  1. Just need to buy carrots! Yum. This looks delicious.
    I fell in love with maple syrup with this recipe,
    LOL, it’s your recipe!!!

    I was shocked I didn’t gain from the maple syrup, so now I use it in coffee — which I have a few times a week. 🙂

    So after reading how good maple syrup is, I’m ready for your carrot recipe!

    Thank you.
