scarf, but I received no payment for promoting World Water Day and all opinions are 100% my own. 


  1. Making this on Monday. It’s perfect for us. And, Owen is still a little short for Erin. You know she wants someone a little bit taller.

  2. Whew! Busy girl! Owens getting so big! Dude as long as you get the marriage license you’re good. Plus if Joey on Friends can get “ordained” it can’t be that hard. 😉 you better believe I’m making this next week! All about one pan suppers. They kick the butt of one pot meals any day!

  3. You are SO beautiful. And I am so super excited about your pending wedding… AAAAAAH! I feel you on the bridal shower thing. I refused to have one myself, so a few of my besties just took me to wine country for a leisurely lunch and a glass of red. It was beautiful, casual, delicious… all of the good things. Your gathering looked so relaxed.
    All the best with the last bits of planning. And this gorgeous smoked sausage dish? YUM. Love xxx
