I just have to say that these carrots were unbelievably fun to photograph. Who knew something so simple could be so beautiful? Carrots love the camera.

These are as easy to put together as they are beautiful. Slice, season, drizzle, roast. Done. They make a gorgeous side dish for any spring entree (secret: I snacked on them basically all afternoon).

I never liked cooked carrots as a child but in the last year both my husband and I have gotten into carrots. These are as good as they are beautiful. Thanks.

I just made these for lunch and they were great. I think next time I'll sprinkle a little extra brown sugar on top during part of the roasting time.
