Green Kitchen Stories
A quick life update. Bill’s broken foot it healing well enough to move into normal foot wear, and we hope to have news on our move this week. In less than two weeks we begin the moving process with a company that organizes, removes and donates. I have never used a service to help with this stage of moving but I am looking forward to the help.
I’m also eager to start traveling again. With Bill and I living between two states and a house for sale… personal travel has been paused. First up is a visit with Andrew to explore DC and northern Virginia in June. I’m starting to get the itch to plan another adventure on the trails. Please let me know if you have any recommendations for us.
Are you busy planning summer travel?
A nod to the Swedes
I discovered Green Kitchen Stories long before they published their first cookbook. In fact, they are one of the first accounts I followed upon joining Instagram years ago. Shortly after discovering Louisa and David I shared their website with a friend who also eats clean/vegetarian. She gifted me their first cookbook, The Green Kitchen, Vegetarian Everyday.
They have written five books to date.
I have been following this couple for close to a decade and they have no wavered on their brand once. You should follow them for their food, lifestyle and photography. While I drool over almost every recipe, most are a stretch for me to make for one but I’m inspired. I often show Bill a recipe and we create something similar, with vegetables he will eat. :)
I just ordered Little Green Kitchen. I have a few children cookbooks from authors/chefs I enjoy… you will be surprised by the amount of recipes you will want to make for everyday eating.
Here are a few recipes that I have made and enjoyed:
Gingerbread and Lingonberry Cake: This is a simple dessert that will amaze your guests.
One Soup Three Ways: I love Tomato soup, was raised on it. Do try the Tortellini drop soup. I made a batch of this soup last weekend. It freezes well and it simply delish!
Red Velvet Soup with Pistachio Dukkah: Look over the list of ingredients and you will love the idea of this soup. It’s easy to make and will impress your dinner guests.
I’m inspired by having this cookbooks on my shelves. They remind me of the endless ways we can prepare a hearty meal. I wonder if they are new to you… how popular are these cookbooks?
