As I was going through my blog the other day, I realized I have not posted a new recipe since last October! I can’t believe that! I’ve been enjoying experimenting with new meal ideas for my family, but for whatever reason, I have failed at posting any. So…I’m adding an additional goal to my list of goals for 2016, to post at least one new recipe a month!

I’m super excited to share this recipe. I love oven-baked sweet potato fries, but who knew carrots could also make great fries!

Here is my family’s new favorite way to eat carrots (Mirella eats 3 portions of these and still ask for more!)…
