Astellar muffin tin pan eggsperiment.

The great #astellar muffin tin pan poached eggsperiment.
one egg + kale + spinach + 1/2 slice turkey + shaved parmesan.
Put 1.5 teaspoons of water in the bottom of your muffin pan.
Crack an egg on top of water.
Add ingredients.
Bake @ 400 F for 8-10 minutes.
Pop out with a spatula.
Drain any excess water.
*I have gold touch muffin pans that are nonstick. This recipe with that kind of pan uses no oil! Amazing.

Egg is runny. Just the way I like it. I put my little egg bundle on a toasted double fiber English muffin.

Astellar stuffed portabella mushrooms

I marinated the portabellas in olive oil + balsamic + soy sauce.
Put them on a sheet pan in the oven for 350 for 10 minutes.
In a separate pan I sautéed onions + bacon + zucchini + panko breadcrumbs + thyme + goat cheese + a nob of butter + s+ p. Got it browned and set it aside to stuff the mushrooms.
Stuffed the mushrooms and baked for another 10 minutes.

Astellar roasted acorn squash

Fall is in full force in our house. I’m constantly looking for inspiration. I found a recipe on Pinterest and adapted it to my liking.
Acorn squash + olive oil + balsamic + local honey + goat cheese + s + p.

Roast acorn squash in olive oil + s + p @ 400 degrees F for 20 minutes.
Mix olive oil + honey + balsamic to create a dressing for squash.
Flip squash over and dress the squash and bake for a remainder of 10 minutes.
Serve on a platter and sprinkle your goat cheese and fresh parsley on top.
Enjoy!

Back from vacation with lots of inspiration.

My husband realized how tired I was after our vacation and went to my favorite independently owned grocery store, Diablo Foods, and bought groceries for us tonight. He got scallops and asparagus and this is what I came up with. Follow me on Instagram: @stellarmich or search #astellar on IG.
