Aquafabulous! Roasted Carrot Dip

Aquafabulous! Roasted Carrot Dip

It’s officially fall!

So, yeah. I’m not super happy about that. In my ideal world, summer would last forever.

There is something kinda wonderful about breaking out my favorite cozy scarf again, though.

The beginning of fall means that my kitchen is now actually cool enough for me to cook in again. There were a few weeks, there, when turning on the oven wasn’t really an option.

I shared the first version of this recipe about a year ago. The inspiration came from my friend Leeanne who lives in Maple Ridge. She, in turn, was inspired by her local Haney Farmer’s Market, which is also one of my favorites.

I refined it a little for the cookbook. I’ve made it many times since, always to rave reviews.
