  1. I like the overall concept but I think maybe I had some trouble with the metric conversions? I will definitely try to make this again and update my review when I do.
  2. Great! Only change I made was I couldn't find marinated mushrooms so used 200g of button mushrooms instead, I thought the extra quantity of fresh mushrooms would be needed to give it enough flavour and that was just right to complement the chicken without being too strong.


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
