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.

green eggs and ham

to celebrate st. Patrick's day this year, i made green eggs and ham omelettes for my family.  here is the omelette during cooking.  i used a mixture of egg beaters and eggs, and whisk them well, pouring into the heated omelette pan.  i usually use a slice of margarine mixed with a couple of teaspoons of olive oil pre-heated in the pan prior to pouring the eggs into the pan.

i added spinach, salt, and pepper.  when the eggs were fully cooked, i added in the deli slice of ham, and folded the omelette over into the traditional shape.  these omelettes will stay warm in the oven while the rest of the omelettes are cooked for the remaining members of the family.

if desired, spinach can be added to the pan first, before the eggs are added.  the omelettes will have more green on the exterior instead of just inside of the dish.
