Chicken and Gnocchi Soup
This recipe isn't right..... You forgot the dried thyme and fresh parsley. Also you need to first make a roux by adding flour to butter and oil mixture. NO cornstarch and NO basil! It's parsley OG uses in this soup, not basil!

Baked Scalloped Potatoes
Ok.... This is fantastic! Here is a fool proof method! Sauté a small cooking onion in large pot on stovetop in butter or margarine. Add salt and pepper. When soft, add minced garlic and small can of mushrooms. After fragrant..... Using whisk, stir in a couple ounces of cream cheese and 1/2 cup of sour cream (or whatever you have leftover in fridge). I had homemade ranch dip made with sour cream and HVR powder, so used that. Stir in can of cream of mushroom soup and fill can with milk and add to pot. Combine well. Stir in a Tbsp. of Worcestershire sauce, more salt and pepper to taste, parsley, garlic powder, (and I also added garlic salt). Stir well and let simmer until fragrant. Stir in your sliced potatoes and cover. Let SIMMER on stovetop in sauce, stirring every 5 or 10 minutes, for at least half hour! Wen almost soft, transfer to casserole dish and slip in oven until potatoes are soft and brown on top! You can add cheese if you like but doesn't need it! I added grated Romano cheese to sauce just because I like a little tang, but that was a personal touch! :). Add sautéed ground beef to make it a meal, serve with tossed salad! Do not omit Worcestershire sauce.... Yummy!

Porcupine Meatballs III
Just made these.... Very bland. Needs more salt or garlic salt, pepper, parsley and adding a TBSP of Worcestershire or vinegar would help it! That amount of salt is not nearly enough to compensate for the beef plus rice which absorbs it. Also I would suggest using garlic and onion POwDErS as opposed to the raw chunks, because all those make the meatballs fall apart and not stick together. I will definitely make again but with those changes for sure! Just a thought..... I am wondering if using ketchup in the meatball mixture as opposed to plain tomato soup would taste much better.
