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.

tea and christmas peppermint spoons

since i am an avid tea drinker i often sample a variety of teas each week.  although my preference is for green tea, and choose that over many others, i do enjoy all teas made by tea forte. these teas are prepared in silken infusers and allow the tea leaves to gently infuse into the hot water. i believe this accounts for their superior taste.

for the holidays, i purchased their collection which contains crimson nectar, apple pomegranate, and sweet orange spice.  i have been waiting to sample them, and just admiring them in my spode christmas bowl in the dining room.  these teas are more costly than standard tea bags and average two dollars per serving.

also for the holidays, i purchased peppermint tea spoons that can be used in tea, coffee or hot cocoa. i believe i will use them in hot cocoa on a snowy evening by the fireside.  a warm drink, a cozy fireplace, and someone to love makes the season wonderful.
