Cooking with Oranges – 10 Delicious Recipes

I love to cook with oranges, orange juice, or zest.  It adds a sweet tangy flavor to any foods to which it is added. It is milder, sweeter, and not as tart as lemon juice so I substitute oranges for lemons sometimes when I don’t want a really tart flavor. The orange flavor enhances other ingredients in foods for breakfast, snacks, lunch, and dinner. It is especially good with meat like chicken or ham or cooked in vegetables.

Please try these 10 delicious recipes made with oranges that my friends and I have made.
