Bacon Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms with Mornay Sauce!

One of the hands-down best appetizers to order at Grandma's Restaurant is their Stuffed Wild Rice Mushrooms. When our 2013 Appetizer Contest winner Alejandra A. suggested Bacon and Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms, I knew we had an amazing opportunity at hand. Combine her recipe for stuffed mushrooms with Grandma's Restaurant's idea for a cheesy Mornay sauce over the top.

The BEST Homemade Stuffing I've Ever Had!

For the last four or so years, I have had the great pleasure of enjoying my mother-in-law's Thanksgiving dinner.  Every year, she seems to outdo herself with an evening tastier turkey, gravy, and stuffing than the year before.  After a couple of years of watching her, she showed me the secrets to her incredible recipes. 

Chicken fajitas with garden fresh green pepper!

My green bell pepper plants have finally produced large enough peppers for eating, so I came up with some tasty meals that could incorporate my garden fresh peppers. The first one was the steak sandwich. Then, considering my husband's inexplicable love of "Mexican" food and all things wrapped in a tortilla, I decided to make Chicken Fajitas!

Ham, Cheese, and Everything Egg Bake!

*Note: prepare the egg bake the night before you need it!

Growing up, I had never had egg bake. We made scrambled eggs, over easy eggs, deviled eggs, omelets, and used eggs for baking, but we never made egg bake. My mother-in-law, however, makes it on special occasions and it is probably one of my favorite breakfast foods!

Steak Sandwiches!

After visiting my dad's for dinner the other night, he gave us some leftover steak to take home. My dad makes the most amazing steak I've ever had. Leftover meat poses a small problem (at least for the picky of us): it never tastes quite the same as when it was freshly cooked. Now, my husband would have no issue with just eating the leftover steak and some grilled veggies like we did the first night.

Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup (even though it's summer, I still love soup!)

I love creamy soups! Cream of chicken, cream of mushroom, cream of kale even! They are all so wonderful! My love of soup used to be confined to researching restaurants who had some kind of creamy chicken wild rice soup, testing their soup, and comparing to my previous experiences. There were two restaurants around here that made incredible creamy chicken wild rice soups. However, the one close to my house only serves it sometimes...
