Seafood Stew
Well just put less wine into this, but enough to not make a big difference in the overall stew.

Adrienne's Cucumber Salad
This is close to the way I remember cucumber salad at family picnics as a youngster. I've tried to remember what went into it,but failed till I found this. I've tried this several times just changing a few thing each time. 1st it was a bit too sweet so I reduced the sugar to 1/2c & as I was growing up(and still do)hot peppers were a family favorite, so I add banana peppers & tomato cut into small pieces & a pinch of minced garlic.
