Since I will be out and about in New Orleans this week, I will feature two side dishes that are a great addition to any meal. The first one uses a product that has been popping up for years, flavored vodka.

4 medium Carrots, slivered

1/3 cup Orange Flavored Vodka

1 teaspoon Sugar

1 teaspoon grated Orange Peel

1/4 cup butter

In a deep, 1 1/2 quart heat-resistant, non-metallic casserole, place slivered carrots and orange vodka. Sprinkle sugar and orange peel over carrots. Dot with butter. Heat, covered, in microwave oven, stirring occasionally, 10 to 12 minutes or until carrots reach desired degree of tenderness.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
