Raiding My Cookbook Stash! ;-)

cookbooks 2

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! 🙂

Simply, Super Summer Salads!

For me when it comes to food, nothing says SUMMER like a beautiful, fresh SALAD! 🙂

Here are some of my fav salads from the Veggie archives.

Hope you enjoy one or all of them soon.

Potato salad.

Don’t ya just love it? 😉

It’s such a summer/picnic/BBQ favorite.

                                             

I love all kinds of potato salad. Particularly recipes with lots of fresh dill included.

I recently tried this amazing Dilly Potato Salad (pictured above) from the cookbook:

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Sensational Salads by Leslie Bilberback.

                                 

Chef Bilberback has kindly allowed me to share the recipe for this yummy salad with you.

And just in time for July 1st and July 4th holidays, coming up in the next few days.

See the complete recipe on page two.

And if you are looking for lots of great salad recipes that are quick and easy to prepare, this is definitely a cookbook you might want to add to your collection. I’m looking foward to trying a lot more in the near futureI ♥ (all kinds) of  salads.

                                     

Happy July 1st and July 4th. 🙂
