The Best Grilled Portobello Mushroom Burgers I set out to make a great tasting grilled portobello mushroom burger that even a meat lover would love. The mushrooms are marinated then grilled and topped with melted Swiss Cheese, grilled red onion, tomatoes, spinach, and avocado – yum!! The only thing my husband said would make these burgers better is adding bacon... maybe next time. I wanted to give the mushrooms a meaty flavor, so I marinated them with balsamic, soy sauce and Montreal steak seasoning.

Steak and Cheese Stuffed Pretzel Bites | Perpetually Hungry The very first time I ever attempted to make pretzels was after a long day at work a couple of years ago. I was tired but had been browsing pictures of pretzels all day and I just craved one. They surprisingly didn’t take much time at all and definitely satisfied my craving. They were gone in a day. While the classic pretzel shape is something that everyone loves, I found that the pretzel bites I made were gone much faster; I’m pretty sure it had to do with their size and the fact you could just pick one (or two or three) up passing by and pop them in your mouth. I have since made pretzels dozens and dozens of times and I knew I wanted to make pretzels for this blog, but I needed something special about them to share. The cheese gets so melty and gooey and oozes out a little and the steak gives these the best flavor. As always, not only are these pretzel bites incredible when they are first out of the oven, but they freeze well to boot. Steak and Cheese Stuffed Pretzel Bites

Lasagna Timpano I went to see tUnE-yArDs on Monday night with some friends, and as always we wanted to cook a meal that somehow related to the show we were heading to. Sometimes this is hard to do, but other times it seems to come naturally. Finding culinary inspiration in Merrill's lyrics seemed like it would be tough, but my sister knew what she wanted to make without hesitation. Start by making a lasagna crust. Finally got it together. Now it's easy, just start building the layers! Alfredo sauce with some salami goes first. After 3 alfredo layers, I switched to pesto. A cheese only layer, just for fun. Tomato sauce is last. It's important to press things down as you go. In my opinion, it can't be lasagna without at least a little ricotta! I painted on some alfredo at the end as a glue. All sealed up. After baking. The flip is always a scary moment. Unveiling. A thing of beauty. Cutting is another tense event. Glorious! I still can't believe how great this came out and how awesome it actually tasted!
Avocado Fries Oh dear. I never should have done this. This may be one of my biggest mistakes all year. Can’t take it back now. So we’re totally enjoying our grilled avocados, but my husband innocently asks “What else can you do with avocados?” Sigh…. At a buck fifty a pop (at least around here), avocados can easily run up quite a tab on the grocery bill. So, consider yourself warned.

Zucchini Cheddar Drop Biscuits Hiiiiiii, you cute people, you! You’re looking mighty fine on this sunny Monday morning. Have I told you that lately? Well you dooo….I have some biscuits for you. Wait… Before we continue with talk about zucchini and cheese and butter, can I get emotional on you for a second? Warning: This might get awkward. Apologies in advance, but I have to comment on Jennifer Perillo. And then…something magical happened: everyone did. Alright, my tears are wiped…can we talk about butter now? When I was at the farmer’s market yesterday–my Sunday routine–the zucchini and squash looked so bright. I added some cheese for nutritional value. Since I was way paranoid about the zucchini releasing too much water, I squeezed (drained) it in a cheese cloth, transferred it to a bowl, added a little salt and then flour. I was all out of buttermilk…(actually I just forgot to pick some up from the store), so I used milk instead. Hey, can we all just ignore the pencil in the left hand corner. Love you, per usual.
