Flash Back Friday: Ginger Carrot Slices

I am going to start a new weekly post: Flash Back Friday. It seems I have a lot of new followers (thanks to my Twitter and Facebook) and I am so excited about that!! I want to make sure my newest readers get to see some of my favorite recipes from the past.

Today's Flash Back: Ginger Carrot Slices.

As you'll see from the post I got this recipe from a South African cookbook I borrowed from my dear friend, who has since returned to South Africa. I made these slices for my in-laws and friends of theirs that were visiting from France. I served them with an assortment of tea and coffee after an evening of wine tasting at the Williamsburg Winery. They are easy to make, not overly sweet, and not heavy like most desserts can be. I am going to be making these again soon!

On a side note: apparently I missed my 1 year Blog Anniversary-oops! (With 3 kids and a husband to keep track of, things like when I started blogging tend to pass by unnoticed.) According to my blog list, my very first post was on October 5th, 2010. I can't believe I have already been at this for one full year! In that time I have gotten to connect with some awesome Dairy Free Bloggers. In another post coming up soon I will list other Dairy Free resources and share which ones I follow most often. But, I do owe a HUGE Thank You to Dairy Free Betty- she has been so very helpful and supportive of my little blog and I am very grateful to her for that!

Until next time: Happy Cooking!

  2. Alisa- Thank you!! This one was posted a long time ago and I have since stopped using butter completely. I am sure you could sub a DF margarine too. And yup- no sugar!:-) They really are so good. Hope you enjoy them!
