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!🌻

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 !.

HELP!! 😟My Links Have Disappeared.😢

I was doing a little blog cleaning last week, removing some old links from my sidebar, etc…

I don’t know how it happened, but now, as you can see, my blogroll is no longer visible (for all the links I had, further down on my sidebar).

The links ARE still there, when I check on the DASHBOARD, but they are no longer visible at this blog.

Yes, I did check that each one is still ✔ as visible and that each one still has a category .

And I did post this issue on the Forums, unfortunately, the answer I got was just basic and didn’t address what actually happened here.

I DID remove one category while working on this and that is where I think the trouble started. Now I don’t know what to do.

😟😟😟

If you’ve ever had this happen here at WP, please let me know how you fixed it.

As you know, there is no WP Support anymore, except for the Forums, so I don’t know what to try next.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!!

The Joy of SOCKS!😊

I’ve done a lot of knitting and crocheting over the years.

Shawls, blankets, sweaters, gloves,hats…..

I’ve loved every minute of these creative pursuits.

But there is nothing quite like making REAL socks for the first time, for the ultimate knit satisfaction!😊

Unfortunately, many novice knitters in particular are very intimidated by the steps involved in making that first sock.

That’s where a really good how-to sock guide, book, site or video can be invaluable.

sock book

Unfortunately, one of my favorite how- to sock guides by Sandra Harris, is NO longer available at Amazon.😔

But there ARE plenty of resources out there for the wannabe sock knitter. It is a lifelong knitting skill SO worth learning.

 

RAVELRY is a great place to start.

Sign up is free and easy, if you’re not already a member. A fun and worthwhile place to visit, with a multitude of resources, for knitters at all levels.

 

And with 🎄 Christmas 🎄 only weeks away, this is a great time to start thinking about those perfect handmade 🎁🎁.

Socks Made With ❤ Are  SO Special!

Apple 🍎 Time Has Arrived!

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!!😏

What’s Going On Amazon?

Has anyone else been experiencing really BAD customer service from Amazon recently?

amazon

I use the Amazon Canada site but I’m beginning to wonder if this is a company wide issue.

Delivery dates are hardly ever accurate and the representatives I’ve been emailing with recently about a variety of issues leave much to be desired. They don’t even answer the actual questions I’m asking, just some ” copy and paste” usually unrelated to the actual problems.

Even their Executive Office is slipping. That used to be a final resort that worked but even they seem to be just going through the motions now, and not serving their customers as they should.

Right now, I’m having an ongoing issue with a reseller order I placed for a laptop. I am not exaggerating, so far I have written at least 15 emails about this, LONG detailed emails, and still not resolved.

I ended up ordering another laptop from HP directly. Got a great bundle deal, including a new printer and no hassle!!

If Amazon doesn’t wise up soon, I am not going to order anything but e-books from them. THAT they can’t screw up (or so I’m hoping).

Please let me know if you are also noting a big slide in Amazon’s customer service. They aren’t the only game in town.

Mr. Bezo….Are YOU LISTENING??😕😔😪

Mr. Cheddar and J.J.

Hope this brings a smile to your day!

Suffice to say, J.J. was pushed off, pronto.😊

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.     🙂

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.

I’m thinking I’ve got the ingredients for this rice one too.

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?

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.

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!😊
