Stuffed Mushrooms

White button mushrooms are earthy, pleasing to eat, and the perfect appetizer! Mushrooms are available for many recipes but the holiday season is a great time to think about stuffing mushroom caps. The mushroom cap can be stuffed with a wide variety of fillings. This recipe is one of my favorites to use when company is coming!

Weekend Bounty

Saturday breakfast is hard. With getting up to volunteer at the BB site, bringing the bounty home, and then trying to get everything rinsed and put away, making breakfast on Saturday morning is generally the last thing I want to do. But this time, my husband woke up early to pick up our bounty and the bonus was that I was highly motivated to make something yummy for breakfast! Low and behold, beautiful grape tomatoes, onions, asparagus, and I just happened to have mushrooms and eggs in the fridge. Coupled with the most wonderful Organic honey wheat bread purchased as an add-on this week this was a Saturday morning treat I’m sure I can use to bribe my husband and children to wake up every Saturday morning for basket pickup!

Savory Galettes

In planning a menu for a Games Night the idea of tapas came to mind. This reminded me of a recipe in the August 2013 Better Homes and Gardens August for Lemony Ricotta Summer Squash Galette. Not only was it easy, it used ingredients already on hand! I also knew I could easily change a few ingredients and use up even MORE!

Margarita-Marguerita Pasta

As my husband has learned over the years, what I say we are having for dinner is not always what we end up with.  I always have a rough idea of what I am going to make, but most of the time it evolves as I actually begin to cook.  Last night was a prime example of that. I set out to make pasta with chicken, lime and capers, but ended up making Margarita-Marguerita Pasta instead.  At the dinner table I was listing the ingredients and the hubby asked if it had capers …….. to which I replied, “Not tonight.   I changed it.  Capers will be next time.”  His thoughts?  “Of course you did.”

Mushroom Spaghetti Squash

From Dawn B
VSC Everett WA


We are a meat loving family (my husband is ‘the meat man’ and works for a large meat distribution company – so we are blessed to be able to frequently indulge in meat) but this is one of our families favorite ways to eat Spaghetti Squash. It is a meatless dish (but could easily have sausage added for some meat but has plenty of flavor without) it uses mushrooms and squash from last weekend and onions (and squash if the week befores is already gone!) from this most recent Saturday.

A great side dish to this meatless entree is a nice big chopped salad, topped with tomatoes, avocados and any other veggies your family loves and dinner rolls!
