Wash and scrape your carrots, top and bottom them :) and cut em up like your making carrot sticks! Put enough oil in your cassarole dish to coat your carrot sticks. Drizzle honey to taste over the carrots and then your soy as well, toss them around in the sticky mixture :) then sprinkle your garlic powder over the top to taste as well as your pepper. Place in your oven i usually have mine in at around 390ish every now and then im using tongs and tossin them about to keep em coated cuz you want them to get a lil crunchy as well! If you find you have to much liquid please spoon it out other wise you will end up with soggy carrots! Its up to you how long you cook them :) my boys like them cooked till they are almost crispy!

The BEST dang Mashed Potato's You've EVER had!

(i dont do measurements remember!)


~What you'll need!~

Red Skin Potato's

Cloves of Fresh Garlic

Low Sodium Chicken Broth

Fat Free Cream Cheese

Low Cal Heavy Whipping Cream

Sea Salt and Fresh Ground Black Pepper

~How to throw it together~

Leave the skin on your potatos wash em up good and then cut them into about 1/2 inch chunks throw them into a nice size pot (depending on how many your going to be making i guess!) Add your chunks of garlic cloves to the pot as well. Take our low sodium chicken broth and add it to the pot add enough till the broth JUST covers your chunks! Bring your pot to boiling point, keep them boiling for about 10-15mins, stir your taters and garlic (the smell that comes from this is amazing!) Then turn your heat down to medium, you want the broth to cook down some other wise you will have RUNNY mashed potatos! Stir your occassionally cook for another 10 mins. Turn your heat down to simmer and let it sit there for a few mins simmering you want almost all of the broth to be absorbed but not all of it. When the potatos are tender add your cream cheese not to much though you dont want it to over power the other flavours! Begin mashing your potatos and cream cheese add a lil of the whippin cream just enough to help combine everything! Add your salt and pepper in between mashing!

Your family will LOVE these potatos!!
