Making Memories with food is something we all think about. Without realizing it we get so busy we forget about that delicious recipe that we all enjoyed growing up. For me, Chicken Marsala topped off with a slice of Buttermilk Pie is one of those memories. Chicken Marsala is cooked with cooking wine that creates a nutty, rich, caramelized flavor to the chicken. You can purchase the Marsala cooking wine in the vinegar section of you local market. Delicious, easy Buttermilk Pie will melt in your mouth and you will have to turn your head and not count calories that day.
