I love cooked carrots...steamed, roasted, cooked any way really. To me they are so sweet and almost like dessert. I made some for DS2 for dinner and he wasn't interested so I put a tiny bit of butter and brown sugar on them and literally ate them for my dessert (I wouldn't put it on Pinterest as a dessert though, lol). DH much prefers raw. Raw is okay, but mainly as a vehicle for ranch or hummus or something to fill me up when I'm dieting.
