Orange Glazed Carrots


I've rarely met a kid (or an adult for that matter) that doesn’t like carrots. I couldn't resist buying these adorable miniature stumpy carrots I found at the farmers’ market. You can use any type of carrot you find for this recipe, but I just thought these were so funny looking and had to try them.
Carrots are packed with fiber and beta-carotene which the body converts into vitamin A, necessary for healthy skin and vision. When the carrots are sauted with the sweet orange juice in this recipe, they become coated with a delicious, sweet glaze and no sugar is needed. These
are perfect for a quick and easy holiday dish or any time of the year for that matter.

    Made these for the first time over the weekend - they were so easy and delicious. Thought there would be leftovers, but I was wrong! Definitely a new go-to carrot recipe.

    I've made these twice and they are super yummy! But, I'm obsessing about getting the crystal-ly looking orange glaze… because it seems like it would be even more delicious that way. (I'm a total novice at cooking and I'm sure I'm missing a step or doing something wrong. My carrots just seem to absorb the juice, but the glaze thing isn't happenin). Thank you so much for your help and for having this blog!!!!

    Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email [email protected] and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on [email protected] because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you.
