BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn food blogger recently won an award for a delicious mushroom dish.

Chanie Apfelbaum, of Crown Heights, created an alternate cheeseburger recipe using Portobello mushroom instead of meat.

She submitted her recipe to a contest sponsored by the Mushroom Council and won second place.

The food blogger and chef says this is only the beginning. She wants to keep cooking and growing her catalog of recipes from her Brooklyn home.
