"I just made this today! It's a keeper! I cheated and tasted it before the family came in for dinner! YUMMY!! I forgot chives at the store but had plenty of italian parsley in the refrigerator, no worries, it is FABULOUS!!! I highly recommend this recipe!"
"I made this after Thanksgiving with leftover cauliflower from a vegetable cornucopia my dau. made. It was delicious and quite easy. And yes, it is a keeper, Thank You !"
"I made this tonight and it was DELICIOUS! My mother said, after the first taste, "this is a keeper". That means she loves it! I used light cream instead of half-and half. I used less salt because Mom is on a low-sodium diet and I used low sodium broth. It still tasted wonderful. I will certainly make this again, and again, and again ..."
"Easy to make and delicious!"
"Unbelieveably easy and so comforting! I didn't have any cream, so I used fat free evaporated milk instead and it turned out just fine. :)"
"I've made this twice now and it is yummy. All I did was add a little bacon and that made it perfect!"
