Many of your recipes have wine in them. I love your recipes but I never have wine. Is there someting else I can use instead of wine or can I just leave it out?

I would just leave it out Silvia.

The Chicken Fricasse was wonderful. I used my Heavy Stock Pot. And I made extra gravy and cooked dumplings in the liquid as my aunt did.

Last time I had this is when I was doing. My military service back in 1985. My mom made it for on one of my R & R weekends. Ate like a priest. Tried to cook it after my military service just never got it as good my mom's.
