When I was younger, I was a horrible picky eater. My parents had a dreaded one bite rule where I would have to try everything on my plate even if that meant not eating it all. Most vegetables were horrible. They were bitter to me and I couldn’t stand them. However sweet vegetables were the few I would consistently eat. Give me a bag of carrots and I chomp down on those. However put green beans in front of me and I’d rather starve. And while I’m less of a picky eater now, some foods like carrots still remain favorites. I decided to make my roasted carrots a bit fancier recently by making a Maple Glazed Roasted Carrots recipe.
