Made these with my prime rib. I agree use low sodium broth. I halved the recipe, but wow! So good and rich. Could have made a meal out of these with bread! I used rosemary instead of dill..just not a fan.""

My new go to recipe for mashed potatoes! Even my dad says they are the only mashed potatoes he can eat without gravy. I do use only one stick of butter and seems to be plenty. I never make them any other way now. ""

I have made this many times exactly as written and I love it. I use the whole cup of vodka. Now when I make it I make some adjustments for my taste. I add red pepper flakes and some fresh basil. I also saute some crimini mushrooms and add chopped artichoke hearts. Add parm just before serving. Really my new fav pasta. I don't even crave my ...

This is the first Lisa recipe I've tried and I loved it!!! Got home tonight at 6:15 and got started. Pretty easy...little chopping but no big deal. I omitted the grated cheese on top and added a slice of fat free American to each serving then topped with some salsa verde. Zapped in micro for about 30 secs to melt cheese and warm salsa. Porti...

OMG! Delish! Made several times and brought to friends and they all agree better than any restaurant. I blanch my own fresh broccoli and add more cheese but followed the rest of the recipe. One of my favorite comfort soups. I want some now!!""

Although I love Giada this did not really impress me. I used the best cheese and cream and still not a whole lot of flavor. I even added shitake mushrooms. Probably won't make again.

Update: Since I started adding more salt I love this dish. Took a chance and tried it a second time now I make it often. Serve with tri tip for...

I made this last night. I made a few changes simply because I was doing this from memory, but I won't bore you with those. But this rocked! I tasted it before I even put the mushroom paste in and it was outstanding. Using the mushroom water and the paste is the key. I have never made a risotto so good and will never use another recipe. My husband...

This was excellent. I followed the recipe except I added more artichokes and left out the cayenne (did not have any but added a splash of hot sauce. I was a bit nervous about the brie because I have never used it, but WOW! My guests could not stop eating it. It makes a lot so I froze half for Christmas. I will make it again, but forget the fresh...
