French Fridays with Dorie – Spiced Butter-Glazed Carrots

Spiced Butter-Glazed Carrots |

It’s the last day of 2010 and I can’t believe how incredibly fast it went. Didn’t we just begin French Fridays with Dorie?? It seems like yesterday that I opened Around My French Table and drooled with every single page turned. It’s been quite a learning experience and I’m so happy with all the new dishes and friends that I’ve made!

This week features Dorie’s Spiced Butter-Glazed Carrots. I was instantly reminded of the carrots Mango used to fix when we’d visit her for dinner. They were one of my favorite dishes and I was excited each time I’d see them on the stove. Dorie’s carrots came very close to Mango’s and they were a great side to our dinner last night (you know, New Year’s Eve-Eve!). Don’t forget to see what the other members chose for this last week of December – click over to the site here!

Those look wonderful – exactly how I pictured them! I made the carrots for New Year’s Eve too…except (shhh) I was short on onions, so I used (gasp!) onion powder. They were very good, but not as attractive as yours! Happy 2011.
