"I halved the recipe and served it with a roast pork loin dinner. Greatly enjoyed the spice blend. This recipe is on our keeper list!"

"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."
