Sunday Dinner: Corned Beef and Carrots

While some of you believe corned beef tastes like dog food, I happen to love this St. Patrick's Day staple. Slathered in an orange marmalade and whiskey glaze, this is the perfect Sunday night dinner. Don't be intimidated because this recipe calls for fully cooked corned beef. You cook it like you would a baked ham.

For the sweet carrots on the side use real carrots. Packaged baby carrots won't have such a fresh flavor. To make this for your family tonight,

I love corned beef; I always look foward to St. Patrick's day. I don't see why people dislike it? I like the taste; the leftovers make a wonderful sandwich.
