Recipes #15 and #16 Orange-Honey Glazed Carrots and Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

Both of these recipes can be found in At Home

In addition to the Parmesan Chicken I made last Saturday, I made two side dishes. Both of which complemented the main course nicely.

The buttermilk mashed potatoes are amazing! As someone who doesn’t get to have mashed potatoes very often, these were a welcome addition the meal. The potatoes were so creamy and flavorful. The salt Ina calls for is a lot, but the potatoes do not taste overly salty. The addition of pepper merges all the flavors and makes for a very tasty side dish.

The Orange-Honey Glazed Carrots are hands down, the BEST carrot recipe I’ve come across!

Using ginger, honey, and orange juice to turn up the volume on these carrots was a great choice for the meal I made. But, it’s also a great recipe crafted by the great IG! In fact, my family loved these carrots so much that we will be making them for our small family gathering at Thanksgiving. I can see them making a regular appearance at the Thanksgiving table year after year.

They are also going to be the first side dish recipe added to my list of Favorites!

As I may have mentioned earlier, I will be taking this week off from cooking dinner. But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to make an IG recipe! I plan to bake this weekend, but not dessert! Probably muffins or scones. Both of those are types of food I haven’t attempted yet. Plus it’ll be a good excuse to tackle one of the Breakfast recipes!

Come back to the blog tomorrow to check out my review of Back to Basics!

Until next time…
