    AND I DON'T EVEN EAT MUSHROOMS! August 20, 2003 from Melissa: I made these Marinated Mushrooms last weekend to take to a niece's college graduation party. What a hit they were! I don't care for mushrooms myself, but can always recognize a good recipe when I see one! I had at least 8 people make a point of coming up to me to tell me EMPHATICALLY how much they loved the mushrooms. They would say something like "I love those mushrooms you made" and I'd say "Oh, thanks, glad you like 'em." and they'd say something like "I mean I REALLY like 'em." It's not that often that people go out of their way to comment TWICE on the same dish! I'll definitely be making this one a staple of my "party dishes"!  -  29 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I added just a bit more brown sugar to this marinade because it had a bitter aftertaste. A dash of orange juice could give this marinde an added touch of sweetness. I thought the presentation was wonderful, with the colors of the red and green pepper. Next time, though I am going to cut the peppers into long shoestrings to make the jarred presentation more dramtic. This is the perfect thing to take to a Holiday gathering. They look and smell very inviting.  -  17 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
