This is good. A simple dessert or with breakfast. This would probably be good with Balkan (thick) yogurt dolloped on top. Made for NA*ME Tag!

This was so good and so easy to make. I really enjoyed the sweet syrup over the oranges. Thanks! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.

Oranges are a favorite of mine, especially when I can find the home-grown, large navel variety, which, in this case, I did! This is a great, easy-to-make recipe that results is a tasty side for breakfast! I actually got 2 servings from it when I topped the oranges with a generous portion of chopped Medjool dates! Very delicious! [Made & reviewed for one of the players in the PRMR Holiday Special, just because I wanted to do it!]
