      I very much enjoyed this. Rich and creamy. I added 3 cups milk, but 2 were whole milk and 1 was 1%, so because of that - the last 1 cup I added was 1/2 cup half and half and 1/2 cup heavy cream to make up the "fat" content. It still worked out to be 4 cups total so that didn't alter the recipe at all. Worked out great.

      Two changes were ... I felt it needed a little onion, so I diced up a couple of scallions as a garnish. That was all I needed

      My second change, I didn't add the sugar. However ... I think it depends on your carrots. Mine were very sweet and very fresh from the farmers market. I think that is really what will determine whether you need sugar or not. My carrots were sweet as is.

      But that was it. Very easy, tasty, warming and comfort food. Made it sunday and having a big bowl for dinner tonight. Loved it.
      Thx for a very nice recipe.
