If you're using a thin pan you might want to use a griddle or skillet with a heavier bottom along with a lower temperature.

Very gross! The ash/cigarettes might be cute served over little mini cheesecakes or graham cracker lined mini tart pans with pudding in them as a topping? Or even sprinkling the crushed cookies in the bottom of ash trays, topping with pudding then dusting the top to cover it all over. It would make it more filling and could be used as a sweet dip for apple slices or cookies too.

Back on the subject of mushrooms!!

I make my own bread and if you want a recipe for it send me a message...

PANINI's....if you dont have a panini press your missing out you can buy one at wal-mart for 20-30 bucks and you'll use it every night of your life I swear...ok maybe not every night but yea >_<

What you'll need a flat bread like Fociccia or any bread for that matter I use my crusty sun dried  tomatoes and kalamata olive bread.

Pesto= pine nuts or walnuts, basil ,olive oil ,salt ,sugar ,and I add garlic but thats me I make a lot and freeze it since its one of the best sauces to freeze and wont change in color texture or flavor.

Take your  portabellas and put them in a bowl with dried basil ,thyme ,oregano and balsamic vinegar let it marinate over night.. next day pat them dry and grill ( make sure to remove the gills the reason for this and in most recipes is because the gills when they come in contact with liquid turn everything black I usually save the gills and turn them into mushroom oil, but thats another story.)

Now the fun part!

Take your bread and cover with pesto, next add the mushrooms I also add spinach and roasted bell pepper to mine. I also eat cheese still so I eat goats cheese on mine my mom likes mozzarella on hers but if you dont like cheese then dont add any  or  I hear that soy cheese is wicked awesome I just cant seem to give up my real cheese YET:).

After you assemble your sandwich place between the panini grill and press down allowing everything to melt together, I always server mine with a small bowl of soup...but again thats just me.

Other panini's and wraps I love to make--

1.artichoke hearts, grilled zucchini, spinach & creamy herbed feta cheese
2.spicy tofu, roasted onions, red peppers, zucchini, spinach & garlic aioli*
3.Wrap I usually use the spinach wraps-kalamata olive relish, avocado, tomato, cucumber, red onion & herbed feta cheese
4.Wrap-braised tofu with carrots, cucumber, red onions & peppers in a spicy Thai peanut sauce
5.Wrap-hummus with carrots, sprouts, tomato, lots of cucumber, red onion & tahini
6.Wrap-lightly spiced "chicken", artichoke hearts, grilled zucchini & red pepper alouette**
7.Also sweet potatoes lightly grilled with beets and other veggies is killer on a sandwich

*Aioli is suppose to be a strong garlic mayo but I add other things to mine at times like lemon or pepper
**Alouette is a type of spread able cheese ...I sometimes use Borsin as well or in place of or not at all lol

For summer time drinks I make rosewater lemonade it's really good ^_^ I also freeze it into popsicles and eat it instead of ice cream..

And for soup I make a coconut curry soup most of the time its extremely hearty, tasty and no matter how much I make theres never any left to freeze

Sorry if my post was a little too detailed I finished culinary school about a year and a half ago and Im use to having to write things in detailI just left out real recipes and actual methods just for quick ideas!! Hope you enjoy!!

No recipe, but a quick note for those who don't own a panini press or don't have the space for one more gadget.... Heating two skillets will work as well. I use two old cast iron skillets from my father. Put the panini or wrap in the bottom of one and place the other heated skillet on top and let the weight press the sandwich.
