Tips

Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.

This is the best recipe! My husband and I can't stand vegetables so we struggle to find healthy and tasty ways of eating them and more so now since we have a 1 1/2 yr old in the house. These carrots are super easy to make and are not spicy-they just have enough bite and tangy-ness without tasting like boring carrots! If spice is what you're craving then play around with ratios. Excellent recipe and it goes well with pretty much anything-I served them last year with Thanksgiving dinner and my family was very impressed. Read More

another winning veggie recipe I'm on the hunt for tasty veggie recipes to spice up meal time side-dishes and this one definitely hit the mark! Very quick very easy and very delicious. I served them next to the EatingWell twice-baked potatoes but I agree that they would go with just about anything. I left out the cilantro because it tastes like soap and the carrots were just fine without it. This does need to be eaten fresh out of the oven or they get mushy fast and means leftovers are no-good so eat up! Read More
