Welcome Back + Baked Mushroom Linguine

Hello there blogosphere! Are you there? It's me Passion Foodie.

It has been way too long since my last post.  And I absolutely have no good reason except pure lack of motivation.  Yea, I've been somewhat busy.  But that's not even an excuse and something I'm sure you don't want to hear.  Because we are all busy.  And this is supposed to be my outlet.  A chance for me, to share with you, what's been going on in my kitchen. 

So since we have established a friendship, albeit I have not done my part in the past couple of months, I feel comfortable in being completely honest with you.  There hasn't been a whole lot going on in my kitchen.  I have tried a few new dishes, cooked Thanksgiving dinner again and also participated in a few Bobby Flay style Throwdowns at work (I've currently won 1 out of 3 and I'm not settling for this record at all). But the one thing I haven't been doing is taking pictures.  And you know pictures are such an integral part of any food blog.  Well at least this blog.

But this is a new year, another fresh start (lest I remind you I've had a "break" before) and I'm ready to get back to it, if you guys will have me.  I don't want to make too many lofty promises since I still have a wedding to finish planning in the next few months (April will be here before we know it). But I can promise no more 3 month breaks. As one of my besties likes to tell me, "those cupcakes are very stale by now".  Gotta love friends.

So I'm going to get back in the groove with this Baked Mushroom Linguine.

If you love mushrooms, as Mr. Foodie does, this is the perfect dish for you.  I will warn you, this is not a quick, weeknight meal.  Think of it more like a Sunday dinner where you may have a little more time to spend preparing the dish.  It is a generous serving so you will have plenty leftovers for lunch and dinner and it is oh so tasty
