Recipe: Honey Glazed Carrots

I had a bunch of leftover carrots from Christmas dinner (bought way too many) so I was playing around with a little of this and a little of that and came up with this recipe. Its not bad, sweet, but a nice compliment to something savory.

2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
pinch of salt

Recipe: Peach Crisp

My mother buys a big “crate” (ok, cardboard box now) of peaches every year from Colorado when the season arrives. Well it arrived last week apparently. I am the lucky daughter that gets to mooch off her peaches and not have to buy my own! 😀 As such I had about a dozen peaches and was trying to figure out what to do with them, a couple of eaten ones later I stumbled on this recipe (by M&Mers on RecipeZaar). Its amazing as is. Really. I didn’t do much to it except change the amounts to suit my taste buds and preferences. I like crunch and I like sweet. If using canned or ripe peaches you may want to back down on the honey and/or the sugar as they tend to be sweeter than not quite ripe fresh ones.

And since I do like more crunch and less peach when eating, I opted for the flatter baking dish…and it made more than enough “crunch” for the top for me. If you choose to use a smaller baking pan you might want to cut the recipe in half for just the right amount of topping.
