This and that from far and wide February 2016

Hello, we hope your week is going great on this first day in February. Take a look at what friends and other blogger are cooking up currently or have enjoyed in the past. So much information and recipes from current and older posts on just about every blog, today I am sharing these.....

Luscious Lemon Bars. Nothing if more enjoyable in the winter, than a citrus recipe. These cookies are like sunshine in a pan, with a really easy crust, I can't wait to make them.

Five homemade salad dressing recipes, maybe a new one to enjoy. Fresh, homemade salad dressings are high on my list of recipes to collect. From the store, it is expensive and I don't always want to eat something on that list of ingredients!

Have you heard about Tomato Soup Cake? This is an oldie but a goodie! Have you tried it? Tomato Soup Cake is delicious. I remember it well from my childhood, which will tell you how old this recipe is!

Feta cheese and preserved lemons, sound intriguing. And since I have developed a deep attachment to Feta cheese, I really must give this a try.

Homemade naturally sweetened truffles brought to you just in time for Valentine's Day. Truffles made with everyday ingredients are even better.

Celery Root Slaw, a non lettuce salad

I can now say that the end is in sight! We are set to close on the house on the peninsula by the end of February. While this road has been long and a bit twisted with disappointments, we have found the perfect home for retirement!


The only thing left to do besides the actual physical move, is to get back to cooking.....

I am starting with this salad because it is delicious, and more vegetables at the table is always a good thing. I have become interested in eating more salads, especially non-lettuce salads. I also like a slaw type salad, but currently do not eat (tolerate) a lot of uncooked cabbage. This wonderful salad is the answer to both. Terry and I made this salad together, cooking together is always a fun time.


Celery Root Slaw
adapted from: simply recipes
serves 4-6

1 medium celery root (the size of a BIG grapefruit)
1 green apple
2-3 carrots

1/2 c mayonnaise
1 T dijon mustard
1 T fresh lemon juice
OR
1 T Quick Pickled Onion vinegar
2 T fresh chopped parsley



Peel and shred celery root, apple and carrots.


Combine dressing ingredients, whisking until smooth. Fold everything together.

Let sit while putting dinner on the table, and enjoy!

Update, I took the leftover slaw for my lunch with some crumbled feta over the top. Salty feta is delicious with the lightly sweet flavor and mild crunch of the vegetables. I will definitely make this again!
