Ranch Glazed Carrots

I swear, Pinterest can be my best friend, or my worst enemy. Just depends on the day. I’m always coming across a recipe here, a recipe there that I know, I just know, has to be dinner tonight. And I’m cooking so I get to make what I want, right? But later, usually while I’m pulling out ingredients, that rational part of my brain starts functioning again, and it reminds me that dinner needs to be more. I actually have to make sides and stuff. Not just the 5-star main dish I had my heart set on. Bummer.

Carrots and ranch area a match made in heaven, so I thought ‘these have to be amazing, right?!’¬†What’s better than having the flavors you love from your favorite dressing in an easy to make side dish that’ll have you wanting to eat your veggies? ¬†These are a perfect summer side, well in our opinion, they’re really good anytime of the year. Just five minutes is all you need to make this savory-sweet glaze for cooked carrots.
