Last month, we told you about one man’s effort to clean up his community. That means picking up trash wherever he can find it. This month, he’s gone viral. We talk with Craig Faunce about what inspired the effort and how we can get involved.
We’re getting into the Christmas spirit with some sweets sounds of the season. We’re getting those sounds from Harpist, Joy Slavens. She’s performing “Silent Night” and “Silver Bells.”
What made you smile this week? Perhaps, it was a trouble-making tree or zooming with Santa Claus or learning who the winner of the Delmarva’s Neediest Roof contest was? There were so many good moments that happened this week. We’re reliving them all in todays, “All That is Good.”
A historic hub located in between Talbot and Queen Anne’s County with fantastic flavors, one-of-a-kind items, and festive fun…can you guess what it is? We’re talking with Rhonda Corder with the Old Wye Grist Mill, about a “Limited Crowd Christmas.”

This year with holiday entertaining taking on a whole new mindset, these fill-ya-up Secret Ingredient Stuffed Mushrooms should be tops on your “must make” list. You see, by using U.S. Farm-Raised catfish as our secret ingredient, it keeps these super moist, packed with protein, and holiday special.
What You’ll Need
- 3/4 pound U.S. farm-raised catfish fillets
- 1 1/2 teaspoons seafood seasoning, plus extra for sprinkling
- 1 pound Baby Bella mushrooms (about 18 to 20)
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
- 3 scallions, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Place catfish on baking sheet and lightly sprinkle with seafood seasoning. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until fish is firm in center; let cool. Gently flake catfish and set aside.
- Remove stems from mushrooms and set aside. Place mushroom caps on baking sheet that has been coated with cooking spray again.
- In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, Swiss cheese, scallions, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, remaining 1-1/2 teaspoons seafood seasoning, the crushed red pepper, and Worcestershire sauce; mix well. Gently stir in flaked catfish.
