  • Incredible!

    These were delicious! I thought they were easy to make--I bought shredded carrots from the store and threw them in the blender with the oil and the milk (to get the grated effect). I'm going to freeze them so I can have them during the week. Adding this to my recipe book NOW! Thanks for the recipe - 7/7/09
