When I was a young bride and knew little about cooking, baking or gardening, I was incredibly blessed that my first home was next to the best cook/gardener I've ever known.

Mary had a massive, impressive garden that yielded a bounty of beautiful fruits and vegetables each year. Knowing that I knew little about cooking, Mary would lovingly place a brown paper bag from her garden on my porch with a simple recipe stapled to the side.

This recipe was attached to a beautiful bag of carrots, and I've been making it ever since.
