Through my blog, my readers (you!) and a part of my hubby’s family, I have a very strong connection to the US and Thanksgiving gets me pretty excited! Since the vast majority of my readers are American, I love to create recipes made with this special occasion in mind. And honestly? Thanksgiving food is just too good to be ignored, American or not!

Who wouldn’t like easy roasted veggies with sweet cranberries and toasted pecans?! I love how the veggies caramelize deliciously thanks to the balsamic vinegar and the maple syrup, bringing out amazing flavors. So yummy and so easy to make, too!

I hope you’ll enjoy this recipe, for Thanksgiving or not 😉
