The hint of maple syrup and brandy elevates these slow-cooker carrots, transforming them into a holiday-worthy side dish. You can easily double this to feed a crowd. We use stem-on rainbow carrots for their beauty, but regular carrots work just as well.

A pretty interesting and impressive blend of savory and sweet. While it has maple syrup it would sit right beside a turkey with no issues especially with enough rosemary on top. Make sure you use a fresh lemon. This has few enough ingredients that you'll know if you have that pre-bottled stuff in there. Read More

I will try this recipe again but will adjust cooking time/temp. Read More
