Oven-roasted carrots, oven-charred carrots, stovetop-glazed carrots and more! 5  fabulous carrot recipes that transform this plain Jane veggie into side dishes fit for royalty!

We love carrots and I throw a bag in my cart almost every time I shop. We enjoy them in soups, salads, side dishes and (of course!) cakes. Carrots are fairly bland on their own but throw them in a hot oven with a few spices, a pat of butter, a sprinkle of fresh herbs and/or a drizzle of olive oil, honey or maple syrup and you got yourself a fabulous feast!

Thought for the day:

 And being found in human form,
He humbled Himself
by becoming obedient to the point of death,
even death on a cross.

Therefore God has highly exalted Him
and bestowed on Him
the name that is above every name,

so that at the name of JESUS every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:8-11

What we’re listening to for inspiration:
