Mushroom Saltado : Idaho Potato Plant Based Lomo Saltado

Mushroom Saltado : Idaho Potato Plant Based Lomo Saltado

I would like to give a special thank you to the Idaho Potato Commission for sponsoring this post! All opinions and recipe are my own. 
Mushroom Saltado plant based version of Lomo Saltado using Idaho Potatoes.

I’m talking all about Mushroom Saltado, the incredible plant-based version of the meaty Peruvian Lomo Saltado. It’s been a while since a single dish has brought me this much excitement. The taste is on another level of delicious with a complex array of flavor, and comparable if not better than it’s carnivorous family member. Mushroom Saltado is made with stir-fried red onion, yellow bell pepper, tomato, portobello mushrooms, and sautéed in a spicy aji-amarillo sauce. The entire dish comes together when the stir fried veggies are mixed with crunchy Idaho® Potato French Fries! Traditionally served with steamed rice (ideal for soaking up every last drop of sauce) and drizzled with fresh lemon juice. You’ll want to lick the bowl clean, I promise.

Vegetarian Breakfast Toast Table

Vegetarian Breakfast Toast Table

This fall indulge in a glorious vegetarian breakfast toast bar ala Presley's Pantry.

Today is officially the first day of Fall, and September is national breakfast month. I’ve been waiting patiently for the cooler weather to grace us and make it’s presence known. There is something about that crisp cool air that guides me to my kitchen and begs me to turn on the oven. Once the oven is roaring there is almost a 99% chance I will be baking one of my homemade breads.

Tadin Rose Buds Make Delicious Cheese Tea!

This post is sponsored by TADIN Teas. All opinions and recipe for Rose Cheese Tea are 100% my own.Tadin Rose Buds Make Delicious Cheese Tea. Enjoy with a cookie for a tea that taste like cheesecake!

People are not really sure what to expect when you say cheese tea. I think it throws them for a loop until they realize exactly what it is. Imagine a beautiful sweet tangy cousin to whipped cream or the no-bake cheesecake batter that you wish you could drink out of a straw. Picture that creamy thick deliciousness on top of Tadin’s Rose Bud tea. Makes sense, people pair cheesecake with fruity flavors all the time. (more…)

Moist Layer Orange Cake With Buttercream Frosting has been the topper to my month of August and my headache. I have made the cake pictured above a few dozen times from a recipe I had jotted down on a torn piece of paper and casually placed amongst my books. Most recently my handwritten recipe has gone MIA, which threw me into a total panic, because a dear friend was requesting it. I kept asking myself why didn’t I ever put this recipe on my blog? How in the world did I misplace one of my treasured recipes? It was back to the development drawing board for me. To be honest, I had to make 3 different versions of my Moist Layer Orange Cake With Buttercream Frosting until it tasted exactly the way I remember the outcome tasting of my handwritten recipe. Here it is… never to be lost again. (more…)
