"This book took 2 years to create, we tested every recipe at least 2 to 3 times a week. I thought a lot about indulgent dishes, things like pizzas, pastas, chickens, things families would like. I wanted them to be easy recipes anyone could make in their own kitchen. I had my staff taste test and try to make the recipes themselves. I can confidently say, there is so much work and passion behind each and every recipe."
- Preheat a grill to 350°.
- Set out 4 (12 x 12 inch) pieces of aluminum foil on the counter.

- With a tablespoon, gently scrape the gills from the underside of the mushrooms.
- Spray the tops of the mushroom caps with cooking spray, and place each cap, sprayed-side down, on a piece of foil.
- Heat the oil in a large, nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat.
- Crumble in the turkey and cook, stir often, until starting to brown, about 5-7 minutes.
