    So good! Easy to make, though having 3 pans going on the cook top at once is kinda tricky for me, and so tasty! I just ended up letting people add salt and pepper to their taste, rather than adding it in. Great recipe! - 1/5/11

    I had never had turnips before, but this recipe was delicious.It's been a long time since I had any creamy vegetable, so this was a treat. I didn't have half & half, so I used 2% milk and threw in a Tbl of FF cream cheese. - 3/6/11

    It's great. Reminds me of making these with my Nana, when I was young. - 12/5/18
