welcome

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.

almond chocolate chip ice cream

another one of my favorite ice cream flavors made in the Cuisinart ice cream maker is almond chocolate chip.  i use the basic recipe for ice cream in the maker, which is:  2 cups of whipping cream, 1 cup of half and half, 3/4 cup of sugar, a pinch of salt, and 1 tablespoon of extract.  in this case, i used almond.  i then place in the chilled maker and process for 25 minutes.  when the mixture has thickened, i add the chocolate chips and incorporate.  to finish, i place in a stainless steel dish and freeze for 6 or more hours before serving.  this ice cream is very tasty and is wonderful served with cookies, cake, or just alone.
