Elise's Baby Bella Mushroom Stroganoff

I think that we all have a handful of recipes that are our time tested favorites.  This is one of mine.  My mom made Beef Stroganoff for us when we were kids, so this is one of those recipes that emotes home and comfort and warmth and love.  I craved it when I was pregnant with all three of my kiddies... even when I was sick!  The truth is, it always sounds good to me.  So here is a culinary hug from my kitchen to yours.  ENJOY!

8 oz. baby bella mushrooms, washed and sliced
1 yellow onion, halved and sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cube Edwards & Sons Not Beef Bouillon + 1 cup boiling water
1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1 tablespoon cornstarch + 2 tablespoons cold water, mixed
1/3 cup tofu 'sour cream'

1.  Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat and saute the onions, garlic and mushrooms for 10  minutes.
2.  Add the bouillon/water mixture, worcestershire sauce, tomato paste and ground mustard and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes.
3.  Stir in the 'sour cream' and then the cornstarch/water mixture.  The sauce should thicken up at this point.
4.  Serve over rice or noodles of your choice.  I served mine over rotini pasta.



Such delciious comfort food for sure!! Great recipe!!!
This looks great! I have been craving comfort food lately. I made a mac and cheese recipe last night that totally bombed, stroganoff is just as warm and yummy as mac and cheese.

Ground mustard in Stroganoff? That's a new one. I'll have to keep it in mind for next time.

I LOVE the ground mustard in it. It's what my Great Aunt used in her Stoganoff.
Sounds & looks delicious! Great recipe for winter comfort food for sure:)

I think I'll make this tonight. What is ground mustard? Just regular mustard??

reneeB - You can find ground mustard in the baking section of your grocery store, where the spices are. You could possibly substitute Dijon Mustard, but I think that ground would be best.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for sharing this great recipe! The baby bellas are delicious in this, and I agree with other reviewers that the ground mustard is a nice touch.

One note of caution...if you are a strict vegan, make sure your Worcestershire sauce does not contain anchovies! You can buy vegetarian Worcestershire at most health food stores, but I have also found that some of the cheaper varieties (like the kind at my local dollar store) don't contain anchovies.

Brandi- Great note on the Worcestershire! I am so glad that you liked this recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Licorice Lemonade

I am always on the lookout for good black licorice.  It's one of those things that I like to have in my cupboards for when I need a little something sweet.  I thought up this lemonade in attempts to use up the lemons on our tree and satisfy my love of licorice.  And with the temperature here pushing 110 degrees Fahrenheit, an ice cold glass of anything, really hits the spot!
Lemonade Starter
Ingredients 2 1/2 cups water 1 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon zest 1 cup fresh lemon juice
Directions 1.  Mix water and sugar in a pot over medium high heat until sugar is dissolved and set aside to cool. 2.  Once the water/sugar mixture has cooled, add remaining ingredients, and stir. 3.  Store mixture, covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Friday Night Camp Out, Gourmet Tin Foil Dinners

We decided to go camping this past weekend on a whim.  I wanted to keep it close to home, so we set up camp in our backyard.  I wasn't feeling up to packing everything up and using a potty that wasn't my own... I've gotten really lazy in my old age... plus, my kids are young enough that I can get away with it.  I used to be quite the outdoors woman in my college years.  I almost majored in Recreational Therapy, which will come as a shock to many who know me now.  I did try to make our camp out as much like REAL camping as possible, so we lit our fire pit, set up our tent and  I made these yummy tin foil dinners, which could easily be taken and made on a REAL camp out.  The kids loved cooking them and gobbled them up!  After our tummies had their fill, we just sat around the fire, telling stories and looking up at the stars until bedtime.  I have to say, it was a great use of a Friday night!

Chive And 'Cream Cheese' Smashed Red Potatoes

It seems that on every cooking competition on TV, pureed this, and foamed that, are all the rave.  I don't get it.  All I know is, as Moto Moto the Hippo from Madagascar says, "I like 'em chunky"... at least when it comes to potatoes... and babies.  Here is one of my favorite ways to make them... potatoes, that is.  Super easy and amazingly delicious!
Ingredients 2 1/2 pounds red potatoes, washed and cubed water for boiling salt to taste 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives 4 ounces Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
Directions 1.  Boil the potatoes in a pot of water for 10-15 minutes or until they are tender.  Check with a fork. 2.  Drain the water and mix in the 'cream cheese', and chives and stir with a large spoon, breaking up the potatoes as you mix.  You could use a potato masher, but like I said, "I like 'em chunky". 3.  Salt to taste.
