OK, Kraft know’s what’s cooking

Kraft Foods has a free quarterly cooking magazine called What’s Cooking that features their products in an array of seasonal recipes for every meal of the day.

If you are looking for some extra food inspiration in your mailbox every few months, then check out this magazine. I have been on their mailing list for years, so I can say with honesty that it is a good freebie – especially if you already like Kraft products.

I love it when What’s Cooking arrives in the mail each season, and although it is a fun read I dont always make the recipes. But this latest issue has some rocking salad recipes and hit the mark for me. This one I am having for lunch tomorrow: Bulgar & Beans.

Beans & Bulgar salad: I made this earlier tonight, easy-peasy on American Idol commercial breaks. Yup.

Let me know if you try any other recipes from this issue?!

As I looked back on my list of blog or bust shares I realize I have yet to include the Vancouver-Vegetarians! So this share #29 goes out to my veggie-delight readers and anyone who loves a good garden salad – visit Sweet On Veg.

To be honest, looking for a vegetarian Vancouver based food blog wasn’t as easy to find as I thought. But when I found Sweet On Veg, it kinda of blew me away. Heavy on the photos, recipes, and inspirational phrases, Jennifer (blog-host) has done a great job channeling culinary-inspiration in her site. There really are some tasty looking recipes paired with fab-photos!

Check out her BLISS section in the navigation bar for inspirational quotes. I guarantee, if you spend just a few minutes on this site, you’ll leave feeling inspired to treat your body right and live a little bit healthier. What’s your favourite quote?

Do you know any other vegetarian blogs in Vancouver? Send my way! …Actually, uhh, wait, I just looked a little harder and found these two others also in Vancouver: Vegans Eat Pencil Shavings & The Vegan Project
