Hello, everyone at What’s Cooking with Ruthie, it’s Amanda from High Heels to Hot Wheels! I sure have missed being here with you all, but have been a little bit pre-occupied with life with a new baby! He sure is sweet, though, and we are truly enjoying every minute as our new family of four especially since he started sleeping 8 hour stretches!!!! Oh, the little things!

Speaking of life with a baby, my dad has an old saying “I feel like I’m busier than a one-armed paper hanger” and no truer words have ever been spoken. Because of all of that, there is little time to get super creative in the kitchen, so while I have never been much of a leftover person, I am now. Maybe not so much “leftovers” as make something I have already made work for another night in a different way and that is exactly how this recipe came about. I made Greek quinoa recently and wanted to change it up a bit to serve it again and decided to stuff the mushrooms in the fridge and glory be to cheese, anything is better when topped with a little cheese.
