Honey Roasted Carrots {SRC}

Secret Recipe Club

Can you please it is the end of April already?  This month flew by. I am happy the end of is much warmer and more Spring-like than the beginning of the month.   Not only does the end of the month bring sunshine but also the Secret Recipe Club post.



April's blogger is Dorothy from Shockingly Delicious.  Dorothy is a fabulous cook whose blog is full of great recipes and tips. Although there were many lovely dessert recipes I wanted to check out, I am trying to be healthy right now and eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible.  I almost caved when I saw her recipe for Zucchini Cookie Butter Bundt Cake but remained stead fast with my plan.



Mr. J loves cooked carrots so when I saw her recipe for honeyed carrots I thought it would be a perfect side dish for dinner.  I didn't change a thing. They came out a beautiful color and the honey really brings out the sweetness of the carrots.  We enjoyed them with plain steak from the great and some green beans. 

Thanks Dorothy for a winning recipe!
 
Honey Roasted Carrots

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

    1. Right? I always have them raw. I have made these several times since and enjoyed having another option for a veggie side.

  3. Looks really good. I make mine with maple syrup instead of honey and they're a big family favorite.

  11. I also love her blog! We make carrots a lot at home, so healthy and delicious!
