Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

fancy baked potatoes

this is my favorite way to serve baked potatoes. i simply scrub the potatoes and slice part way down the potato in thin slices, not all the way through. then, i top the potatoes with a spray of olive oil and a dusting of herbs. this shortens the baking time to about 45 minutes. after removing from the oven, i slightly fan the potatoes, if they have not already opened on their own. either offer an herbed butter at the table or gently top with a small spoonful with the serving. guests will enjoy a nicely baked potato with a bit of flair.
