Tips from Tori...Pinterest!

Are you looking for that special something to cook tonight? Or that picture to put with a  Bible verse? A craft to do with a group of kids?  A do it yourself project for a rainy day?  How to put a clothing group together, or even how to hang a grouping of pictures....?  Well Pinterest is my new found Hobby, with many of those answers and more at your fingertips.
Let me warn is a little addicting :)!

Today I went looking for a carrot recipe, so I thought I would share....

Honey Glazed Balsamic Carrots

Here is a great quick and brain-dead-easy grilled side dish that can compliment a wide variety of dishes. If you've got the grill fired up, these take mere minutes. How can you really go wrong with carrots, balsamic, and honey?

6 carrots (as equal in size as possible)
1/8 cup Balsamic vinegar
1/8 cup Honey

Combine the balsamic and honey in a small bowl, whisk to combine and set aside.

Peel, trim and slice the carrots in half horizontally.

Put them in a zip-top bag and seal, leaving about an inch unsealed.

Cook the carrots on high in the microwave for two minutes, or until they are slightly flexible. This shortens the grilling time greatly.

Note: You may need to adjust the cooking time depending on the size of your carrots and the power of your microwave.

Grill the carrots on a medium-high grill (about 400*) for three minutes.

Flip them over, brush them with the glaze and continue grilling another three minutes.

Remove the carrots to a platter and brush them with the glaze.

Serve and enjoy.
