Ryan was practically a baby when we met in 2001. Just 19 years old and a freshman at USC, he moved to California from Oregon, seeking warmer temperatures, year-round sunshine, and a place where he could comfortably wear shorts and a t-shirt to class in the middle of January. Living a few blocks away from some of the best Mexican food in town and just a twenty-minute drive to the beach, Ryan quickly adapted to this harsh lifestyle. He had been in Los Angeles for 8 months when we first met at a recording studio, and a lot has changed over the last 18 years. Back then, he was more of a picky eater and didn’t appreciate foods like olives, tomatoes, and mushrooms—all of which he loves now. The recipe we are sharing today is something he definitely wouldn’t have enjoyed when we first started dating—in fact, to this day, he never orders mushroom burgers in restaurants since they’re often bland, rubbery, and disappointing. But this recipe is different. Prepared in a citrusy, garlicky sauce that is tangy and delicious, these marinated portobellos have converted Ryan, and might just make you a mushroom maven too!

If we were to travel back in time to Thanksgiving, November 25, 1971 and tell Abra Shapiro that in 2015, her stuffing recipe would be “blogged” about on the “internet” by two gay, legally married husbands using “digital” photographs that would instantly reach the entire world with a click of a button, she would think we were from another planet. Well, not only is this happening today, but her dish has been made consistently every Thanksgiving holiday since that rainy night forty-four years ago in Portland, Oregon where Ryan’s 21-year-old Aunt Kathy sat at the table and wisely jotted down the delicious recipe in between shared laughter, sweet potatoes, and red wine. This baked mushroom stuffing has been a family tradition and a warm and fuzzy memory since that day, and it is a pleasure to share as our third selection on the Husbands That Cook Thanksgiving menu!
