The texture was perfect but the flavour was a little bit bland. Some herbs and white wine or other additions would help. The directions were excellent.

I've never made or even had risotto before. This was so good. I used long grain rice, it was all I had, and powdered parmesan cheese, and it turned out great! I appreciated the step by step directions, it made it pretty easy to make!

Okay, try not to cringe, but I was in a pinch so I made this with Minute Rice. It was fabulous! Big hit with the kids.

Perfect basic recipe, proportions and technique. Add flavours as you need. Try garlic chives in spring. Mmm

I have made this recipe quite a few times. It is easy to follow and the end product is always as good as what you would get at a restaurant. You can tweak it many different ways. For example- adding lemon zest or some juice, 2 cloves of garlic, substituting some liquid with white wine, adding veggies (love peas) or meat (just added smoked salmon!). This is now my go to recipe. Easy enough to make for the family even when DH is out of town- NICE!

This was very nice. I used this recipe as a jumping off point and added some chicken to it to make a meal. (As far as my husband is concerned a meal must have meat heheheh) I did add some Montreal seasoning and red pepper flakes to the chicken as it was cooking. Definitely a keeper.

This was very simple, and the instructions helped a lot. It made a nice side dish with BBQ ribs and a fresh salad. I will be sure to try more complicated versions now that I am comfortable with this one, and I will make this one again because everyone liked it. I would describe the flavour as subtle, and creamy.
