Beef Stroganoff with White Wine
This recipe is pretty good but it's not really a "stroganoff". It would work better with rice than pasta but we really felt like pasta so I thickened it more. In my opinion, the wine sauce should be reduced down about 1/2 way before adding the cream/flour mixture. I added 1c heavy cream and 1c sour cream since I didn't have half n half. I also used left over steak from the weekend and chopped it up in 1" chunks. Since it was already cooked, I just threw everything in the onion mixture together. I omitted the mushrooms because my hubby hates them. I added peas, 1TBS of worscheshire sauce and a tad of crushed red pepper to give it another dimension. This was a good recipe. I'm not one that can just throw things together, though once I have an idea I never stick to the recipe. So, thanks for the wonderful idea. It made leftovers. :)

Stir-Fry Spicy Green Beans
These were really good. I only used 2 tbs of fish sauce and low sodium soy sauce. I simmered covered for 5 minutes then removed the cover. I tossed in a bit of crushed red pepper for a little spice. It was definitely a 4.5

Lancashire Hot Pot
3.5 stars. I feel like it needed an additional something...maybe a bit of wine, spice, je ne se quoi? I added peas and a bit of sage which gave it a nice flavor. I also browned ground lamb with the onions, added spices, and then layered. It was nice. Definitely a comfort food. I'll make again for another rainy day by the fire. It's a nice change...just needs a bit of tweaking...
