      Normally I wouldn't be a big fan of a vegetable recipe, but anything glazed with brown sugar is appealing to my sweet tooth. I'll print this out for the old lady, and maybe she can finally get the kids and I to eat our veggies, which are usually accidentally dropped on the floor for the dog to clean up.
