"Creamy rice and sweet, buttery carrots go with just about any meal. This recipe was a specialty of my mother's. It has been served in our family for Thanksgiving and Christmas for over 25 years, but it can be served anytime. It is very rich and quite delish."

I thought this was really good. It was a bit too sweet for me so the next time I make it I'm going to cut down on the sugar.

Yummy...great comfort food! For a healthier version, I cut way back on the sugar and butter and replaced the half and half with soy milk. Oh, I also used long grain brown rice, instead of white. It was still delicious!

This recipe tasted quite strange to me and the rest of my family. It was strange to eat something milky and sweet with carrots in it. We will not try it again.
