From what I gather bunnies love carrots. Not any carrots will do….they prefer carrots that are colored like the rainbow. Add some sweet mandarins and I bet the Easter Bunny will be banging down your door with all four paws.

Carrots have a natural sweetness that is fondly brought out when you roast them. Adding mandarins sweetens ’em even more…

  1. I always love seeing these rainbow carrots – haven’t been able to find them around here, but hoping to see them at our farmer’s market this year.

  2. I believe I’ll need the larger plates (the super gigantic 11 inchers, not the 9.5 I mentioned in my Easter round up) for all the wonderful sides I keep seeing and adding to my menu.
    Great looking carrots. Thanks, Marla!
