One of the most natural things to do when I first started working with Carrot, was to add a few new words to my Google alerts. Although “Carrot” was bound to produce a flood of irrelevant newsfeed, it felt wrong to leave it out and here I am going through the vast range of websites using the word “carrot” in all imaginable contexts. Beyond doubt, there’s some interesting reading, but most of all, there are so many great recipes out there that include carrots!
It goes without saying that it wasn’t my cooking skills that got me a job with Carrot and my first carrotcake turned into a living proof of that. However, the fact that my new job indirectly produced a somewhat eatable carrotcake, still far exceeded my girlfriend’s expectations.
Isn’t it amazing how much stuff you can find out there? Isn’t it even more amazing that some people put in all this work and go through trouble just to share something they like (or don’t like). I no longer have to go out and buy an over-marketed cookbook just to impress on my girlfriend (or myself). Instead, I’m presented with tried and approved recipes right here on my computer. And the best part is that they usually come to me through friends, rather than some smiling guy in a chef’s hat “brought to you by…”
Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks to all of you out there posting recipes that add some spice to my everyday life. I hope you get some sort of reward for what you do!
Here’s the cake I made. Try it out, but stick to the recommended time! There’s more where this one came from, so make sure to check out the rest of this great site.
Does anybody have more carrot recipes or know of a good recipe-site that deserves some attention?
