Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

stuffed mushrooms

select large white and portabella mushrooms for this appetizer or side dish.  prepare by lightly washing the mushrooms, removing grit, and centers.  place cap side down on a 1/2 sheet pan that has been lightly sprayed with olive oil.

next chop several stalks of celery and a small to medium white onion.  add panko bread crumbs, 3 tablespoons of melted butter, Parmesan cheese, parsley, sea salt, and ground pepper.  mix the ingredients in a bowl and stuff the mushrooms.  i usually have extra stuffing that i place around the mushrooms and bake along with them.

bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes until browned.  these mushrooms can be served alongside a variety of main dishes as a side vegetable.  they can even be used as a breakfast side on a buffet, or as an appetizer.
