It's no secret I am a bourbon and whiskey girl.  I love to infuse these flavors into my foods as well.  It gives recipes such depth! I whipped up some Bourbon-braised carrots on the patio and they could not have been more delicious! I do have to say that this recipe is a slight departure from the very, ultra-clean recipes that you usually see pop up in the 'Curated Kitchen.' But, hey, that's perfectly fine, because what is it I always say..."everything in moderation." So grab that bourbon and a bunch of carrots and get to cooking.  Let me know what you think of this one!
