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.

ginger and cream biscuits

cook's illustrated offers a variety of great simple recipes, and this one is a classic.  it can be varied a number of different ways for breakfast, lunch or tea.  these biscuits use the standard ingredients including heavy cream, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  but, the choices make the difference. 

for these, i  tried crystallized ginger. using only 3 tablespoons mixed into the batter made the difference.  they were tasty and not sweet.  personally, i think even adding more would make the biscuit even more flavorful.  other suggestions given in the recipe would be to make these biscuits adding fresh herbs or 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese.  baking time would increase by a minute or two to make certain the cheese is fully incorporated.
