It was a great recipe! My mother and I made this for the whole family on Thanksgiving, and it was a huge hit. We did make minor changes, instead of 2 tablespoons of butter we used two tubs of butter, we didn't have any honey, so we used bacon grease we had from breakfast that morning. Lastly, we decided to substitute the carrots with golden potatoes. I think this recipe will be used again and again. YUM!

Family did not like this dish. Plain old butter, salt and pepper turned out best.
