Happy Friday everyone!

I just wanted to share a fun collaboration that I recently did with my favorite food photographer Signe Birck for my friend Megan Gilger's blog The Fresh Exchange. Though Megan's a graphic designer by trade, she shares my love of dinner parties (check out her Simple Evening series) and good, healthy food. When she asked me to contribute a recipe for her "Just 5" series, I was thrilled! The constraints were simple - one recipe, five ingredients.

I found the most beautiful multi-colored carrots at Eataly and was inspired to create a simple roasted carrot dish, with garlic, orange, and thyme. The recipe, I confess, was inspired by a Jamie Oliver dish that a friend recently served at a dinner party. I had never had carrots roasted whole, and I loved not only the presentation, but the way they became infused with all the flavors (garlic, herbs, and citrus) added to the roasting pan.
