A–Z Vegetable Cookbook

Just in time for all that local produce starting to appear in gardens, farmers’ markets and even grocery stores….a new vegetable cookbook. I’m very excited about the way my revised vegetable cookbook looks. Formac Publishing did a fabulous job of bringing my 1983 vegetable book into this century. They left the beautiful illustrations that I love so much, but added a bit of colour to the pages in the titles and hints. I have left in all the history, choosing, storing and general cooking information for each vegetable, but have added even more information as well as some vegetables I didn’t feature last time. In addition, I took out a few recipes that seemed no longer relevant, but left in some classic favourites and added 100 new recipes, especially more ethnic ones, that will have great current appeal. As well, there is a whole chapter devoted to Vegetarian Main Dishes…enough for several weeks of Meatless Mondays!
There is a good index, but because it’s an A–Z Vegetable Cookbook, you can easily leaf through to find the vegetable you just picked and a recipe to capture its goodness.

Check out Daytime in November

The Rogers Daytime host just called to say the taping was cancelled for today. We’ll pick a date some time in November for me to cook up a quick and easy dish. In the meantime, enjoy the Black Bean and Chicken Soup on my recipe page.

Chicken and Black Bean Soup on Rogers Daytime

Today, I’ll be preparing a quick and easy soup from my reprinted 125 Best Chicken Recipes (Robert Rose). I thought you might still have a few slices of Monday’s turkey in the refrigerator, and this is an excellent way to use it. Or, you might even cook some chicken just to try this intriguing recipe, a perfect fall lunch. Look in my Recipe page.

A Quick Stew on CTV Noon News

Tomorrow, I will make the Quick Smoked Sausage Stew with Pasta from my 125 Best Casseroles and One-Pot Meals cookbook reprinted this year by Robert Rose publishers. I thought it would be an appropriate recipe for families starting out the new school year with its many after-class activities. It is also a perfect one-dish supper for university kids cooking on their own for the first time. Check out my recipe page for the stew.
