Several months ago I was tasked with bringing an appetizer to a party. I scanned the refrigerator for ingredients and came up with these mushrooms. While I wrote the recipe down as I was making them (I always do this), I didn’t photograph them for a post.

So, this weekend, I made them again so I could share them with you. They are really great and I hope you will give them a try!

I started cooking when I was ten years old. For me, the process of cooking, from inception of a dish, to the execution, to the washing of the pots is sheer delight. I am now retired from a business I still own, in partnership with my husband. I used to work six days a week and still cook every night. Now, I'm gardening, still cooking, always having fun and hoping to share my joy with you. Thank you for reading...and commenting! P~
