These carrots are amazing! Roast in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes with some seasoning and a little olive oil. Then drizzle with about 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 3 tablespoons of honey, and about 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar. Pop them back into the oven for about 5 more minutes to achieve sweet, salty, still slightly cruchy perfection!
Boil potatoes for about 20 min until fork tender. Drain. Coat a rimmed cookie sheet well with olive oil. Place potatoes on cookie sheet and press with the bottom of a glass. Drizzle with more oil and salt and pepper to taste. Bake at 425 for 20- 30 minutes until slightly golden. Maybe add some onion powder, shredded cheddar cheese, and bacon bits to the top..
