Easter is this weekend. A time when families get together and enjoy some fantastic and delicious food. YES. Food is all I think about. Seriously.
I was talking with my mother when we discussed the preparation of Easter meals and we got down to traditions. Glazed carrots and roasted potatoes were both always on the menu when it came to any major family holiday meal. These dishes were prepared in the same way every time and passed down from mother to daughter for at least four generations. Today I am going to share with you a new take on the classic Roasted Carrots, and tell you the secret (as per my mother's mother) to the perfect Roasted Potato.
Glazed carrots used to be, butter, brown sugar, throw the carrots in a pot. BAM. But my way frees up some much (sometimes) needed space in the oven for other things. Brown Sugar & Ginger Roasted Carrots was just a natural flavor progression that I have made with regards to the original recipe. This will pair well if you're doing pork, or an Asian themed dinner as well.
