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.

christmas meal planning

i have been working on holiday menus for the past week. over the years i have collected many christmas books, and these are three of my favorites.  country living's country christmas contains a variety of recipes as well as decorating ideas for the holiday.  martha stewart's books always include wonderful ideas for wreaths, table arrangements, as well as menu ideas and desserts.

i have been reading susan branch's book for wonderful poems, phrases, and delightful drawings about winter and the christmas season. her hand painted drawings are colorful and charming. i have found several ideas for this year's celebration.
