14year old memorycomes in handy

Who says food service jobs can't teach you something? While processing surplus mushrooms for storage(saute etc) I suddenly remembered my prep cook days at Perkin's.
Quick Cook Shrooms
~Mushrooms in a microwave safe container.
~ add herbs, salt, and a hunk of butter.
~cover with plastic wrap
~nuke for a minute to three
Voila, Shrooms in their own liquor butter herb sauce, ready to be served, added, fridged, or chilled and frozen

Granola

Making homemade granola. Found recipes that replace the cup of oil with a cupish of apple sauce plus a few tablespoons of oil, heated with blend of honey and syrups.
Mine is chunky applesauce, bloodorange infused oil, honey, cheap syrup... and Pomegranate molassses. Rolled outs, steelcut oats (quick cook),sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice , brown sugar.. In the oven now, smells amazing.
