Recipe For Gorgonzola Mushrooms

Those of you who are regular readers of my blog will know that I really need routine. And part of that routine has been writing down my recipes every night. I used to keep a food diary and it evolved with this blog to a recipe diary. I am so far behind in putting the recipes from my notes onto my blog that I have in fact stopped jotting down recipes every night. This has been quite liberating as I can just cook comfort food. And, Dave is also cooking which has been wonderful for me. It has been a mini time out. With that in mind, I will share with you the fact that I made this dish for Gorgonzola mushrooms on the 25th of February! My mid year sojourn will at least mean that sometime in the near future I will be blogging ‘current recipes’ and not ones that appear to be out of season, or with photographs taken in haste.

  1. I love Gorgonzola cheese, its bought in Italia also with a fresh mix of marscapone. Creamy Deluxe! These look delicious and I love the added ingredient of pesto. Buono!

  2. Hey Tandy….it doesn’t get better than cheese and mushrooms! 🙂 🙂

    Do you have any idea how long a bottle of pesto will keep for once opened? I always tend to end up throwing mine away which is such a waste..

    1. I make my own and it lasts quite a long time. It seems the store bought ones only last a few days. I will post a recipe soon for a great coriander pesto that is easy to make 🙂

  3. These look divine Tandy. I am always looking for new ideas to serve up (disguise):) veggies for the kids. I am going to try this one on them. As for Dave and I, we love anything with gorgonzola. Delicious. PS. I always love reading your blog.

    1. Thanks Ana – I have a few good tricks for kids and vegies which I am going to share when I catch up with my blogging 🙂
