BUT, I already had my share of festive Thanksgiving sides creating this gorgeous sheet pan recipe!

Roasted vegetables with balsamic vinegar and maple syrup. As for veggies, I went with Thanksgiving classics, like carrots and Brussels sprouts!

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 easily roasted veggies with balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, 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 ????

  1. Oh, I am loving this! With a festive side dish like this, the turkey might actually lose its position as the center of attention! Thanksgiving should be all about the sides anyways!
