My dear mom made these too.
What bliss after school with an ice-cold glass of Mmoooo….teehee…that’s what we called milk. 😉
My favorite cake, no contest!
Just add dark rye bread and you’re good to go! 😉
One of my fav slow cooker recipes from the Groovy Green Kitchen I.
I make this one a lot. Quick to prepare, hearty and delicious.
And, it includes: onions, garlic and potatoes: all fav rooties! 🙂
A delish and elegant salad; brimming with flavor!
A twist on traditional lasagna, again from the slow cooker. Hearty and delish!

Are you a fan of KALE?
Can’t say that I have been to date, 😉 in spite of liking almost every other kind of veggie there is!
But this post over at Girl Eats Greens grabbed my attention today, as I browsed the WP Reader.
Looks so yummy and healthy too. 🙂
Happy Eating and Week! G
One of my favorite things about spring turning into summer is all the deliciousness that continues to show up at my local farmer’s market. While I don’t buy all my groceries there, I do spend time every Sunday walking along with my pup and seeing what’s new to the market. What I’ve seen a lot lately? Fiddleheads. I have no idea what to do with them. But I’m dying to try them. I also stumbled upon a bunch of bright red radishes.
Growing up, I was never a fan of radishes, I thought they were too bitter. But as I’m getting older I think a lot of it had to do with the preparation of the radishes. As in, there wasn’t any. I was handed a whole radish to pop into dill dip. Radishes can have a pretty strong flavor – but if you break them down, thinly slice or…

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:
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:
….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
I’m NOT a big fan of pretzels but I DO use them when I make:
The problem is, where we live, there seems to be no small bags of pretzels, just LARGE BAGS that leave me with a lot left over, when I make a batch of party mix.
Thought I’d check out some other ideas for using up pretzels today and I found this list:
I’m still undecided what I’m going to try from this list, maybe the Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars or the snack mix.
But I definitely will be able to use up those pretzels! 😉
Do you like pretzels? Have any recipes to share that include pretzels? Please do! 😉
Woohooo, 🙂 my 500th follower signed up at Veggies…this past week.
I am so grateful to everyone who follows Veggies, Yarns & Tails and at my other two blogs:
And also, to be able to enjoy hundreds of my fav WP blogs each week. What fun it’s been to get to know so many of you via WordPress. Isn’t the Internet grand???
I’ve been blogging (on and off) for a lot of years. I’ve had one blog, I’ve had 4 at times, now I have 3.
There were times when I was very busy offline and I actually stopped blogging entirely, for months at a time. But I always missed it and I always came back. Can you relate? 😉
I’ll be back next week with a post about why I ♥ my slow cooker, sooooo….much. With some recipe too, of course. 😉
Have a wonderful weekend! And cyber-hugs to all 500 of you! 😉
I ♥♥♥ all kinds of hummus!
I thought this was a great list that I noted on my WP Reader this morning.
I’m definitely going to try the beet hummus, sounds so good.
And you already know how much I ♥ beets, if you’re a regular reader here. 😉
Happy Cooking and Weekend, G
According to my office wall calendar, today is:
I also noted online that tomorrow, October 1st is World Vegetarian Day.
So make sure to hug all the vegetarians you know today and tomorrow. 😉
On a personal note, I’ve been a vegetarian for many years and have never regretted my decision to give up eating meat.
More and more people continue to embrace a vegetarian diet, for a number of reasons and there are millions of vegetarians around the world.
For me, it’s always been mainly an ethical choice to not eat meat, due in large part to reading: Diet for a New America by John Robbins, several years ago. I was shocked and saddened by what I read in that book and I never forgot it. 😦 I had been eating less and less meat for years, before reading that book. And after finishing the book (and it’s a very tough book to read, if you love animals) I gave it up completely.
On the plus side, I’ve been healthier and happier since I became a vegetarian and delighted by all the good things that can be created in the kitchen without any meat.
If you are in need of some vegetarian recipe inspiration, do check out the extensive recipe archives here at Veggies….
You can also check out my two cookbooks at Amazon.com:
Not Just for Vegetarians (print version only) and The Groovy Green Kitchen: Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker (print and Kindle versions)
Have a Wonderful Week and Sending Lots of Hugs to YOU (to the meat-eaters too)!
