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.

cherry muffins

 for your next special breakfast, try these cherry muffins.  they are made with dried Michigan cherries.

to make these quick muffins, preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  then mix 2 cups flour, with 3 tsp of baking powder, 6 tablespoons of white sugar, and 1/2 tsp salt.  next add 1 egg, 1 cup milk and 3 tablespoons of melted margarine.

mix all to incorporate, and then add 1/2 cup of dried cherries which have been sliced in half or smaller.

fill muffin pan about 2/3 batter per cup.  bake 25 to 30 minutes.  cool and remove from pan to serve with tea, coffee or breakfast.  these are wonderful warm from the oven and can be served with any egg dish. the muffins rise beautifully in the tin and make a nice presentation.
