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.

cookbook reading on a snowy day in michigan

sara foster has been one of my favorite cookbook authors for several years now. i own three of her cookbooks and have made many recipes from the foster market cookbook.  these two books of hers are filled with wonderful recipes that are quick and easy to prepare and have a basic essence of good old fashioned home cooking.  the ingredients are easy to find, and are most often in the pantry already. i highly recommend any of her books.  she was originally a caterer who worked with Martha Stewart and then moved to north carolina and began her own business more than 25 years ago.

since i have a collection of le creuset bakeware, i purchased this cookbook as a way to expand my basic recipes into a more diverse collection of soups, stews and other hearty main dishes. reading this cookbook on a snowy afternoon in the winter challenges me to prepare a warm and comforting dinner for my hubby tonight.
