I am always looking for new ways to prepare vegetables for dinner, especially since I am cooking dinner for my one year old these days.  My goal is to get him to not only try the vegetables but to eat them as well and that has been a little challenging thus far.  This recipe for Skinny Glazed Carrots proved to be a success last night as he enjoyed several as did mama.  This recipe is really simple and it turned out delicious.  I used sugar-free honey for the glaze but feel free to use regular honey and you could add additional butter to the carrots, I just opted to use butter spray to save on calories.  Enjoy!
