WoW, These are so good, we really enjoyed the carrots. I served them with a green Salad, Baked Ham and AuGratin Potatoes. Also Peach Kuchen for Dessert, Yum Yum. Thanks Lennie for the great recipe.

This is a different way to make carrots. I'm trying to get more veggies in our meals and I think this is a good one! I used baby carrots and dried herbs- I'm sure fresh would be way...better.

I made this for Christmas dinner and it was a hit. I'll be making them again. I didn't change anything in the recipe. Thanks!!
