Spring Vegetable Risotto with Fried Egg

I know there are a lot skeptics out there that a meal without meat is hardly a meal at all. I BEG you…plead with you…to PLEASE try this recipe. I’ve made this every spring for a few years in a row now and every time I do I wonder how I possibly went a whole […]

Chicken Fricasee

I realize that a lot of people hate mushrooms and the fact that I make so many dishes with mushrooms is probably offending their very nature.  In fact, when I poll people, it’s usually about a 50/50 chance that person will either love or hate mushrooms.  Very rarely do I find people who are just […]

Quick Mushroom Ragu

Mmmmmmm…My stomach growling remembering this dish.   I came home from work one day, feeling defeated, and battling some sort of dreary freezing rain outside.  All I really wanted was COMFORT FOOD, and for me, comfort food is PASTA.

Goat Cheese and Wild Mushroom Pizza

*Sigh…* When I made this pizza, I couldn’t help but think of that part in Apollo 13 when all of the Astronauts get back to Earth safely.  They called their mission “The Successful Failure” in that the entire journey was one disaster after another, but at the end of the day, they were able to […]

Peppercorn Steak with Portabella Mushrooms

This meal was geared pretty much straight at my husband.  I’m pretty sure he could eat steak and mushrooms for every single meal.  Don’t get me wrong…I am certainly a fan of red meat myself, but I also like to work things like tofu into my diet every once in a while, which is a […]
