    I have a shiitake mushroom log that produced one mushroom a few weeks ago. I shocked it again last week and it froze (I live in Milwaukee, WI) outside. It’s now thawed, but there is white mold on the both ends of the log, but no signs of mushroom growth…is this normal? Also, right after the shock, I saw some green mold, but cut that off. What do I do now?

    I’m making a mushroom(shiitake) soup(not creamy) tonight with vegetables and I’m wondering, what herbs or spices would be good for it?

    How about pasta or fish? The only slow cooker recipes I have are for soup, stew, or roasts/ whole chickens

    My friend (passed away :( ) used to make this awsome mustardy sauce that he would put on steak… i know it had garlic in it and he would cook it in a pan… anyone know what it could be?

    I know this is a local question, but I LOVE the panang beef curry from the Thai Cafe restaurant in Tracy, CA and would love to make it at home. It is #18 or 19 I think, has a creamy peanut buttery/red curry sauce with bell peppers, thai basil and onions – so yummy. I’d appreciate any help, thanks everyone!

    What is an easy and healthy way to cook mushrooms? Which is easier: Cooking them on the stove or on the grill? Thanks for answering!

    I have 2 halves of bone in hams, 1 New York strip (sliced), 1 T-Bone steak (sliced), and about 2 or 2 1/2 cups of cut up turkey meat. Looking for ideas for dishes to make with all this leftover meat from the holiday dinners that I have frozen.

    I’m a mom looking for a few good recipes…..I’ve tried most,but it seems that the best recipes I’ve tried have been family hand me down recipes. So got any good food recipes to share? I’m able and willing to try easy to hard recipes. I would perfer easy recipes, but at this point my family needs to eat something new besides hotdogs and chicken.

    I was thinking about making a big delicious steak or a turkey with a creamy sauce. And for desert maybe a large cream and chocolate cake, help me decide what to make and what ingredients and tools I need.

    Some, for example the Pandaroo brand taste smokey. Does everyone get that taste with the reconstituted shiitake mushrooms?

    I am thinking of making steak for tomorrow night’s dinner but I would really like to know of a delicious sauce or side dish that would go perfectly with steak. I’ll probably make some kind of potatoes (baked, mashed, etc.), and I’m thinking of maybe a mushroom or cheese sauce. I have the image in my mind (potatoes on the side, steak on the other side, with sauce poured over the top) … so I just want to actually create it!
    Thanks for your help :)

    either chicken breasts, round steak, or cube steak. I have a ton of those things. Anything else you have that sounds good would be nice also! Thanks

    I mean like super simple. I have a newborn and cooking for my veg husband is usually pasta and some sort of sauce. I’m sure he is growing tired of it.
    actually a salad sounds like a good idea. any fresh ideas on one instead of just lettuce, tomato, etc. ?

    I cook herbs, sprouted quinoa, sprouted rice, shiitake mushrooms, diced onion, in a thin uncovered stainless steel bowl over a candle for about 4 hours. The candle is there to avoid cooking at a high temperature and thus going over the foods’ labile points, and to gently cook the food. Is this method as healthy as or even better than steaming?

    Whats your favorite homemade breakfast? I have a friend visiting from out of town, and was thinking of making a rather lavish breakfast for her from scratch. Bonus points if you provide the recipe for the idea!

    My husband bought a pork loin, and I have no idea what to do with it!! I don’t enjoy cooking, so I don’t want something too painstaking. Do I roast it? Do I need to marinate it? Sauce?

    Okay, so my work group is throwing a party and we are to make and bring our own food. No prepackaged cookies, etc. So what are good dessert/dinner recipes? Like, your favorites or whatever? Please if you read this, respond. I need as many recipes as possible. Thanks!

    dishes will be great..I am getting married and my b/f who I haven’t lived with yet, likes big filling hearty meals..But we both work. so they can’t take all night to make…

    Heck…I only know a handful of recipes in general, so in actuality(?) any and all kinds of recipes will be welcomed….

    ps…There are no picky eaters

    My husbands birthday is this weekend and i want to surprise him with a great dinner. i know he loves steak so i thought i would make him steak but i cant find a good recipe or an easy one. it cant have any alcohol in it cause i’m under 21 so i cant buy it when i go to the store. maybe something with mushrooms, blue cheese or onions. oh and nothing with to much vinegar because he hates vinegar.
