Hungarian Goulash I
This was very good. I used flank steak since that's what I had on hand and Spanish smoked paprika (also what I had on hand). I added a little bit of brown sugar since I didn't use the sweet paprika, and used 1/4 cup of wine in place of some of the water to give it that wine reduction richness I love. This would be wonderful served over homemade spaetzle but I wasn't that motivated, so served over buttered egg noodles. You probably do not need quite a smuch oil as this calls for. I am also partial to very salty foods but felt 3 tsp. was way too much so I cut it back, then decided it was perfect. For those with less salty tastes, I'd use half the salt and add it to taste.

Mom's Paprika Chicken with Potatoes
Excellent and EASY meal. I used 2 chicken breast and 3 medium potatoes cut in 1/4s. I used hot smoked Spanish paprika and added some onion when I seared the chicken. Also used fresh garlic chopped, and added some whole peppercorns. Great flavor and I liked how the potatoes browned. I didn't add any extra liquid because I wanted them to brown, but did use more low-medium heat for 30 minutes instead of mediu. Fantastic and great flavor. I highly recommend using hot smoked paprika.

Chef John's Cottage Fries
This is my new "go to" potato recipe after I've tired of regular roasted potatoes, twice baked, mashed, etc. I love the flavor of the herbs de provence and the SO said he liked these better then our favorite jojo potatoes at the bar; more flavorful and less greasy. I didn't use the parchment paper and just put it directly on the baking sheet and this turned out fine, albeit messier. I have tried two of Chef John's recipes thus far and intend to go down the list with them as they've both been five stars.
