  1. This recipe looks great and I hope to try it real soon, but how much milk/cream do you use? I can’t see the quantity mentioned in the recipe.

    1. Great question Jacqui 🙂 If you use cream, add 1/4 to 1/4 of a cup and if using milk ( 1/2 a cup to a cup perhaps.) this is only for 2-3 people. If you are making it in bulk, double the quantities.

    2. LOVE your mushrooms ! When pploee ask your children what’s your job, do they answer you’re a magician ? Seven kids … three possibilities : drink the while bottle, give each of them a drop of wine or change them into mushrooms 😀 Sorry sweet kids, I’m a silly girl !
