Were it not for my mother reminding me, Easter would have passed me by. Each year, I usually host a small dinner for family and friends but with all this is going on with the pandemic it will be a dinner for two plus our two cats. Sometime late last year, Food and Wine magazine asked me to create a carrot cake for their magazine to celebrate the arrival of spring and Easter. The citrusy aroma of the orange in this carrot cake gives this carrot cake a burst of bright energy while the sour cream glaze gives a much needed tangy edge.
