"I'm a 78-year-old who does my own cooking," writes Robert Wahlfeldt. The Danville, Illinois cook shares this colorful microwave side dish ideal for casual meals. It gets its zest from a tart yet sweet citrus glaze.
"THE SWEET TASTE of the glaze not only enhances these carrots, but it is very compatible with the rest of the meal. Another great thing about this vegetable dish is that it adds a nice colorful touch to the table. Whenever Mom fixed this dish I was never disappointed!"
