….let me count the ways! 😉

I know there are people who don’t like chocolate but I’m NOT one of them.

I L-O-V-E all things chocolate!!!

How about you? Are you a chocoholic or can you give it a pass?

These days, if at all possible, it’s organic cocoa and chocolate, as my first choice.

You can read more about why choosing organicchocolate/cocoa is the best way to go here and here.

I have a lot of cooking and baking planned for the next couple of weeks, with chickpeas to use in a couple of the recipes.

I’m a big fan of chickpeas.

I use them in all kinds of recipes: soups, stews, curries, hummus…

their nutty rich flavor and the unique texture they add to dishes too.

And they are sooooooo good for us! 😉

There are many health benefits derived from eating chickpeas, you can read more about that here and here. 

On the menu for supper tonight:

Slow Cooker Veggie Curry

And to add to this week’s snacks with crudites, crackers…

Fresh Rosemary Hummus

Both recipes are featured in:

The Groovy Green Kitchen: Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker

Do you like chickpeas?

What’s your favorite way of using them in recipes?

Happy Cooking! 🙂

Lest We Forget

My thoughts are with the families and friends of veterans, this weekend.

And most of all, with the veterans (here and passed) who have served so proudly and given so much.

Thank you for your service and your sacrifices.

Hope this brings a smile to your day and Happy Weekend.

On the Menu: Potato Scones

These scones are my favorite way to use up leftover mashed potatoes.

So yummy and delish!😊

I made a batch this past week to go with soup for supper. No leftovers after that.😉

This has been a popular recipe download for years, here at Veggies….

Hope you enjoy some (sweet or savory) real soon.

🌻Happy Weekend!🌻

VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS

These scones are absolutely delicious, melt-in-your-mouth good!!!😊

I have now tried them as a vegan-friendly version, after being inspired by a post on the popular mainstream cooking blog:  Pinoy Cookthat featured this recipe and some gorgeous photos too….

I have included options for making them sweet or savory, vegan or not. I hope you will enjoy them too. I look forward to hearing about your results. PS Please excuse the less than pristine albeit clean, oldie but goodie…. pizza pan in my ‘action shot’  it actually looks worse in the photo than it is !.

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

Happy Weekend,🌺🌻🌼
