10 stars! This is so good, I actually made it twice this week. We don’t like dill so I used tarragon and it worked great. Thanks for a real keeper. (and pretty easy too).

Fantastic recipe.So flavorful and comforting. It feels like a hug. I didn't have fresh dill so I used dill seeds.And I quartered the mushrooms. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to.

at first I was only going to give it a 4 star as my rating is very specific but then I let some sit till the next day at which time I felt it deserved 5 stars. the amount of mushrooms in it was not too much as first thought It would be. some recipes I tinker with but not this one, it is good all on its own merit
