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.

oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies

for the fourth of july, everyone likes traditional desserts.  this cookie is soft and chewy with chunks of chocolate and walnuts.  the recipe was found in my williams sonoma picnics and tailgates cookbook, where a great number of their recipes are classic, portable, and easy to prepare.  unlike most cookies with oats, this recipe has less flour than expected compared to the unsalted butter ratio.  therefore, the cookies do spread about two inches on the baking sheet. if you are looking for something different than the traditional chocolate chip, try a combination cookie with lots of flavor while keeping a classic taste.
