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.

shrimp and chicken wraps

are you looking for a meal in minutes? these low carb wraps are easy to make and can be ready to serve very quickly. i purchase whole wheat low carb low fat wraps and brown them lightly in a skillet on the stove. usually this can be done with a light spray of pam olive oil on the wrap.

in a separate skillet, i grill sliced onions, peppers, and mushrooms. to this mixture i add, shrimp and cook thoroughly. then, i add chopped pre roasted white meat chicken breast. i usually roast the chicken breasts on the bone earlier in the day and cool them in the refrigerator. just before dinner time, i remove the meat from the bone and chop. this step saves a great deal of time.

when the skillet mixture is ready, i serve on the shell, and add freshly cut toppings. today, i used cucumber, grape tomatoes, dry cole slaw mix and sliced romaine lettuce.

to finish off the wrap, i drizzle marzetti poppy seed dressing. this wrap is very tasty and could be made with a variety of toppings based on personal preferences.
