Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
I really liked this recipe and it makes for a great starter that allows you to experiment a little. I used basil instead of tarragon, which I really liked and I also added green onions and fresh shredded pepper jack cheese at the end. The green onion did a little bit for presentation, but I liked the pepper jack cheese, because a there were a few bites that would have a little kick. I also added cooked bacon before adding the cream mixture and some more after adding the cream mixture. I would recommend adding it at the end, because the bacon doesn't have as much flavor after sitting in with everything else for so long. I also did not use a blender, because i don't have one, so I just mashed them with a spatula (also don't have a potato masher) and though the potatoes weren't mashed entirely, I got the texture that I wanted. I don't see any need to add salt because I used chicken broth. Overall, was really pleased with this recipe and will definitely be making this again.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
Love this recipe because it is sooooo easy. Although I made a few adjustments. I decided I wanted to make it a little spicy so I added two serrano peppers, which I partially regret cause now it is almost too spicy, so I'll probably just add 1 next time. Also, instead of parsley I used cilantro and since I didn't have cornstarch I used 4 teaspoons of flour with 4 teaspoons of water instead. Overall, great reciple, very easy and the outcome makes you want to make it again and again.
