Honey butter carrots

Years ago, when we lived in NH, there was a wonderful little Hungarian restaurant that we visited from time to time. For us, it was a trip down memory lane. In the fall of 1999, Doug and I did a study abroad semester in Budapest. It's a gorgeous city. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Anyway, this restaurant in Manchester had the most delicious carrots. They were soft, but not mushy, and drenched in butter. I think I got them every time I ate there. I had to have something to balance out the pastries and cake that filled the two cases at the front of the restaurant!

I've made carrots a couple of times, but have never been pleased with the results. So, I stopped cooking them and kept eating them raw. But, winging a simple dinner of baked chicken the other night, I decided to give carrots a try again because we didn't have enough salad left for everyone.

I am so glad I tried again. These carrots were so tasty. They are buttery with a light, sweet flavor. This is also an easy side dish to throw together. Preparation is minimal and you don't need any special ingredients!
