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.

breakfast fruit butters

although trying to maintain a lower carbohydrate diet, sometimes a breakfast treat has to be available.  fruit butters add so much flavor and glamour to any breakfast bread selection.  these two butters are simply made with favorite jam flavors.  i used 1 tablespoon of red raspberry jam with one-quarter stick of softened margarine.  for the other one, i used 1 tablespoon of orange marmalade mixed with the same portion of margarine.

most recipes use freshly mashed fruit for the butters, and of course "real" butter.  i think using lower fat margarine works just as well and the taste from the jam is wonderful. 

try this easy way to brighten up your breakfast table, as these can be served with muffins, scones, croissants or even toast.
