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.

sauteed squash

for a delicious summer side dish, consider sauteed squash.  i use a combination of yellow and green squash and saute either over the outdoor barbecue grill or indoors in a grill pan.  by using a light coating of olive oil and seasoning with either fresh or dried dill, this recipe comes together in just minutes.

the squash cooks quickly over a medium heat, softens and becomes tender to taste.  this is one recipe that is simple, so should be the last item to prepare on the dinner menu.  when your entree and other sides are near completion, heat the squash and serve hot from the pan.

i have found that zucchini can be flavored easily to match the main dish with a variety of spices to taste.  i prefer dill with chicken and fish, and red or black pepper with parsley for pasta entrees.  experiment with your spice cabinet and see how easy it is to create a great tasting side dish with the summer harvest of squash.
