Stuffed Mushrooms II
Mushroom Rice
Stuffed Mushrooms
About this Cook
I always loved to be in the kitchen with my Mom, watching her cook. As I grew older, I loved to experiment in the kitchen and loved to bake. Once I got out on my own... I realized just how much I LOVE to cook. Unfortunately, I don't get much of a chance to cook for OTHERS, but I love it still the same.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is Italian - mainly because that's what I love to eat. ;p I love to try new recipes though - I visit this site probably five out of seven days a week just doing random searches for recipes that sound tasty!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a "pot luck" type of family which has really helped me to grow with my cooking since I've been out on my own. I have the opportunity to add to the family dinners - and so far, have had great results! :)
My cooking triumphs
I decided to bring stuffed mushrooms (first time ever made) to my family Thanksgiving dinner. I didn't think anyone but my sister and myself would eat them; I came home with only seven left from a batch of 24!
My cooking tragedies
I had been "assisting" my Mom in baking cookies since I was able to walk & talk at the same time... I was probably around 10-12 when she let me bake cookies by myself while she went grocery shopping (I had been begging for days). I was making a double-batch and, it made sense to my oh-so-logical mind at the time, figured I then would have to double the length of time for them to bake! I realized my mistake when they started to REALLY burn...

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce
I found this to be a very tasty asparagus dish. I never liked asparagus as a child, and decided the other day to give it a "grown-up" try - this recipe caught my eye. I did add some left-over sauted mushrooms to it, as well as a couple of different random spices. I really enjoyed this dish!

Pesto Pizza
I really liked this pizza! I used the refrigerated pizza crust in a can (which is one thing I would do differently next time; the crust was not as thick as I would have preferred) and I used only one sliced tomato. I also added some chopped mushrooms and lightly sprinkled some onion and garlic powder on the top. I added just a touch of shredded mozz & sharp cheddar. I have to say... this pizza is not for everyone. I think that if I tried to serve this to most of the people I know (who LOVE their meats and cheeses), well, they'd probably only eat a square or two. Myself - I prefer my pizza sauce, but this was a VERY nice change for a very delicious pizza!

Mushroom Rice
Overall, this was a good recipes - nothing too original, but tasty. I used minute-brown rice; next time I will definitely use regular-cook rice. I added my own spice choices to it. It was tasty though!
