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.

roasted granny smith apple and pears

one of my favorite treats is warmed breakfast fruit.  i usually like to serve warm fruit for holiday meals, and this year was no exception. for Easter, i prepared this recipe of roasted granny smith apples and pears.

here are the directions:
core, peel and slice 2-3 granny smith apples
core, peel and slice 2 large green pears
1/4 cup raisins or cranberries
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons honey (i used orange flavored honey this year)
2 teaspoons fresh orange peel or grated rind

preheat oven to 350 degrees.  combine apples, pears and raisins in a 1 1/2 quart baking dish.  toss well.
combine water, honey and orange peel in a bowl.  pour over the apples.

cover and bake for at least 45 minutes.  serve warm.  this recipe will easily serve 8 people for breakfast.
this dish is a nice complement to eggs or french toast.

this dish will stay warm in the oven covered with foil or in a chafing dish. it will reheat the next day in the microwave and still keep texture and taste.
