Hi everyone! My name is Renée Kohlman and Sweetsugarbean is my food blog I’ve been writing for ten years. I live in beautiful Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where I happily whip up delicious creations in my little green kitchen. Being a chef as well as a food writer and recipe developer, I’m lucky to have turned my passion for all things food into a career I love. I’m in the final stages of putting the finishing touches on my second cookbook: Vegetables: A Love Story, and it will be released in the fall of 2021.
We have guests in the kitchen! Loreto & Nicoletta of SugarLoveSpices are sharing their new take on a comfort food classic.
This recipe is a fun play on the classic Irish shepherd’s pie. All the lovely ingredients of this comfort food nestled into beautiful potato skins. It’s cheesy, it’s luscious, and most of all, scrumptious. The addition of the mushrooms in the meat and gravy, adds such a wonderful deep flavour. Kids and grown-ups alike will love this dish. A great way to get those veggies in!

To me the perfect steak must have some sides and sautéed mushrooms is our go to at AngryBBQ.com. The great thing about sautéed mushrooms is how easy and quick they are to make. Follow this step by step recipe to take your next steak dinner to another level.
You really can’t go wrong with serving mushrooms as a side. Different types of mushrooms offer different nutritional benefits; but for the most part mushrooms in general are a good source of antioxidants, beta glucan, B-vitamins, copper, and potassium.

I love nothing more than a great potsticker and if you buy the dumpling wrappers from the store, they are super quick and easy to make. You have the option to make my tried and true, partially whole wheat wrappers from scratch, if you are up for a bit of a challenge or you can just buy premade wrappers from the store. Look for round wrappers that are about 3” in diameter as any smaller and they get finicky to work with.
Pulsed mushrooms provide a great, meaty texture and as we all know, mushrooms are umami bombs that can stand up to a bit of spice. Once you start using Gochujang, you will want to start putting this Korean fermented red chili paste, in everything – it’s savoury, sweet and spicy all at the same time. I use white button or crimini mushrooms and pulse them in the food processor until they are coarsely chopped – just a few pulses will do it.
We have a guest in the kitchen! The Brunette Baker is sharing her recipe for this scrumptious dip!
This dip would be a wonderful addition to your holiday appetizers. Super simple to prepare, creamy whipped feta topped with roasted garlic mushrooms and tomatoes is a festive dish that will be sure to wow your guests (or immediate household this year) and have them coming back for more.
