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)

Fathers Day came and went with G having to work away for the day and me being busy with the boys at my parents. So I didn't get the chance to say what a brilliant, supportive and kind Father and husband G is.
