Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of Pinterest. Even my husband has heard of Pinterest. He found a children’s church craft on there one day and thought that it was just the best thing ever. I use Pinterest mainly for crafts and recipes. If you’re not following me over there, check out my boards. I’d love to have you pinning along with me. And it might just come in handy later on in the post, hint, hint. Some time back, I found this recipe for Honey Glazed Carrots from Happy Hour Projects on Pinterest. However, after asking her on her blog I realized that the carrots would not be soft enough for the boys to eat. So I decided to twist it up a bit!
- 1 pound raw carrots
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1/3 cup honey
- 2 tsp. majoram
Begin by washing and peeling the carrots. Cut the top off, then continue to cut the carrot into medallions that are about 1/4 inch in thickness. Steam the carrots until they are totally soft and tender. A spoon should be able to cut through them.
Transfer the carrots to a large bowl. Add butter, honey, and marjoram. Stir until carrots are coated. Serve.

I am going to have to try this recipe. My daughter loves carrots.
My kids (and hubby) weren’t the biggest fans of raw carrots, but they will eat them all day like this!

My daughter and I had this at a food demo held at our local library. It was excellent and she makes it often.

I found a cute idea for my son’s teacher. I bought a small potted plant and stuck a Target gift card in it.

I will be covering a thrift store bought patio table with vinyl.
What a great twist. Can’t wait to try this week.
I tried (and loved) several recipes for our family reunion that I pinned. Thanks for the giveaway!

I need to make a housewarming basket for friends of ours so I have been searching on Pinterest for inspiration for that project.
I’ve made several recipes, and trying to find a certain tie dye pattern to make (no luck finding yet)

I just pinned a recipe the other day for a chocolate coconut zucchini cake! I have really high hopes because we made zucchini brownies last week and my kids absolutely loved them. So it definitely sounds like something we’ll be trying! And these carrots sound like they’d go perfect with a Thanksgiving meal or as a side dish to a fall crockpot dinner.
That cake sounds delicious!

Thanks for the recipe – easy & healthy! (Also like the pic of the galvanized pipe curtain rod. Going to use that in my son’s room.)
