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.

lemon pasta

using susan branch's recipe for lemon pasta, i made this lemon fettucini one day this week. after the pasta boiled, i combined olive oil, zest from several lemons, juice from 3 lemons, chopped green onion, chopped fresh parsley from my garden, with a dash of salt and pepper. tossing the pasta with this mixture in the heated pan helped to incorporate the ingredients.

when plating the dish, i sprinked pine nuts and grated parmasean cheese on top. the pasta tasted fresh and bright with the lemon zest and it certainly felt like a lighter summer dish. next time, i will add grilled shrimp, asparagus spears or even grilled chicken to make a more filling dish. served with a sliced tomato salad, this was a nice addition to my summer recipes.
