I ♥ cookbooks!
I have a large collection of all kinds of cookbooks. Many of them supplied by publishers and authors over the years, as review copies. I spent one afternoon last week, going through some of my favs from the cookbook shelf and picked out some recipes from all of the ones shown here. And yes, two of those are mine. 😉
I made a new version of ratatouille last night from Alive Magazine, which was quite good and from the slow cooker, ♥ that too.
Today, I’m making: Dilly Potato Salad from the Sensational Salads cookbook. I’ve made that one before and it’s delish. Lots of dill and other yummy ingredients in this one.
Here’s a link to that recipe from a previous post, if you’d like to try it.
What’s on the menu for supper at your place tonight?
And do you have a favorite ‘go-to’ cookbook?
Happy Cooking! 🙂
My new cookbook: The Groovy Green Kitchen II. Simply, Super, Supper Soups is coming along nicely! 😉
I’ve still got a lot of typing ahead of me, formatting and a few more recipes to develop. But well on the way.
In the meantime, I thought you might enjoy a ‘sneak peek’ recipe to enjoy now:
If you didn’t think gumbo could be good without shrimp or meat added to it, think again.
This version is truly: YUMMY GOOD! 🙂
What a perfect time of year to enjoy a bowl of hearty, stick-to-your ribs gumbo.
And this one is oh so easy, from the slow cooker!
Stay tuned for the second volume of The Groovy Green Kitchen, which I hope to have available at Amazon by the end of February.
And if you haven’t checked it out already, here’s a link to the first volume of that cookbook series:

How’s this for a yummy looking salad? 🙂
After recently reading the much-talked about Wheat Belly diet book; I’ve been experimenting with cutting down on wheat in my diet.
Although I am not gluten-intolerant, there appears to be a lot of health benefits for cutting back on wheat and also all refined forms of carbohydrates. I’ve effortlessly lost 5 pounds since I started my wheat-reduction experiment, about a month ago.
But it is a transition, especially when some of my fav foods include bread, pasta, muffins… So when I found out about The Complete Gluten-Free Whole Grains Cookbook by one of my favorite cookbook authors: Judith Finlayson I was very happy!
Judith has done a great job (again) with her latest cookbook.
Not only does this beautiful cookbook provide 125 gluten-free whole grain recipes with everything from soups to desserts (and with full color photos throughout) it is also an excellent resource for anyone who is following or considering a gluten-free diet . Or like me, just attempting to cut down on foods containing wheat and gluten.
There is a detailed and very helpful section at the beginning of the book, that features listings for many popular gluten-free grains such as: quinoa, wild rice, amaranth, kasha….and many more. Including tips for cooking and storing the various grains and nutritional information.
Judith Finlayson focuses on healthier choices to wheat in our diet, not just substituting other (less than desirable) starches as is the case with too many other gluten-free cookbooks that I’ve looked at. These are healthy and delicious recipes that make transitioning from wheat and other foods containing gluten, easy and fun.
I’ve made a few recipes from this cookbook already and this salad is my fav to date.
Just yummy and so colorful too.
I’m a big fan of beets. They are a veggie that IMO don’t get enough credit/use when it comes to adding them to a variety of recipes, especially salads. You will love this salad, especially if you love beets!
Would make a great addition to a picnic, potluck or BBQ menu! 🙂
