  • Carrots, carrots and more carrots

    Let’s eat some carrots! I’ve always liked them, and my kids do too. My mom fixed carrots all the time when I was growing up, plus she always had carrot sticks in the fridge for munching.
    She had a dog when I was little, a big fat dachshund named Herman. He was always on a diet, and he liked carrots, so lots of those carrot sticks went to him.
    These two carrot side dishes I got from Mom’s recipe box. They are very simple to make, and very delicious. And for dessert? What else? Carrot cake!
