Chicken Marsala
This is a great recipe & really easy and fast to make. I followed the suggestions...such as..used a ziploc bag to coat chicken, tripled mushrooms, double sauce, added chicken broth and garlic. I served this over long grain rice. Big hit with the boyfriend!

Coq Au Vin, My Way
This was delicious, lots of work. I used baby bellas instead of portabellas. The store I shop at only had huge bottles of burgundy, so I used a red wine I had on hand. The only thing was my sauce was a little runny. Which is strange since I added more cheese then what the recipe called for, I did use the cornstarch. Maybe I will increase the amount next time. It tasted great the next day as leftovers, I served mashed potatoes and green beans.

Hot Mexican Spinach Dip
This was a big hit at our superbowl party! I omitted the milk. Next time I will maybe use half the amount required, since it was a little thick.
