Are you agnostic or atheist? Regarding the little guys, there are natural (cultivated) baby carrots, and there are cut baby carrots (technically "baby cut carrots"): A California carrot farmer started making baby cut carrots in 1986 because he was unhappy with his carrots going bad, so he got a green-bean cutter which cut his carrots into two lengths, and then placed the lengths inside a potato peeler, creating the original branded baby carrot: "Bunny-Luv." This is amazing - as I'm typing this, the person sitting next to me, who is Googling baby carrots, told me that the Washington Post came out with an article on baby carrots just *three hours ago*. sandynva, I'm wondering if you read this article, and it that's what prompted your original post? If not, there's a weird, telepathic thing going on: "Baby carrots are not baby carrots" by Roberto A. Ferdman on washingtonpost.com <--- I'm being told this is a good article.

From watching Top Chef at least it seems like carrots are a trend or at least becoming quite popular. They seem to be the focus of a lot of dishes, often seared or roasted. I've not been a huge fan of cooked carrots (mostly because they're sweet, and I prefer savory things) but admittedly I've mostly had them in soups and stews (where they were only ok) glazed with sugar (not a fan) or simply roasted (eh). I'm curious to see if I like some of the newer preparations. I was wondering-does anyone have any savory carrot recipes that they think might convert a carrot agnostic? thank you.
The Karat Cakery food truck (@karatcakery) sells carrot cake, carrot cake cupcakes and ice cream with carrot cake. So if you don't like carrot cake, don't bother! If you do, however, the carrot cake cupcake with pecans is really divine. They put the cream cheese frosting on the cupcake right after you order it. The truck was at Farragut North yesterday (Wednesday) although I don't know their schedule.
