Hello all, as a Catholic, today is Ash Wednesday for me... Ash Wednesday begins the Lenten season. It's a season of penance, reflection, & fasting which prepares Catholics for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday, through which Catholics attain redemption. It is also a meat-free day. This Lenten season I am trying, as always, to be a better person & I shall "give up" chocolate. I do not want to tempt anyone today so here's a sweet vegetable side that is a bright spot in the winter season!

Another America's Test Kitchen (ATK) keeper! This is so simple, yet so flavorful.Look at this orange gorgeousness! And it's delicious.

PS- Tomorrow I'll have a great meat-free Lenten Main Dish!  
Sugar-Glazed, Roasted Carrots
from America's Test kitchen
  • 4 lbs carrots, cut in to 2”x1/2” pieces
  • 2 T melted butter, unsalted
  • 2 T Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley (this is an addition to the recipe)
  • S & P
Heat oven to 475 degrees.

Place  a rimmed baking sheet (As you see, I use a Pyrex glass pie pan!) to preheat for 10 minutes. Toss all ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. Be quick and pull out the preheated baking sheet & spread the carrots out & place it back in the oven for 15 min. Then stir up the carrots & put back in to for another 3 min.
