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.

vanilla carrots

these thanksgiving dinner carrots were boiled with a vanilla bean.  i simply added the vanilla bean to the water as i cooked the carrots.  after the water was almost evaporated, i added one to two tablespoons of margarine with a couple of tablespoons of light brown sugar.

these carrots have a unique taste that is not top heavy on vanilla flavor, but the bean adds a wonderful depth of flavor to the carrots that complements the sugar.
