"A fine Bearnaise sauce, but not the best one I've ever made. The water diluted the flavor more than I'd like. Next time I make it, I'll omit the water and substitute in equal parts of white wine vinegar and white wine."

OK, bearnaise sauce sounds so fifties. But let me tell you -- it's darned good. Serve with grilled steak and asparagus, and pair with a good Merlot for a great, albeit rich, summertime outdoor meal.
