This is a lovely soup to serve in the summertime, as it is served chilled. If you prefer, you can substitute sour cream for the creme fraiche. To make creme fraiche, just combine 1 cup of whipping cream with 2 tbsp of buttermilk. Once combined, cover and let stand at room temperature for 8 hours. This will make a cup of creme fraiche. Prep and cooking time does not include the chill time!
Aptly named, because of the color added by the Burgundy, the mushrooms, chives, parsley, and paprika! Also the 30 minute bake time gives a painter time to clean his brushes so he can eat! To cut down on clean-up, wipe the skillet used for browning the veal with paper towels to remove the pan drippings, and use the same skillet to saute the vegetables. The herbs listed are fresh, so if using dried herbs, reduce the amount by half.
This is a very easy and tasty chicken dish, thanks to the wonderful creamy mustard sauce. To make the dish richer,use margarine or butter instead of the cooking spray. You can also use whipping cream instead of the fat-free half and half. You can use any type of mushroom, depending on your preference. I like baby bellas.
This recipe is quick enough to make on a weeknight, and yummy enough for company! The crushed black peppercorns are key....do not grind them into a fine mix. Take the peppercorns and put them into a non-breakable flat pan (like a metal pie pan), cover with a dish cloth or napkin, and pound them with a wooden or rubber mallet so that they are crushed or cracked, not ground. Yummy, yummy!
This is also known as "boeuf en daube a la provencale". You will need cheesecloth to make your "bouquet garni", and you marinate the meat for 10 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Marinating time is not included in prep and cooking time.From Classic International Recipes, this is best cooked in a very heavy dutch oven, such as Le Creuset.
This recipe is great to rub under the skin of a Thanksgiving turkey, and also delicious stirred into hot cooked grits or mashed potatoes, melted over steamed broccoli or grilled asparagus. Also good over beef tenderloin. Total time does not include cooling time.
