I haven't done it from cooking, but have blown my eybrows off before. Let's just say that I should have known better.

I've done this before with my old boiler in the basement - it was NOT a good look for me.

Well, at least if you're a woman, you can paint them back on without too many strange looks.

That's so true. A young friend of once showed up desperately seeking help. Seems he and a group of friends had spent the night before "celebrating" way too much and he woke up with shaved eyebrows! Sadly, he was to stand in his brother's wedding that day. He begged my daughter and I to help him pencil in eyebrows so his mother wouldn't kill him when she got a look at him. We did the best we could but he looked very strange, to say the least!

If it has tomato sauce or tomatoes in it, it's not Steak Diane, it's an entirely different sauce. It would be like adding tomatoes to a demi with peppercorns and still calling it "sauce au poivre". The person who wrote the recipe might say, "oh well, that's my version of sauce Diane." Fine, but call it something else.

Paula Deen was on today while I was resting and she was making a chicken Divan. it looked like something I might make for a crowd like when all the kids and their family are over. Then I remembered seeing this and after looking it up, this may help you.

That recipe isn't Steak Diane either. It's just steak with a mushroom sauce.

This is probably the closest recipe that I can find online for an authentic Steak Diane. The "sauce base" that they are referring to is veal or beef stock. If you don't want to make it from scratch, buy a good quality (low, or no-sodium if possible) boxed or instant veal/beef broth and reduce it.

Chicken Divan? I've heard of a couch POTATO, but never a couch CHICKEN!
