Michele, I hope the kids feel better and that you stay healthy!
Here, I had the exact opposite of Vera's--a good, greasy, cheese pizza. No salad or anything tonight, just lots of pizza!
Good morning PA Baker
I used dried cranberries, which I plumped in a bit of sauternes, on the stovetop. I roasted the hazelnuts, removed the skins, and chopped them finely with the cranberries. To that mixture, I added one anchovy (for the salt flavour and the oil content, and to compliment the nutty flavour of the hazelnuts) also finely chopped. I added a small amount of goat cheese to give the filling a creamier base, and a small amount of unseasoned bread crumbs. Sorry I don't have exact measurements...I was creating as I went along. I used baby bella mushrooms for their earthy flavour, knowing the filling was quite hardy in assorted flavours and textures. Then I popped them in the oven for about 15 minutes.
