Roasting is hands-down one of my favorite ways to prepare vegetables -- and now, fruits! Delicious fresh fruit takes on a whole new persona when roasted until caramelized, tender and to-die-for. Perfect over ice cream, Greek yogurt or ricotta, these simple and healthy dessert and breakfast ideas are perfect for you and yours as the air gets crisp and the temperature begins to drop.
