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.

eton mess

after the royal wedding, i was influenced to try one of the recipes served at the after party for Will and Kate.  Eton mess was a dessert served to them while they were college students and became one of Will's favorites.  there are several varieties of the recipe posted online, however; this one seems to be a great recipe that i tried the evening of the wedding.

crumble Madeline fingers in the bottom of a large clear glass goblet.  other options would be to use crispy meringues.  whip a large bowl of whipping cream until stiff and stir in chopped fresh strawberries.  this mixture is then placed on top of the crispy cookies.  if desired, the cookies can be layered. 

this recipe is light and delicious and can easily be prepared in stages.  crumble the cookies and have on hand.  whip the cream, chop the strawberries and then layer the dessert at the time of serving.
