Family recipes are fantastic, but they don't amount to much unless you continue to make them.  This is my Grandmother's recipe for glazed carrots.  She would make these all the time, but specifically they were always on the table when we celebrated Easter.  They really are the perfect springtime side dish.  This recipe is sooo easy and comes together really quickly.  I hope you enjoy these and find them as irresistible as I do!
