EASTER CHEDDIE IS BACK!!!
Stop by my review blog to read our Easter post, including a special weekend treat from Mr. Cheddar!
Have a Safe, Happy and Healthy Easter Weekend!
Check out my new review for this eBook: Christmas Miracles, especially if you are in need of some hope and inspiration.
I really enjoyed the holiday-themed stories in this eBook.
In a world that often seems to have gone mad (just watch the news!!) it’s so easy to give up on goodwill, hope and miracles, big and small. But the world IS filled with all kinds of good people and wonderful things, we just need to be open to seeing and believing that’s true.
I wish you all… a magical and memorable holiday season!!
Hope everyone had a great summer!
I’m having a wonderful early autumn, currently visiting Vancouver Island and will probably be moving here soon too.
You can read all the details here:Autumn Update
It was a very hectic summer for us so the “chill time” we are now enjoying is much needed and appreciated.
I hope to be back to blogging on a more regular basis in the next few weeks. But for now, sending you all best wishes and thanks for your continued support of my blogs/books…it is most appreciated!

Where has 2015 gone?
For me, it seems like it just flew by, faster than any other year that I remember! Can you relate?
I’ve decided to stop blogging here at Veggies…and also at my poetry blog: My Poetic Path.
I will continue to post reviews on a regular basis at:
There is just not enough time to get it all done it seems, in spite of usually putting in 17+ hours, most days.
I am always on the go and this coming year I want to focus on the many creative projects I have in the works (or in mind) that I get the most joy and satisfaction from. Blogging as we all know, can take up a lot of time, especially with 3 blogs as I’ve had for many years.
I will also be setting up a new blog at some time in the future, focused on my books and writing pursuits. But for now, it’s time to take a break from most blogging to recharge, regroup and redirect my time and energy.
I wish all my readers the best of everything in 2016.
It’s going to be a wonderful year, I just know it! 🙂
Happy New Year
All the Best from Me and Mr. Cheddar
Cheddie and I are busy promoting his new kindle book right now.
Hitting the rink a bit too. 😉
Will be taking a bit of a break from blogging until the New Year.
We Both Wish You:
A Magical, Memorable Christmas
A Furrrrbulous New Year!! 😉
Mr. Cheddar is now a published feline! 😉
Mr. Cheddar and I are very happy to announce the publication of his first ebook:
Mr. Cheddar’s Meowsings!
Kibbles of Wisdom from a Wise and Witty Feline
Here’s the description of what this furrrry new ebook is all about, from the Amazon site:
- advice for the lovelorn (applicable for felines and humans)
- dealing with difficult neighbors (only humans, of course)
- kibble quality control (never, NEVER let it slide)
- disciplining humans (they can be taught, with time and patience)
- litter box humor (snort…)
- napping etiquette (there is a right way to do everything)
- grooming suggestions (gilding the furry)
- aging disgracefully and loving it (heh, if you’ve still got it…)
Happy Reading and Week from:
Me and (published feline) Mr. C!!! 😉
I noted this new FREE knitting collection of bags and purses, in my inbox today from Knitting Daily.
I just ♥ that basketweave one! 🙂
(last one at the end of the top row)
Free to download and they don’t send a lot of junk mail afterwards!
What are you knitting right now?
Happy Knitting and Weekend!
PS: Mr. Cheddar will have a very special announcement to make, in the next few days. 🙂 Stay tuned!!!
He’s soooo excited and so am I! 😉
I ♥ BEETS! 😉
And the simple marinated beet salad (see recipe below) featured in my cookbook:
and is one of my fav ways to prepare and enjoy them. 🙂
Beet and Fresh Dill Layered Salad
A flavorful marinated salad, especially good to make when garden dill and beets are at their peak. Keeps for several days, covered in the refrigerator. A perfect side dish with all kinds of main dishes. Adds a brilliant color contrast on your plate too. Serves 6.
12 medium fresh (preferred) beets: precooked, peeled and cut into thin circles (or use equivalent amount of whole canned beets with no salt added, thoroughly rinsed and drained, then sliced)
1 medium red Bermuda onion, thinly sliced in rings
3 -4 T. chopped fresh dill-weed
Red Wine Marinade:
1/3 C. extra-virgin olive oil
5 T. red wine vinegar
1 teas. Mrs. Dash Original Blend Seasoning
1/2- 1 teas. sea salt
½ teas. freshly-ground black pepper
In a large bowl (that has a secure cover) layer 1/3 of the sliced beets, topped by ½ of the onion rings, then ½ of the dill-weed. Repeat layers, ending with the last 1/3 of the beets on top.
Combine marinade ingredients in a jar and shake thoroughly. Pour over vegetables, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Shake container gently to re-distribute marinade evenly before serving, especially if storing for a longer period of time.
Last night, I made this beet salad, along with an orzo salad for supper. It was soooo good. 🙂
I also like to serve this with my: German Sauerkraut Feast (click to enjoy that slow cooker recipe).
If you ♥ beets too, you might want to give this one a try! 😉
