Cookbook Countdown! ;-)

I’m type, type, typing…. away!!!

I’ve made the end of February, my deadline for finishing my newest cookbook (print and Kindle/eBook versions):

The Groovy Green Kitchen II: Simply, Super, Supper Soups

I think I can still reach my time goal; I am on the home stretch. 😉

I don’t know why this particular book project has taken me sooooo long to complete.

But right now, I’m just focused on the fact that it IS almost complete and that’s a good thing! 🙂

In the meantime, I am having a free Kindle promo this weekend for my other GGK cookbook:


The Groovy Green Kitchen I: Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker

It will be available as a free Kindle/eBook download, all this weekend (Feb. 20-22) at:

Amazon.com, .ca, UK….


And here’s a sample soup recipe from the GGK II:

Southern Nights Slow Cooker Veggie and Sausage Gumbo…

….to get your taste-buds ready for the full collection. 😉

In addition to lots of great soups in this new book/eBook, there’s a variety of side dishes to go along with them. 

Wish me luck for finishing “on time” and happy weekend, G 

It’s Root Veggie Time Again!

I love root veggies of all kinds. Turnips, potatoes, carrots…but most of all I beets!

Last week I made a big batch of my favorite soup (pictured above) Russian Beet Borscht from my cookbook: Not Just for Vegetarians. Along with it, a yummy loaf of  Rye and Fennel Seed bread, a new recipe I just created. I can’t share that one ’cause it’s one I’m including in the new cookbook I’m working on. 😉 Speaking of that project, it’s going great!

 But I can share my recipe for the borscht, if you haven’t tried it already.

See page 2 of this post for the recipe for : Russian Beet Borscht.

What is your favorite root veggie and if you can, do share a recipe link you have for using it!

Happy Cooking! 🙂

Meal-in-a-Bowl Cabbage Soup


I was browsing through some “old” photos over at my Flickr account the other day and came across this one for Meal-in-a-Bowl Cabbage Soup from Not Just for Vegetarians.

With winter almost getting ready to bid us “farewell” (fingers-crossed) I still think there are quite a few perfect “soup days” to come. 

I think every day is a good soup day actually LOL.  I   all kinds of soups and in the spring summer, winter and fall! . 😉


This is a very filling and flavorful, “chunky-style” vegetable soup. If you like cabbage, you’re going to love this soup.

When I make this recipe, I don’t bother with side dishes or add-ons. Maybe a slice of bread but nothing else.

Makes a generous batch too. I hope you enjoy it soon. 🙂

See page 2 for complete recipe.

Happy Cooking 🙂
