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.

shrimp chinese

here is another alternative for a shrimp main dish or stir fry presentation.  i use jumbo shrimp, clean them and remove the tails.  grill shrimp in a skillet and season with salt, pepper or your favorite shrimp seasoning. 

next, add a selection of vegetables to taste.  i have added fresh broccoli, shredded carrots, canned or fresh mushrooms, water chestnuts or even bamboo shoots.  heat these before preparing the sauce.

i use 1/2 cup of orange marmalade and mix in 1/2 cup of hoisin sauce, heating in a saucepan prior to adding to the dish.  once the sauce is heated through, the dish is done and ready to serve.

this dish can be served with white or brown rice, and even with crispy rice noodles.  this is a great addition to an Asian buffet dinner or for an Asian themed meal. other meal options could include substituting out the shrimp and prepare with pork or chicken.  the sauce is very tasty and versatile.
