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.

herbed sliced baked potatoes

for a beautiful special presentation for dinners or holiday meals, prepare baked potatoes this way.  slice the potatoes about 2/3 down after scrubbing well.

place the potatoes in a baking dish, and melt 1/4 stick of margarine.  pour margarine over the potatoes and season with your favorite herbs.  i use a mixture of parsley, chives, dill, and ground pepper.

bake at 350 degrees for at least one hour, and the potatoes will gradually begin to fan open.  test for doneness depending on the size of the potato. to serve, gently fan the potato and top with a pat of margarine, butter or sour cream.  the entire potato easily opens and presents beautifully on the dinner plate.
