    Just the thing I was looking for. It was quick and easy and delish! I also cut down on some of the sugar but replaced it with a bit of maple syrup. - 1/22/09

    Easy to make, not as sweet tasting as I had hoped. I think it needs to be cooked with the glaze for a bit longer. - 9/15/08

    These were wonderful! I used crinkle cut carrots instead of baby carrots, and I let it simmer a little longer that the recipe called for. I wasn't a big fan of cooked carrots; I am now!! Will make them again and again! - 1/2/11

    I was so very happy to eat this! All the people complaining about the sauce just need to simmer it down a little more and keep rolling the carrots in it every few minutes or so. This is fabulous! I cut the butter in half and used 1/8C each brown sugar and honey. Really great side dish, thanks! - 11/11/10
