      Not rating it as have not tried this particular recipe. We started mashing carrots with potatoes when the kids were small. It was the only way we could get them to eat carrots! I actually whipped them rather than just mashing them after adding butter and milk, so there were no bits. Of course the potatoes had a light orange tint. Tried it with peas too; that one was a disaster! Thanks for posting. Toni

      These are really good and I love the fact that you get two sides in one! I made exactly as directed and they came out great! The buttermilk was a nice touch rather than plain milk. I had 1 medium potato and three pretty large ones so I used four carrots. Best part is both my boys ate it (and 4yr DS doesn't like potatoes!!) Will be making often! Made for TOTH Veggie Tag 4/2010.
