I was reading "Little Women" the other day where the family maid, Hannah, was preparing a cake recipe made from really obsolete ingredients. Afterwards, there was a scene where the four sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy were all tending their respective plots in their tiny garden of their small rented house. My train of thought switched over to my own garden in Castleville (a Zynga game) and I remembered the withered plants I had forgotten to harvest. Most of them were carrots, which are truly worth their weight in gold in terms of health and nutrition. So then, you guessed it, I had this craving for a carrot cake recipe. I am not enamored with carrots, I must admit, but I've always been curious about them. And you know what, this carrot cake actually turned out to be fantastic!
