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

The Farmer

I trust that, by now, you have all seen the commercial heard round the world. You know, the one that stopped all action and silenced a nation when the soft rumble of that voice drifted into living rooms on a Super Bowl Sunday. Yes that commercial . Paul Harvey's voice, unmistakable in its sincerity and beauty, spoke of a people whom work from sun up till sun down with no recognition. He spoke of a people whom care for their baby animals and pour their blood, sweat and tears into helping them grow. He spoke of a people, so foreign to many in the world today. He spoke of a people whom many have forgotten. He spoke of a people; my people. The farmer. I am a fourth generation farmer married to a fourth generation farmer. Together we are raising the fifth generation. We don't do it because its easy, it's not. The hours my husband spends working rival that of any doctor or lawyer I have ever met. We don't do it because it's profitable, some years it&#

Simplify

I have been wanting to simplify some areas of my life for awhile now, but I just haven't taken the time do it. I already feel like I live a pretty simple life and there are aspects of it that I really love. But there is more that I want to do to improve the way I am living and the way that I am raising my kids. Over the next few weeks, I am going to be sharing some of the things I am already doing and some other things I want to implement into my lifestyle. Let's quiet the noise of the world. Let's tame down the chaos. Let's find a starting point and just jump. It starts at home. Whether you are single or married or have a house full of kids. Peace begins at home. How you treat yourself and how you treat others. We have to start somewhere on quieting all of the noise and giving ourselves and our loved ones a place of rest. A place to feel safe. A place to call home. So lets start small. First up: Let's enjoy a meal with the people we love. You can m
