I use the lower sodium beef and chicken. Really makes a difference in a dish that has a broth or gravy. I am not a salt person, so the lower sodium suits me fine. The clam BTB for me is very salty with the taste of the sea. Perfect for clam chowder. With the saltiness of the clams and the BTB, I have no need to put salt in the chowder. They didn't have the lower sodium version when it first showed up at my supermarket. My next purchase will be for the veggie BTB.

Thanks for that, Kayelle. Looks like I can waste spend a lot of time on this site too. I noticed the Lobster Bisque recipe called for white wine, but shouldn't it have Sherry? I thought a bisque always used Sherry.

I glanced over a few of the recipes . I might get the ingredients for the Strata Croque Madame one of these shopping trips soon; it looked really good to me. I could probably substitute Challah bread for the croissants.

Dang!!! Now I have to buy more. Kale with tomatoes and black eyed peas looks pretty good, as does the lobster bisque.

I want to order the ham base. Does it have a smoky flavor or just a regular boiled ham flavor?
I use/have chicken, turkey, beef and mushroom flavored.

MsM, I took a taste of my new jar of Ham flavor, and it has a pronounced smoky flavor!
