some people keep things from past relationships. sentimental objects you end up holding onto until you move on to someone new. in my case, it wasn't a picture or ticket stub, but this recipe. and since it's from my ex boyfriend's mother and not the ex himself, i think this one can stick around.
it's such an easy process and takes almost no effort.
ok. you'll want to start with a bag of baby carrots, some brown sugar (about 1/4 cup) and a few pats of butter. i like using salted butter here.
heat a pan on medium low and toss everything in: carrots, butter, sugar. it all goes in.
let it bubble away for about 20 minutes, or until the carrots are fork tender.
when they're done, they're gonna look like the second picture there. all warm and buttery and slightly caramelized. they're a crowd pleaser and there's only one pan to wash afterward.

so if you're stuck on what to bring to dinner tomorrow, here you go.
