A Baby Shower {Recipe: Special Stuffed Mushrooms}

Many of you know the very generous and talented Amanda from I Am Baker and I Am Mommy. Amanda has become a dear friend over the past year. Even though we have never met in person, we “chat” almost everyday with a group of other wonderful blogging friends. Amanda has provided support, friendship, laughter and love to our gaggle of friends. Now, it is our turn to shower her with some love!

Amanda is expecting a sweet baby boy in the next couple of days – her 4th kiddo! We have come together as a virtual group, since we can’t all meet in person, to throw a baby shower for her. It won’t be the same as getting to pat her little belly or “oooohhhh and ahhhhhh” over tiny little baby diapers and clothes, but hopefully Amanda will feel our hugs and love through the internet waves. We can’t wait to “meet” I Am Baby Boy Baker and hope that you’ll visit the other shower participants to see what everyone is cooking up to welcome him into the world! (Make sure to scroll to the bottom for my contribution to the shower… Special Stuffed Mushrooms!)

  17. Hi Kristen,
    What a cute and clever idea to host this baby shower. All the cooks here are so talented! I have to say your photo is so pretty with the mushrooms, I love the tone of it. I ran into Amanda’s blog only a few weeks ago and fell in love right away, I even have my Ma hooked on her cakes. I have no idea how she bakes and decorates all those lovely cakes with 3 kiddies and one on the way, I think I would be found face down in my cake at that point! Hope all is well and hey I enjoyed doing the Cooking Connection- it was really fun.
