      This is a wonderful combination. I modified the glaze by adding a bit more water and a little sugar to cut the tartness, and I put more toasted pecans on top, but the fundamental character of this recipe is wonderful. I recently prepared a casserole dinner for 20, and at least half of them went for seconds of this dish

      This is a delicious side dish even though my cupboard was bare in the cornstarch dept.!! I hate when that happens but the lemony butter was great just the same. Pecans don't work here due to allergy but sliced almonds are always a good substitute. Next time I make this (and there will be many next times) I will be sure to have some cornstarch on hand. Thanks for sharing your super fine recipe!

      This is a great combo of flavors. I used baby carrots. I think I had the heat too high, since the sauce thickened up too fast and was lumpy, but tasty!
