take so long to bake. I Did use cranberries...

I know its suppose to be light; but I don't think adding soy or teriyaki would add to many calories. Definitely needs more flovor. Kids liked it so that's a plus. My husband added sriracha hot Chili sauce. Will try again."

I love pumpkin so I added more pumpkin. Didn't have heavy cream so I added whole milk instead. It came out great. Even my son who is not big with trying new things; liked it. I will make this dish again. Tip; sauce thicken up as it cools; put some pasta water aside even if you don't think you need it. Don't boil sauce will separate."

I've never made lentil soup. I bought some steamed lentils that are ready to eat. I hope it works the same in this recipe. I can't wait to try this soup. I was disappointed that people are using this site to sell things. If I wanted to buy a jersey I'm not going to look here.

This was my first time making risotto and it was wonderful. I was concerned about it being to salty so I used 4tlbs unsalted butter, low sodium ckn broth and no pancetta. I am definitely making this risotto, it was so easy.
