    WWW – Glad you like it. I had three ingredients on the counter the other day: carrots, root ginger and oranges. I wondered would I combine them in a cake or in a soup? I tried both, the soup won. I’ll need to re-gig the cake recipe again, once I buy more root ginger.

    Debra – It is ideal for a dull & cold winter’s day. The colour from the carrots brightens lifts the heart, while the ginger warms the body from the inside.
