Honey Roasted Carrots

Hello, Monday. We meet again…

It’s the 3rd Monday of the Month so it’s time for my monthly Secret Recipe Club post. Yes!

Honey Roasted Carrots-01

It’s crazy how quickly the month goes by from posts to posts. It goes by extra super duper quick when you’re super busy with work travel, deadlines, a sick kid, being sick yourself, and a little someone turning 2. Sob!!!

But here we go again.

I think I picked an awesome recipe this month too!!

It was hard work narrowing down to a few recipes from Sue’s blog, Palateble Pastime. I enjoyed going through years of recipes. She really has a wondeful arsenal of recipes! Her Chile-Bourbon Steak Marinade, Apple Spice Dump Cake, and Sweet Potato Biscuits were a few of the recipes that I stared to consider making.

The Honey Roasted Carrots were an easy choice from me when I picked up a BIG jar of Raw Wildflower Honey from Boston Honey Company when I went to Boston Public Market this past weekend. As soon as I picked it up I knew I had to make the carrots I was toying around with. Yes Yes!

Tender roasted carrots with a kiss of honey. Side dish perfection.

The recipe was so simple and good that I only made 1 change to it. I do enjoy rosemary but I like thyme like 100x more so I used that instead. I’m sure that the carrots would have been awesome with the rosemary that Sue used, but I have to say my thyme infused carrots were da-bomb.

You’ll want to add these to your Thanksgiving dinner. Shoot any dinner will be better with these Honey Roasted Carrots!
