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.

flag cupcakes

i was looking at photos this week of some of the different desserts i prepared this summer, and found these flag cupcakes.  for the fourth of July, i used the decorating techniques from Martha's blog and created a few cupcakes for our family. 

these traditional flag cupcakes can be adapted for any of the flag holidays, including labor day, flag day, memorial day, or even the presidential holidays in February.  by using red licorice and blue candy dots, the decorating technique only takes minutes.

this design could be adapted for football season as well using team colors in dots or using the colored flavored licorice for the team letters. i am already planning some Michigan cupcakes with maize and blue candy decorations.
