Lemon Butter Sauce

I know it's been a while. I found out I was pregnant in June and I was sick for several weeks. I'm doing better now and trying to catch up on all my blogs!
I have a few recipes from the last couple months. This recipe is actually from last night, but it was an easy one so I'm putting it up first. I told my friend about it yesterday and couldn't wait to make it for dinner! It is the best lemon butter sauce I've ever made! I keep trying new recipes because I liked a lemon butter sauce I had at Cheesecake Factory once. This recipe is the closest I've found! But I can't remember where I got it. Sorry.

Lemon Butter Sauce

1/4 cup Lemon juice
2 Tbsp. White wine
1/2 cup Heavy whipping cream
2 sticks Butter (room temp.)

Heat Lemon juice and wine over medium heat and reduce by one third. Add cream and simmer on low until thickened. Slowly add butter, 2-3 pats at a time, until incorporated. Once it's smooth again it's done, but I let mine simmer (stirring occasionally) for another 30 minutes or so - let all that alcohol cook out!
This makes about 2 cups of the sauce which is plenty enough for 4 people with about a ton of left overs! I'd say there are at least 20 servings. When I reheat mine I like to put a bit in a small cup and just dip my chicken in it. Actually, I'll pour it over my potatoes and whatever else is on my plate too!

So about this blog...

I love to cook. I don't get to experiment with as much as I'd like, but I try what I can. I watch Food Network all the time and love trying things I see.
My twist is that I never follow a recipe completely. So, in my posts I'll tell you where I got the idea and the basic recipe, but I'll post the recipe the way that I made it.

All photographs on this blog will be my own, so it will be what food/recipes that I use really look like.
