Roasted Veggies with a Creamy Garlic Dip

Roasted Veggies with a Creamy Garlic Dip

Roasted veggies are such a great way to add a pop of color to your meal. Such a gorgeous easy dish to make! Somehow whenever I make this dish I am able to to convince at least one of my kids to try a new vegetable. Pair it with a dipping sauce and I can get my children to try anything!  Using coconut oil in cooking is always a healthier option that I love to sneak in there with my baking. I have always loved Barleans products and have tried many of them! I love their fish oil swirls and …

My oldest sons favorite food is baked potatoes! He asks for them multiple times a week!
