CANVA - 5 ways with Carrots for Pinterest

The last time I completed a ‘Five ways with .. ‘ post was a few months ago but it had actually stalled in my drafts folder for over 5 years. Five ways with … a ton of rhubarb was finally completed when a blogging friend accepted my request to include a couple of her recipes. Choclette’s gorgeous blog was one of the first I came across when I started blogging in 2009. At that time it was entirely devoted to chocolate recipes, now I don’t think there’s a fruit or vegetable that hasn’t been experimented with in Choclette’s kitchen. Choclette’s willingness to share her recipes inspired me to approach my next ‘Five ways with ..’ post as a curator of recipes from some of my favourite bloggers and a chance to highlight some interesting ways with carrots you might not have previously considered.  In researching this post I came across more than five ways of course so I’ll include five more ways with carrots at the end.  With thanks to Choclette, Shaheen, Jacqui and Camilla for the inclusion of their recipes (click Twitter links for regular inspiration and recipes).  So here are my For now here are my current favourite recipe ideas for using a ton of carrots.  Happy peeling!

    Hello ,
    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!
    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).
    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂
    Keep up the good work on your blog.
    Regards

    This is a brilliant idea for a post. I often end up with a whole load of carrots sitting at the bottom of my veg rack gradually getting grey and wrinkled. So ideas to use them up is always welcome. In fact, this has inspired me to start a carrot board on Pinterest. This will be the very first pin on it.
    Thank you so much for all the lovely things you’ve said about my blog. Yours has always been high on my list of noteworthy blogs too.

      That’s so lovely to hear, thank you. I’m really enjoying Pinterest now having only used it for bookmarking things I like but never get round to making. I love that it has a “tried” pin now for sharing your recreations. I shall have to do that with your rhubarb ice cream :0)

When your hungry toddlers go too food request is "me want cake Mum" it's good to have a savoury muffin recipe to hand. 2 minutes to whip up and 15 mins to bake. Remains to be seen whether he'll be fooled! Recipe on the blog by searching feta muffin #nipitinthebudblog #sugarfreemuffins #babyfriendly
Grief is rough at the best of times but seeing your child struggle through the pain of loss is a real knife to the heart. A friend has lent us some books to read with E and "The Sad Book" by @michaelrosenyes is going to be the key to papering over some of the cracks in our hearts I think and easing his anxiety about dying.
Beautiful wood block print from our dear friend @elluminations of our boys on a beach in the Isle of Wight at the start of the school holidays. We returned to find my Mum's health deteriorating and she died 3 weeks later. Our world has been turned upside down but when I look at this picture I can feel the peace, hear the lap of the waves and smile at the tenderness of the moment - two #bestfriendbrothers absorbed in their own present moment. Thank you El, this means so much to me (for commission's of your own photos or El's artwork as wood blocks visit her Etsy shop)
E's had a hard time the last few weeks following an incident that triggered a really big stress response for his 6 year old bereaved mind. Today we've made a worry box to help him with his anxiety symptoms and have found the advice on the @youngmindsuk website invaluable. We all need to talk about mental health more especially as it's too easy for grown ups to dismiss a child's misbehaviour without looking for the feelings underlying it. #breakingthestigma #worldmentalhealthday2018
We've had a hard few weeks and this really sums up how asking for help is the light in the dark but not always easy to do. It's #worldmentalhealthday2018 and never has it been more important to make sure our kids know asking for help is a sign of strength and courage not weakness or failure
How to get your kids to eat your home made casserole? Cover it with their favourite #cullyandsullyuk chicken soup. Winner!
I learnt a new word today and if there was an emoji for it then it would be this! PIZZLED, when your pissed off and puzzled all at the same time. Thank you #rubywaxfrazzled for the language education and Euan for the always hilarious faces (he was 4 years old and eating lunch out with his new 2 month old baby brother so his face could be saying all sorts of things!) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I don't suppose many people recall the exact date they found out they were pregnant or have a photo to mark their total delight. 15/8/15 we found out our second miracle Luca was on his way. We'd become second time parents in our 40s and 22 years after we started dating. Our boys were so worth the painful years of waiting. (And our picture to mark the occasion is thanks to Mum and Dad babysitting Euan so we could go to a friend's wedding evening do.)

It's so hard to grieve the loss of your Mum when just looking in the mirror each morning reminds you of what you're missing. Dad always said "thankfully you get your looks from your Mum" with a cheeky twinkle in his eye.
