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.

broccoli almond salad

a couple of weeks ago, we had some warm temperatures in midland, and i decided to take out my summer salad recipes and prepare one for dinner.  this is one of my favorites and very easy to make.

in a mixing bowl, combine these ingredients:  6 cups of fresh broccoli florets, 1/2 cup chopped celery, 1/2 cup raisins, 10 slices of baked bacon that has been cooled and crumbled, and 3 sliced green onions.

next, mix 2/3 cup light or fat free mayonnaise, 1/4 cup heated honey, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. pour over salad and toss to coat the ingredients.  stir in about 4 ounces of almonds just before serving.
