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.

cold brewed tea

for years we have been making sun tea, but i found a new product on one of my trips up north in michigan called twinings cold brewed iced tea.  i really didn't believe that it would work, but within five minutes, i had fresh brewed tea that i served over ice. i simply added the tea bags into cold water and watched the tea brew right on my kitchen counter.

twinings suggested using 4 tea bags per quart pitcher, however; i only used 2 per quart carafe, and that was plenty for me.  i may even just use one tea bag the next time, as i prefer lightly brewed tea to decrease the caffeine intake.

so easy and so refreshing!
