We’ve been eating a ton of these asian quick pickled carrots lately. I made them on a whim when I had an overabundance of carrots, and we started throwing them in quinoa bowls, on top of pork meatballs, in rice-paper wraps, and lately on Korean-style beef tacos.
These asian quick pickled carrots are so easy to make, so whip some up and keep them stocked in the fridge to add a little acidic bite to your next sandwich, or toss them with some sesame seeds and herbs for a nice side-dish salad.

Ahhh, dudes. They can be so hard to shop for. They don’t want anything, but also they really like awesome things. What is awesome to a dude? I have consulted with many and come up with a list of hot stuff to get them in 2017. Check out the prudent gift guide to awesome gifts for guys 2017.
1. My husband wants a Filson Wax Work Vest. I think he will look extremely sexy in it. Win-win.
2. I don’t know about the dudes in your life, but my husband is OBSESSED with light bulbs. And now you can get lightbulbs you can control with your VOICE over google. “Alexa, dim the lights.” Omg, he would love it: Philips Hue White Smart Bulb Starter Kit.
3. Get him a Stanley Classic Flask or if he doesn’t drink, go with the Stanley Classic One Hand Vacuum Mug. Get the Hammertone green. To go in his flask, for whisky appreciators like my husband, this is the one on his list this year. It ain’t cheap, but it will impress even the pickiest of whisky afficianados. Bruichladdich Octomore, which is available at some BevMos, but you can also look for retail locations on their site.
4. I gave my husband a Pendleton Roll Up Blanket a few gift-days ago, and he loves it. It’s waterproof on one side and comes with a leather strap carrier. He keeps it in his car so we are always prepared for picnics or cold nights at the park watching his soccer team.
