I love the holidays. We all know that if the holidays are coming, there’s gonna be food.

Sometimes, we dread the holidays because we might get stuck in the kitchen and miss out on the family time that is happening outside of the kitchen. 

I can remember when we’d gather at my grandmother’s house and she would cook a large meal for all of us. She spent all that time in the kitchen, which she loved, but we all sat in the other room and talked.

Although, her kitchen table was right in the middle of her kitchen, so we’d wad up in there, too–especially if there was something to nibble on.

But, I love recipes that are easy and involve a slow cooker. Slow cookers make me happy. They are so easy, and the food almost always comes out so tender and delicious. And, we get to hang out with family while it does all of the work!

Slow cooker glazed carrots with brown sugar is an easy side dish, which only takes about five minutes to prepare. And, you’ll love how it turns out.

  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Stir the carrots until they are coated. My carrots were still cold, so the butter hardened quickly on the carrots after I poured it on. It will melt again once the Crock Pot gets hot.

This is a recipe for about three to four people. I cooked it in a small 3-quart slow cooker. You can easily double the recipe for about six people, but you will need at least a 5-quart slow cooker.
