Carrot Honey Loaf

“As a busy health-care professional and mom, one of the most meaningful gifts I give to the people I love is my time and skills in the kitchen. I have been baking since I was 7 years old and while I still am an avid baker, raising three children, caring for three dogs and working full-time leaves me with little energy! My family appreciates all my efforts and this is a favorite extra “gift” I give people for special events like a housewarming or welcoming a new baby. It is especially good toasted with butter.” —Krystal Horudko, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada
