I've been roasting broccoli and cauliflower for years and it's always a winner. Put a little brown on vegetables and they really shine. But I'm always on the hunt for a twist and came across a few recipes that drizzle roasted vegetables with a tahini dressing after they come out of the oven. Tahini is a middle eastern sesame seed paste that frequently co-stars with chickpeas in the blockbuster known as hummus.

And thus begins the bleaker side of winter. Yeah, it's cold. Yeah, it's dark. Yeah, my feet are freezing...all the time except when I'm in a hot bath. But it's not so bad. We burrow in, watch TV, read, chase the dog around the house to wear him out, wear layers of homey comfort and "forget" to shave our legs (fur = warmth). And of course cook, bake, eat and repeat.
