"This particular recipe was found in TOH Annual Recipes 2016, and it was sent to them by Gloria Mezikofsky of Wakefield ,Massachusetts. Before making I read the reviews on the TOH site,and I found a few shortcuts that made the recipe much simpler to make.For just the two of us,the recipe was reduced by half. In the original recipe, she cooked the potatoes and carrots at two separate times, the way that I did it 20 minutes were knocked off the prep time. In the cook time, I listed both prep and oven times. Posted to " ZAAZ " on 10/27/17. " Keep Smiling :)"
