The summer is in full swing and our family is taking full advantage of the nice weather. Cooking delicious foods like these Creamy Mushroom Potatoes smothered in white Parmesan and garlic sauce, visiting friends and petting their chickens.

It’s kind of a big deal. Not for the chickens, they stopped laying eggs for some time after all the handling, but for my girls. They love all animals, so being able to hold a chicken was a lot of fun for them.

I am not even sure if the kittens or the chickens were more fun. These little babies are growing up around little kids, so they are used to being held and petted, and in fact willingly sat and slept on kids’ lap. Which is in stark contrast to our big, bossy cat who would rather sit under the table untouched.

Anyways, tell me what you’re up to this summer? What do you enjoy doing when it’s warm and sunny outside?

 

Mushroom Potatoes with Creamy Parmesan and Garlic Sauce 

Ingredients:  

  • 2 lbs little potatoes, or larger yellow/red potatoes cut into about 1 – 1 1/2  inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion
  • 3 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 – 1/3 cup white wine (Chardonnay) *optional
  • 1 – 2 cloves garlic, pressed/minced
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (use more if desired)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh flat-leaved parsley

How to make Creamy Mushroom Potatoes with Parmesan:

Thoroughly scrub the potatoes and rinse in running water. If using larger potatoes, cut them in half or in 4, to make about 1 – 1.5 inch pieces. Peel garlic cloves.

Place the potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Add about 1 tablespoon of salt. Bring to a boil and cook for about 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork.

If using larger sized potatoes that were cut in half or in quarters, add enough salt to make the water a little saltier than soup (lets say). Alsoo, take care not to overcook, so the potatoes hold shape in the sauce.

Drain the water.

While the potatoes are cooking, wipe down the mushrooms with a wet paper towel.

Slice the mushrooms into 1/4 inch slices. Peel & dice the onion.

To a skillet add couple tablespoons of olive oil, heat over medium high heat, add onions and saute until translucent and slightly browned. Remove to a different plate.

Add couple more tablespoons of oil, turn the heat to high and sear the mushrooms, stirring often for a couple minutes.

Add the wine to the mushrooms, deglaze the skillet by scraping any bits that stuck to it and cook until all moisture evaporates. Add the sauteed onions, cooked potatoes, pressed garlic, heavy cream, salt and pepper, you want to under-season at this point since the Parmesan will add more saltiness in the end. Stir. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Cook for a couple minutes until the heavy cream sauce reduces and coats the potatoes nicely. Add grated Parmesan and stir again.

    Marina,
    As always you come up with the most amazing recipes! Thank you for taking your time to share with us your amazing creations!
    You asked what we are doing this summer. Well, this summer, I enrolled my 6-year old daughter in a day camp from 1-5pm. In the morning we do devotional (read a short Christian story about a missionary / Christian kids) and Pray. Then, we eat and I do writing and math with her. My friend works at the Public School in NY and she said that there has been a study that shows that kids learn 40% of what they know in the Summer. So, I thought that I’ll take the full advantage of this Summer and see for myself. After that my daughter goes to the camp where they play outside for the full 4 hours. After she comes home, we eat and go to the park to swim or just go to the Splash Park that has sprinkles. We see families who’s kids are in a wheel chair have so much fun in the Splash Park. Usually older sibling pushes the wheelchair and the kids just laugh and have so much fun! Then,we come home, take a shower, relax, eat, color or cook. Then, my daughter reads, we pray and go to sleep. When we get an invitation to come to somebodies house to visit, we’ll schedule during the weekend or skip camp. Although, its seems like a low key, we like it, since my daughter and I have been sick 6 out of 7 months this year.

    Warm wishes,
    Tanya

    • Tanya, thank you for sharing your summer endeavors with me! Your daily schedule sounds full and fun – you’re a great mom for doing as much as you do with your daughter! I have very hard time sticking to routines so I really admire parents that can stick to a schedule and have their days as structured as yours is. It’s sad to hear that you have been sick so much this year though 🙁 I know all about sick (my younger one sick quite often) and it’s no fun 🙁

      Once again thanks for visiting my blog and sharing about your summer Tanya!

    Marina,
    I wanted to say thank you for sharing your beautiful girls with us. They are so happy!!!! My daughter too wants a pet but we live in a rental so we “borrow” neighbors dogs to play and walk. Recently, we were invited to this lady’s house and her cat had 8 kittens. Twice, we drove 45 min one way so that she could play 30 minutes with the kittens. They are a lot of fun!

    • Tanyusha,
      Kittens or anything small is always a lot of fun for kids. My daughters have been asking to go back to pet the kittens as well, and our relative also lives outside the city, so it would be about 30-40 minute commute, but I think we might just have to go there before they grow up.

    hi i love your blog but i was hoping maybe you can put up a BREAD & BUTTERED PICKLES CANNED RECIPE this summer? that be so awesome i always visit your blog & i even have my own binder printed of some of your recipes. especially the russian ones =).

    • Hi Lily, thanks for your sweet comment! To be honest I have only had the bread and buttered pickles from the store and have not made them myself so unless I try someone else’s recipe this summer and really like it, I am probably not going to post one.
      Nevertheless, if you like the naturally fermented pickles that are crunchy and just absolutely delicious, you should try this recipe here that I posted last year. This is the recipe I use to make pickles every year and they’re always a hit. In fact last year I canned 25 lbs and ate them within couple of months so I had no pickles for the winter lol, they were so good.
