Reviewed sweet and savory root vegetable stuffing

Nov 24, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Lots of flavor; completely melds, not one sticks out. It is a little time consuming, but well worth it. I peeled and chopped the day before and kept everything in cold water. I subbed chicken broth because it's all I had. Excellent reheated. Brought it to a dinner; making it again for Thanksgiving dinner.

The BEST Potato soup ever. Love the roasting part; it's easy and builds more taste. But the added arugula makes it fresher than any usually heavy soup. Love the fried shallots too. Make it again, and for company.

Expensive cut of meat, but worth it for special occasions. So tasty, simple, easy to cook, attractive looking.

I cook a lot, but only 'save' a few recipes. This is one of 'saved'. The work is minimal, the taste is huge. I only eat a little pasta since i'm getting older - this will be my go - to . I love heat, and usually put in hot peppers etc., without measuring; I measured (because Ina always does), and glad that i did.

Love these and the idea of a big batch to deliver. I love to cook, and this recipe is a joy to make, then deliver to friends for Christmas breakfast. I added pecans to most batches because a favorite of mine. Otherwise, I stuck with the recipe verbatim; like I usually do with baking anything. So easy, great descriptions of how it will look, ""

I love this soup and it is made a little special with the unique toppings. My daughter has become an excellent cook and received this recipe on her email; we're making it tonight. For those who would like it a little chunkier, you could use immersion blender and leave some chunks. "

Fantastic - it's a party! Made it for my daughter-in-law's birthday dinner. I read a few recipes, including Julia's and Alton's. The reviews helped me to choose this one. I agree with the mise en place, having the 3 bowls ready and in place at the same time so that the chocolate can go into the egg/liqueur mixture, then fold the whipped cream."

My 60th Birthday Lunch with friends ! The salmon was the star; several women who don't eat fish, loved it. Those of us who like fish thought it was the tastiest, moistest , bestest fish. Of course the recipe was great, but my friend also paid close attention and cooked it perfectly. Fantastic - ""

Every Spring I think of this recipe because I have plum tree. I make it so often it's a staple dessert for birthdays, dinner parties or just the medium to eat good vanilla ice cream. It's simple, colorful, almost healthy and so tasty. The crust becomes like a cookie, the plums soften, caramelize - and it's so yummy.

Looking for a dinner for special occasion - this is IT ! I made it for Fathers' Day because I could make the whole thing the day ahead and heat it after church. I made exactly as recipe, and made a batch without the meat for vegetarians. Unique, flavorful, attractive - and delicious.

I have made this many times; always love it, and so does my family. I brought it to a large dinner party so I doubled it. I cooked the onions then made the roux before adding the zucchini so that I would have enough room to stir the flour,milk and nutmeg. I added the zucchini and covered the pan for just 5mins., so it stayed firm but cooked eno"

Excellent flavors, and unique freshness for risotto. My daughter and her friend made it, and followed the part about getting everything ready first. It was so flavorful and lighter than some risottos because of all the good green vegetables. Fresh peas and fresh asparagus made it!
