Another wonderful recipe from Reneeyemma.com. I just had to post this scrumptious side dish for you all. If you saw my gratitude post that I just posted, these lovely carrots may look familiar. This past week I received my email from Peggy’s Kitchen, which is from Mothering Magazine, a magazine I just love and subscribe to, for Maple Carrots and Cashews. It caught my eye and it looked like a wonderful side dish to add to my fall recipes.
When I made it, I tweaked it just a tad. I didn’t use cashews because of Camille, but I could have added them after. Also, the recipe calls for maple syrup, but in the description, it say’s honey. I still used maple syrup, but I imagine honey would be just as good, too! I think it’s just a typo.
I really think you’ll love this dish. We all did over here!

3. Slice carrots on a diagonal, or they way you prefer.
4. Place pan on high heat.
