Looking for that special recipe for a lovely Sunday lunch or special dinner. We have one for you: Spinach Ricotta Cannelloni with Mushroom Sauce. This dish screams flavor and deliciousness from the beautiful baked al-dente pasta right into that creamy spinach cheesy filling. Taking it over the top with a creamy white wine mushroom cream sauce. Truly a mouth-watering experience for sure.

Shepherd’s pie was requested but it’s not my favourite. Why not make a filling that I really like and top it with some mashed something or other and just call it a day? I really wanted something that was a bit spicy, like a Jamaican beef patty. My beef/mushrooms patty filling is the right consistency, it’s spicy and the family likes them as much as I do. There was no reason it wouldn’t work.
And that is how Shepherd’s Patty Pie was born. I took my usual blend and extend beef/mushroom filling and topped with it with mashed sweet potatoes to balance out the heat and everyone got what they wanted.
It’s the festive season and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than planning a date night with your beloved partner. Date night dinner with a lovely Mushroom and Potato Lasagna Stack for Two. The comfort of a layered lasagna with a twist of crispy and soft potatoes stacked with luxurious melted Parmigiano and Gruyère. The star of the show, plump, juicy, earthy-sweet, succulent mushrooms with backdrops of white wine, thyme, and rosemary. Talk about a showstopper and taste extravaganza. Absolutely delicious!
Happy Holidays Everyone!

Does the thought of brining, stuffing, and carving a turkey make you want to cancel Thanksgiving and order out? Put down the phone and pick up a meat mallet. This simple but elegant dish can be on the table in under an hour yet is worthy of the holidays. Whether you’re celebrating Friendsgiving or hosting a small-scale family gathering, tender turkey smothered in a mushroom-cognac sauce is always welcomed.
I used a pre-mixed blend of oyster, shiitake and crimini mushrooms. Still, the humble white button mushroom will rise to the occasion. If turkey doesn’t suit, try chicken breast, pork tenderloin, or even veal. After all, mushrooms play nicely with any thinly pounded white meat.
