#FrostyVoxBox Reveal

I got my Frosty Vox Box from Influenster.  I love getting boxes from Influenster.  It is always a pleasant surprise to see what’s in the boxes.  Influenster sends me a free box of goodies for my honest opinion.

The only thing I have used so far is the McCormick Thyme.

I use thyme in a lot of recipes like chicken noodle soup.  I also use it when I make Princess Ivi her Thyme-Roasted Carrots.  The original recipe came from Epicurious.com.  I use the original recipe except I cut the butter in half because I find that with the olive oil and the butter, it is a bit too much. 

Recipe:

ingredients

  • 2 pounds medium carrots, peeled, cut on deep diagonal into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter

preparation

Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss carrots, oil, and thyme in large bowl. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Spread carrots in single layer on large rimmed baking sheet; dot with butter. Roast until carrots are tender and brown, stirring occasionally, about 40 minutes

I am a big fan of McCormick spices.  I really like the thyme.  It has a rich flavor and smells very fresh.  It really enhances the flavors of the food too.

I am very pleased with my #FrostyVoxBox and I can’t wait to play with the rest of my box items.
