Subject: Hungarian mushroom soup recipe
uncle phaedrus, I have searched for mushroom recipes trying to get one that would taste as "great" as the
Hungarian mushroom soup from the "boathouse" restaurant in minaqua wi. I even called the kitchen at there
and tried to get the recipe.
It is so delicious! the best mushroom soup I ever had. it has "sherry"in it. other recipes searched don't
come close to theirs.ty from my heart..patricia
I found multiple reviews of The Boathouse Restaurant that praised their signature Hungarian mushroom soup,
but I could not find their recipe or a copycat or even a recipe that someone said was a “tastes like”.
There are multiple authentic Hungarian mushroom soup recipes with sherry on the web, but since I have
never tasted The Boathouse’s soup, I could not recommend one.
I’ll post this on my site. Perhaps one of my readers has had The Boathouse’s soup and can recommend a
“tastes-like” or offer some insight.

Subject: Looking for Recipe
I don't know if you remember a chain from the Bay area named Stickney's. At
one time they had several restaurants around San Jose down to Palo Alto. The
last one operating prior to 2003 was in the Town and Country Village in Palo
Alto on El Camino Real, kitty corner from Stanford. They made a chicken
noodle soup that was the best I have ever had. I'm not sure if Kay Stickney
is still alive but do know her husband passed but sure though by now she
would be up there in years. Have always hoped she might share the recipe but
I have looked over the years to no avail. Hoping you might have better luck,
if still looking for lost recipes.
Thank You so much,
A request for a recipe for the "chicken noodle supreme" soup from Stickney's
Hick'ry House was made to the food column in the Contra Costa Times
newspaper in 2008 and has had no success. Another request for the same
recipe was made on the website Recipelink.com in 2013, also with no success.
That doesn't bode well for finding the recipe. There are multiple requests
for Stickney's Hick'ry House BBQ sauce, as well, and no success there,
either. I could not find any recipes, copycats or "tastes-likes" at all from
I'll post this on the site for reader input.

You'd think by now if Kay Stickney were still alive, she would have let the recipe out
since so many people loved it! LOL.....Thank You for your response and maybe someday we will find it.
The closest to it's taste I have ever found is the Chicken Noodle soup at Chix Fil A.
Perhaps someone who can pick that apart or if that recipe is available, might be a start for a copy cat.
There is a copycat for Chick Fil A chicken noodle soup here: Sparkpeople

Can you please find me the recipe for Chicken Fricassee. It was my favorite and I was just thinking of it the other.
Sure would taste good in this cold weather.
I’m afraid I must disappoint you. I and others have been searching for this recipe for years, and none of us has had any success.
There is a recipe here that you might try: Leeks & Geeks
