On the Menu: Mushroom Stroganoff with Herbed Pasta

I made this simple but elegant main dish again, last night. It was SO delish!😊

For a bit of a change, I used orzo in the herbed pasta. It worked out great.

Joe and I hadn’t eaten much during the day and ended up polishing off all of it. Suffice to say, snacks were cancelled in the evening !!😁 

If you ❤ mushrooms, you will ❤ this recipe.

Happy Cooking!

If you are looking for an easy and elegant supper entree that everyone (meat-eaters too!) will love, you may want to give this veggie version of classic stroganoff a try. Quick, delicious and added bonus: NO oven time…..great during these hot and hazy days of summer.

This recipe has been a real favorite from my cookbook, Not Just for Vegetarians. Hope you will enjoy it too.     🙂

I’m on a Salad Kick….

…..and the recipe below is one of my all time favorites.😊  A winner in one of my veggie recipe contests.

Last night I made Waldorf Salad, Potato Salad and Orzo Salad. We had a great dinner.

Hope you enjoy this reblog, do give the recipe a try, you won’t be sorry.

Happy Weekend,🌺🌻🌼

Popping Perfection!😁

Who Doesn’t ❤ Fresh, Homemade Popcorn?

But popping the perfect pop can be tricky.

I personally don’t like air popped popcorn. I think it’s rather tasteless. IMO, a little oil when making popcorn is worth the calories, along with a drizzle of butter to top.😉

The stovetop method (see link below) I tried recently yielded excellent results.

Follow each simple step to the letter and get ready for popping perfection.

The Unpacking Continues…

Autumn 2010 Nelson 014

After our recent move on Vancouver Island, we’ve been spending a LOT of time unpacking.

We had MANY, many boxes in storage, for years. Some even from my mom’s place. Slowly but surely, the end is in sight.

I love to giveaway things I no longer need and so far we’ve donated over 100 boxes of various items, to charity. Having garage sales just didn’t seem worth the time.

In -between unpacking and other commitments, we’ve been enjoying our new home and the incredible weather we’ve been enjoying so far this summer.

Mr. Cheddar is doing great too.

He hasn’t changed much through the years. People are always amazed that he’s 17 plus years and still so healthy and active!

Happy Week to All!😊

Spring FEVER has arrived even earlier than usual this year!

In spite of a very mild BC coastal winter. I’m still craving spring in a big way.😊

How has your winter been? It’s not over yet but hopefully spring will arrive sooner than later, this year.

I had so many hassles with my previous domain provider NAMECHEAP, that I finally gave up using the two custom domains I previously had registered with them. 

If you happen to be looking for a domain provider, avoid  NAMECHEAP!
