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.

cinnamon almond ice cream

for the fall, i wanted to try a new flavor of homemade ice cream.  i found a recipe in Susan branch's autumn cookbook for cinnamon ice cream.  since i have been reading many articles about the benefits of cinnamon, i decided to adapt her more complicated recipe to my standard recipe with a few changes.

following my standard ice cream recipe on the blog, add a heaping teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the mixture and substitute almond extract for the vanilla extract.  i also added some chopped sliced almonds at the end of the processing cycle in the ice cream machine.

i feel like i have discovered a really new and delicious flavor of ice cream.  once again, homemade ice cream is so creamy and delicious, much better than any store bought brand.
