"Ripped a page out a magazine years ago. What a great picture. It says "dinner classic: tender cutlets, gently browned, smothered in a flavorful mushroom-vermouth sauce. They show it on a platter with red cherry tomatoes and garnished with parsley."

    It's very nice. I chose not to saute the cherry tomatoes since they are terrific just to pop raw at this time of year. I'm more inclined to saute cherry tomatoes to give them more flavor when they are not entirely in season. Thanks for posting this; I enjoyed trying the recipe.


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
