Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots, Heart shapped carrots, How FUN would these be for Valentines Day. Veggies and sidesHeart Shaped Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots

You will need:

1 lb of fresh carrots
3 tablespoons butter
4-6 tablespoons brown sugar
salt and pepper

Peel and chop your carrots to desired size. I do smaller bite size for my kids, plus they cook quicker. If you want to see how make HEART SHAPED CARROTS i did post yesterday with how to photos.

Add carrots to a pot, and cover with just enough water to cover the top. Bring to a boil, cover with a lid and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook still fork tender or till water is almost gone. Watch them close so you do not burn them, or run totally out of water. It normally takes mine about 6-9 minutes to cook. Depends on how big they are, and how many I am cooking.

You could also steam them if you want, they just need to be cooked till tender.

Once they are cooked, drain any remaining water from the pot. Add butter and brown sugar, turn heat back on to medium.

Stir till butter and brown sugar dissolve. It will start to thicken with heat, and create a glaze ( take 2-3 min is all) Salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy!Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots, Heart shapped carrots, How FUN would these be for Valentines Day. Veggies and sides

Healthy Spring Recipes ~ TULIP TOMATOES

Do you need something pretty for  Mothers Day Brunch, or a Garden Party?  These beautiful tulip tomatoes serve as both a eye catching table decor and a yummy veggie tray at the same time.  I love the colors and how fresh and healthy they look, almost to pretty to eat. To make a mixed bouquet you could use some yellow grape tomatoes too. These look great on a white serving tray.

Yields: 15 tulips, Ready in 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 15 Large Cherry Tomatoes
  • 16 stalks of chives
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

1. With stem side down, cut a cross in the top of each cherry tomato (about 3?4 down the tomato).

2. Using a spoon (grapefruit spoon works very well) to gently scrape out the tomato seeds.

3. Take a grilling skewer or toothpick and make a hole where the stem currently is. You may need to twist the skewer in a circle a few times to make room for the chive to fit through.

4. Finely chop or grate cucumber.

5. Mix cream cheese, cucumber and basil in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.

6. Add a teaspoon of cream cheese mixture into each tomato tulip (adjust depending on size of tomatoes).

7. Insert a chive into the hole at the bottom of each tomato.

8. Use a damp paper towel to clean any excess cream cheese filling from outside of tomatoes.

9. Prepare the tulip bouquet on a large plate or platter. Use the extra chive stalk to wrap around the tulip stems to complete the bouquet.

Dill Dip Recipe, Finger Food Party Ideas, Cool and Creamy Dill Dip perfect for family reunions, football parties, summer bbq's or just as a lunch snackCool and Creamy Dill Dip

I love this fast and easy recipe for dill dip. It will be the hit of your party or bbq, it is even good as a spread for sandwiches or burgers.  It is best if made the day before the event so the flavors have lots of time to blend. But can also be made last minute if needed.  Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family does.

You will need:
1 1/2 cup Sour Cream
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp Dill Weed
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Onion powder
1/2 tsp Granulated beef bouillon
Salt and pepper  to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon each)

In a small bowl add the dill weed, garlic powder, onion powder, beef bouillon and salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside. In a medium sized bowl (3 cup bowl) with a lid (the lid helps with easy storage) add mayonnaise and sour cream. Fold together until creamy and smooth. Add in the seasoning mix well. Chill for 1 hour minimum, best if chilled 24 hours. Serve with your favorite Rye Bread, chips, pretzels, bagel chips or veggies. Garnish with a pinch of dill weed just before serving.
