kitchenklutz: tomato sauce ladle (saucy ladle)
Over the Thanksgiving week, I re-watched the movie Julie & Julia, which along with a few others was a major inspiration to me in teaching myself how to cook. One of the fantastically tasty-looking dishes shown in that was supremes de volaille aux champignons -- chicken breasts with mushrooms and cream. )

In my defense, I was looking and adapting from both an online version of this recipe at delish.com and the original Childs recipe in The Joy of French Cooking, not to mention making a few modifications of my own (namely the addition of basil and savory).

That said, I would say the final result was astoundingly delicious. I enjoyed it enormously, and would recommend it to anyone. It's relatively straightforward -- no four to five hours in the kitchen, as was my experience with beef bourguignon -- and the ingredients are all affordable and easily found.

With the overblown failure of an overspicy glazed ham on Christmas, I found myself with an overabundance of leftover and somewhat too spicy ham. I put out a request for soup suggestions to use it in, and got more than a few suggestions for ham and potato soup. A little bit of Google-fu later, I had a printed out recipe. I tweaked it, added a few spices, and came up with the following very tasty recipe.

Savory, thick, and tasty soup -- perfect comfort food for a cold winter's night. I am definitely making it again.
