Carrots, sweet on their own
We had such a chubby basket of carrots! All trimmed, washed and shredded, they suggested muffins or maybe one of those yummy cakes. No, ma’am, so sweet all on their own, they demanded we take another path altogether. We were afraid this was pulling in too many different directions, but it was all quite grand. Sometimes, just standing at the counter and snagging things from the pantry and fridge can result in something joyful. We give you measurements here, but you can bet we just pulled it off on the fly.
