Dinner

“There is no WE in FOOD.”

 

I have always struggle to keep veggies consistently in my diet. It’s definitely something I’m trying to work on. I can’t eat vegetables plain; that’s just NEVER going to happen. But adding a few simple ingredients can change your veggie experience entirely, and that’s what happened with these roasted carrots. 

Honey, garlic, and butter are things that I try to keep in my pantry/fridge all the time. You can do so much with them! Many of you have seen my obsession with Unsalted Kerrygold Butter here on the blog, and let me just say that I use it at least once every single day…sometimes more. NO SHAME. Their butter is grass-fed which is amazing, but it’s also absolutely delish. You can just tell that it’s the real thing, not that fake and “skinny” stuff. 

I used to hate sweet carrots as a kid, and I’m still not crazy about the kind they serve at restaurants. That being said, I could eat these roasted carrots all the time! They are sooooo yummy and have the best flavor. It’s the perfect sweet/savory combo which I absolutely love. They are the perfect quick side dish to any meal, and will help you get your veggies in without having to choke them down (which I have totally done before with raw veggies…so gross).

Yummy Ingredients I used to make this recipe extra-delish:

I have those nights where I just CRAVE classic comfort food….and yes I’m talking about take-out. Sometimes even I don’t feel like cooking. That’s saying something because I obviously love to cook. Unfortunately where I live, there is definitely not a decent take-out restaurant. I love everything about Chinese food you guys. From the noodles, […]

Who doesn’t love take-out? It’s so yummy, but most, if not all of it is cooked in oils that are super harmful to your body and use terrible ingredients. YUCK. So lucky for you we have healthy alternatives! This is one of my favorite at-home-take-out recipes. It’s sweet, crispy, and a little spicy. The perfect […]
