Mushrooms have remained to be one of my favourite veggies for a long time. Some of my best childhood memories are going out into the beautiful pine forests of Kodaikanal and looking under the fallen pine leaves for fresh mushrooms. Those were the tasty portobello kind that were found there.
But for stuffing, the white button mushrooms are the best kind that could be used. Select the biggest mushrooms that you can get.
Stuffed mushrooms are a good appetizer and your guests will love it.
This easy to make deep-fried snack of tuna and potatoes with some spices is a perfect appetizer for your guests or a great snack for your children to pack for their lunch boxes.

Beat the egg in a small bowl. Dip each cutlet in the egg to coat ( one at a time ) and roll in the bread crumbs to coat completely.
Press gently with both hands so that bread crumbs will not fall into the oil.

If using fresh tuna, take about 250 gms of fish and cut into pieces and boil with water(use enough to cover the fish) and little salt and ¼ teaspoon of turmeric powder. Can try with other fleshy fish too.
It’s that time of year when everyone is busy in baking and cooking goodies for the Christmas season. Inviting guests and having parties is also a big part of this season. That’s when the traditional recipes come out; a turkey dinner is one of the common item for Christmas. Though turkey is a common thing, there are also many people who’d rather prefer chicken; one reason being that it takes lesser time both in preparing and cooking the chicken. So here’s a simple recipe for you to try this Christmas.
Some people prefer to use instant stuffing for the chicken, but if you’d like to make your own, I’m including the steps for that as well.

If you are in the middle of tough times today, look to God. The Bible says that Jesus is the Author and Finisher of your faith. He is the one who writes faith on your heart and then develops it to completion on the inside of you as you yield yourself to Him. Your part is to seek Him daily. When you give all your trials and troubles to Him, you will notice that the heavy burden that you carried all this while is lighter. It’s because He will carry them for you. So isn’t it time to give all your temporary situations to Jesus and prepare your lives for the free eternal life that Jesus offers?
