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.

sunday is for grilling out

one of the best things about the weekend is grilling out fresh vegetables to serve as a side dish along with chicken or fish. one of my favorite mixtures is always, sliced onions, yellow bell peppers, asparagus and zucchini slices. these sliced vegetables with a drizzle of olive oil and a few fresh herbs take only minutes to soften and cook on the grill.

the herbs from the garden that added to the taste of the vegetables were basil and parsley. i also seasoned them with ground black pepper, a twist of salt over the top, and my favorite all around seasoning from Mary's Kitchen Port in Traverse City. Her seasoning blend is a great mix of flavors that I often use for chicken, fish, and vegetables.

Along with these vegetables, I served grilled chicken with the same seasonings to match the taste. We also had some breadsticks with chive butter. This was another simple grilled meal for a summer evening to enjoy on the deck.
