Slow Cooker Stuffed Mushrooms

Slow Cooker Stuffed Mushrooms

Baker’s Man and I both love my Stuffed Mushrooms recipe, but I was wondering if there was another way to prepare them.    I decided to see if it was possible to create Slow Cooker Stuffed Mushrooms.    The result was wonderful.  It was different than the original version in spite of almost identical ingredients, but it was still delicious.  It’s good to know that if my oven is otherwise occupied, I can make stuffed mushrooms in my slow cooker.

Perfect Grilled Vegetables

Perfect Grilled Vegetables

Simple to make, grilled vegetables are loaded with the flavor of summer.  These vegetables are extremely versatile, and depending up on your choice of seasoning, they can be made to be the perfect accompaniment to a variety of meat entrees.   Of course, there is nothing quite as delicious as these grilled vegetables, so you’ll want to eat them by themselves, too. Since I was grilling pork chops coated with a Cajun spice rub, I opted for Cajun seasoning for these vegetables.  I tend to treat all of the vegetables basically the same, when seasoning a batch for dinner.  Only […]

It was too simple. The unbelievable part is that these mushrooms were made with just 3 ingredients—breakfast sausage, mushrooms, and cream cheese. That’s the entire list of ingredients, and in six simple steps, you have stuffed mushrooms. You can […]

Lemony Celery Salad

Lemony Celery Salad

This salad made me think of a silly riddle that I read many years ago. It was one of three or four riddles that were in a little book inside a box of Cracker Jack’s.   For some reason, I still remember it.  Here’s the riddle. Question:  How did the farmer pay his bills? Answer:  With his Celery (Salary) I heard that groan, but it’s OK.  The riddle is pretty bad, isn’t it? My mother claimed that I referred to Celery as Celery/Salary for weeks after.  I don’t think I  fully understood the riddle when I read it which is probably […]
