Dijon-Tarragon Cream Chicken
This was really good. It reminded me of the chicken my Mother use to make. I didn't have any tarragon so I subbed it with Thyme. Used half and half instead of heavy cream and added about a 1/4 cup of chicken stock for more flavor. My fiance asked me to add it to the save list for the future which really surprised me as he doesn't usually ask me to repeat a recipe without asking me to add chillies to it next time.. LOL... It must be a winner

Pork Medallions with Balsamic Vinegar and Capers
I found this was missing Flavor!! the sauce is good but unless you drown your meat in it I didn't find it very exciting and the BF asked me not to make it again... that never happens.
