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.

dried shiitake mushrooms

these dried shiitake mushrooms are an amazing product.  i find them just over the produce in the refrigerated speciality item section of the market.  i have purchased several different packages of mushrooms, and when i need to have fresh mushrooms for a recipe, i turn to these in my pantry.  when they are reconstituted with boiling water, they are very close to a fresh mushroom product.  i have used these in soups, stews, bread dressings, and even mixed with fresh green beans for a side dish.

better than canned mushrooms, without sodium added, this is a product i recommend to have in the pantry for those last minute needs for fresh mushrooms in dinner recipes.
