This is the first of Bobby's recipes that I have made. It is awesome! Two small changes - (1 I toasted the baguette in the toaster oven; and (2 I only used shredded Gruyere cheese. I will be making this recipe again and again. Thanks Bobby! "

This is my first time making an Anne Burrell recipe, but it will not be my last. According to my son, this recipe should receive "5 million stars". This dish is awesome!!!! I couldn't find Jerusalem artichokes at the store so I substituted jicama, which turned out really well. Thanks Anne!!!! "

I saw this on the show today and just had to try it. It is awesome! As a substitute for the potatoes, I doubled the amount of carrots and parsnips. I also used skim milk rather than whole milk. If you use skim milk, I would recommend constantly whisking the milk mixture for 5 to 7 minutes to ensure that it thickens. Thank you Rachael!!!!"

Love a recipe that I see in the morning and make the same evening. I just used eggplant (2 of them). Next time, I would use three eggplants and cut them a little thicker than what was demonstrated on today's show. Cutting the eggplant too thin results in burnt eggplant during roasting Two eggplant only filled a 9 x 9 dish. To fill an entire casse"

This recipe is wonderful. Made a couple changes to make it slightly more healthy. I used fat-free half and half and substituted fat-free evaporated milk for heavy cream. The bisque was still very creamy. Also, because of the amount of wine in the recipe, I simmered for 20 minutes rather than 5 minutes at the end. As noted by another reviewer,"

This is an excellent recipe. Watched this episode with my kids, who said, "Can you make this?" I made just two changes. Rather than use potatoes and green beans, I roasted one pound of carrots and one pound of parsnips. I then added them at the same time as the meatballs. Thank you Rachael! "

The recipe is absolutely wonderful and very easy to make. According to my daughter - "The best cheddar broccoli soup that I have ever tasted". According to son - "It is creamy, crunchy, smooth - three of my favorite things." We doubled the recipe and look forward to leftovers for the rest of the week. "

I made this recipe for a dinner party this evening. Given the number of people, I doubled the recipe, but rather that using twice as much broccoli, I use 2 pounds of cauliflower. Like others who reviewed this recipe, I used skim milk for the sauce and it still turned out very creamy. Also used cheddar cheese and a white cheese from our local far"

This was awesome. Made some changes to reduce the calories. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts (3). I also used half the amount of the pasta and used a whole wheat kind. Also used a whole green pepper and a whole red pepper for more veggies. After reading one of the other reviews, I substituted two shallots for the onion. Final change "

Thank you Ina so much for this recipe. I have been looking for a good cornbread recipe, and I have found it. I changed the recipe slightly - 2 cups of cornmeal and 2 cups of flour. Also, all I had was salted butter so I left out the salt. The result was absolutely wonderful! Tasted just like the cornbread that you get in a restaurant or in th"

Another case of where we see it on TV in the morning and then make the recipe for dinner that evening. I added the spinach with the tomato puree and it turned out great. I had extra turkey/spinach stuffing, which I will freeze and use for a pasta meat sauce in a few weeks. Adding the boursin to the bechamel sauce was wonderful. Overall, this ...
