  1. Delicious! So glad lazyme suggested I try this good! And it is so quick and easy to do. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
  2. Delicious! OK I must confess, I got sliced mushrooms so mine is a little different, but no less fantastic. I sauted the mushrooms and shallots in butter and then transferred them to a plate and topped them with the crumble4d Stilton. I popped the dish in the microwave for a minute and it melted to a tasty blue heaven! I made this for ZWT #6 and I'm a Quisine Queen!
  3. These were great! I made it as written for 2 servings. I liked the ease of cooking in the microwave. I will make these again when I need a quick appy. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 6.
  4. I made these after a Lazyme told me how wonderful they were and boy was she right! I used a little less of the cheese since my mom and dad don't care for Blue Cheese too much. They loved these and we ate them for a post dinner snack for Father's Day! I think they would be good to take to someone's house if you were assigned to bring an appetizer. Just do the final heating in the micro for 2 minutes and hot appetizers without using the oven! Thanks Twis. Made for ZWT 6 by an Unruly Under the Influence.
  5. Wow!! These are sensational! I used 6 mushrooms to make an appy just for myself and wish that I had made more, lol. I mounded the stuffing mixture up high on the mushrooms but of course the cheese melted into the butter in the bottom of the dish. I ended up dipping the crusts of bread (from making the breadcrumbs) into the melted cheesy sauce. This is TDF twissis and is going into my Best of 2010 cookbook right away. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6.


I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
