As much as I love to cook, I’m a bit  intimidated by fancy recipes.  I don’t do a lot of gourmet recipes and I make no claims of being a chef. I tend to cook recipes that are very similar to what my Mom made when I was growing up. I may make a few substitutions to make them paleo or gluten free.  I may make them a little bit healthier than the original recipe. However, you definitely won’t find fancy French cuisine on the menu if you stop by for dinner one night.

Wild Mushroom Pappardelle Pasta with Mascarpone

I recently received several meals from Plated.com as part of this post.  That gave me the opportunity to try something a bit different.  Plated.com is a service that delivers everything you need to make a delicious meal to your door. They use local and seasonal produce whenever possible and source their meats from local, family-owned purveyors. They partner with responsible companies like Sea to Table to make sure that their fish is always fresh, and wild-caught when possible. Your recipes come in a 100% recyclable, biodegradable box. The ingredients are packed fresh and pre-portioned to cut back on waste.

Provencal steak

For our first meal, I chose a Provencal Steak with Purple Potatoes and Green Beans. This was very similar to the type of cooking I normally do and was a huge hit with everyone in the house. For the second meal, I stepped outside of my comfort zone and chose a Wild Mushroom Pappardelle Pasta with Mascarpone. In case you don’t know (like I didn’t), pappardelle are large, very broad, flat pasta noodles. It was absolutely amazing and everyone went back for seconds after I explained what pappardelle was to them!

  • 12 ounces wild mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/8 bunch parsley
  • 1/4 bunch chives
  • 1/4 cup white wine (I substituted organic beef broth)
  • 8 ounces pappardelle
  • 1 packet butter
  • 2 tbsp mascarpone cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Pecorino cheese


  1. Wipe mushrooms clean with damp paper towel. Chop & discard stems. Mince garlic. Rinse parsley & chop roughly. Discard stems. Rinse chives & finely chop.
  2. Heat 3 tbsp olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat. When oil is shimmering, add chopped mushrooms & cook until tender and golden brown, 5-6 minutes. Add minced garlic and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes more.
  3. Add white wine/beef broth to pan and scrape up brown bits from bottom with a wooden spoon. Allow to reduce by half, about 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat and set aside.
  4. Bring large pot of water to boil over high heat. When water is boiling, add pappardelle and a pinch of salt. Cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  5. Meanwhile, return pan with sauce to medium low heat and bring to a simmer. When sauce is simmering, add chopped parsley, butter, and mascarpone cheese. Stir to combine. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Add cooked pappardelle and stir to combine.
  6. Divide between 2 bowls. Garnish with grated Pecorino cheese and chopped chives. Serve

Not only am I not a chef, I’m not a neat cook.  I drop things. I wipe my hands on my apron. I spill things. I make a lot of noise. I don’t want to stress about the mess I’m making while I cook.  I want to enjoy cooking and experiencing the meal with my family. Thankfully I can eliminate any spills and stains from my apron, napkins or tablecloth with chlorine-free and color safe OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover.  Before you run your dishwasher, you can add OxiClean Dishwashing Booster to give your dish washer detergent a boost of cleaning powder and remove cloud film, spots and streaks that detergent alone can leave behind.

OxiClean for Laundry

OxiClean enhances your wash water pH to improve your detergent’s cleaning ability and contains special ingredients to help rinse soils away.  Depending on the stain, you can either soak the stain in water and OxiClean and then laundry or simply add OxiClean to your washer before you add the clothes for a little boost. You can also use OxiClean to help with stains on carpet, upholstery and hard surfaces in your kitchen or bathroom.

OxiClean Laundry Soak


OxiClean did a great job removing the stains on my apron. If you look very, very closely, you can see a faint outline where the stain was but you have to really search for it.

    I don't think anyone would be looking at your apron that closely. Besides, if you're wearing it again, you'll be getting it dirty again. Those meals look delicious, delicious.

  24. It says a packet of butter??  What does that mean?
    • Ellen Christian says
      The ingredients were sent in a kit so the packet was what they were sent. It was about 2-3 TBSP but you can adjust more or less for taste.
