    These were really tasty carrots! The carrots made the milk slightly sweet and it tasted so creamy! Usually recipes warn you not to curdle the milk, but I think the effect on this recipe was appropriate. I used 2% milk and baby carrots, and added a couple of minutes to the cooking time. I recommend that you be diligent about mixing on a regular basis, particularly with baby carrots. The outcome was great! I served this as a side dish to a (sightly salty) tofu recipe so I was grateful that there was no extra salt in this recipe. Thanks so much! Great job.

    Not so good. No flavor. Not worth the effort. Steamed carrots have more flavor.

    This was a fine recipe. It was tasty and innovative, but I personally prefer steamed carrots with a little bit of butter. However, it was fun to try something foreign!

    Looking at this I was trying to figure out what made the carrots so special. Even with my skim milk and light butter, these were so silky and decadent tasting. I bet the full fat versions are just out of this world. This recipe is just wonderful and a breeze to prepare.

    When the carrots were almost done ,I added a little cornstarch mixed with cold water to thicken the leftover milk.Added 1/2 tsp salt and a dash of black pepper,made a nice sauce with the carrots and onions. The carrots were nice and sweet onions turned out to be pretty mild cooked in milk. Recommended way to cook carrots...


I'm the mother to two boys (Yaron °2002, Noah °2004) and I am happily married since 2000. I work as an administrative assistant in a primary school. I have liked cooking since I was a little girl, strangely enough, my mother never really enjoyed cooking, so I don't know where I am getting it from. Cooking is really taking a break for me (at least of my two boys will leave me to it). I try to involve my kids as much as possible in cooking and they already enjoy making cookies, cakes and popsicles. I like to bake so when it's their birthday I let them choose their favourite cake. This year I made a pirate ship for the youngest one and a treasure chest for my oldest. I am active in my children's school and I like to craft when there's time left, which isn't too much lately. Every night before I go to bed, I need to read at least a chapter in a book. It has become such a ritual that it is hard to sleep when I haven't. I do have quite a few cookbooks, but the ones I would miss the most if I'ld lost them (even if I don't make that much recipes out of them) are my great grandmothers cookbooks, which are partly just little pieces of paper with a recipe scribbled onto it. I also really like the cookbooks and tv-shows of Jamie Oliver and Nigela Lawson. I really like the countryside, even if I don't really live in it. (I live in a suburb of Bruges) My dream is to one day buy a small little farmhouse with just a few animals and a beautiful garden, where I could grow some veggies to can in summer. Well, one can dream can we... My pet peeves are agressive drivers, people who don't take others into consideration and who are selfish. <embed src=",0" quality="high" salign="lt" width="130" height="160" wmode="transparent" name="LGP" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage=""/> </embed> <a href=",0&src=1" > <img src="" border="0" height="160" width="130" bgcolor="#00FF66"/> </a> <a href=""> <img border="0" src=";10748;127/st/20080628/e/Going+to+Bretagne%2C+France/k/32aa/event.png"></a> <a href=""><img src="" alt="Lilypie 5th Birthday Ticker" border="0" /></a> <a href=""><img src="" alt="Lilypie 6th to 18th Ticker" border="0" /></a> <a href=""><img src="" alt="DaisypathAnniversary Years Ticker" border="0" width="400" height="80" /></a> <a href="">You are now marked on my visitor map!</a><a href=""><img border=0 src="" alt="Visitor Map"></a><a href="">Create your own visitor map!</a> Participation & Awards: <a href="¤t=thelorikeets.gif" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="March Aussie Tag Badge"></a> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=> [img][/img] <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
