Grandma’s Mushroom Rice

January 7, 2013 Side Dishes

My Grandma Peggy used to make the most amazing mushroom rice. It’s the sort of unsuspecting dish that doesn’t exactly get a lot of fanfare when you announce you’re making rice for dinner. But when you start cooking, the aroma will creep through every nook of your home and send folks scrambling to the dinner [...]

Truffle Mushroom Parmesan Deviled Eggs

November 19, 2012 Side Dishes

  My friend Tiffany and I have decided to begin a new tradition of long lunch Fridays. Each month, we’ll meet up for a leisurely luncheon at a new restaurant (or an old favorite) where we’ll indulge ourselves, maybe even with  a cocktail.  So very “ladies who lunch.”  Last week, we tried Lincoln, a relatively [...]

Easy Skillet Lasagna with Mushrooms and Basil

August 20, 2012 Casseroles

When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to make a vegetarian version. Lasagna is so comforting, but a total pain to make. This cast-iron skillet version using no boil noodles is a cinch. I’ll never go back to layering again. Ingredients: Adapted from How Sweet Eats 1 Tablespoon butter 1 Tablespoon olive oil [...]

March 12, 2012 Dinner

Every year a few days before Christmas, we have a soup dinner with friends of my in-laws, the Masons. It’s one of my favorite new traditions since marrying into my husband’s family. Ms. Mason is an impressive cook. Each year, she prepares a smorgasbord of soups for us to slurp down. And she always whips [...]

Mushroom, Leek, and Rosemary Soup

February 6, 2012 Dinner

  Please forgive that there aren’t as many pictures in this post as usual. I made this soup a few weeks ago for “ladies’ night” and got so carried away with chatting and sipping wine that I sort of forgot about my camera. Oops! Initially, I contemplated a mushroom and leek tart, but as the [...]

Lentil, Quinoa, and Mushroom Sliders

January 15, 2012 Dinner

I’ve been working hard on a new recipe for veggie burgers. I usually make them with chickpeas, but my husband doesn’t like the texture. They tend to be somewhat dry. But he likes lentils, and lentils have a smoky, almost meaty taste. And the texture is ideal. Makes sense to use them in a veggie [...]
