Mountain LOVE!

We love the mountains.

The Adirondack Mountains, with its 46 high peaks, are stunning!
Don't you agree?

Breathtaking views.
Hey, where'd that mountain come from?
Well, we like all kinds of mountains here.  Including mountains of delectable food.

This mountain of deliciousness is brought to you via my kitchen by way of Christine at Jaz Creations!

I saw her blog the other day....and drooled.  Had-to-have-it kinda drool!!!  She made these babies.  I wanted to birth my own after nearly eating the monitor screen!!!  (you think I'm kidding!)

OK, one more shot of EC and our 9 yo on top of the mountain.  

Now onto the FOOD!!!!!!
EC bought these at our local market.  I love it when he does the shopping.  He always gets the biggest and bestest.  I'm Frugal Fanny and Improvise Ida!!!  
(that means I don't!)

Just to show you the size of these girls - I mean, have you ever seen an edible mushroom this gigantic?  Remember I'm nearly 6 feet tall and of Hungarian descent - so my hands are not wee little dainty ones.

Here's my version. (remember Fanny and Ida?)

Ground turkey, garlic - sauteed.

Onions, scallions, carrots, hard salami (ok, that's what we had...Christine is much classier. She used Bruschetta - ***which by the way is not to be confused with "prosciutto" which is what this nutcake thought when she read Christine's recipe days ago) - sauteed. 

Mix turkey and veggies, add feta.  (Ida here used feta instead of the recommended goat cheese!  Baaah!)

Filler up!!!!  (oops. sorry did I get saliva on ya?) 

And up and up and up! Sprinkle mozzarella on top....

...of this beautiful in oven at 350...and then dive in
peak first!!!

*** edited post - big time!


  1. Love the mountaing views, and the food looks mighty tasty Kolein! I LOVE mushrooms, yummy!

  2. I don't get it. Why do all the good cooks live over yonder and not in my own neighborhood? You know.. so I could be invited over and return the favor and delight you with my eclectic personality.

    These look awesome. And yeah. I saw them on Christine's blog too. Double ouch!! :) xo


  3. Oh yummy! I will have to go over there too and see how she made her. Yous look pretty darn tasty!

  4. Looks Yummy Kolein! I Love how you can use different ingredients! Like I said earlier we just used ground beef and salsa this past week! That was very good too.

    Oh and how I wish I had a mountain view where I am ... Texas is way to flat!

    Enjoy your dinner!


  5. Everytime I want to eat supper with you! and what views, so awesome! Lezlee

  6. Those mountains are beautiful! All of them.
    And I think after climbing that first set of mountains you deserve the second one (or two).

  7. Yummo!
    Definitely copy/pasting this recipe--we LOVE Portobellos!
    And especially feta cheese-
    you know what's good?
    Toast some bread, butter it, then sprinkle feta on it, it's one of our (not healthy) snacks.
    By the way, I have been, over the past few weeks, trying to comment on your posts, but my blogger acct. doesn't bring up your comment box even after I F5 it 20 times--quite frustrating! I just wanted you to know that I AM reading your posts! I love your ideas and adventures, just can't make my comment "stick". Ugh.
    P.S. Today I got lucky and got this box--who knows if it will post it. Sigh.

  8. Looks delicious! When I have time, I'm going to try this your blog, too. Will follow:)
