Sweet Lemony Carrots

DD2 likes to cook. Usually she is the sous chef to DD's head chef. She saw a recipe for Sweet Lemon Carrots in the Kids Post section of the Washington Post and wanted to make it. The recipe called for baby carrots. I did not have any at home and I was not ready to run to the grocery store. DD2 is not one to give up if she has put her mind to it so she settled on regular carrots and with the help of DD cut them into small strips to be used in the recipe.

The end result was a surprisingly good. Not bad at all for a first attempt at cooking. She took pictures and asked me to post it on the blog. Hope all of you enjoy this tasty recipe with hints of sweet and sour taste.
