Cook Up with Dzintra!






Time is flying, summer is in full swing, and I so miss blog world and friends here...





This has been a challenging year in several respects, but throughout all of the changes, my mind was on blogging...
For me, this a place of friendship, beauty, and inspiration...I knew I had to come back as soon as possible...


So here are a couple of updates from me, and I'm looking forward to visiting all of you to see what you've been up to!



We had a luscious spring...


















A "real" spring in Minnesota is quite a treat...
:)




My aforementioned Donna Hay cook-up turned out beautifully...
so delicious...Dzintra has a lovely one up now, do visit her blog if you get a chance...


Once again, I'm cooking now from the books instead of magazines...and although her books are wonderful, I miss the gorgeous glossies.






For this cook-up, I made...



Green Olive Baked Chicken
(p.80)









Asparagus and Potatoes with Lemon Butter
(p.144)









And for a refreshing dessert...


Lemon Pudding
(p.178)









It was a truly perfect springtime menu...
simple and fresh ingredients 
combined in a most delicious way.




Sending out love and wishes 
for a safe and happy 
4th of July!

Spring Songs

And Happy Autumn to dear blog friends in the S.H.!


Things aren't blooming around here quite yet,
(in fact, we are expecting snow tonight)
but the sweet birds are singing...

I'm very happy to be blogging again, and excited to continue with lovely  Dzintra's Donna Hay cook-ups...
Sadly, I don't have access to the gorgeous magazines anymore, but my library carries many of her books.






In the coming days I will be cooking from
"The Instant Cook"







A dear friend was kind enough to gift me this beautiful book, and I can't wait to get started on the recipes and share the results with you...
I hope the new season brings many joys to you all!


Thank you so very much for your kindness, dear friends and readers....
for sticking with me throughout my "holiday hiatus"...
:)
