"I thought these were overcooked and mushy after following the allotted time in this recipe. I think if I had used baby carrots and not sliced them, this may have been more successful. Also, we couldn't really taste the honey-butter over the marjoram seasoning."

"So easy! I used fresh cracked black pepper instead of the white, it was what I had on hand."
