Maple Glazed Carrots

If you are looking for the perfect side to accompany your holiday dinner, look no further.  I was so excited when I stumbled across this recipe on the Little Dairy On The Prairie. These carrots will fool even the pickiest of eaters. In fact when I made these a few weeks ago, my older sister who said she hated cooked carrots loved them after only one bite. With only 5 ingredients and less than 30 minutes needed to create this scrumptious side dish, you really can’t go wrong.  So relax, your vegetable side dish for your Christmas dinner is covered. Now, go and enjoy the rest of your holiday season.

Until next time,
