Rich and Creamy Beef Stroganoff
Would have been 5 stars if we had decreased the amount of the red pepper flakes. As it was, following the recipe, the spice was overpowering. In the future, we will be using 1/2 a teaspoon, not 2 teaspoons. We like spicy food, but the spice masked the warm inviting flavors of the stroganoff.

Sage Pork Chops
As some other reviewers stated, omitting the added salt would have greatly improved this dish. As it was, having followed the recipe, it was EXTREMELY salty. In the future we will omit the added salt and use a low sodium beef broth instead of the bouillon.

Loaded Potato Soup I
We liked the soup very well as a cream of potato soup before adding the sour cream and cheese. Once the sour cream was added, it overpowered the whole thing and it just tasted like warm sour cream. In the future, we will be omitting the sour cream and doubling the cheese or using a sharper cheddar for a more pronounced flavor.
