An elegant (and easy) recipe for delicious carrots!

Standard

There’s a place at the lake that serves delicious spiced carrots, so when I saw this recipe, I went for it.  And, it didn’t disappoint.  Meet my delicious side dish, although I could just chomp them all down and call it good:

carrots

Oops, they look like little smokies, but are Orange Spiced Carrots!

I started with one pound of baby carrots and halved the recipe.  Add orange juice, brown sugar, butter and spices, and you won’t look back.  And, a great way to get the kids to eat veggies, and would be a good holiday dish.  Lastly, I made them in the crockpot so that made it even easier.  Hope you enjoy as much as we did, and thanks for stopping by my site!  Happy Spooky Halloween!
