After tasting this side dish at a restaurant, I created a similar recipe by trial and error in my own kitchen. Since we have six beehives, I like to use honey in many of my recipes. -Jean Dandrea, Burkesville, Kentucky

"I loved this recipe; however, I did change it as I do not like cooked carrots. It takes the nutrients away, so instead I pan fried them in 2 Tablespoons of butter on top of the stove. I watched them carefully so they wouldn't burn. I did finish cooking them in the honey mustard sauce and I did increase the amount as I wanted it saucier."
