Water City Grill Carrots (My Fav!!)

1 pound sliced carrots
6T Maple Syrup
1 1/2T Butter
Sale & Pepper to Taste

Cook a pound of sliced carrots with about 6 tablespoons of maple syrup and 1 ½ tablespoons of butter with salt and pepper to taste.

When you place the carrots in the saucepan, the syrup initially won't cover them; but once the syrup is brought to a boil over high heat, it will liquefy and provide coverage.

Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook uncovered 15 to 20 minutes until the carrots are tender (or to preferred level of crunchiness).


These are the best cooked carrots I have ever had! When we go out to eat at Water City Grill I always get an extra order of carrots to take home.

~*~ Meet Edi ~*~

Hi, my name is Edi Royer. I live in rural Iowa with my boyfriend, Jesse, and our dog, Harley. For my full-time job, I work in a factory that makes semi transmissions as a machine operator. I am also getting my MBA. In my free time (when I'm not scrapping) I enjoy snowmobiling, mud dragging and having fun with my family and friends. I like to think I'm a mix of feminine and fun :)
How long have you been creating?I started paper crafting about 12 years ago. I started by making hand-stamped greeting cards for family and friends. I then entered into scrap booking about 10 years ago. The company I bought all my stamps from started selling scrap booking supplies and I was instantly hooked!
What is your favorite part of your creating?I love making albums that people will have around for generations to come. I love it that people ask me to preserve their lives for them in meaningful scrapbooks. It is a really special craft. And of course, I love the creative side as well...trying new things and making a mess :)
Where can people go to see your work?I have a shop on Etsy: a blog also do a couple of craft shows every year in the Southwest Iowa area. I will post about them on my blog when they get closer.
Any helpful tips for other artists/crafters?Enjoy the process :) This is my personal scrap booking mantra. I don't ever want it to turn into a job. I do this because I love it and I want to help others with my love of crafting.
