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.

fall baked apples

every fall i like to bake apples that can be served with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. first, i core the apples and take a small amount of the top from the apple.  the apples are placed in a baking dish with a small amount of water in the dish. 

for the mixture, i use brown sugar, cinnamon, chopped nuts, and a bit of maple syrup.  after placing the mixture into the apples, i place a small slice of margarine on top of each apple.  the apples are baked at 350 degrees for at least 40 minutes.  it is important to check the apples during the cooking time, depending on the size of each apple.  some apples may take 60 minutes to bake, others may only take 40 minutes. 

these apples are wonderful served warm for a great fall dessert.
