Apple 🍎 Time Has Arrived!

cropped-046.jpg

One of the many things I ❤ about autumn, the harvest fruits and vegetables at their peak, and all the yummy recipes to use them in.

Apples are way up on that list!😊

The recipe (see page two) for:

 

AppleSour Cream, Crumb Pie

 

is one of my🍎 favorites that I hope you enjoy soon.

I’m making one of these oh so rich and yummy pies, later today.

Definitely good but definitely NOT for a dieting day!!😏

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!

VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS

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.     🙂

Popping Perfection!😁

Who Doesn’t ❤ Fresh, Homemade Popcorn?

popcorn-movie-party-entertainment

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.

On the Menu: Beet and Fresh Dill Layered Salad

I  ♥ BEETS! 😉

And the simple marinated beet salad (see recipe below) featured in my cookbook:

The Groovy Green Kitchen I: Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker,

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! 😉

Happy Cooking!
