Orange Glazed Carrots
You'll be delighted and amazed how easily your microwave turns a few sliced carrots and some spreadable fruit into a luscious dish that's gorgeous enough to serve at a dinner party! Since carrots are already naturally sweet, this is a great way to highlight that sweetness - and provide a colorful addition to any feast.
