Maple Glazed Carrots Recipe

Maple Glazed Carrots

This is my favorite time of year. Today is the first day of fall (and it’s also my daugther’s 7th birthday!) I love everything about fall, including the yummy smells, anything and everything pumpkin, football season, cooler temps, and delicious food. This is the time of year where I actually cook more. There’s something about the fall season that motivates me to get into the kitchen more and cook up delicious dinners for my family.

I was born and raised in the country and I’m still a country girl at heart. Every now and then, I crave a good ol’ southern style dinner. This includes chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, glazed carrots, green beans, hot rolls, and sweet tea — and I want all of that. The other night, I cooked our family a southern style dinner that included all of the above and it was delicious. These Maple Glazed Carrots were included and I thought I’d share this easy recipe with you here. These maple glazed carrots are super easy for busy moms to make and perfect for the kids to eat, too!
