    Great platform to start with......empty the fringe. Added ham and summer sausage and 2 beef bullion cubes and pepper to taste.

    I made a few changes, and it was great! First, I chopped the bacon before cooking, and used 1 TBS olive oil to brown. Then I sautéed the veggies (adding a small chopped onion) in 3 TBS butter for 5 minutes before adding to the pot. I used 1 qt beef bone broth and 1.5 quarts water. I did add 2 bay leaves while cooking.

    This wasn’t good. I didn’t add bacon due to my diet but regardless it wasn’t good. I’m gonna drain the water and just mix in bbq sauce.

    Good food, added a habanero without seeds. Substituted snort bacon for turkey. Gotta say that the recipe and instructions were a little on the wrong side of ok. No mention of onion in list...apart for garlic/celery...but in instructions said ad onion(so I did) But it’s frustrating for novice kitchen warriors 🤬 Also, no mention of amount of bay leaves or basil, or if it’s fresh or dried....
