IC - hey carrot cake is a healthy recipe - it's got carrots in it! mmmmmmmm -
I love the carrot-raisin salad that mama posted a recipe for- but per my nephew's love of peanut-butter, I sometimes whisk a little PB into the mayo, too. Any leftovers also make great muffins the next day!
I think maybe tomorrow I will try the carrots with lime. Mama you put this thread up just in time. Yesterday after eating a huge bag of carrots with humus I don't think I can face the other bag of carrots in my fridge. I was looking for ideas.
and this is fo the brave -
Carrot Ice Cream
6 Cups whole milk
4 Cups 2% milk
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. vanilla
2 1/2 Cups sugar
4 Cups cooked mashed carrots
1/2 Cup grated carrot
Beat eggs until light. Blend in sugar gradually. Beat until thickened. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well and freeze.
Or the very best of all FRESH CARROT JUICE!!!! Simply refreshing, sweet, wholesome and oh so GOOD for your eyes
P.S. When juicing fresh carrots drink juice immediately! It is so much better for you, if you do have to store it place into a bottle or jar and vaccum seal with your Food Saver! Juice (well the nutrients in it) deterioriate very rapidly when exsposed to oxygen!
I am SO into the kooky. I've made avocado icecream and it was really good. I really, really want to try a recipe for salted caramel ice cream with candied bacon. I just need another 8 hours a day for all the cooking projects I want to try. I'm sure this would actually be really good. Maybe reminicent of Indian carrot pudding! That's it maybe I will use some of my carrot to try Indian carrot pudding icecream!

I like plain, nekid carrots, peeled, wrapped in foil and baked until tender, about 45 mins. Then take out and cover with melted butter. I don't know why baking them makes them taste soooo much better, but I do two pounds, and there's rarely any left!
I.C. You are so Bad!! Your Carrot Cake recipe sounds Delicious!! Cookie
