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!
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!
