"Yep I added the other tablespoon of butter to them and they are much better now, so if you cut the butter cut the lemon ingredients also."

"They were ok, I used only 1 tbsp. butter b/c of the other coments, maybe more butter would have made them better after all b/c they were very strong lemon."

"Made on the stove because we don't like microwaved food. Way too much butter; it solidified on the carrots on the way to the table. Won't make this again."
