"These were awesome and easy to make! They were not crispy but reminded me of baked sweet potato fries. My husband and son liked them. Will make again."

"After making these carrots a couple of times, 2 of my grown kids requested it for a subsequent dinner. And one of these kids don't consider carrots a favorite veggie! The time and temperature listed in the recipe are right on and I don't mess with that which was written--especially after I tried a different temperature and time to accommodate an entree in order to cook in the same oven and the carrots were less good. If temperatures of entree and carrots differ, I use my second oven. The spice amounts seem correct as well and the carrots are tender but not mushy. Some carmelization will occur during roasting but that's ok. A keeper for years to come!"

"I like the addition of all the spices! It was a refreshing change of pace. I thought I would have to cook them longer, but it was right on target with the recipe. Our kids are plain eaters and weren't huge fans, but my husband and I thought the carrots were delicious."

"Unlike the other readers, I didn't care for this at all. Way too many spices. I like the idea of roasting them, but due to all the spices, I couldn't taste any carrot at all. Will make again with alot less spices."
