Stuffed Mushroom Recipe

If you never cook another dish in your life, I simply ask that you make this one dish and then you may die in peace having cooked the most perfect dish ever.

Maybe I am being dramatic, maybe I'm not. I guess you'll have to taste it and see for yourself. 

I made this dip again for Thanksgiving recently. My local grocer couldn't get in Fontina, so I substituted mozzarella and monterey cheese. It was a major hit. 

I had the herbs left over, so I got to thinking about what I had in my fridge and what I could make to go with the herbs. 

And thus, this dish was born. 

Seriously amazing. 

Mouth watering. 

Divine happiness. 

So dang, stinking good, I did not take a single picture before we devoured them. 

Just make them. 

I am being bossy. Try them, then you'll understand why. 

Have I made myself clear? 

Good. Let's get started. 

Best Stuffed Mushrooms... Ever
Ingredients
1/2 tsp thyme finely chopped
1/2 tsp rosemary finely chopped
1/4 cup roughly chopped or shredded parmesan
2 oz softened cream cheese
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella 
1/4 tsp minced garlic
A pinch of salt and pepper
Mix everything together in a small bowl. 

Clean an 8oz package of Mini Bella mushrooms. (I have read you are not suppose to wash mushrooms, it makes them rubbery, so I just rub mine with a paper towel to knock off any dirt.)

Pop off the stems. Then place the top part of the mushroom down on a sheet pan covered in tin foil, so the bottom is upwards like a little bowl. (If you have mini muffin tins, they work great to hold the mushrooms! Just set the mushrooms in the muffin tin upside down and place on a tinfoil covered sheet pan to catch any spills.)

Place a tablespoon or so of the mixture in each of the mushrooms. Some mushrooms will hold more than others, adjust accordingly. 

Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 12-15 mins, until cheese is bubbly. 

(As a disclaimer, I never measure when I am cooking. I just mix till it looks right. So the measurements are approximates. Don't be afraid to experiment. Use what you have, make it your own!)

And that is it.

Make it. 

Enjoy it. 

Let me know what you think! 

Happy Holidays!

Changes

I was cleaning today, which gave me time to think, and thinking always leads me here. The house is 'weekend messy', so decided to clean my floors, because The Nester says if your floors are clean the rest of the house feels clean too, even if it isn’t.  I have found that it is pretty good advice, so when everything else feels chaotic, I clean the floors. Of course for me, cleaning the floors also means picking up the toys, shoes, clothes, etc. so that I can even begin to vacuum, which naturally leads to a cleaner home as well.  While cleaning up I began to think about how this blog has evolved over the years, from a desire to write like The Nester about home, into what it is now.  I started writing this blog when I was dreaming of building a new home. Then plans changed, life took turns, and we ended up in a home so different than I expected and so perfect for our family. Somewhere along the way I realized that home wasn’t in the walls that went up or in the co

From My Christmas Wish List to Yours!

One of my favorite stores, West Elm, has now opened a special section called The Market. It specializes in kitchen, garden and personal care. Lets just say I am in love. If I had unlimited resources to spend in one store to do a total overhaul on my house, it would be West Elm, and now with the new Market, I am in lust too. So here are a few of my favorites. Check it out and maybe you'll get some great Christmas ideas for someone on your list. Or maybe my hubby will see this and get a great idea for me! Hint, hint! Enjoy! Incredibly large, amazing cutting board . I've seen these boards doubling as art hanging on the wall, then they take up no storage space! Cast iron Dutch oven . Great for one-pot meals. These glass jars come in varying sizes. I'm thinking they would work well for brown sugar with that rubber seal. I would definitely get plenty of use out of a cheese knife set during the holidays and all year round. Copper measuring spoons . Seriously? Fantastic

We're Buying A House!

Batten down the hatches and hold onto your hard hats, we are going to be fixing up an old farmhouse ! We made an offer on the old house and it was accepted! I cannot wrap my head around it or even begin to believe it yet, but it's real and this is actually happening! The legal paperwork is being drawn up and I will have sooooo much more to tell you all soon. For now though, I can only tell you how incredibly, undeniably, one hundred percent excited I am. (Terrified too, we're going to be loading a ninety year old building on a moving trailer and trekking it across the countryside, but more on that later!) Oh my, I just want to scream and tell you every little detail, but I will hold off until everything is settled and signed on the dotted line. I do want to give a little shout out to the owners, I'm pretty sure they might see this, and they know who they are. "Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. This has been my dream for a really long time, and I truly
