IMO You are correct too ---If we're cooking --- If we're Baking, then my opinion doesn't mean very much

Well funny you should say this Uncle Bob because its for YOUR recipe!! LOL I wanted to make the stew you posted.

Reason why I didn't just straight ask you is because I also wanted to know just as a general rule, which to use.

Well then -- I can unequivocally state that Half & Half will be just fine!!! Just a little at first --- Then more as you like --- added at the very end.

Enjoy!!

I bought and used Heavy/Whipping Cream ---Which ever the little box said --- I've made the Stew in the past using Half & Half because that's what I had on hand --- It's not that critical --- Your Half & Half will work just fine!!! Again...Add a little for color and richness....taste....add more if you want...To much will make the dish bland. You want to taste the rich broth, and spices.

Fun!
