Cheesy Carrot Casserole
I’ve taken this dish to many holiday family reunions over the years, and it’s always a hit, even with youngsters and those who claim they don’t like carrots. In fact, it’s often mistaken for mac ‘n cheese.
1 lb. bag of carrots, cleaned, skinned, and sliced
½ lb. (small box) of Velveeta cheese
1 stick butter
1 sleeve of Ritz cracker crumbs, crumbled
Cook carrots in boiling water until just tender. Drain and spoon into a large, buttered casserole dish. Melt cheese and butter together in microwave. Pour over carrots. Sprinkle with Ritz cracker crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees until bubbly and lightly browned. Serve hot.
About Kathy: Kathy Harris is an author by way of a “divine detour” into the Nashville entertainment business.

For several years, Kathy freelanced entertainer biographies and wrote (as well as ghost wrote) news stories and columns for various music publications. In 2007, she sold her first Christian non-fiction story, “Walk on Water,” which was included in Thomas Nelson’s All My Bad Habits I Learned from Grandpa. That fall, one of her devotions was included in The One Year Life Verse Devotional, published by Tyndale House. Kathy’s writing is also included in Chicken Soup for the Soul Thanks, Mom. Her debut novel, The Road to Mercy, releases in September 2012 from Abingdon Press.

About the book – The Road to Mercy:
Tragedy, love, and secrets meet on a journey of faith.
Dr. Ben Abrams, rescued as an infant from a fiery crash that killed his family, turned his adversities into success but lost his heritage of faith. Fifty years later, Josh and Bethany Harrison face a difficult decision that also tests their faith. A rupture in Beth’s carotid artery leaves her on the brink of death, even as she’s pregnant with their first child. While Dr. Abrams urges her to abort the baby to save her own life, she and Josh step out on faith and continue the pregnancy.
During the next few months, Josh, a contemporary Christian singer, struggles with his faith while Beth hides a secret that may destroy their marriage. She also discovers a decades-old connection to Dr. Abrams that could change his life forever.
