We liked this dish but all agreed there were too many onions and we couldn't taste the honey-butter. We cooked the carrots separately. I would make it again but reduce the amount of onions and marjoram and reduce cooking time.

This was really yummy and easy. I did reduce the cooking time to allow for not mushy carrots.

I added more carrots making 1-1/2 times the recipe and adjusted seasonings accordingly. I cooked it on the stove top on low heat for an hour instead of the crockpot. We really liked it, but took it to a potluck the next day and was disappointed there weren't any leftovers to bring home!

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.
