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.

Maine puffy pancake

over the Christmas holiday, i served one of Martha's tasty breakfast recipes.  the Maine puffy pancakes are one of my family's favorites.  the pancakes are mixed and baked in the oven, then cut into segments to serve.

preheat the oven to 425 degrees. use 2 large eggs, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup milk, a pinch of salt and a pinch of cinnamon.  whisk until combined in a bowl.  batter may be lumpy.

for each pancake, melt 1 tbsp. of butter in a pan in the oven prior to pouring the pancake.  bake in the oven about 10 minutes.

serve with syrup, powdered sugar or fruit. hint:  this pancake will flatten, so serve immediately while still warm from the oven. this recipe made one very large pancake as shown, which we divided and shared.
