Easy Roasted Carrots

Easy Roasted Carrots



I save time on these Easy Roasted Carrots by eliminating the peeling and slicing steps.  Baby-cut carrots are ready to go, and because they are all uniform in size, I think they look prettier, too.

These carrots are particularly good with the fresh dill, but they look prettier with the flat-leaf parsley, which is why I used it for the photographs.  I suggest trying them first with the dill.  Enjoy!

Fiesta Frijoles

Fiesta Frijoles



I serve Mexican food at my house quite often—tacos, enchiladas, Chile Rellenos Casserole, and sometimes burritos.  My husband even requested Mexican food for Thanksgiving last year because he’s not a big fan of turkey.  It didn’t go over well with our youngest daughter when she arrived at our house expecting a traditional turkey dinner, and I think I have to agree with her.  I mean, seriously. . . what’s more American than Thanksgiving?  We can have Mexican food anytime.

But when I do serve Mexican, I like to include a side dish, and most of the time it’s my Spanish Rice because it’s quick and delicious.  However, sometimes I like to switch it out with some beans, either my Slow-Cooker Refried Beans or these Fiesta Frijoles which are also made in a crock pot.  Both make an excellent accompaniment to all things Mexican.

My Brother Brussels

My Brother Brussels



Are you familiar with the Food Network star, Guy Fieri?  He is probably most well-known for his show Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives where he travels the country, stopping at small eateries that are frequented by the locals because of the fabulous comfort foods they serve.

But Guy has a few other shows where he does the cooking himself.  I saw him make these Brussels sprouts on his show called Guy’s Big Bite, and I thought they looked really good, so I decided to give them a try.  They are delicious.  I mean they have a half a pound of bacon in them!  And onions and Parmesan cheese, too!  Enough said!  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
