As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

A Recipe For Mushroom Lovers

Bekah and I both love mushrooms. So when I knew we were going to be on our own last weekend, I bought a box of criminis knowing we would use them for something.

The "something" turned out to be Mushroom Toast. If you don't like mushrooms, feel free to click away. But if you do, then make yourself a promise to cook this...soon! We ate well last weekend, but we both declared this to be THE meal. Oh my.

~ inspired by this recipe @ Angry Chicken ~
serves two

4 slices of crusty French or Italian bread, toasted
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup diced yellow onion
10-ounce box of cremini mushrooms, sliced
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese

Heat oil in medium frying pan. 
Add onion; saute until onion is transparent, about 5 minutes.

Add mushrooms to pan; saute an additional 10 minutes.
(If pan gets dry, add a splash of oil.)

Stir in cream and rosemary. Heat through.

Spoon over toast. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper and grated Parmesan cheese.

Ooohh and aaahhh as you eat this delectable concoction.
Plan when you'll make it again.
(Because you will want to eat it again.)
(If you like mushrooms.)

Most people have definite opinions about mushrooms. Are you a mushroom lover or hater?


  1. I am a mushroom lover, Cheryl! So I will be making this soon. Looking at the ingredients tells me this is a winner. That asparagus on the side really makes it a meal. It's so nice that you and Bekah have the same taste in foods and can enjoy special meals during special times together. ♥

  2. This sounds like something I would make when my husband is out of town. it looks dreamy. Yes I'm a mushroom lover and could eat a whole meal of just mushrooms. But I didn't them until I was in my mid 20s. Go figure. Thanks for a good recipe idea!

  3. My daughter is the only mushroom lover I know. I just pinned a chicken mushroom something so perhaps I'll evolve. It looks like a wonderful dinner for you and Bekah to enjoy whenever you have those rare "just the two of us" meals. That's pretty special!

  4. I am a LOVER of mushrooms...will eat them on anything I can...and do! I always have a fresh stash in the fridge. Thanks for sharing this delicious looking recipe!

  5. Oh yes! Three out of four of us would eat this up lickity split! How can you go wrong with those ingredients! Thanks for sharing...

  6. I don't mind mushrooms, but don't go out of my way to eat them. I am expanding my palate these days, so I just might try something like this.


  7. HUGE HUGE mushroom lover over here. Eat them in every way I can, but I have never tried this. I will be now as it sounds wonderful! Thanks for the recipe!

  8. I love mushrooms and I will be sure to try this recipe. Looks like a wonderful meal that you and Bekah shared!

  9. I love mushrooms! This sounds delicious. What fun to share such a meal with Bekah.

  10. This looks scrumptious and the recipe has so many of the things I like. Rosemary and Parmesan cheese somehow go so well together. The Man-of-the-House loves mushrooms and mushroom soup.

  11. The photo is gorgeous and I absolutely love mushrooms. I'll take a few more spears of asparagus, please. It's also a favorite. :-))

  12. Now that looks scrumptious! I like mushrooms and enjoy them in various dishes. Your mushroom toast looks so inviting I'll be suggesting that to hubby, who really loves them, as a lunch suggestion. Maybe even today.

    What a special treat for you and Bekah!

    wishing you glimpses of heaven in unexpected places...

  13. This sounds amazing! I will have to share my mushroom turnover recipe with you!

  14. yUm. this will be an excellent Meatless Monday type supper for my hubby and me. thank you for sharing your recipe. ;)
