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.

grandma's garden

everyone has a favorite flower or one that reminds them of days gone by.  for me, the old fashioned forget me nots are one of my classic favorite flowers.  forget me nots are an earlier spring bloomer that seem to cover the ground and multiply easily every year.  the small blue flowers grow low to the ground and almost form a carpet of blue as they spread between other perennials. the flowers complement my grape hyacinths, yellow daffodils and blue flowering myrtle.

these plants were a gift from a gardening friend and will continue to remind me of her lovely garden for years to come.
