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.

enjoy these simple scones for a wonderful breakfast treat any weekend morning.  first, heat the oven to 400 degrees.  in a large bowl, mix 1 3/4 cup flour, with 1/3 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.  then add, 1/3 cup of unsalted butter cut into the mixture until crumbly.

the add, 1/3 cup of milk or half and half.  and, 1 egg, beaten.  when mixed, add 1/2 cup of dried cherries.  mix together well and then place dough on a slight floured board.  pat into a circle about 8 inches wide.  place the round onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  sprinkle the top with sugar.  lightly score the circle into segments, but do not cut apart.  bake for 15 to 18 minutes until golden brown.

this is delicious warm from the oven, served with fruit, tea or coffee.
