Really good. Cooked carrots can be less than interesting, but this recipe was great. The celery, mushrooms and milk gave the carrots a nice mellow flavour.

This is more like a main dish. If you added chicken and served it over noodles it would be even better. This was just too hearty and rich to be a side dish. Also, I added basil instead of tarragon.

This dish is excellent. The sauce is just perfect and makes this dish work great as a side with a great plain meal like filets and potato (baked and mashed). The only thing I changed was I did not use canned mushrooms. Instead, I used fresh shittake and/or crimini...whatever was available at the time. I think it made a big difference.

These were tasty, but more of a cold weather dish. I made it with garden fresh carrots in the summer.

I just fixed these for supper tonight and no one has tasted them yet except me but I can assure you my family is going to have a whole new attitude about carrots as a side dish. I didn't have any celery and I believe I'll try it that way next time but I used some celery seed so at least the flavor is there. I used a bit more chicken stock seasoning too.

I found this recipe to be simple and really really good. Everyone in my family raved about it, and ate it "all gone" (a feat). I did not use the mushrooms, as I was out, but it turned out well. I added a bit more chicken broth and it gave it a little more sauce. Mmmmm what a great way to eat your veggies!

Pretty tasty! I was specifically looking for recipes that use tarragon. From experience using creams with flour and milk before, I find it easier to mix the milk and flour together before adding them to the pan.

Nice change for a side dish.
