Asparagus with Mushrooms and Onions

So I found another awesome food site. Well actually I didn’t, a friend of mine on Facebook did, Thanks again Nicole or NR! Here it is: check it out! I have found SO many amazing recipes on here! You will LOVE IT! The recipe I am about to share with you is one of many I found from this food site!

and its so perfect as it has Asparagus = LOVE

Mushrooms =LOVE, LOVE

and Onions= LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE So this is the perfect Jamie Recipe!


one asparagus bunch (a bunch that you buy at the grocery store), with the tough ends cut off
1/4 teaspoon salt

Onion & Mushroom Topping:
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 Vidalia onion, sliced
1 cup baby portabella mushrooms, sliced

1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Juice from half a lemon
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
salt, to taste
Ground pepper, to taste

Heat 1/2 tablespoon olive oil in a pan over medium heat, then saute the garlic, onions and mushrooms for 3-4 minutes until the onions start to turn transparent and the mushrooms start browning slightly. Remove from heat.
Boil 1/4 cup water in a large pan and blanch the asparagus for 1 minute. Then remove from the pan and place on a panini press (this is my lazy and quick way of getting grill marks without having to fire up the outdoor grill). Let the asparagus cook on the panini press for about 1 minute.

For the vinaigrette, wisk together all of the ingredients in a small mixing bowl.

To serve the dish, spoon the onion and mushrooms over the asparagus and then drizzle the vinaigrette over everything. Serve immediately and enjoy!




Hello World! My name is Jamie! But a lot of peeps think I am Crazy! So some call me Crazy Jamie! The name originally came from my mother in law, she nick named me crazy nena, which means crazy woman in Spanish and well I always loved the name and well its stuck and I feel it fits me quite well. So I went with it! My friend Stacey’s kids also call me Crazy Jamie. Not Jamie, but Crrrrazy Jamie! Why be just Jamie, when I can be CRAZY JAMIE! So welcome to my world! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Food! I probably think about food more than a man thinks about sex. Well maybe not…But I think about it a LOT! I am always looking for recipes and inspirations and things I want to cook! I collect recipes and I LOVE Pinterest! Greatest place to get recipes! That’s where I get all mine! I am 35 years young and have been married to my Puerto Rican Hubby Normando Luis. Going on 5 years this year! We got hitched on 8-8-08. It’s just the two of us and always will be. I don’t want kids and yes he is ok with that! I like it just the two of us having fun, sipping wine, cooking, walking around naked and being goofy and on the go. It’s how we roll, and I LOVE our life! Why be like everyone else! I LOVE to be different! I have always been the odd one out, or stood out, or stood alone and always the loud girl. I am me 100% me all the time! Cussing, goofy, tons of energy, picture taking, pink hairs, crazy, outgoing chic! Some don’t like it, but that’s ok, not everyone can like someone so awesome! Did I mention I LOVE food, all kinds! My favorite food is Sushi, then Italian! I also LOVE learning how to make foods from my hubby’s homeland of Puerto Rico! I will travel there someday! I also LOVE Cajun/creole food! I think I was a Cajun in a past life! I also LOVE to make homemade pasta and my most favorite tomatoes are San Marzano tomatoes! How I show love to friends and family is by cooking for them! I put my heart and soul into my food and cooking! It’s my passion and you can see, hear and taste it! My favorite place to be in is my kitchen cooking! I love to hike and have lived in Colorado my whole life. I don’t think I could live anywhere there wasn’t mountains! I also LOVE the dry heat! I don’t handle humidity too well. Along with cooking and taking pictures and hanging out with my hubby, I also have a side salsa business I do as well as a cupcake business too. I love to stay busy! Why rest? I can’t sit still so I just keep a moving anyway I can! So this is me and my world and welcome to it!
