Frozen vegetables make for a fast and fabulous side dish in Charlene's Cinnamon Carrots. "When Anna was a little girl, the only vegetable she would eat was carrots covered in a packaged glaze," she recalls. "I ran out of glaze one day and created this taste-tempting recipe. I never bought a prepared glaze again."

"Excellent! I used half the recommended amount of honey, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1 tbsp butter. The dinner guests raved."

"Yummy but I'll use less cinnamon next time. I also used fresh carrots instead of frozen ... makes a big difference and doesn't save a whole whack of time."

"Wasn't impressed. Just don't think cinnamon compliments carrots as well as other spices/seasonings. Ok for a one-time dish, but won't make this recipe a regular."
