Roasted Wild Mushrooms and Potatoes
so I used this recipe as a jumping off point. I bought 10 oz of crimini and Italian mushrooms and a bag of Trader Joe's fingerling potatoes. To save time I boiled the potatoes while the mushrooms cooked on the stove, then threw them all together in the oven. I only baked them about 15 minutes (did stir them after 8 minutes), then pulled them out and poured the sauce over (2T balsamic, 1T cream sherry, 2t dried tarragon, 1t garlic powder). We liked them but they were a tad sweet. would make again and definitely try to be closer to the original, though this was fine, too.

Amazing Italian Lemon Butter Chicken
this really was amazing! It took me a little over an hour, and I took quite a few shortcuts as mentioned in other reviews. I started with 3 thighs and cut them in chunks, then broiled them on high for 15 minutes or so. I made the sauce with a chardonnay, and only used 8T of butter. I had no issues with it separating, though I had a low and steady heat. I didn't have artichokes, and I made the bacon in the microwave and then crumbled it before adding it to the mushrooms (which I cooked in some butter). I poured half the sauce on the mushroom-chicken-bacon mix, and half on the farfalle after it was in the bowl. I stirred them separately and then together. I really thought the sauce was great, and I liked the dish, but it just took forever. Hubby liked it, but it's a little heavy so not a regular rotation for us. will make it for company in the winter, though!

Orange Cream Cake III
This was okay. I used a French Vanilla cake mix (it was in the pantry), and only 1/4 c cold water (to make jello parts thicker). I used 1/4c. OJ for some of the water in the cake mix recipe, so I left out the orange extract in the frosting part to balance the orange and cream flavors. I used two square 8x8 pans, and after cooling for 2 hours after the jello was poured, I stacked the cakes with frosting in the middle, then covered them in more frosting. I'm not a huge orange person, but when everyone was complimenting the ice cream you served on the side and not the cake, it's probably not a keeper.
