There comes a time in every person’s life where they must face seemingly insurmountable obstacles and challenges. Like…”What should we have for lunch?” It’s at these times we can look to the philosophies of (Mad) Science to rise above. What philosophies are these you ask me?
1. Always look to the world (aka “kitchen”) with an open mind
2. Experiment, experiment, experiment
3. Do not be dissuaded if a few abominations happen along the way. Even if your dinner walks out the door and mauls peasants. That’s just part of cooking

A flavorful alternative to glazed carrots that will most likely not turn into a monster and destroy your village/town/city
- Some carrots The more you can have the store do for you the better, peeled and washed baby carrots are great to be lazy with
- 1/3 banana Since bananas come prepackaged by nature you might have some left to eat while cooking
- 2 Tb brown sugar The darker and more molassesy the better
- 2 Tb butter, unsalted You should not eat the leftover butter while cooking
- Some water Just in case you wouldn't have figured this out with the
- Prep time: Figure out how much you want to make. With the amounts above, you'll have 2-3 servings of carrots (about a 1/4 of a 99 cent bag round these parts). Rinse the carrots, just in case there's some mutagenic compound left on them that might muck up the experiment. You can feel free to measure out the rest of that stuff if you want. Or wing it like I do (Hmmm....THIS much)
- Boil some water (enough to drown any carrots that have plans of escape) and then throw the little orange guys in once it's bubbling up nicely. Add six or seven carrots more than you plan to serve since I have no idea how long this takes so I just eat a carrot every time I wanna know if they might be done (hint: easy to chew)
- Drain the remaining water (obviously)
- In either the same pot/pan or a different one (this won't effect the experiment) place the banana in with the carrots and mash it up real good. I do this in the same pan since it saves a dish to clean later.
- Once the banana is mashed, add the butter and heat on medium(ish) until the butter and banana start looking more like a sauce than lumpy bananas covered in butter taking up room in my carrot pan
- Add the brown sugar and stir until dissolved in the sauce. Make sure the carrots have a fairly even coating of banana mush. That's it. That was the end boss. Stop cooking and eat them. Maybe letting them cool is wise.
