Chicken Wild Rice Soup I
This was a whole lot of work for not a whole lot of taste. In fact, the taste reminded me of bland baby food until I added about 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder, which definitely make it much better. Also, I had omitted the salt, thankfully, because the broth I used was already quite salty. The consistency was okay. It only took about an hour to simmer and thicken up, but I had used one cup half and half and one cup full cream. Perhaps it would have taken a bit longer to thicken had I used all half and half instead. I think there are probably other recipes out there for chicken and wild rice soup that have a lot more flavor, but perhaps this is a good base to use and then add your own extra seasonings. I quite liked the almonds in this, and was surprised that they remained a bit crunchy despite having cooked for so long. But if you do like crunchy nuts in otherwise soft things, you may want to skip them.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini
I was really disappointed with this. Not only was it bland (despite adding extra garlic), but it also had a strange after-taste to it that I found unpleasant. Also, the mixture of the canned tomatoes with the milk and cream gave it a strange pink/salmon color, which was a bit off-putting. The color didn't bother me too much, but because of it, it's not something that I would serve for company even if it did taste good.

Super Duper Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff
This was okay, but I guess I was expecting more, considering all the ingredients that went into. However, I did make the mistake of adding 1/3 too much sour cream because I read the directions wrongly. Then when I taste-tested it, I found it to be quite bland, so I added about 1/2 teaspoon of extra worchestershire sauce. In the end, it still didn't have quite as much flavor as I was hoping it would. I think I'll go back to my much more simple and much more flavorful stroganoff recipe, which is basically just some sour cream mixed with a packet of Lipton onion soup mix.
