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.

grilled chicken tacos

stovetop grilling is a great way to prepare these easy chicken grilled tacos.  prepare the chicken by slicing into strips and marinate in your favorite marinade.  using one with a lime juice base compliments the flavors of the mexican dish.  after the chicken is grilled, i grill the other vegetables; onions, tomatoes, and peppers.  once all the cooked toppings are prepared, melt shredded cheddar on the whole wheat shells in a 350 degree oven for a couple of minutes.  then add the cooked toppings to the center of the tacos, and return to the oven to warm for about 5 minutes.  remove and add the cold toppings. for this dinner, i used shredded lettuce, sliced black olives, shredded onion, and light sour cream. roll the shell into a log and slice in half to serve. this meal can be accompanied with spanish rice or just a side salad.
