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.

up north flowers

we spent the day shopping in petoskey, harbor springs and charlevoix yesterday.  the flowers along the street are just splendid.  i truly enjoy stopping and looking at the individuality of each shopkeeper's street flowers, and they certainly make a lovely entrance to their store.

each of these three cities have a wonderful selection of gift shops, art, boutiques, and food stores.  we enjoy visiting american spoon foods in charlevoix and cutler's kitchen and home shop in petoskey.  i also enjoy horizon books in traverse city and petoskey. their selection of gardening and cooking books, as well as their books about michigan life are not the standard fare found in most traditional book stores.
