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.

basic parsley buttered carrots

the addition of mini peeled carrots to the marketplace produce aisle is a true time savor.  there is no longer any excuse for not serving this vegetable each week. carrots are  a wonderful colorful vegetable that offer a host of nutrients for the body and must be selected for family meals.

i simply boil the carrots until tender and drain. then, i use a bit of margarine and parsley before serving them for dinner.  another great carrot recipe is to drain the carrots and add a couple of tablespoons of margarine and one tablespoon of brown sugar while still in the saucepan to create a wonderful glaze to the serving.

i find that mixing the margarine in while the carrots are still hot in the pan offers far less use of margarine at the table.
