Guest Post: Barley Salad with Buttery Mushrooms and Herbs

Hi everyone! My name is Renée Kohlman and Sweetsugarbean is my food blog that 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 devhttp://www.sweetsugarbean.com/eloper, I’m lucky to have turned my passion for all things food into a career I love. My second cookbook, Vegetables: A Love Story, is currently at the printers and I so can’t wait to get my hands on the first copy! The publication date is set for October 5th, and I’ve started to count down the days! The last year and a half has been very busy, and I’m so proud of the work featured in my second book baby. In case you’re wondering, yes, there will be a chapter devoted to Mushrooms and I can’t wait for you to see those delicious recipes. Free time (remind me what that is again) includes Netflix, reading, and spending time with my guy Dixon and three cats.

Guest Post: Sautéed Mushrooms with Rapini

It’s important to have a variety of side dishes in your arsenal for whipping up on a weeknight. This side is one of my favourites to whip up to go alongside a weeknight barbecue. I always have mushrooms in my fridge and I’ve always loved this combination of mushrooms and rapini, whether stirred into a pasta, a soup or on their own. Call me crazy, but this could even work as a burger topping!

I love the play between the umami of the mushrooms and the bitter bite of the rapini and it works perfectly as a quick side dish. I finish mine off with a drizzle of sesame oil, but this can be optional!

Guest Post: Mushroom Shepherd’s Pie Potato Skins with Mushroom Gravy

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!
