      Very good and easy to make. I love finding new ways to make veggies. I followed the recipe as written other then I bought a bag of shredded carrots so I didn't have to do the work LOL. We all enjoyed them.

      I really enjoyed these carrots. The bay leaf was a wonderful addition, and not something I'd ever added to carrots before. I used some turkey stock (from the Thanksgiving turkey) instead of using water and a bouillon cube. Otherwise I made as posted. I did have to add a bit more water to get my carrots tender, but that could be my stove....its a bit eccentric. Thanks for sharing! Made for the Aussie Reunion game.

      These carrots were absolutely delicious! I left out the onions as I don't care for them, and used regular milk instead of cream. The bay leaf added a nice flavor and I loved the creaminess of the coating on the carrots. Great recipe - thanks for sharing it! Made for the Best of 2010 Event (recommended by AZPARZYCH)
