This cheesy mushroom potato bake is a wonderful one-dish way to enjoy a hearty meal when you’re feeling like enjoying something a little more substantial than a salad. This rich and feeling comfort food casserole is a wonderful way to wind down from a stressful day at work. The salty bacon, meaty mushrooms, filling potatoes, and ooey-gooey melted cheese really make this recipe a true keeper.

Asiago-Crusted Roast Lemon Asparagus

6 Comments | Written on January 23, 2015 at 10:59 am , by


Lemon season is in full swing
, and we can’t stop finding new ways to use the citrus. One of our new favorite preparation methods for asparagus involves the humble fruit. This recipe is not only beautiful, but tastes delicious. The asiago crust adds a wonderfully nutty flavor to the side dish, and this recipe pairs perfectly with a broiled chicken breast or roast salmon.

Feel free to modify this recipe however you’d like. The juice from a blood orange in place of the lemon is fantastic, and green beans also work well in this simple and elegant side dish. If you’d like to try another type of cheese, we like a combination of Parmesan and Romano cheese as well.

Cheese Ball or Cheese Log for Entertaining

I think I know your first question…  ”Are those walnuts RED?”  Yes!

I came across them at my grocery store and was so intrigued, I just had to try a sample.  They are not dyed or genetically modified, rather created using natural methods of grafting Persian red-skinned walnuts onto larger and creamier English walnuts. Red walnuts are only red on the inside, the tree and the shells look just like your typical English Walnuts.

This recipe can be rolled into a cheese log or cheese ball, whichever you prefer!  I used the red walnuts, rolled them into a log and will call it my “Red Carpet Cheese Log” for an Oscar get-together this weekend.

Easy New Year’s Eve Appetizer

1 Comment | Written on December 27, 2012 at 5:00 am , by

In Spain, it is considered good luck to eat 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight as we ring in a new year.  Some say, for every sweet grape you eat there will be a good month in the coming year, and for each sour one a bad month.   You can even make a wish with each one you eat!

This simple appetizer recipe is a beautiful way to present a round of brie for a New Year’s Eve celebration.  Serve with crackers or apple slices, and, of course, a glass of bubbly!   This year, may all of your grapes be sweet as we welcome 2013.  Cheers!
