Chicken Gruyere with Sauteed Mushrooms
I really enjoyed the rich flavor of this dish - the sauce was amazing! Because some reviewers had said the chicken was bland, I marinated my chicken breasts in OVV, garlic, and white wine. I also dipped it in egg prior to the flour and browned it in OVV,instead of butter,and added more crushed garlic as I think there is no such thing as too much garlic. I made a rue with the extra seasoned flour after the mushrooms and onions were soft to which I added wine to make a decent amount of sauce. I just eyeballed the amount, but 1/2 cup of wine was not enough - in fact, I only cooked 2 large chicken breasts and used the amounts of stuff it had called for 4. I used Jarlsberg as I was out of Gruyere. I served it over white rice - and the sauce over the rice - fabulous!! I'm sorry I don't have any left for lunch today!!!!!

Beef Stroganoff III
This was really tasty! I used sirloin steak(sliced very thin), OVV, fresh mushrooms (canned are for dire emergencies!),low sodium beef broth and fat free sour cream to try to make it a bit healthier. It was great over egg noodles but I was disapointed that there were not any leftovers!!

Lemon Horseradish New Potatoes
These were absolutely awesome! We love horseradish and lemom and were surprised at how delicious and mellow the flavors became after baking. I often spread potatoes onto a baking sheet with olive oil and various mixes of spices. I think I'll try this mix to see how it turns out. We like crisp potatoes but don't like to fry. Definitely will make again!
