Ranch Glazed Baby Carrots

I know I have been a bad blogger. It has been over a week since I updated my blog with a new recipe. I guess with having only 2 1/2 weeks left of school that could be the problem. Yes! I have 2 1/2 weeks and then no more classes. I am definitely looking forward to that. Also, I fly to see my hubby in mid-May. Yay! It is definitely going to be a nice summer vacation. I love Colorado when I visited there this last December and I am looking forward to moving there next July when hubby gets back from Afghanistan. I think living in the south all my life (Florida, Louisana and Texas), you just don't get to experience the four seasons and snow! Well atleast I never have and I loved it. Maybe because I only visited and haven't lived there yet. I hope I won't be disappointed. Next July is not coming quick enough.
As for the recipe... this recipe is a nice change from the traditional honey glazed carrots. They have a savory yet sweet taste to them, but I have to say that honey glazed carrots are still my favorite. I made these for a family dinner gathering at my parents and they thought it was delicious. I will definitely make them again for a change of pace.
