I spent most of my childhood dreading carrots on the table, a small shred of it in a soup, the gross part of the ever-delicious pot pie that my mom made us, and the list goes on. I was a carrot hater. Well, and a pea hater. I loved brussels sprouts though so that has to be something, right? And, man oh man, did I get a lot of flack for it. See, I was born with terrible eyesight and back in the '80s and the '90s, people were all like “your eyesight would get better if you ate carrots.” I stood my ground, thick glasses and all. Are they good for your eyes? Yes. Can I find other options that weren't carrots that could help? Also, yes.  I was a warrior in my battle.

Then, I grew up and started liking carrots and in my 30s now, I love them. You didn't think I would give you almost sixty carrot recipes and open it with my ode to carrot-hatred, did you? Carrots are great, really. They feel like a treat for me when they are caramelized and all dreamy. Plus, carrot cake is also one of my favorite desserts. I love veggie and fruit-based desserts. Hands down, they are my favorite across the board and seasons. Carrots also go with just about anything and I always serve them during Christmas dinner. I'm making up for my childhood mistakes!

Now, a bit about these carrot recipes below. First off, save this list. There are so many outstanding carrot recipes out there but I truly think we found the best of them. Second, carrots are affordable so most of these recipes are budget-friendly too!

I’m a huge fan of carrot cake. I love it year-round, not just as an Easter dessert. It’s so moist and delicious and I feel better a little better about eating more than one piece because I'm getting my veggies in. It totally counts as a vegetable serving, right?! I have really only eaten carrot cake but after researching carrot cake and carrot dessert recipes, I have some fun new carrot dessert recipes to try! Each of them sounds incredible and I can’t wait to make my way through the list.
