    Never thought to make carrots this way - definitely enjoyed by the children and couldn't get much easier! I didn't have any fresh rosemary so I left it out. I also used Rita's "crazy salt" (Recipe #191455) which was nice. I found they were cooked at about 15 minutes and the thinner pieces were starting to burn...so watch those last 5 minutes. Thanks Little!

    It's just great! I did it a few times now - with rosemary, with thyme, with rosemary and thyme, with basil, with olive oil, with toasted sesame oil, with peanut oil and so on and so on I can't imagine why I didn't think about it before :P

    Wow - amazing carrots. Cutting them like fries makes a huge difference. These were like an awesome gourmet french fry. I could eat a lot of these, LOL. Oh, I left out the sugar and subbed fresh thyme for the rosemary. Added a bit of onion powder. Loved them, thanks for the recipe.

    These little carrot sticks were tasty and grow on you as you eat them. I made 2 simple changes using pecan oil and thyme. The flavor is lovely. If you never tried dill with carrots, it's delish and should work well in this recipe, too. I enjoyed the smaller sticks that began caramelizing the last few minutes. Will make again and again, I'm sure. Thanks for sharing.

    What a wonderful way to prepare carrots. We all really enjoyed this dish. I was a little skeptical that the carrots would be tender enough after only 20 minutes of baking time, but it worked out quite well. Thank for you for sharing your recipe, littlemafia. Made for the "Best of 2011" tag game.

I come from the land of Dracula and I have two little daughters; they're three years apart.I travelled a lot and I lived in Hungary,Croatia,Canada,Thailand,Japan and Iran(DH is from here). I've seen a lot of wonderful places, the travel bug is still in me but waiting for DDs to grow a little so we can go together. Lots of wonderful memories and hoping to add some more,but my travelling style has to be adjusted now.No more backpacking! I feel old,suddenly. My girls are everything for me and I'm lucky that I'm able to be at home with them.My life really changed since having them. I like eating healthy,DH works out a lot and taught me about the right foods.Right now I'm trying to lose a few kg,but I'm happy if I lose one kg/month. Never needed a drastic diet,I drink a lot of water and luckylly there's no McDonalds here(yet) to eat junk food. I prefer homemade cooking to restaurants, these days we can make a better tasting meal at home. I like knowing what goes in my food and what hands are cooking it. I always look at a chef's hands and believe me I've seen dirty fingers too! I came to the Zaar to look for a pancake recipe and now my refrigerator is full with jars of homemade stuff. I made a lot of friends and I enjoy playing in the tag games since receiving a premium membership gift from Sydney Mike. Thank you, Syd. I want to thank everyone who makes my recipes and takes the time to take photos. Sometimes I loose track and I can't get back to thank each person making a recipe. I don't mind if someone doesn't stick to the recipe,everyone's taste and needs are different,sometimes ingredients are hard to find and I know this better than most. Please feel free to experiment and hope we'll learn something new from your feedback. <a href="http://www3.clustrmaps.com/counter/maps.php?url=http://recipezaar.com/member/678366" id="clustrMapsLink"><img src="http://www3.clustrmaps.com/counter/index2.php?url=http://recipezaar.com/member/678366" style="border:0px;" alt="Locations of visitors to this page" title="Locations of visitors to this page" id="clustrMapsImg" onerror="this.onerror=null; this.src='http://www2.clustrmaps.com/images/clustrmaps-back-soon.jpg'; document.getElementById('clustrMapsLink').href='http://www2.clustrmaps.com';" /> </a> These are the tag games that I took part in: <img src= "http://i610.photobucket.com/albums/tt181/alligirl65/thesnowmorning-3-1-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/holidaybadge.gif" border="0" alt="Photobucket"X><img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Recipezaar%20Album/iplaytagin.jpg"> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Banners/holidayprmr.jpg"> <img src="http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z230/Lainey6605/gimme-5-sm1.jpg" border="0" alt="Gimme 5 personal banner"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"><img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg"> <img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg"><img src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/Copyoftag300-banner.jpg" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegn%20swap/vegnswap.jpg> <img src="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/my3chefs2009final-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Banners/ST_AMBADGE.jpg"><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/snow-queens-sm.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/pt-shutterbug-banner-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/ZaarStar-AMBanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/picKIsYtv-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/ThymeSticker.jpg"><img src="http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/Herb1BaySTKR.jpg"> <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/pot-luck-sm.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/Masked-reveller-at-Carniv-0.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b367/chefpaulag/vegetabel_soup_banner-1-1.jpg?t=1263826088> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/pic607Ocg-2.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BANNERS/TeaSuppers-STKR.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BANNERS/PhotoswapSTKR.jpg">
