I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Roasted Garlic Mushrooms

These mushrooms are just like the ones you'd get in a good steakhouse.

I found the original recipe here 


but made a little change in it. Next time you BBQ a steak, try these on the side.

Roasted Garlic Mushrooms

1 lb Mushrooms cremini or white, halved lengthwise if large
3 T. Capers, whole
3 Large garlic cloves, minced
2 T. Olive oil
3 T. butter, cut into pieces
2 t. fresh lemon juice
¼ C. dry red wine
¼ C. Flat-leaf parsley, chopped

Preheat oven to 450°F. Put capers and oil in a 1 ½ to 2-qt shallow baking dish. 

Add in the garlic,  wine and ½ teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper 

Toss in the mushrooms and mix to coat.
Top with butter and roast, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are tender and golden and bubbly garlic sauce forms below, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and parsley. 

Serve immediately, with crusty bread on the side.

(You may substitute  white wine for red wine, or even red balsamic vinegar.  I like it best with red wine.  A teaspoon of dry oregano goes well too.)
